luckily we only stayed 5 nights and that was too long. Camped under canvas. We could only put tent under a big tree which left sticky sap all over the tent. Toilets and shower blocks not clean, luke warm showers. Entertainment was awful, food not much better. Best to book hotel nearer Poole.

We booked a Purbeck caravan through Hoseasons. Described as "luxury", it fell short of the promises made in its description and didn't compare to caravans we have experienced elsewhere. The flat screen TV could only receive 4 channels. Wi-Fi was intermittent, and the van lacked simple things like a chopping board, scissors, decent tin opener. No shavers socket was annoying... More

We decided to book with Parkdean for the 1st week of August 2011. As we were going as a family, we expected this to be a busy period. The Site - Depending on ages there is plenty to do for the kids, and weather permitting they will spend most of their time in the pool. Well staffed and lifeguards alert!... More

Stayed for a week camping. Overall impression of this site is that it's tired, and in much need of care and investment. Shared (yes shared!!) shower blocks were just about adequate. Showers quite pathetic, cold and weak. Taps on sinks needed to be pressed to work, and stayed on for about 2 seconds. No plugs (have to rent a plug... More

We arrived and were pleased to be told when we got the keys we had got a free upgrade to a wide mid range van. We were quoted £60 to upgrade for our 4 days to a top of the range model. We were offered extra nights for £35. We declined the offer as the weather was not great. Our... More

Had 5 nights here with the wife and kids and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Park is quiet, clean and safe, all essential ingredients for a great holiday! Our caravan was small but clean and perfectly suitable for a holiday. Yes there were some stains on the carpet but nothing that most of us probably haven't got at home! Entertainment was... More

Having been through the Haven experience a couple of times my partner and I decided to go with Parkdean and stay at Sandford. We are both mid 40’s and no children so can offer a different prospective. We started with the £9.50 holidays in The Sun and then upgraded with Parkdean. On arrival the reception area is fantastic.
