Holidays at West Bay

Come for a holiday at West Bay Holiday Park, the perfect spot for exploring the amazing Jurassic Coast.

Hunt for fossils or enjoy picnics on the beach, just 200 metres from the park. Bring your own bike along or hop aboard a cruise ship at the harbour to enjoy the region from a different angle.

After a morning of sightseeing, relax on the park with activities for all ages. Laze by the pool while the kids enjoy the flume, kayaking, and snorkelling. End each day in style with a meal in The Boathouse Bar & Restaurant followed by live family entertainment in The Riverside Club.

FarehamGBFamily (the eldest child is aged 5 - 14)
First impressions count and when we arrived at 4.10pm the caravan wasn’t ready.
We had to wait until 4.45pm and that was after we went to reception to enquire.
Opening the caravan door I was very surprised to see it was NOT as the photo’s I’d seen on line and expected.
It certainly wasn’t as nice!
Cleaning standards was poor.
Not well equipped.
So NO I won’t be returning

Hello Laura,

Our housekeeping staff are working very hard to ensure that our accommodations are cleaned thoroughly and in a timely manner, we are sorry that this took longer than expected on this occasion.

The pictures of the accommodations online are just a guide for our customers, we are sorry that this type of accommodation did not meet your expectations.

We hope that this does not stop you from visiting one of our 67 parks in the future
