Great views

Quiet park, set in a hillside. Caravans spaced out well. Great for couples but no entertainment for children. Great views of Swanage. Very close to Swanage Town, walking distance.

Outstanding

Upon arrival, I was impressed by the cleanliness of a lodge. It was immaculate, inside and out. The staff were outstanding. I was always greeted with a friendly smile & they offered me recommendations on local activities. I can’t say enough about this park, the staff and cleanliness of the lodge.
