Adventure play area

General

  • Family park close to Poole, Studland and Sandbanks
  • Indoor and outdoor pools, amusement arcade, play areas and kids' clubs
  • Bowling, crazy golf, ice cream parlour, restaurant and clubhouse

Sandford Holiday Park is an apt name for this park, which has acres of Britain’s best beaches on its doorstep… From its peaceful woodland setting, guests have easy access to the wide sands of Studland and Sandbanks, as well as lively resorts such as Bournemouth and Poole.

Boredom's not an option here, where the activities include a summer outdoor and indoor pool complex; a dedicated musical play pool for toddlers; courts for tennis and many other sports; bikes and pedal go-karts for hire, and nature trails crisscrossing the site.

Still standing after all that energetic stuff? Then go swing’n’rolling at the bowling, or take the kids around the jungle-themed crazy golf and reward the winner with an extra scoop at the site’s ice cream parlour.

The park also has 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 should also enjoy the indoor soft play zone and two outdoor play areas, with 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. Then top it all off with a trip to the Limelite Club for family entertainment, cabaret and competitions from the sparkly Troupers: you should sleep well after that lot…

    The staff are really nice and friendly. Lovely swimming pool and the site itself is very nice. Food in the restaurant is very reasonable and good. The entertainment is fantastic if you get there early enough to get a seat.

    Disliked: 

    Not enough staff on the bars and it we found it hard to get a seat for the entertainment as it was busy.

I couldn’t make it to the site to check in ...27/09/2019

    I couldn’t make it to the site to check in on time as I was at work. A very friendly and polite lady called me up to check me in over the phone and gave me clear instructions on how to get my pack and find my pitch in the dark.
    When I arrived at the venue I was greeted by a very friendly and helpful security man who made sure I knew what I was doing and where I was going.
    The pitch was a good size and sheltered and close to the wash block.
    The toilet and shower facilities were immaculate.
    The price was very reasonable considering all the entertainment activities that came with it (although I didn’t use any of them).
    I will be staying again it’s just a shame they close for the season soon

    Disliked: 

    Check out at 10 am and it not open all year

    The amount of entertainment for the kids was fab, and all the entertainment staff were full of energy with smiles on their faces.

    Disliked: 

    Benches in showers are too close so clothes get wet!
    Pitches have this nasty sandy mud which goes everywhere.
    Noise from other campers until 4am!

Local attractions

It’s a short hop in the car to begin discovering the area’s spectacular surrounds, 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 has thrills for kids 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 saltwater 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.
