Welcome to the Shorefield Holidays media area. We are happy to provide journalists and bloggers with press releases, quotes, familiarisation and more to help publicise our holiday parks.

Our background: Spanning three generations, here at Shorefield Holidays we are extremely proud to be a family-run enterprise on the UK's South Coast. With eight holiday parks located across Hampshire and Dorset, each with their own USPs and appealing to varying markets and demographics, we are a growing, forward-thinking business that is committed to ethical and sustainable business practices.

The Shorefield Holidays story began on 4th July 1958 by the late Dr Robert Pollock, when he was unable to find a touring pitch for the family’s annual holiday, he purchased a small caravan park next to a worked-out gravel pit at Milford on Sea and so we were born.

Whether you are looking for a family holiday, romantic short break, luxury retreat or even a spa break, we have all the essential elements to create the perfect holiday in one of the UK’s most popular holiday destinations. We are proud to continually invest in our parks with a focus on exploring and adopting innovative practices and sustainability across the company.

Press and media enquiries: We have a dedicated PR Agency who look after all our coverage and press visits. For media and PR enquiries or journalist opportunities, please contact them on shorefield@sunnysideupcomms.co.uk

Shorefield Holidays are one of the largest holiday companies based on the south coast of England – a gateway to the tourist attractions that the region offers, the New Forest and the Jurassic coastline of Dorset. As well as providing short breaks and traditional holidays in this stunning corner of the south coast, a core of the family-run business is selling quality holiday homes.

Each of our parks has its own individual character and different facilities and are an easy drive from either the beach or the unique New Forest National Park with its ancient, wild landscape and famous roaming ponies.
