Lovely accommodation with beautiful views

We stayed in the beautiful 101 accommodation with a hot tub. The whole accommodation was perfect and home from home. The hot tub was cleaned daily. A very clean and quiet site. A taxi to the centre of Swanage cost only £3. I would highly recommend.

Is there wifi? What is the phone reception like?

Complimentary Wi-Fi is available around the parks and inside your accommodation at Swanage Coastal Park, Oakdene Forest Park*, Shorefield Country Park, Merley Court Holiday Park and Forest Edge Holiday Park. Complimentary Wi-Fi is also available throughout the main facility buildings across these parks.

Please note that Downton caravans DO NOT feature Wi-Fi in the accommodation. Guests staying in a Downton caravan can access complimentary Wi-Fi at Shorefield Country Park's main complex buildings.

Please be aware that the Wi-Fi service is suitable for light browsing and checking emails, but during peak times may be limited. Streaming/gaming/video conferencing is not guaranteed.

Unfortunately, mobile phone reception and network is dependent on your mobile phone provider and therefore is out of our control.

There is usually no problem at Swanage Coastal Park or Merley Court Holiday Park.

*Please note that there is no Wi-Fi access from the summer camping pitches at Oakdene Forest Park. Complimentary Wi-Fi can still be accessed from the park's main facility buildings.
