We’re so pleased to welcome you back to our parks and are looking forward to seeing what 2022 brings, especially as this Spring there’s heaps happening, like the Winter Music Weekender at the end of February and a whole host of things to do in the local area.
We’re so very lucky to have the beautiful scenery of The New Forest on our doorstep. So if you’re visiting this Spring, make sure you’re up to speed with upcoming events in the local area. Here’s a snapshot of just some of the activities below:
- New Forest Discovery Walk
- Lymington Market
- Beaulieu River Boat trip
- Wellness Walks - Sounds of the Sea
We are also offering up to 15% off accommodation on short breaks & holidays arriving throughout March across our parks (excluding hot tub accommodation) - so check out our special offers page and act fast to secure your first choice of spring holiday today.
In between seasons, we have been busy working on lots of refurbishments throughout our accommodation range and facilities in preparation of the opening of all parks. We also have one of the largest ranges of holiday homes for sale, with exciting new models arriving each week, for those who think 2022 may be the year to purchase their very own holiday home away from home. Plus our local community has always been tantamount to our business purpose and we’re looking forward to developing these relationships further.
Giving back: UK tourism impact, local employer, green credentials, Dr Pollock academy
As a leading local business and important local employer for the area, at Shorefield we’re committed to both ethical and sustainable business practices. This means being conscious of the social, economic and environmental impact on the planet, our employees, customers and local communities. We’re proud to continually invest in exploring and adopting innovative sustainable practices with a focus on community, volunteering and fundraising, reducing consumption of single-use plastics and employee health and wellbeing.
The Dr Pollock Academy is an innovative training academy which recognises excellence and develops tourism and leisure leaders of the future. The scheme is leading the way in the tourism industry by providing training and recognition to nominated staff. Named in honour of the company’s founder, the Dr Pollock academy was set up to recognise and nurture outstanding employees. The academy celebrates the success of award winners – nominated by park managers and peers - at a glittering gala awards dinner every year.
Giving back to and championing the local community is an important part of our ethos. Local charity work is front of mind and children’s charities, such as The Knights Foundation and Hannah’s Holiday Home Appeal, both own lodges at Shorefield Country Park where children and their families are able to holiday. The luxury Knights Foundation Lodge provides respite care for families with disabled or seriously ill children, with a spacious outdoor deck area, wet room and state of the art wheelchair ramps and hoists.
Sourcing local produce is also key to our company values and we are a proud member of the New Forest Marque, a local supplier of New Forest goods which is used in the majority of our onsite bars, cafes, restaurants and shops. We have locally sourced food and drink on our menus and at Shorefield Country Park, some incredible local suppliers such as New Forest Tonic, Beachcomber Gin, and Ringwood Brewery are included.
The holiday that never ends
Holiday Homes Ownership at Shorefield Holidays allows you the freedom to escape to the South Coast whenever you choose.
