Eype Beach Local Area

Eype Beach Holiday Park has a fantastic location on Dorset’s Jurassic Coast. The park is situated on the side of the clifftop leading up to Thorncombe Beacon, and is right next to the iconic hut used as a key location in the first season of ITV’s popular drama Broadchurch. You’ll also be walking distance from the hidden gem that is Eype Beach itself with its rock pools and fossil hunting; West Bay and its active fishing harbour, chip kiosks and the historic town of Bridport with its twice-weekly market, rope and net making heritage and art/antiques scene.

The iconic Colmer’s Hill is another place close to the park, which is well worth a visit. This conical shaped hill, topped with trees, is particularly beautiful in spring when it is awash with bluebells and there are far-reaching views over Bridport and the Marshwood Vale countryside.
