Oakdene Forest Park

If you can’t decide between the beach, countryside, family attractions or the buzz of the pier, then Oakdene Forest Park is the ideal location for you.  
Set in a tranquil location on the edge of the Hurn & Avon Forest, the beaches and entertainment in Bournemouth and Poole are a short 15-20 minute drive away, and the fantastic family attractions such as Paultons Park, Peppa Pig World, Monkey World, Go Ape and the Tank Museum are all within 25 miles of the Park. With the magnificent New Forest also on your doorstep for walking, picnics and cycling, or just enjoying the wildlife in the forest, the location of Oakdene has it all.
