Alpine Grove Touring Park is an idyllic, relaxing holiday destination situated close to the border of Devon and Dorset. The park is set in a vast parkland, making it one of the most secluded and relaxing holiday locations you could ever wish to find.
A large number of touring pitches are available to travellers with campervans, motorhomes, and tents, most of which enjoy electric hook ups. The park encourages travellers to pitch wherever they please, meaning that you can choose a suntrap or somewhere more secluded and out of the way, should you wish to do so. The site is filled with picnic benches, so those who enjoy lunch or dinner outdoors can enjoy eating comfortably with some great views of the surrounding area.
Alpine Grove is a brilliant park where the whole family, and even household pets, can come along and enjoy the surrounding area. There is a play area and many other attractions to keep the kids occupied, with cycling tracks and walkways are everywhere throughout the park and surrounding country side so they – and the dog! – can run off some energy and allow the adults some peaceful time during the evening.
There is an outdoor swimming pool that is free for holidaymakers to Alpine Grove to enjoy, and the nearby shop sells all of your swimming essentials, such as goggles and floating aids for youngsters who are not yet confident in the water. If you are looking to hone your fitness, selected times of the day are designated as ‘adult only’ so you can work on your cardio or get your shoulders and stomach even more defined.
If you are looking for a beautiful location with a wide range of activities on your doorstep, while also having access to extraordinary coastal areas and other great attractions, then Alpine Grove is the place for you and the whole family to escape to on your next holiday.
You'll never run dry of ideas for entertainment and adverture at Alpine Grove.

A beautiful site, clean and well maintained. A freindly family run site that made us feel at home. We did'nt want to leave (wished we had booked longer!) We will return when we visit somerset again. A welcome was extended to our pets and they even have a dog sitting service if you want to go somewhere where dog's are not welcome. Toilets and showers are new and very clean as is the swimming pool! This is a site i would and have recommended to my freinds, if you like peace and quiet go when the kids are at school, if you want to lose your kids without the worry of where they are go here! My 7 year old son made loads of freinds and had the time of his life.
