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…

  • Liked: 

    The scenery and friendly neighbours.

    Disliked: 

    Even before arriving I didn't want to go. Out of 20 times ringing they answer once, which is difficult to understand because once I visited reception there were 4 people just stood chatting..
    Anyway back to the phone calls.. you cannot book online for any activities such as swimming because we booked through a third party (pitch up) and to call 1 week in advance to book places.
    I called 2 weeks in advance to be told all spaces for swimming and activities had been taken and I should of done it quicker.
    So we were unable to use any facilities.
    Some of the staff really didn't want to be there and it showed.
    Also the electric cut out on a few occasions with no apology or explanation.
    Very disappointed and wouldn't recommend if you want to use swimming pool etc..

    Disliked: 

    Driving into the park was under water and the drains were blocked, getting out of the caravan was under water, built on clay no drainage. We asked to move they said it was fully booked even though pitches had been empty the whole time we were there.
    Computers were down and unable to book activities for the grandchildren, there was no social distances or control and long queues for evening entertainment and restaurant so didn’t bother with that.
    Electric went down and we could not get through to reception, and management did not come round to the caravan until the next day and told us that he did not know when we would get electric back on so we decided to leave early and come home.
    Wouldn’t recommend as there was too many people in the campsite no electric everything was fully booked, even saw people getting changed outside of the pool in the rain as they could not use changing rooms.
    In the football arena there was at least 30 to 40 playing an organised game with one member of staff (too many).
    Grandchildren were very disappointed and could not even build a bear.
    So disappointed and dissatisfied.
    We will not be coming back to this place.!

    The site it's self looked nice, the food in the restaurant was reasonably priced and tasty.

    Disliked: 

    Unfortunately most entertainment is bookable and payable with activity around 6 pound ahead with the same price for child and adult. Many of the staff were unable to provide the correct advice on the booking system and 90% of the activity we managed to book were cancelled and they refunded in cash which you couldn't spend on site. The ground on the campsite was very ROCKY so difficult to place pegs in. We were also only able to be seated in the restaurant on one occasion and the fish and chips on site got my order wrong twice after a 45 minute wait outside in the rain.

Directions

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.
