Certificate of achievement and a busy Whitsun
Highlands End Bar & Restaurant
This Whitsun week has been ticking over nicely at the holiday parks, the weather has been slightly damping but it hasn’t stopped the families and others coming to stay and enjoying the West Country surroundings. Highlands End Bar & Restaurant just missed out on its all-time record for the most meals served in a day; we were out by 7 meals!
The Caravan Show at Highlands End went very well and we met a lot of people, all of whom we hope will return and that we were able to answer all their questions about purchasing a caravan. The demonstration area is still open and if anyone that was unable to make the show but would still like to come and take a viewing please contacts Highlands End main reception 01308 426912.
We have recently been awarded the 2014 certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor for Golden Cap Holiday Park. Trip Advisor quoted that “This prestigious award recognises businesses that consistently earn top ratings from Trip Advisor travellers”. We will be displaying the certificate at Golden Cap as a showcase for all our customers to see.
West Dorset Leisure Holidays new catering trailer is now open for business at Golden Cap Holiday Park. Serving at weekends we thought this would be a great option for campers looking for a bacon bap and tea early in the mornings. It did very well last weekend and we hope it will continue to do so until the end of the summer season.
The Anchor Inn is now open at Seatown, just 100m from Golden Cap Holiday Park, after an extensive refurbishment. The Anchor Inn has proved to be very popular to our customers and we were often asked during its closed period when it would be reopening? But now ready and awaiting your custom I am sure you will have a nice surprise on returning and enjoy the locally sourced menu, the stunning views and of course a local palmers ale.
The second series of Broadchurch will begin filming in West Bay soon and David Tennant and Olivia Colman have confirmed they will be returning. Broadchurch recently won three awards at the Bafta’s and I am sure along with the other residents from Bridport and West Bay, it was very exciting to hear Chris Chibnall the Director of the series mention West Bay during his award speech.
Caravan Show this Weekend
West Dorset Leisure Holidays Showground
We are making some changes within our caravan sales department and are looking to appoint an additional caravan sales person. The new sales member will be supporting the existing team and will be contributing towards an improved service and customer support. If you think you might be interested in this position please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We have established a new caravan display area at Highlands End Holiday Park and we want this area to give potential purchasers an ideal opportunity to view a range of caravan holiday homes. We are very fortunate to also have local caravan dealers in Bridport called Surf Bay and Southern Counties Leisure, so between all these show areas we have a wide range of models for potential buyers to view.
This Weekend we will be hosting our annual Whitsun Holiday Home Show and the flags will be flying high on our demonstration caravan models: Willerby Sierra, Swift Soleil, Swift Loire and an ABI Hartfield.
If you are looking for a holiday home in Dorset why not come and visit us this weekend, the West Dorset Leisure Holidays team will be here ready to help you.
New Smart Cars and Lodges at WDLH
I have not been too good at writing this blog over the last few weeks due to the opening of the park and the many other impacts on our time – however, I know the team have been very good with Tweets and Facebook entries which even keep me up to date with events!!
We have welcomed our fourth lodge at Highlands End and following on with the locally themed names for the lodges the new lodge is to be called ‘Burton Lodge’, as you can see Burton Bradstock in the distance. The 3 bedroom lodge is a great for families and also welcomes dogs.
We have received some excellent reviews on Trip Advisor:
Just returned from highlands end , we stayed in one of their lodges . Excellent lodge with all mod cons furnishings from next , large open plan kitchen/lounge/dining room . Beautiful views over countryside and sea.
Room Tip: Go for the lodges all brand new/ Stayed April 2014, travelled with family
With our objective of continuing to improve customer service we have reviewed our staffing structure and will shortly be recruiting additional staff to help in some key areas of the business and to reduce some of the pressure points within the organisation. Over the next few months there will be number of changes and hopefully all customers and business colleagues will appreciate the benefits.
Our two new Smart cars are continuing to attract lots of interest and I think we may have accidently discovered a new business opportunity with owners of motor homes asking to hire the cars to pop to the local town.
With the early May Bank Holiday proving to be a fairly busy time we are now planning for the next key holiday period at the end of the month – hopefully the sun will shine.
Smart Cars for West Dorset Leisure Holidays
We have recently purchased two Smart Cars for our staff to use as a nippy little get around and as an eye catching alternative for advertising our Caravan Holiday Homes for sale.
Mercedes Benz included a write up about us in their company blog which includes pictures and a brief interview.
