Graston Copse is a great place if you are looking for a quiet and friendly park to spend quality time with your family or friends. Located in the heart of the Bride Valley but just 1 mile from the Jurassic Coast, Graston Copse has spacious grass pitches with and without electric for tents.
Graston Copse is a small park with a Park Reception, riverside and woodland walk and an enclosed dog exercising meadow – dogs are welcome with all camping bookings (charges apply).
The pitches all have use of the toilet and shower block included with clean and well-maintained facilities including a laundry room (charges apply), washing up sinks, a freezer for ice blocks and free hairdryers.
The pitches at Graston Copse are set in 3 acres of landscaped fields and are surrounded by farmland, countryside and the River Bride. There is an additional meadow with non-electric pitches that is open at peak season. With very little light pollution, Graston is a superb location for stargazing. On clear nights from March to October, you can even see the milkyway with your own eyes! There is a great focus on nature at Graston Copse, so much so that the park has received the David Bellamy Gold Conservation Award. See if you can find our bug hotel in the woods and our bee hives near the river!
It is just a 15 minute walk alongside the river to reach the charming village of Burton Bradstock with its 2 village pubs, a post office / farm shop, a convenience store and more. A further 10 minutes walk and you will reach Hive Beach, one of our favourite beaches on the Jurassic Coast. Here you can see the spectacular golden cliffs, enjoy fresh seafood at the award-winning Hive Beach Cafe or a cocktail on the terrace at the Seaside Boarding House. The South West Coast Path runs through here and there are great walks along the coast towards Cogden Beach and West Bexington or in the other direction towards the fishing village of West Bay with its boat-filled harbour and great selection of places to eat and drink.
Venture east from the park and you will find great locations and landmarks such as Hardy’s Monument, Little Bredy Waterfall and the village of Abbotsbury with its family attractions, including the famous swannery. Close to the park, you will also find Modbury Farm Shop, a petrol station in the village, bus stops within walking distance and a choice of 4 supermarkets in nearby Bridport.
Please note we do not allocate pitches – pitches are chosen upon arrival

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

Possibly the friendliest park on the Dorset coast. Staff are exceptional, very helpful and keep the place spotless. The views are fantastic. Showers and toilets are very modern and extremely clean.

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

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.
