Swanage Bay View Holiday Home Park was founded over 50 years ago and has been a highly popular destination for holidays and luxury static caravan ownership ever since. Enjoying an elevated location which provides stunning panoramic views of the world famous Jurassic Coast people travel from across the UK to take advantage of the beautiful sights and vibrant yet relaxed vibe afforded by the park’s unique hillside setting.
Just a 15 minute stroll from the beach, holidaymakers as well as staff can enjoy a relaxing walk to bustling seaside community just a short distance away. Swanage Pier was awarded the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence in 2016 and is just a 20 minute walk from the resort and also has plenty of parking if you would prefer to drive there. There are also a range of attractions in the surrounding local area, including the Isle of Purbeck which is a fifteen minute drive from the park and in turn has a number of its own attractions including the Swanage Railway Station and Corfe Castle.
Whilst many choose to enjoy the local area before retreating back to the elevation and tranquillity of the resort in the evenings, many other holidaymakers spend their entire holiday on the resort, taking in the beautiful views and making the most of the fantastic range of onsite facilities, amenities and entertainment. The luxury leisure facilities include a large indoor swimming pool, a fantastic state of the art gym, indoor bowls and a Costa Coffee. The View restaurant is a stunning place to enjoy a meal or snack with a design that – as the name suggests; capitalises on the stunning views of the Jurassic Coast; creating a rich environment that is the perfect location to enjoy any food or drink. The restaurant currently serves a range of dishes from the grill, including rump steaks, ribs, gammon steaks and a range of chicken and beef burgers. The restaurant also serves a famously good Sunday Lunch with all the trimmings.
