Sandford Holiday Park: 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 within easy reach… From its peaceful Holton Heath woodland setting, it's just a short journey to the wide sands of Studland and Sandbanks, as well as lively resorts such as Bournemouth and Poole – all of which are within a half-hour drive.

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…

    Pitches not hard standing. Not enough staff. Too many low hanging trees, really not a suitable site for motorhomes. Bad weather caused flooding and trees down on vehicles, tents and awnings awash, no staff helping out anywhere

    Toilets in touring weren’t clean but mainly due to users not being thoughtful rather than lack of cleaning. Touring pitches noisy until gone 1-2 in morning

    Had to pay for all the activities, toilets had no toilet roll, shop didn't have a lot of stock, all the outdoor snack places were closed. Not to do with the park, but parents has no respect for others and let their children run around like hooligans.

Good site with great activity choice. Lovely location for South coast10/30/2021

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousMobile phone iconConfirmed

  • Paddock powered grass travel trailer site

  • Liked: 

    Visited the site off-peak and it was very pleasant. Lots of activities (although did have to pre-book) which were well run by a good team. High ropes and sea scooters great fun. Good food in restaurant and chippy but slow service due to lack of staff.

    Disliked: 

    Wifi was a huge problem. Anywhere away from the clubhouse was poor/non-existent reception. Also, arrival at 6pm on Saturday evening meant security let us in. They had no idea where to send us and we ended up on the wrong, less favourable pitch. Showers freezing cold, so relied on shared pool facilities (not ideal).

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, and 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.
