Our first impressions did not change! Site was quiet, clean and tidy! Caravans not new but well kept and equipped. Sandown beach a ten minute walk was nicest beach we visited. Will be back. Thank you!

Thank you for your lovely review, We love our little caravan park and try to keep it as clean and tidy as possible. Our caravans are older but we have just been graded and still well and truly a 3 star park. Only a few tweaks could be four star but prefer to be the best 3 star rather than... More

This was our third sun holiday and this time I fully researched parks prior to booking. Me and two female friends use these hols as an opportunity for a girlie break on a budget, using the caravan as our base but spending our days exploring. Sandown itself is a little tired and dated but money is being spent on rejuvenating... More

As for Sandown...watch this space it may take a few years but plans are going ahead to bring it back. After... More

Just returned from a lovely stay at Fort Holiday Park. Its a lovely site, quiet and well cared for, and very friendly people. There is a nice pub next door which does great meals all made fresh, so don't panic if you seem to be waiting a bit more than most places. The site is very handy for the beach,... More

We are lucky to have a great bus service and they accept bus passes. Two busses pass the park entrance and the third is only a couple of minutes walk away. We are fairly close to the station as well if you fancy trying our wonderful roller coaster train system. More

We stayed here in this lovely little caravan park.... With our three little boys (9,7,3) we have all thoroughly enjoyed our stay!! We had booked this via sun holidays deal... But upgraded which we felt was good for us to a central heated caravan... It was rainy and cold outside! We have loved out holiday here and would defiantly consider... More

Stayed at this holiday park for a long weekend. The caravan park is well kept. They have carpark at the front where you pull in and it is nice that the kids don't have to worry about cars driving near the caravans. The caravan itself was very clean and well maintained. Like most, you do need to pay for sheets... More

At such a low price, we were shocked with what we got for our money. Such a spacious caravan with a lovely layout. Very clean and brilliant appliances.

We always get the 'fiddlers' who don't believe we have the boiler settings right. Very technical for me to fix as all I needed to do was to turn it up and 'el scorchio' steaming water.
