We have many facilities at Highlands End including a Cafe, Tourist Informations, on-park shop for all your needs and play areas for the kids.
The Cowshed Cafe at Highlands End Holiday Park is the perfect place to sit back and enjoy the stunning views with a cappuccino and light snack. Floor to ceiling windows show the fantastic views over the West Dorset Countryside looking down the valley to Eype Beach. We currently have a fantastic display of Dorset photographs and gifts from local photographers Neil Barnes, James Loveridge and Stephen Banks. In the Cowshed as well as Coffees and soft drinks we are able to serve hot Paninis, Sandwiches, Rolls, Pasties, Croissants, Sausage Rolls, Dorset Tea and Milkshakes. Grab a Wifi code for 30 mins free Internet Access with a drink and be sure to pick up a Loyalty Card to get your 7th Coffee on us!
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. Don’t forget to take home a gift from your holiday with our West Dorset Leisure Holidays Calendar, Post Cards and Gift Cards. Our friendly shop staff will be happy to advise you and assist in your daily grocery needs.
Connected to the shop and main receptions at both Highlands End and Golden Cap Holiday Parks, the tourist information areas show many different places to visit, things to do and attractions for the kids in the local area. For certain events you are also able to book tickets with us. There are large maps with pin pointed destinations and a TV at Highlands End, showing an interactive DVD of the Jurassic Coast. If you need more information download the Visit Dorset app on your phone or tablet or ask a member of the team on Reception if you have any questions – they will always be more than happy to give advice and share their love of the local area.
Children Play Areas
There are two different children’s play areas at Highlands End, one in the Beer Garden of Martin’s Bar & Restaurant and the other near the Touring and Camping area of the park. 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.
