10 March 2022

West Bay has a host of options to eat and drink. There are wide selection of cafe’s, pubs and restaurants – some have won national acclaim.

If you’re looking for somewhere a bit different we highly recommend The Station Kitchen. This quirky restaurant is situated within a WW1 train carriage on a disused station. Dishes including steak and seafood are served from the old station house.  They always endeavour to use Dorset produce.

The Watch House Cafe is positioned on the beach and boasts views out to sea. The team offer relaxed dining and a varied menu comprising of home baked cakes, wood fired pizza and fresh sea food.

Rise is an informal cafe bar next to the River Brit. Here you can enjoy a wide variety of dishes – including vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options while admiring the surrounding scenery.

If you fancy a pint with your meal you won’t be short of pubs to choose from. Bridport Arms Hotel is close to the harbour and popular with visitors and locals. The West Bay and The George Inn are also excellent options.

There are plenty of takeaway options at West Bay. Around the harbour there are wide selection of kiosks selling fish and chips, burgers, seafood and sweet treats. Baboo Gelato serve delicious ice cream in lots of unique flavours.

What our guests say

  • The Most Magical Campsite

    We have just come back from the most magical few days staying at Highlands End. In fact, it was so good we extended our stay by a few days whilst on park. We are new to campsites and this was beyond my expectations

  • Wonderful three night stay

    Our pitch was spacious and quiet. The facilities were clean and a generous number of showers etc whatever time we needed them. A very picturesque site and plenty to do straight from the van without the need to drive

  • Beautiful weekend away

    This park is in a wonderful location. The local village is beautiful and only a 15 min walk along the river. The beach is then another 15 minutes along - again a beautiful walk. We were blessed with amazing weather so we spent the afternoon on Hive Beach.

  • Perfect Site, A Complete Gem!

    It's always a bit of gamble going somewhere new, but Eype House Caravan park did not disappoint. Quite the opposite, it exceed all our expectations and we completely fell in love with the place.
