Access Statement For Gorselands Caravan Park
We are a small family run business with both private ownership and holiday letting caravans. We are situated close to the sea, on a hillside overlooking Chesil Beach.
We have a full colour brochure and a website and are contactable by telephone, fax and email.
Arrival & Car Parking Facilities
The tarmac entrance road leads to the main car park has space for 15 cars and is approx 50m in to the Park. From the car park there is an uphill walk to the paved walkway, leading down to the Reception, Shop & Launderette building. There is a handrail for support until you reach the level path. The telephone kiosk is situated on the far end on the building. This entire access route is well lit at night.

There is another on the grass to the left of the pathway down to the Reception. This is accessible across the sloping grass.
Caravans, Holiday Homes & Twin Units
Some caravans have car parking adjacent to the caravan others require the car to be parked in the nearest available parking area. Distance will vary.
Most caravans have 4 tread metal steps with a handrail leading into the caravan.
Due to the sloping nature of the park some access points are not so straight forward and your requirements should be fully discussed before booking. All caravans have television with subtitle facility.
