A holiday park on the Jurassic Coast has received a coveted award recognising it as 'one of the best in the world' thanks to top reviews. 

Freshwater Beach Holiday Park in Burton Bradstock has announced that it has won Tripadvisor’s Travellers’ Choice Award again for this year after previously winning it in 2023. 

The achievement honours businesses that consistently earn great reviews, placing them among the top 10% of listings around the world on the global online travel guidance platform Tripadvisor.

Sandy Steele-Perkins, marketing manager for Freshwater Beach Holiday Park, said: "We are honoured to be included among travellers’ favourites this year.

“We would like to thank all the team members for making family memories and the guests that have stayed with us and who felt compelled to leave us a positive review on the platform.”

The park's facilities include a campsite, covering over 20 acres of level grassland and hard standing pitch, and a Jurassic Fun Centre which comprises indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a restaurant and sports bar, ten pin bowling and a gym. 

It has faced challenges in the past year after Storm Ciarán destroyed some of the static caravans and flooded the grounds.

Residents were evacuated and the park was forced to end its season early, having been due to close for the winter on Wednesday, November 15.

Despite this, the park said it was "determined to come back stronger" and since its reopening in March 2024 it has delivered positive experiences to its customers - with one Tripadvisor review describing it as “the best campsite for families.”

Another review read: "There is something for everyone at Freshwater. We were a family group of three generations and we all had a great time.

"The location is fantastic with the beach adjacent and enjoyable walks nearby and the staff and facilities were amazing."

John Boris, chief growth officer at Tripadvisor, said: “Congratulations to Freshwater Beach Holiday Park on its recognition in Tripadvisor's Travellers’ Choice Awards for 2024.

 “You have made such a memorable impact on your visitors that many of
them took the time to go online and leave a great review about their experience.

“We hope this recognition continues to drive business to you in 2024 and beyond.”
