Helpful Hints & Tips
To see what activities are on and to pre-book before your holiday, please visit haven.com/experience four weeks before your arrival date. You can also book activities at the Activity Booking Point on park during your stay, subject to availability. If you want to book activities for your arrival day, please make sure bookings are made for after your arrival time or they may be cancelled. You can book your arrival day activities on haven.com/experience 7 days before your arrival date.
Activities are only available to our Holiday guests, Private Let guests who have purchased a Play Pass and our owners. Please bring your Play Pass or Privilege Card with you. We reserve the right to refuse access if you cannot show a valid pass or card.
Please see haven.com/experience 7 days before arrival for your allocated check-in time. Please do not arrive before your allocated check-in time. If you arrive outside of your designated time, we may kindly ask for you to wait until a member of team becomes available to assist.
Arriving late: please let us know on haven.com/experience when you get your allocated arrival time. We will then know to expect you later.
The bright lights and excitement of our arcade awaits for all guests to enjoy. Our machines take cash so pick out all the loose change from behind the sofa before coming! Don’t worry if you don’t have spare pennies, we have machines to change money for you, so you’ll soon be playing.
Get your sizzle on in safety. Please keep barbecues away from holiday homes, verandas and the external gas bottles. They must also be elevated and please use a non-disposable barbecue. Be sure that they’re completely put out before you leave them.
Bars and restaurants
We have three venues for wining or dining: the Mash and Barrel restaurant, and the ShowBar entertainment venue which are both inside the main complex. There's also The Terrace at selected times of year for alfresco dining which you’ll find outside the Mash and Barrel. You can pre-book a restaurant table at haven.com/experience, four weeks before your holiday or by visiting the restaurant once on park. There will be no table bookings in entertainment venues and tables will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Our nearest beach is Weymouth, which is a 40-minute walk or a 15-minute drive from our park. Dogs are welcome all-year-round on Weymouth Beach, however between 2 April and November dogs are restricted to the Pavilion end of the beach.
The number 502 comes right into the park and takes you to Weymouth Town Centre and Lodmoor Country Park. If you need any information on local bus routes, please see the Reception team.
Parking is available next to caravans or nearby. Our grassy areas are important to us. Please avoid parking on them and use the dedicated space next to, or near your holiday accommodation. Please also be considerate of your neighbours too. We have Blue Badge spaces in the main complex for those who need them.
We have cash machines in the ShowBar and the FunWorks amusement arcade. Cashback is available in the Mini Market (minimum spend applies).
All good things come to an end – please check out by 10am and drop your key into one of our key drop boxes located on the way out by the security gate or outside the main doors at the entrance to the complex. Please return your hire goods to Reception and we will refund the deposit back onto the card that the payment was made from.
We’re fond of dogs on park and most breeds are welcome, just keep them on a lead at all times. Guide and service dogs are welcome inside our venues. We have a dog walking area, and there is a side gate for access to the Mash and Barrel terrace so your dog can join you while you relax. We have bins around the park for cleaning up after your pet.
We’re strict about speed on park. Please stick to 10mph when you’re driving around.
Electric vehicle (EV) charging points
Unfortunately, we do not provide this service. Asda or Sainsburys would be the closest places nearby with electric vehicle charging facilities.
If you have an emergency, please call 999 and then our Reception and Security teams. This way we can direct them straight to you and come to your aid while you wait. If it’s not an emergency but you’d still like help, please call our Reception on 01305 774414 or our Security team on 07714 836987 as we have trained first-aiders on the park. Out-of-hours, please call our Security team.

If you're on a Haven holiday break, Play Passes give you access to book activities, pools and entertainment venues, subject to availability. Play Passes are not included in Haven Hideaway breaks.
We know how important a postcard to Nan and Grandad is when you’re on holiday, so drop in any pre-stamped post to us in Reception, and we’ll make sure it gets off for you – or you can use the post box just outside Reception.
No luck finding the TV remote? You can operate it from the set itself. We may even have another one at Reception so it’s worth asking just in case.
Special requirements and accessibility
If you have any questions or have special requests please contact our Call Centre prior to booking, where we have specially trained advisors who can help with every aspect of your booking. They can discuss the suitability of the park. If you have any questions while on the park, please ask the Reception team.
Please book a session before coming to the indoor swimming pool. You can pre-book up to 14 sessions per holiday booking from 4 weeks before your arrival date on haven.com/experience. Alternatively, you can book sessions on park after you’ve arrived, subject to availability. After 6pm on a Friday and Saturday and after 6pm during school and bank holidays, a booking isn’t needed so you can just turn up at the pool. Our outdoor pool is also available during the warmer months of the year, weather permitting, and there’s no need to book Please check opening times with the Activity and Leisure team.
If you can’t have a takeaway on holiday, when can you? We have a Cook’s Fish and Chips and Papa John’s® on our park, just waiting for you to enjoy. Papa John’s® will also deliver directly to your accommodation if required. Please order your takeaway on haven.com/experience
Terrain of the park
The park gently slopes down to the lagoon and spreads up the valley side. Flat areas of the park are Wessex Bank, Wey Valley, parts of West Acres, parts of Meadows and Chickerell View. The hilly areas are Woodlands, Lagoon Close and Bay View.
Surf’s up dude! Stay safe and tide alert with up-to-date tidal at the beach access point behind the main complex. Or search for the ‘My Tide Times’ app to get live, local updates.
If you want to explore the area, find a cracking local restaurant, or discover a nearby hidden gem, our Reception team can offer tips, advice, and recommendations. We have loads of tourist leaflets at Reception too.
Own up, who forgot to pack the towels? It’s okay, we provide towels (1 hand and 1 bath towel per person) in our Lodge and Silver, Gold and Signature grade accommodation or you can hire some from Reception for a small charge and deposit.
You will need to arrange any upgrade prior to receiving your arrival time. Please contact the park and they will be happy to discuss upgrade options with you.
To maximise the opportunity for guests to access the swimming pools, activities, entertainment venue and restaurants included in their holiday package, all holidaymakers visiting our parks must be included on a valid holiday booking. Unfortunately, we don’t have the capacity on our parks to allow our guests to bring visitors to our parks.
Due to the remoteness of our holiday parks the WiFi signal can vary. We do have free guest WiFi available in our main complex. The My Haven app works on Wifi and 4G, however if you do not have any signal, you can always book your activities with our Activity and Leisure team at the Activity Booking Point.
