Jurassic Coast, Eype (Highland’s End Holiday Park)

Travel back through time with spectacular coastal views

Enjoy exploring one of the most spectacular sections of the Jurassic Coast, UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Tramper offers an easy way to explore the ups and downs along a wide selection of routes.

The Tramper is hired from the award winning, Highlands End Holiday Park, which itself provides a great option for those wanting to stay longer to enjoy the full experience of West Dorset. With two other Tramper hire locations within 10 miles and others within easy reach it would be easy to fill a week of different visits.

Tramper Routes

There is an extensive network of Tramper routes on offer from Highland’s End. The most popular option – and easiest for first time users – are the routes leading gently down to West Bay, the popular coastal village. Made famous as the setting of programmes such as Harbour Lights and Broadchurch, the combination of a bustling harbour, coastal scenery and a wide range of places to eat, provides plenty to enjoy on arrival (although remember that the Tramper is not designed for inside use so must always be left out of enclosed buildings/ spaces).

The hamlet of Eype is another destination with the Tramper route continuing down the lane towards the coast. From here you can either return the way that you came or continue around the loop up the steep hill (the Tramper taking the strain!) for spectacular views of the coast before continuing back to the holiday park or onwards to West Bay.

Those short of time can go directly from the holiday park to the cliff top view point in just 10 minutes from the hire point.
The holiday park’s webpage includes a copy of the map you will be handed when hiring the Tramper which shows the different routes (and important information on enjoying them safely).

Hiring the Tramper

Advance booking is recommended to avoid disappointment – particularly during school holidays and weekends in the spring and summer.
