Cliff fall near Highlands End Holiday Park

16 November 2020Holiday Park News

As you may have seen on local or national news, there has been a lot of activity on the coastline at Highlands End Holiday Park over the last 2 to 3 weeks. A 90 metre wide by 15 metre deep stretch of the clifftop between West Bay and Eype was closed off by Dorset Council, after cracks started to appear on the coast path.

Gradually over a number of days, these cracks got bigger and extended back into the recreation area on the holiday park. The situation worsened over the weekend with the stormy weather and in the early hours of Sunday morning (15th November), there was a large fall. This resulted in the fence between the holiday park and the coast path being left suspended in mid air.

The path, which is part of the South West Coast Path, had been diverted through the holiday park and new arrangements will now be made to move the boundary fence further back to keep the coast path open.

A 15 metre deep section of the clifftop has been lost, but it is still 50 metres or more from the nearest pitches on the holiday park. The park reopens on 2nd December (subject to Government guidance), with hard-base pitches for touring caravans and motorhomes open all winter, for the first time in the park’s history, as well as a number of lodges and holiday apartments.

  • 5 out of 5 isn't enough!

    This is simply our favorite touring park along the south coast. The location couldn't be better with views to die for and an abundance of fresh sea air. The park is spic and span and extremely well kept with very friendly staff.

  • A little bit of heaven!

    Golden Cap is a little bit of heaven. The views are awesome, right next to the sea. It's all relaxed and low key just how we like it.

  • A tour of Dorset!

    An excellent Park as a base to visit the Dorset coast, Jurassic Coast, Chesil Beach, Lyme Regis, Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, to name a few.

  • Fantastic Park

    10 out of 10 is not enough for this Holiday Park. We have been here 3 times and we love it more and more every time. The park has all you need, with some pitches overlooking the sea and a great restaurant.

  • Lovely tranquil campsite

    The location was great as we could easily walk to the village or local beaches through the beautiful countryside. I would recommend this campsite to families for a peaceful and safe stay.
