‘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 flavours, as is the peaceful location, the chilled out atmosphere and the sounds of birds tweeting from the trees as you let all the stresses of everyday life roll away from you like water off a duck’s back…
Sandyholme is tucked away in a secluded location on the edge of the scenic West Dorset villages of Owemoigne and West Dorset, surrounded by leafy trees and with excellent amenities: clean as a whistle showers and loos, a launderette, a licensed shop on site and wifi access across the whole park for those who simply must stay on the grid.
Spacious flat pitches with electric hook-up are available for tents, tourers and motorhomes, and well-behaved dogs are welcome. The ducklings will be quacking happily over the children’s playground and games room, while the knowledgeable staff and tourist information at the park will help out with lashings of 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, tennis court or pitch and putt, before getting your beaks twitching at the meals in the family bar.
