Have just returned from a week's stay at Sandford. Park is located in a good spot for seeing most of the tourist attractions and not far from Poole, Bournemouth, Upton Country Park, Monkey World and the Tank Museum,Wareham, Corfe Castle and Lulworth Cove. Fortunately the caravan I had booked had heating in the bedrooms also, which I was pleased I... More

Just been to sandford Monday to Friday . Out of season so not many guests. Did not have to queue for anything. Went swimming every morning. Great site. Excellent staff. Will be back. Caravan was very spacious and good location. Ideal base to lots of places on South coast. Didn't have time for all of it. Wished we had stayed... More

We visited Sandford holiday park for a weekend trip and were very pleasantly suprised! Our caravan was extremely good value for money, very clean and spacious. The entertainment was fantastic and the food was brilliant, much better than expected. The staff generally were corteous, polite, respectful and extremely friendly! Particularly the bar staff and the girls in the restaurant. Well... More

We have just returned from the scooter rally weekend at Sandford holiday park, we had a fab time. Unfortunately there was a power cut on the Friday as we arrived which lasted until about midnight. The staff were all running around trying to be helpful as possible supplying us with extra duvets and torches. Even though we missed out on... More

We spent the last weekend here. We paid £369 for our lodge (they're top of the range ones). As we arrived the site experienced a power cut granted this was out of parkdeans hands but how they handled this was disgraceful. The power was off from 14.00hrs and wasn't reinstated until 23.45hrs. There was no offer of alternative lighting a... More

We ended up here after not being able to find anywhere open during February half term. I'd read good reviews on here but was still apprehensive but I needn't have been!

As usual, despite the cold damp depressing weather in February, Sandford brightened our spirits and provided good accommodation and fantastic Entertainment to make my Birthday weekend one to Remember. There were twelve of us in three caravans and we had a great time.

This is a really nice park with a variety of accomodation. We stayed in a lodge which was really warm and nicely furnished. We have been before several times but we have found that the entertainment is basically the same every time. It is just parkdean troupers doing shows every night with the odd 3rd party act.
