At West Dorset Leisure Holidays we have 3 family-run Holiday Parks on or near the Jurassic Coast and a choice of 5 different types of accommodation for your glamping holidays in Dorset – Jurassic Escape Pods, Premier Camping Pods, Safari Tents, Classic Camping Pods and Bell Tents!
Glamping is perfect for couples, young families and groups of friends who wish to enjoy all the benefits of camping holidays but without worrying about all the equipment you need to pack, the typically unreliable British weather and the hassle of putting up a tent. The glamping accommodation have a few welcome home comforts, such as heaters, plug sockets and lights and select Jurassic Escape Pods, Safari Tents and Premier Camping Pods are dog friendly (max of 1 dog). The parks are in spectacular locations close to coast and countryside and surrounded by great attractions, beaches, places to eat and events.
The Holiday Parks are now open and we are taking all bookings, including camping. The only facilities that remain closed are the Leisure Club and Soft Play at Highlands End Holiday Park. Any questions, please read our pre-arrival information.

The wildlife is stunning, we were visited by the ducks on a regular basis which was lovely. Our visit was very enjoyable and we will definitely be back in the future!

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.

This is by far the best Holiday Park I have been to. The views are breath taking with easy access to the beach and nice coastal walks to West Bay. If you're looking for a relaxing holiday in a stunning location, then this is the place to come.

We have been coming here now every year for about 10 years. Its our favourite place and the Park has everything we need.

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.

Quiet site in a beautiful setting with exceptionally clean toilets and showers

Close to beach, a nice local pub, dog friendly and a very relaxed atmosphere.

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.

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.
Shirley Thompson - Tripadvisor
The location is amazing, right on the beach and all the facilities are good. It's a hidden gem this one, one of the best parks in the country
Mark Tee - Tripadvisor
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.
