Baby holiday essentials you’ll find at our holiday parks
If you book a family holiday at our parks, you can request a high chair and a cot before arrival.
If you forget any food supplies, we have a SPAR convenience shop at Waterside and at both Chesil Vista and Tregoad we sell everyday essentials from reception. If what you need isn’t available at our resorts, our helpful team will happily advise you on local supermarkets and speciality stores in the area.
We also have launderettes onsite so you can keep your baby’s clothes and blankets clean throughout your stay.
Dining out with your baby
If you’re staying at Bowleaze Cove Holiday Park & Spa (formerly Waterside Holiday Park & Spa) and want to eat out, come along to Southside Bar & Grill, a family-friendly eatery which won a 2021 Travellers’ Choice Award.
If you choose our Chesil Beach Holiday Park, head to Chesil Breeze Bar & Grill and try some dishes showcasing some of the best local Dorset produce.
If you don’t fancy eating out, you can order your food to take away instead and enjoy it in your accommodation.
At Bowleaze Cove Holiday Park & Spa, we have a separate splash pool for young children that you can use to safely introduce your little one to the water.
Finally, you’ll have the convenience of designated parking spaces at our accommodation, so don’t worry about lugging all of your baby’s luggage across the parks when you arrive.
We asked Katie, our holiday experience manager, what our guests forget most often forgot when bringing their babies to our parks. She said:
“As the mother of twins the most forgotten thing……..is the grandparents to help! In all seriousness – the most forgotten baby item is the baby bath as the majority of accommodations feature a shower. Also, a cot line for the travel cot.”
