Newlands Holiday Park in Charmouth is a great hidden gem for locals and visiting families alike. The facilities are open to non-residents with a modern indoor pool, heated outdoor pool with a slide for the summer months, and a spacious child-friendly restaurant.

There’s also a small amusement arcade (open evenings only) and soft play for the under 7s – ideal on a rainy day.

During busy periods (and COVID times) you'll need to book an hour’s allocated swimming session in advance, bookable online. There are separate male and female changing rooms*, baby change facilities, showers and limited seating around the pool.

*Changing rooms may not be available due to COVID-19 restrictions. Please enquire with venue to confirm.

The Tow Bar Restaurant serves drinks, snacks, breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days a week, with a menu of favourites for kids and adults. There's a pool table for older kids and a play kitchen to occupy younger ones in the bar and restaurant area.

After your swim and snacks, Newlands has an adventure playground to enjoy (behind the clubhouse building to the right hand side - towards the sea views!) and a smaller playground for little ones in front of the bar terrace.

*Worth noting* - Newlands usually closes for the winter at the beginning of November, and reopens early spring, so do check their website or ring in advance to check opening times and availability of facilities.
