Sandford Holiday Park is an apt name for this park, which has acres of Britain’s best beaches on its doorstep. From its tranquil woodland setting, guests have easy access to the wide sands of Studland and Sandbanks, as well as lively resorts such as Bournemouth and Poole.
Activities galore mean that boredom is simply not an option. Wallowers can splish and splash in the outdoor (open May to mid-September) and indoor pool complex, while toddlers get wet, wet, wet in the dedicated musical play pool; there are courts for tennis and many other sports; bikes and pedal go-karts are for hire; and nature trails crisscross the site. Still standing after all that energetic stuff? Then go swing’n’rolling at the bowling, or take the little monkeys around the jungle-themed crazy golf and reward the winner with an extra scoop at the site’s ice cream parlour.
While we’re on the subject of your progeny, there are no less than three different kids’ clubs, banded by age to make sure top fun is had by all (even the harder-to-please teens should be mildly interested by the film-making and DJ workshops...plus the free wifi on site). Young’uns will also enjoy the indoor soft play zone and two outdoor play areas, which feature a pirate ship and a climbing wall as well as the usual playground paraphernalia.
Recharge your batteries at the fish and chip shop or the Arena restaurant, which serves Costa coffee as well as pizzas and lots of other family-friendly meals. Top it all off with a trip to the Limelite Club for family entertainment, cabaret and competitions from the sparkly Parkdean Troupers. You should sleep well after that lot!
It’s a short hop in the car to begin discovering the area’s savage beauty, from the wilds of the New Forest to the ancient cliffs, limestone arches and nature reserves of the Jurassic Coast (tick off another World Heritage Site on your 'must see' list).
Dorset is jammed with attractions to suit all interests. History buffs might fancy clambering around Northe Fort or scaling the ramparts at Corfe and Portland castles. The Adventure Wonderland family theme park offers thrills for children of all ages, plus a massive hedge maze to get lost in. Action men (and women) can go paintballing or drive a tank at the Bovington Tank Museum.
There’s loads of fun for fauna fans, too: check out the chimps at Monkey World, swan about at Abbotsbury Swannery, visit Weymouth Sea Life Park, explore the largest salt water lagoon in the country on the glass-bottomed Fleet Observer, or meet some farmyard friends at Farmer Palmer’s Farm Park. Drive a bit further and you can also make a day trip to Longleat Safari Park.
