My wife stayed here back in the 70's and kept coming back. we stay here at least 3 - 4 times a year, sometimes staying in the up market lodges, sometimes a static and sometimes a motel room. The best time of year for us is halloween, they pull out all the stops with a haunted house being built in the basement and party games all week prior to halloween.we go to florida every year but the kids always ask if we can fit in a break at Newlands!! They love the kids club although my son now thinks hes too cool! staff are always freindly and site is immaculate. The toilet blocks are more like a hotel than campsite. Its not the cheapest site but certainly the best for my family. Looking forward to Halloween already! Finally in high season there is a great range of nightly entertainment, ghost walks in nearby Lyme and last year UB40's chef made a guest appearance at the site for the season with the best currys around lol.

We have just returned from Newlands holiday park having stayed for a week in the Pearl Apartments. The rooms were clean though rather small, though this was to be expected as they were the cheapest option. The park itself was well laid out and my two year old son had plenty to keep him entertained. The indoor pool was an especially great feature, as was the soft play area, though both were on the small side this still couldn't detract from the fact that on a rainy day they're absolute life savers if you've got young kids. Outside of the park Charmouth is rather charming, Bridport was nice and West Bay had a great beach. I booked this place as a last minute holiday and we certainly had a relaxing break.

Stayed for a week, entertainment and bar was great, but the takeaway was proberbly the best ive had on a holiday park. The young man called matt who served me was a great help in pointing me in the direction of good places to go and also served me my favourite meal of the holiday!!

Just had a short break in a lodge at Newlands Holiday Park with our grandchildren.
Staff really friendly and efficient.Food is excellent. Fish specialities are as good as anywhere I know All childrens facilities were tried and approved by the kids aged 6 and 11. Lodge was perfect for us and great value.Our son and his family have just booked on our recommendation.
Great Place .We will be back.

We camped. Easy access to pitch though steep hills tested the fitness! Ground was like concrete which bent the pegs!
Toilet block was spotless and washing facilities good. Very helpful staff and always cheerful.
Son and partner made an impromptu visit; staff went out of their way to arrange accomodation in a more than adequate ensuite room.
Best site we've stayed on. Kids (4 & 2) loved it. Would highly reccomend.

We stayed here for a week from 22nd July in a pine lodge. We had a wonderful week. Char mouth beach is wonderful with a creek, beach and fossil hunting. The lodge was clean and had everything we needed. The campers we met were happy too. The setting is wonderful with Pine trees and rolling hills in view. The staff were very helpful and great with kids. The indoor pool was great and although the restaurant is quite expensive the quality was good. I had fresh local fish with tarragon butter which was fab. Loved the location and the park. The kids - We have 3 from 6-10 had a wonderful time and took themselves off to the adventure playground when we were getting ready to go out or preparing meals. Can't recommend the onsite organised fossil hunt enough ammonite city. The hunt organised from the char mouth heritage centre by the beach is excellent but book early. We got the last places on the first day of our stay. A great week. Thanks Newlands.

Big disappointment on condition of caravan cleanliness regards to dog hairs on beds bedding lounge furniture and carpets. Considering we pay to take our dogs the money should then be used for the extra cleaning required after a dog, but of course this is a reflection on the owners that allow there dogs to abuse other peoples property..! and this makes it more difficult for us to find accommadation that will take dogs.
I have stayed in Hotels B&Bs and holiday cottages with my dogs and have never experienced this problem with such poor cleaning standards
Luckily we had taken our own sleeping bags so did not have to use the bedding provided.Also spent an hour hoovering the floors,
The holiday site is GREAT but do not stay in a caravan that is let out for accepting dogs......! sorry to say.
