We welcome you to the beautiful Jurassic coastline of Dorset – the setting for Golden Acre Holiday lodges 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 coastal lodge 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.
