About Golden Acre Holiday Park

We welcome you to the beautiful Jurassic coastline of Dorset – the setting for Golden Acre Holiday Bungalows where your pets are welcome to join you for a tail wagging holiday catering specifically for you and your pets.

Golden Acre is a small, private bungalow park and is probably the most ‘dog friendly’ you will ever find. The park is situated on the slope of a valley leading to Eype beach (pronounced as in ‘peep’) a short stroll away. Dogs are allowed on our beach ‘all year round’.

The beach which is Marine Conservation Society recommended, is excellent for rambling with your dog, fossil hunting, geology and fishing. For the anglers, deep sea and mackerel-boats sail from nearby West Bay, Lyme Regis and Weymouth but fishing straight from the coast can also provide an excellent catch. Take a look at our local information page where we have detailed places to visit around the area.

Take a walk through time that includes the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous Periods of Earths history. With breathtaking views come and visit the the Dorset and East Devon Coast World Heritage Site which is England’s first natural World Heritage Site – known as ‘The Jurassic Coast’. It covers 95 miles of truly stunning coastline from East Devon to Dorset, with rocks recording 185 million years of the Earth’s history. Its World Heritage status ranks it alongside a select group of globally important natural sites such as The Great Barrier Reef and the Grand Canyon!!

Eype itself is a pretty ‘olde’ English village believed to have been a smugglers haunt! An excellent pub, The New Inn, where dogs are welcome, and hotel with a ‘dog friendly’ ‘Smugglers’ bar open to non-residents offer a warm welcome to all visitors whilst extending the English tradition of good food and ale.

Our park and the beach welcome your dogs so please bring them with you to enjoy a fabulous break in one of the most beautiful areas of the country.

We have no bars, clubs or swimming pools – just peace and quiet, lovely countryside and stunning walks. See what our customers say about us in our customer testimonial section.

Wheelchair friendly accommodation available.

Booked a few days away over the half term and stayed at Golden Acres. The chalets are small but have every thing you need.

Nice and quiet when we were there and very dog friendly. You do need a torch if you are going out at night as it gets very dark (great to see the stars by) but the New Inn and Eype Country House Hotel are 100 yards in either direction.

However neither were particularly night time places with both closing by 10 pm. They probably open later in the summer when there are more people about. Overall we enjoyed our stay there

Last minute booking for a short break. Our bungalow was crisp and clean with newly refurbished kitchenette and bathroom. Not huge, but plenty of room for us and our two spaniels.

Very welcoming for the dogs with water bowl, dog treats and rug on the sofa. Very short walk to the dog friendly beach and lots of footpaths around the village.

The gounds on site were well kept and there were Dorset eggs to buy from reception.

We found Dorset very welcoming and enjoyed our holiday, would book again.


Crisp and Clean with all we Needed for a Short Break

It was our first trip to Golden Acres, and it won’t be our last. Was perfect for us and our little dog Daisy.

The accommodation was spotlessly clean, and the shower was brilliant. We had a 1 bedroom bungalow, compact but comfortable and had everything we needed.

We chose this park hoping it would be quiet for New Year’s Eve (our dog is terrified of fireworks). We didn’t hear one!

Also was very impressed with the welcome pack, as was Daisy! Will be booking again.


Very Enjoyable Stay
