Marlie Holiday Park: Indoor swimming pool

General

  • Rural setting close to the beaches of New Romney and Dymchurch
  • Indoor pool, kids' club, amusements centre and adventure playground
  • Family restaurant, entertainment venue and bar with Sky TV

Feeling a bit snarly? Nerves increasingly gnarly? You could do with a trip to Marlie.

Laidback Marlie Holiday Park is in a scenic rural setting close to the beaches of New Romney and Dymchurch, on the Kent coast. With a heated indoor swimming pool and plenty more stuff to keep the kids entertained, it could be just what the doctor ordered to restore your sense of calm…

Younger guests can flit between the sessions in the Loopy kids' club, the indoor pool, amusements centre and adventure playground, plus of course all the general running about in the fresh air (arm them with a few carrots and send them off to make friends with the resident rabbits).

If you want a break from the cooking, the park has a decent family restaurant; there’s also a bar with Sky TV, and an adjacent entertainment venue with evening entertainment.

You can relax in the knowledge that all the basics are covered too: smartly refurbished showers and toilets; a shop (as well a big supermarket just minutes up the road); a launderette; and free wifi in the clubhouse.

There, you’re feeling better already, aren’t you?

Lovely experience for my kids, and places to visit which were not far08/06/2021

  • Camping pod (2 adults and 2 children)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The pod was lovely, and spacious.... and the bathrooms were not far from the pod itself.

    Disliked: 

    The only thing would have helped or been good to have in the pod, is a little fridge.... but there is no space for it I suppose....
    The toilets didn't have any hand tissues which was annoying....

    Also we couldn't book swimming as they didn't have any life guard...

    We did not really get the full 30mins on our segways....

    Bunk bed is a bit small for older children especially the lower part, it always hit her head, she can’t even sit up on the bed, but overall it’s a beautiful pod.

Pods fab, staff friendly. Let down by outdated site/poor management29/10/2020

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousMobile phone iconConfirmed

  • Camping pod (2 adults and 2 children)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The camping pod was great and well heated which made such a difference. Nice touch having a large mirror and some storage shelves too.
    Toilets and shower block really close to the pods which was good.

    The cheese pizza in the restaurant was really tasty and staff were friendly.

    Disliked: 

    For older children there really is very little to do here. I had put my hopes on the park and the arcade to amuse my Son. But the park was out due to heavy rain.
    The arcade smelt horrible and damp. It is really small and there are only a few things to play on. When we went to get change the machine wasn't working so we couldn't use the arcade anyway at that point!
    If the arcade was upgraded it would make such a huge difference.
    Also unable to book to swim as pool fully booked.

    We paid to paint some pottery one morning which was enjoyable in itself, but organisation in the event room was really poor. We were told to sit at a table and then proceeded to wait for 25 minutes to even be acknowledged by someone. When we were seen, the staff were pleasant but the wait was frustrating.
    Younger children were crafting when we came in, but supplies were all over the floor and it was just unorganised in general. Lots of people waiting to do activities but little direction or instruction given by staff.
    None of the staff were unfriendly. But if there was just a bit better management of the little things, it would be much more relaxing and enjoyable for guests. (I.e. not having to wait, being told what to expect, tidied surroundings.)

    On our last night we ordered food in the restaurant, the pizza was nice but there was very little choice on the menu.

    Lovely view from Pod. The toilet/shower facilities were clean. We didn’t use the restaurant or pool but they were open. Friendly staff on check in.

    Disliked: 

    The pod hadn’t been cleaned - the floor was dirty and there was underwear left from the previous stay under the bed. The heater didn’t work however this was quickly resolved so not a problem during our stay.

Directions

Local attractions

Buckets and spades are go, with a range of good beaches on the doorstep; try Littlestone and Dymchurch, or Camber Sands a little further away. You’ll spot the steam engines of the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway puffing past; don’t miss a trip on this historic miniature railway, one of the best ways to explore the area.

Other sporting pursuits on offer include excellent fishing at the Wylands Angling Centre, where there are 10 lakes to choose from; and a wide range of watersports, both on the nearby beaches and at a specially-designed lake just inland (sand yachting, wakeboarding, jetskiing and more).

Whatever your ages and stages, there’s no shortage of inspiration for a family outing. A 20-minute drive up the road is the fab Port Lympne Reserve, where you can bump along through herds of African wildlife in a safari truck and get up close to the gorillas in the Palace of the Apes; you’ll also see rhinos, elephants, lions, tigers and other ferocious beasts.

Alternatively, go for a day out in Dover, to explore the White Cliffs and historic Dover Castle; a sedate saunter around spectacular Leeds Castle, potentially offset with an adrenaline-boosting high ropes adventure at the neighbouring Go Ape centre; a tastebud-tickling trip to the Biddenden Vineyard and Cider Works; a walk down memory lane at Yesterday’s World, or a foray to the Hop Farm near Maidstone.

Must see
