A pleasant seating area for if you need to take a break from your holiday home and want to sit back on a leather sofa and enjoy a cappuccino and light snack. The renovated Cowshed is perfect for peace and quiet, with a wide screen TV showing the news and big, floor to ceiling windows opening up the views over Eype Downs and the heritage coastline.
Highlands End Shop
Local is best, we try and support our neighbouring businesses as much as possible, supplying their fresh produce in our shop. We have a wide selection of those day to day necessities with leading newspapers, magazines, that scrumptious chocolate bar and other mini indulgences. There is a section for touring and camping with those little accessories you might have accidently left at home and we offer a gas cylinder exchange service. We will soon be opening up a dog section to accompany our woof guide and to supply dog treats. We can post your mail, provide WIFI and can charge your mobile phone at a small fee. Our friendly shop staff will be happy to advise you and assist in your daily grocery needs.
Connected to the shop and main reception, the tourist information offers many different leaflets of places to visit and things to do in the local area. Advertising local events and contact numbers for making reservations. There are large maps with pin pointed destinations and a TV that shows videos of attractions worth a visit. If you need more information or need to ask a question the reception and shop staff will always be more than happy to give advice.
Children Play Areas
There are two different children’s play areas, one in the restaurant garden area and the second next to the camping and touring field. Both have swings, slides and climbing apparatus. They’re great for kids to let off steam whilst the parents can sit on the benches and take in the spectacular coastal and countryside surroundings. The play areas are all layered with soft play bark and are checked daily by maintenance staff. Please ensure your child is always supervised by an adult.
Nestled in the countryside grounds of Highlands End is the quaint duck pond, a man made pond beautiful to sit around and watch the wildlife unfold. You can purchase duck food from the Highlands End shop, great for the children to meet the ducks and enjoy the West Dorset countryside. The pond is set alongside a well maintained footpath that joins Highlands End Holiday Park to West Bay.
