Palmers has been brewing authentic cask conditioned real ales in the West Dorset market town of Bridport since 1794. We have never felt the need to describe our ales as “craft” because they have never been anything else.

Each year thousands of visitors join us to look round the historic brewhouse, following the traditional process from the raw ingredients to a few halves of the final product. It is a process that in many ways has changed very little in the last two and a quarter centuries. Where it has been updated it has always been in the pursuit of quality. We live in a day and age where it is fashionable to claim to be passionate. If Palmers has a passion it is for quality, ensuring that every pint reaches our customers in perfect condition. Investing in our storage, transport, cellars and most importantly in training the people who handle our ales from the brewery to our licensees and their teams.

Cask Marque, the leading organisation that monitors beer quality in UK pubs, recently described us as “obsessive”, a compliment we are happy to take. Working with some of the top licensees in the industry we are proud that many of our 54 pubs have been recognised as some of the best in the country. Pubs that draw visitors to the region from far and wide, visitors who are in search of the best of local produce and a genuine English product, cask ale. Tours run on weekdays from Easter until October and can be booked through Palmers Wine Store, 01308 427500.

What our guests say

  • Very peaceful Park

    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!

  • 5 out of 5 isn't enough!

    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.

  • Best holiday ever!

    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.

  • A little bit of heaven!

    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.

  • Fantastic Park

    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.

  • Lovely tranquil campsite

    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.
