Double Gold Awards for Highlands End!

On the 1st February, businesses from across the county gathered at Weymouth Pavillion to celebrate the annual Dorset Tourism Awards. It’s always a fantastic evening, full of glitz and glamour, and this year’s event proved no exception. The 2023/24 ceremony was the biggest in the awards’ 11 year history, with over 260 guests from a range of businesses and sponsors.

As always, all the businesses in attendance had been through a rigorous application and independent judging process, and have been recognised as industry-leading in their respective fields. The categories covered an array of tourism-related businesses including accommodation, hospitality and experiences.

After taking a break last year, we decided to enter the awards again this year, and entered Highlands End into two categories – Holiday Park Of The Year and the Ethical, Responsible and Sustainable Tourism Award.

West Dorset Leisure Holidays

Holiday Park Of The Year

We were thrilled to win the Holiday Park Of The Year award again. Despite having won this on numerous occasions before at both Dorset and South West level, nothing is ever taken for granted, and we were over the moon to take home the Gold. There are so many incredible Holiday Parks in Dorset and we are grateful to be up there at the top.

This award was kindly sponsored by Tozers.

West Dorset Leisure Holidays

Ethical, Responsible and Sustainable Tourism Award

This was our first time entering this category, and we weren’t alone in that – during the visit from the judge, we were told that every year sees a significant increase in the number of applicants in this category. This shows that the businesses of Dorset have sustainability at the forefront of their minds and we couldn’t be more proud to have won Gold for such an important award.

We care about our coast and countryside, and our guests do too. You can read more about our sustainable practices on this page.

This award was kindly sponsored by Saffery.

After our celebrations were over, it’s straight back to it for our team. Highlands End is open all year round for touring caravans, motorhomes and campervans, as well as our Lodges, Apartments and Bungalows. After our exciting new Glamping Pod development is complete, we hope to be able to offer Glamping all year round too.

Next week is set to be a busy one, with members of the team attending the BH&HPA Conference in London, and others visiting the West Country Tourism Conference and The Source Trade Show, both in Exeter.

Easy booking Lovely location Very clean neat and tidy even the toilet shower blocks are spotless Lovey food and service in Martins bar Stunning views on most pitches We really liked the warm outside doggy shower that was a real surprise for our pooch! A well run site that looks after its customers the staff and management should be proud keep up the good work!!! The only negative was the charging for WiFi is a little mean, Highlands should review this please.

Absolutely the best campsite we have visited so far. The location is perfect with great views of the sea. Just a short walk into West Bay and a bit longer walk into Bridport. The showers were lovely and warm and didn't switch off after a few minutes...you turn it off when you're done. Radio playing in the background was a nice touch. There's all the facilities you'd expect on a great campsite, laundry, dishwashing area, chemical disposal etc. there's also a well stocked little shop. There's a pool and a sauna and steam room, which we used once. There's a bar serving food, which we didn't use but will give it a go next time we visit.

Liked: Easy to walk from campsite with the dog to different places and the location of the site allows all year camping. Disliked: Nothing other than the muddy conditions on some of the walks but what do you expect after one of the wettest winters in years.

What an amazing location. Had a week here with my caravan. Very windy weather but my pitch for the caravan was on the (slightly) more sheltered side of the site. Great views down to West Bay. Lots of walks to do. Very large field for dogs. Staff very nice and good little shop on site. Will certainly be going back,
