DORSET PARK DRAWS THE CROWDS

790a63ad-cbd9-4afd-9388-9b4b73bc1954
A new indoor leisure complex is boosting the number of holiday caravanners using Freshwater Beach Holiday Park in Burdon Bradstock, Dorset.

Opened a year ago, the two-storey Jurassic Fun Centre is unusual in featuring a living roof. Covered with vegetation, the roof was required for environmental reasons because Freshwater Beach lies right in the middle of the Jurassic Coast, England’s only natural World Heritage Site.

Facilities in the Fun Centre include a six-lane, ten-pin bowling alley, fun pools, slides and Aqua Jets, 20m x 10m swimming pool, steam room, sauna, hot tub, gym, bar restaurant and takeaway. There is also a hair and beauty salon plus roof terrace. Planning and development took no less than ten years to complete.

Holiday caravan plots on the park, which is open from mid-March to mid- November, total 260, of which 60 are given over to a hire fleet. Among the caravans available for sale as we went to press was a 2005 35x12 Willerby Manor priced at £22,000 and a new 28x12 Willerby Rio Gold costing £27,000.  Annual plot fee is c.£2,900 and the licensing period, 10 years.
