Halloween Half-Term Breaks

Spooktacular half-term breaks

Escape to one of our holiday parks in Dorset or the New Forest this Halloween. With themed entertainment and cosy self-catering accommodation, here makes the perfect place for a family getaway in October half-term.

With the leaves falling from the trees and misty evenings drawing in, the parks undergo an eerily beautiful transformation here at Shorefield Holidays. Things turn positively batty across our parks, with a range of fantastic Halloween activities for boys and ghouls of all ages!

But that's not all - be sure to keep on the lookout for Frankenstein Cyril and Cybil* the witch when you visit Shorefield Country Park or Oakdene Forest Park!

You can also take advantage of all the fantastic facilities and themed entertainment, all of which is included in the price of your holiday.

We're always reviewing the latest Government advice and the gang are nuts about getting back to see you all from a safe distance!
