Lovely Site

We found the site to be wonderfully clean and the staff really helpful. We would love to come back in the spring. It is also perfectly positioned for trips to Bournemouth, Poole etc.

Best Campsite Yet

I loved the wash facilities! Warm, clean showers with underfloor heating and clean toilets/washbasins. Free hairdryers and all were immaculate during our stay. We used the indoor pool at Oakdene on our second day and I thought it was amazing! I would definitely return and recommend this site.
