The Five Parks
Choose from five Holiday Parks in beautiful locations around Dorset. Whether you prefer the coast or the countryside, a buzz of activity or peace & quiet, you will find the right Park for you.
As you approach the Park down a hidden country lane, the clifftop peak of Golden Cap looms above you. Turn the final bend for Seatown Beach and Golden Cap Holiday Park comes into view, with 2,000 acres of National Trust land and a rugged coastline waiting to be explored. Being a Holiday Home Owner at Golden Cap means you have a choice of four separate areas of the Park being reserved exclusively for Holiday Home Owners – West Seatown, Millfield, North Alberlon and South Alberlon. All areas offer a different vista and well maintained and landscaped grounds.
The Park Entrance with its Reception, Shop, Visitor Information, Sales Office and Pizza Takeaway is right next to the South West Coast Path and just 150 yards from the beach. The Park is situated in a quiet valley next to the River Winniford and many areas of the Park have beautiful views of the surrounding hills and countryside. Golden Cap is located close to many great places on the Jurassic Coast and is just a short drive or 2-3 hour coastal walk from Lyme Regis, Charmouth, Eype and West Bay. The Park is also within a 15 minute walk of three excellent village pubs.
Surrounded by farmer’s fields, rolling hills and the meandering River Bride, Graston Copse is a fabulous retreat for nature lovers looking for their own oasis in the countryside. With open space for children to play and the village of Burton Bradstock ten minutes away along a riverside walk, Graston Copse is a special place where memories are made. Listen out for the bleat of the lambs, the hammer of the woodpecker or the swoosh of the buzzard. The beautiful Burton Beach with it’s towering golden cliffs, the South West Coast Path and the award-winning Hive Beach Café is just a 30 minute walk from the Park.
Relax on your Holiday Home decking and marvel at the beauty of the setting sun and a canopy of twinkling stars – find out more about stargazing on our Parks. It is moments like this, whilst enjoying a glass of wine, that the benefits of being a Holiday Home Owner can be truly appreciated. Follow the river past 16th and 17th century thatched cottages, to the ‘chocolate box’ village of Burton Bradstock with its two village pubs and traditional farm shops. The Park benefits from an abundance of wildlife and is peaceful and quiet. Enjoy a morning stroll alongside the river and around the woodland walk, while dog owners will appreciate the large dog exercising field where dogs can play off the lead.
If you dream of a remote bolthole that is well off the beaten track then Sandyholme Holiday Park awaits your discovery. Flanked by meadows and fields, the cows calming moos and clucking pheasants, it is easy to see why Sandyholme Holiday Park has been the recipient of the David Bellamy Gold Conservation Award for the past 5 years, in recognition of the Park’s harmony with nature and the environment. The network of interconnecting country lanes and rivers are a joy for walkers and cyclists and the verges approaching the Park are carpeted in green and yellow as the daffodils spring into bloom. Village fairs, country pubs and farm shops are all waiting to be discovered nearby.
While Sandyholme is peaceful and off the beaten track, civilisation is not far away. The Park has a perfect location for exploring the Jurassic Coast and many historic towns in the county. Within a 7 mile drive of the Park you will come across the iconic Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove, the resort of Weymouth, the market and county town of Dorchester as well as some of the biggest and best attractions in Dorset – The Tank Museum and Monkey World. Venture slightly further afield and you can visit beautiful places like Swanage, Corfe Castle, Old Harry Rocks, Portland Bill and Studland Bay. On the dog-friendly Park, you will find a Park Reception, Park Shop, wildlife lake, children’s play park and playing field.
Nestled in the foot of the Bride Valley, just a five minute walk from both the 16th Century village of Burton Bradstock and Burton Beach on the Jurassic Coast, Larkfield Holiday Park is an exclusive owners-only Park. Part of the iconic Chesil Beach, the Jurassic Coast and located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the beach with its golden cliffs is a special place in Dorset. Not only is Larkfield dog friendly like all of our Parks, there are two quality village pubs, a post office / farm shop and a convenience store, all within a five minute walk. The Holiday Homes are all set in spacious well-maintained grounds and it’s the peace and quiet that make Larkfield such a popular location for couples and families to own a relaxing countryside retreat near the coast.
New for 2017, we have a brand new Lodge development on the Park. This development consists of 24 high-end and luxurious Lodge Holiday Homes for Sale, within a 5-10 minute walk to the coast. Enjoy a dream lifestyle in a beautiful Holiday Home that benefits from a 46 week / 10.5 month season, landscapes and manicured grounds, a 35 year licence and a private parking space.

Sat proudly on the clifftop with stunning views over miles and miles of Jurassic Coast, families have enjoyed visiting Highlands for over fourty-five years. The facilities on this five star Park (open to owners at any of our Parks), the fantastic views and the variety of walks around the local area appeal to both families and those lucky enough to be enjoying retirement. Visit the newly refurbished and extended Martin’s Bar & Restaurant (finished May 2017), with its unique display of fire engine memorabilia, relaxed atmosphere, home cooking and fantastic Sunday roast. After a delicious meal, enjoy an afternoon walk with direct access from the Park onto the South West Coast Path with journeys east or west towards West Bay, Eype Beach and beyond. Relax and recover with a visit to the Leisure Club with an indoor heated swimming pool, gym, sauna and steam room. Also on the Park, you will find the Cowshed Coffee Shop, a Park Shop, two children’s play parks, a tennis court and a 9 hole pitch and putt course with fantastic views.
The Park is close to the market town of Bridport and the fishing village of West Bay. With a reputation for quality food and art, Bridport has a friendly and vibrant culture. The town has a rich history and heritage as one of the leading rope and net making towns in England and is home to the oldest thatched brewery in the country, who have been making traditional ales for over 200 years, many of which you can try on the Park at Martin’s Bar & Restaurant! The independent shops, antiques scene, farmer’s markets, street market and regular food and vintage markets are well loved by locals and holidaymakers alike. Venture a mile south of Bridport or a 15 minute coastal walk from Highlands End and you will find West Bay. The charming harbour has become a famous location thanks to its starring role in the ITV drama ‘Broadchurch’. Enjoy the array of pubs, restaurant, kiosks and cafes, take a dip in the sea or enjoy a boat ride from the harbour.
We think you will agree that across our five Holiday Parks, you will find a location that is perfect for you. Each of the Parks are unique in their location, atmosphere and facilities and we look forward to helping you find your dream Holiday Home.
