The park, flanked by meadows and farmland

General

  • Peaceful family park on the edge of Owermoigne and Moreton villages
  • Popular wildlife pond with geese and ducks
  • Immaculate amenities, licensed shop and a launderette

‘See, that’s how good little ducklings do it,’ you can say hopefully to the kids as they watch the baby birds obediently waddle after mum around the park: Sandyholme Holiday Park’s (fenced) wildlife pond with its flocks of geese and ducks is a big favourite with ducklings of all ages. As is the peaceful location and the chilled atmosphere, as you let any thoughts of work roll away from you like water off a duck’s back…

The park is tucked in a secluded location on the edge of the villages of Owermoigne and Moreton, surrounded by trees and with excellent amenities: clean showers and toilets, a launderette, a licensed shop and wifi access across the whole park for those who simply must stay on the grid.

The ducklings will be quacking happily over the playground and games room, while the knowledgeable staff and the tourist information at the park will help out with info on walks and things to do nearby for the whole family – museums, events, seaside towns and local family-friendly inns among many others.

Guests at Sandyholme can also use the facilities at fellow West Dorset Leisure Holidays site Highlands End Holiday Park 18 miles west for a small charge: take your pick from an indoor pool, sauna/steam room or pitch and putt, before getting your beaks twitching at the meals in the family bar.

    We travelled as three couples so it was great that you could choose where you wanted to pitch your tent and fence yourself off to spend quality time with friends. We were made to feel welcome and there and the facilities were excellent.

    Lovely little campsite off the main stretch, easy access to main beaches and local area, you could put your tent anywhere on the main field, shame there was no electric

    Disliked: 

    At the weekend there were large groups of noisy uni groups, swearing and cursing late into the night, not good with young children, the shop was very limited and was missing a real opportunity with local produce, toilets and showers only cleaned once a day, in current climate would have expected far more cleaning

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Go a-roamin’ to Dorchester’s Roman Amphitheatre or the Roman townhouse remains, get your toes wet or go fishing at seaside resorts Charmouth, Lyme Regis and West Bay, get energetic with easily accessible golfing, fishing, scuba diving and sailing... take in the views of Golden Cap and the island of Portland from Chesil Bank and West Bay, or just pack a picnic and explore Dorset’s World Heritage Jurassic Coast… there are walks and trails all around the countryside surrounding Sandyholme to find the perfect chill out spot.

Savvy shoppers should make a stroll around Bridport a top tick on the shopping list: this market town has some of the widest streets in England and has had an outdoor Saturday market since permish was granted by Liz the First way back in the 16th-century. Beaminster, Dorchester and Sherborne are good additional options for maxing out the credit cards with handcrafted goodies and shops to suit all tastes and budgets.

The seaside town of Weymouth is just one of many to spend a day or afternoon in, following in the watery steps of George III who came here 14 times in the hope that a Weymouth dip would cure his bouts of insanity (alas, it didn’t, but it did put Weymouth on the map as a top tourist destination: go see).
