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 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 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.
The grass pitches fit tents up to 7.5 metres (24.6 feet). If you require a larger pitch, we have pitches up to 8 metres at nearby Highlands End Holiday Park. Check in is from 2pm and check out by 11am. Bookings are for a minimum of 2 nights in low and mid season and 3 nights in high season and bank holidays (shorter stays may be available close to the arrival date – call 01308 426947 to enquire). Prices are based upon 2 persons, 1 car and 1 unit / tent – extra adults, children and cars are chargeable. Arrivals can be on any day of the week. A deposit of £40 per booking per week is required at the time of booking. The remaining balance is due 70 days before the arrival date. If it is less than 70 days until arrival, or the value of the booking is less than £100, the full amount is required upfront at the time of booking. Please note that bonfires and fire pits are not permitted anywhere on the park and BBQs must be raised off the grass using bricks provided.

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.

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.

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.

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.
