On site bar and restaurant

The Village Inn is located within the grounds of Ulwell Holiday Park. It is open to all guests staying at our caravan and camping park as well as local residents. The large and spacious bar and restaurant is light, bright and modern, creating the perfect place to relax and socialise with friends.

The interior reflects the parks close proximity to the Dorset coast and is decorated in a nautical style. Some of the decorations have even been salvaged from a shipwreck in Swanage Bay!

There are a number of different areas to sit – depending on the needs of your group. We have a selection of private booths in the family area as well as tables that can be arranged for larger groups. The bar area is open plan with casual dining and plenty of room for socialising as you enjoy a drink. There’s even a log burner and cosy seating area, which is perfect for a winter’s day.

What our guests say

  • A lovely quiet site

    Andy Blackwell

    A lovely quiet site, nice warm amenities with good sized shower cubicles, shop not open yet as it’s too early but the local pub is ideal. Staff were very friendly and helpful. If you’re reasonably fit you can walk into Swanage but the bus service is great so why would you want to. Overall a very nice break, we will be back.

  • Super swimming pool

    Joseph Molford

A lovely comfy pub on site for drinks and a bowl of chips, a small shop, swimming pool, large play are with park, and the bus stops right outside.. what more could you want

  • Easter break


    We have just returned after a brilliant Easter break. Couldn’t fault anything at all and we didn’t want to leave. We didn’t visit the pub but the shop is stocked with local produce and essentials. The facilities are great and the location convenient. Our van was spotless and had everything we needed. We will definitely be back
