Alan Rogers Review

Newlands is well situated on the Jurassic Coast, the first natural World Heritage site in England. A family owned park, it is run with care and enthusiasm by Jackie and Rex Ireland and their daughter, Natalie. It occupies a prominent position beside the road into Charmouth village with rural views southwards to the hills across the valley. The terrain is terraced in two fields to provide over 200 well spaced places for touring units, some for seasonal units and over 80 for caravan holiday homes (36 for hire). The mainly sloping tent field, with some terracing, also has super views towards the sea and Lyme Regis. Electricity (10A) is provided on 160 pitches and 30 have hardstanding, water and drainage.

Other accommodation includes smart pine lodges, apartments and motel rooms. All the facilities are located in a modern building to one side of the wide tarmac entrance. The club bar opens each evening and lunchtimes to suit, and also serves home cooked food (mainly evenings). Family entertainment includes a children’s club during school holidays with Dino Dan the dinosaur. The indoor pool adjoins the bar area and an adjacent outdoor pool is walled, paved and sheltered. A soft ball play area is a welcome addition for wet days. A climb up Stonebarrow hill behind the site is recommended for stunning views. This is a comfortable site for families with the beach and village within easy walking distance, and some evening and family activities.


Two modern, heated toilet blocks provide roomy showers. Baby room. Well stocked shop (Mar-Nov). Licensed club bar (limited hours Nov-Mar). Restaurant (open 18.00-21.00. mid March-early Nov) including takeaway. Outdoor heated pool (supervised in high season; the entrance is key coded). Indoor pool and adventure play areas. Family entertainment. WiFi over site (charged).
