“Superb site”
Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

We have just returned from a 7 night stay at Highlands End. We took our caravan and booked online, opting for a serviced pitch.
The journey to site was straightforward and check in was easy. We were directed to the touring section and told to select our own pitch. We drove around the site twice and found that some pitches were too small for our twin axle van- the pitches on the far left of the site in North Rye Acres are ideal for the big vans but we would have struggled on the smaller pitches, especially if we'd brought our full size awning with us.
Once we'd set up, we took in the magnificent views from the cliff top at the end of the site. A short walk left will take you down to West Bay where Broadchurch was filmed. This is a lovely little harbour village and has a lovely vibe.
On site, there is a bar and restaurant. We didn't try the food so can't comment but the local ales were £3.50 a pint which is about right these days.
Toilet blocks are nice and clean as are the showers.
There is a dog walk as well and we used this twice a day. It was a shame to see that some dog owners couldn't be bothered to pick their dogs mess up. It really stands out on the immaculately cut lawns.
I did notice that there were several large empty gravel pitches on the site, which had amazing views of the sea towards Charmouth. I didn't see these pitches mentioned when booking though and 4 of them were empty for the 7 nights we were there, all with uninterrupted views. Had I have known about these pitches, I would have booked one. I pointed this out to staff and asked why they weren't advertised, and the answer I got was that maybe they had been reserved for the dates I'd requested. I was asked if I wanted to move, but I hadn't brought an Aquaroll with me, else I would have. Sufficed to say that when we return, I shall be booking one of the gravel pitches for the views.
One thing to watch out for are the narrow roads on the site. As we were driving round, the caravan mounted the kerb on one of the bends and scratched the alloy wheels. The only way to avoid this is to take the bends wide and drive onto the grass opposite the kerb. However, this can prove difficult if a motorhome is parked on the grass, as we found out when we left. We observed several caravans mount this same section of kerb whilst we were there. I did report this to the receptionist and she said she'd get someone to look into it. There is no reason for those kerbs to be there in my opinion.
We will return and hopefully soon. This is one of the better sites we've visited.

We stayed over the weekend in our VW, weather wasn't so good on the Friday but the rest of the weekend was fine and we had a pitch with a stunning view looking out to sea and across the bay. Didn't use the awning as, being a cliff top site, it was a bit blowy on the Friday night. The site is very clean and well maintained, good size pitches and the staff are friendly and helpful. We ate in the Inn one evening and the food was excellent, probably one of the best steaks we have eaten for a very long time and some of the best chips we have ever had.............prices were reasonable as well. West Bay is a short stroll away along a coast path and well worth a visit. Would also recommend the market in Bridport which is held on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Just got back from a weekend stay at the holiday park.

We had initially planned to camp. However, the site is on top of the cliff and is very windy. If camping I recommend you have a strong tent. We had trouble getting our up and ended up staying in a holiday home/caravan. (We weren't the only ones struggling, although others with large/strong tents were fine).

The staff were excellent and helped us change our accommodation. they were very friendly.

Caravan was spacious and immaculately clean.

Excellent facilities on site.

Would highly recommend a visit.

On approach up the driveway you can tell you are entering a different leagued holiday park.
With spacious beautifully looked after grounds.
Staff were friendly and welcoming and we even got taken to our caravan and showed how to use items like the fire etc if needed.
We stayed in a fantastic caravan that looked brand new with fantastic views across the Eype valley and sea.
Bar and restaurant is spacious and is very good value for the quality of food, the bar also serves real ale.
Highlands end is also situated within easy reach of places like Weymouth and Lyme Regis.
I would highly recommend this holiday park and me and my family would happily return.

Have just returned from 10 glorious days. We were lucky to have wonderful weather which showcased this site in all its glory. We took our touring caravan plus dog and stayed on an all service pitch. Water, waste and electric were all provided. A TV point would have been helpful as reception was unpredictable. The site and shower block was clean, well managed and the staff friendly and helpful. I bought a 7 swim pass for the pool which was more cost effective than paying daily. The pool facilities were good and I was able to purchase goggles as I'd left mine at home. The walks from site into West Bay, Eype and further afield were stunning and mainly off road. There's a disused railway that takes you from West Bay into Bridport. Make sure you visit the tea room Downhouse farm. Highlands End really have captured a little piece of heaven! Looking forward to a return visit.

This was our first caravaning trip and found this to be a fantastic site, good directions and signposted , friendly helpful staff on reception, in the shop and in the restaurant. Shop prices were very reasonable , we ate in the restaurant on our first night and found the food to be reasonably priced and of adequate quality. We originally booked for 3 nights and extended it for another two nights, we stayed on a grass pitch, lots of water points. Showers and toilets were clean,very well kept site, can't wait to go back again

Visited Highlands End after it was recommended to us.
The site itself is immaculate. Everything from the lawns to the childrens playground is neat and well kept. The caravan we stayed in was the best we've ever stayed in, and we've stayed in quite a few. This thing was like brand new, even had that new car smell about it. Our particular plot (H4) was lovely. Sea view and rolling country it really was a nice place to enjoy a glass of wine on the raised table and chairs in the evening. Near but not too near to the clubhouse noise was never a problem as our van had double glazing. One problem though was with this plot you could not get your car outside your van which was a pain on arriving as it was peeing down. This only affects a handfull of caravans.Eape beach is just a 10 min walk down a coastal path onto a pebble beach. Swimming pool and steam & sauna were also spotless, this was £3.50 a day. Staff were friendly and helpful.
overall, this was a very nice place to stay. The only things that I could possibly moan about (and they're minor moans) are there is no fish and chip shop for miles and the fish and chips in the restraunt was £9 a go. And I paid £15 for WI-FI which to be honest is a bit steep as its a bit hit and miss.

Thank you for your review and it is very nice to read that you thought the site was immaculate and that you were impressed with the quality of the caravan holiday homes. If you did want to visit a fish and chip shop you could walk along the coast path to West Bay and enjoy some fresh fish and chips there, the views are stunning along the coast path and you could have an ice cream for dessert. We hope you will be back to visit again soon.
