Highlands End Holiday Park general manager James Cox said: ‘At the end of October the cast and crew of Broadchurch were filming the second series on Eype Beach next to the park.

‘While the holidaymakers at Highlands End were asked not to take pictures of any plot spoilers, they had a bird’s-eye view of the filming from the decking of their caravan holiday homes.’

He added: ‘We have recently expanded our luxury holiday lodge accommodation as the existing lodges, bungalows, holiday homes and apartments are all booking well on the back of Broadchurch fever.’

There has been a rise too, said Mr Cox, in the sale of new and pre-owned caravan holiday homes at the family-run business.

With a commanding cliff-top position and breathtaking sea views, Highlands End provides luxury holiday caravans to buy and rent, plus pitches for touring caravans, motorhomes and tents.

Its highly-praised facilities include a leisure club which incorporates a pool and fully-equipped gym, plus a quality restaurant, bar and cafe, and a shop specialising in fresh Dorset produce.

The park has received a number of additional awards for its care for the natural world, including the David Bellamy Conservation Award at its top gold level.
