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 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 walk through time that includes the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous Periods of Earth’s history. With breathtaking views come and visit 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 smuggler’s haunt! An excellent pub, The New Inn, where dogs are welcome, and a 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.
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 reviews section.
