Just came back from a first time visit to this campsite. Cant wait to go back. Lovely views from the pitch, plenty of room between the the tents, clean and warm toilet block and nice food in club house. Yes it was windy most of the time but what do you expect from camping 200 feet up on a cliff!. Take plenty of strong pegs and pin down your guy ropes well.

The site is one of our favourites and we have been going there now for 6 or 7 years. It is a very clean and well kept site. The toilet and shower blocks are very clean and roomy. It can be very windy and suggest to anyone who wants to put up an awning that they go to the lower pitches overlooking West Bay. The views are better from the top but in very windy weather you can loose your awning. The restaurant has great food and a good atmosphere. There are some wonderful places to visit. Beer Pecorama is great for the kids.

There's nothing much I can fault this site for. Beautiful surroundings with glorious views, well laid out spacious manicured pitches, good toilet and washing facilities, and a grand children's play area (if you need one) make Highland's End a fine place to stay.

I can't comment on the shop, the pool or the bar because I didn't visit any of them, but they're there.

The beach at Eype Mouth is a 10 minute walk away, and the fishing from the shore can be great! One evening, in just a couple of hours, I caught over 30 mackerel with a string of feathers. Strangely, my mate Dave caught nothing at all just a few yards from me - probably because he spent most of his time asleep in the evening sunshine!

But beware as has already been mentioned, please do not underestimate the potential for extremely high winds. They can be devastating. On our fourth morning there we awoke to gale force winds, and driving rain. It was very difficult to stand still in the teeth of the relentless blast, and needless to say the tents took a real battering.

Many on the site were damaged, including ours and that of our friends, and one or two had been abandoned during the night. We spent several hours on 'tent patrol' that morning constantly knocking back in loose pegs and guy ropes, and hanging on to rapidly warping poles. Eventually, soaked to the skin and frozen, we gave up, hurled everything into the back of our vehicles and fled for sunny Lancashire despite having three more nights paid for. You don't get refunds.

We stopped for breakfast down the road in Bridport and were surprised (and slightly disgruntled) at how gentle the drizzly breeze was in the valley. It's that cliff top location, beautiful but treacherous!

Just visited highlands end after recommendation. It was our 1st first time touring again after a 30 year break, can't understand why we left it so long! - what a laugh we had

Fantastic park, lovely views, great walks with the dogs, saw sheep giving birth to the lambs.

Friendly staff, grass area's kept very neat and tidy, no litter around nice shop, great bar with very good food, would recommend. Shower block clean and tidy, though the showers need to run longer before you have to press the button again, Play area very good, swimming pool expensive 7.10 for 2 adults and a child, and the water was very cold - also I didn't like the fact that one member of the leisure staff was cleaning the mats out of the changing pool side with very strong smelling chemicals (I know they need to be cleaned but you could do it when no one is around)

Very handy for morrisons and the wine factory,

Eype beach nice to walk along,

Would not recommend the New Inn Eype

Would definitely go again

(in 5 nights we only experienced the wind for half of a night)

Very helpful on arrival. Good level clean and tidy pitch. We had electric hook up.

Great facilities and a friendly family atmosphere. Being right on the cliff top there was nearly daily drama with coast guard helicopter rescue to be seen. Lots of paragliders too.

If you pitch here you need plenty of decent pegs. The wind is indescribable and many tents were abandoned in pieces and their owners went home without them! Having said that the views are astounding the beach although shale is fantastic and the water warm and clear. You are left to your own devices for your stay and ample supplies are available at the local shop.

We will be returning! Oh. There are lots of rabbits.

Just got back from Highlands End - what a lovely site! We used the pool and gym and they were both great. Yes there is an extra charge but it is well worth the money.

The views are beautiful but take some BIG wooden blocks as some of the pitches with the great views slope badly.

The loos and showers were superb - always spotlessly clean. The bar was pleasant and the food was pretty good too (we only ate there once). The maintenance staff also did a great job with the grounds.

Not too impressed with Bridport but did have a nice walk down to West Bay with the dog. And yes the fish and chips from the kiosk is wonderful!

Really loved the site but not enough in the area to make us go back again.
