Fort Holiday Park at Sandown offers clean, basic accommodation for those content to have a caravan holiday without the frills. We chose it on this occasion for our Sun Holiday break because it looked like a pleasant change from the loud, glossy, vulgar accommodation on offer at the bigger parks. There is just so much "Let’s all have fun, fun,... More

Thank you for your very detailed if slightly inaccurate review. Please allow me the honor of amending a few details. Yes, Sandown is undergoing a slow change with some wonderful new planning applications being passed. Just waiting for them to get started to enhance our area. We are only 5 minutes walk from the beach (400m) and not 10 minutes.... More

Stopped at the Fort Holiday Park from 6th-13th September. Our first two nights were disturbed by two rowdy caravans playing loud music until 3am. After they left on Monday when the "Bestival" finished our stay was more peaceful. In fact we enjoyed being woke up at 5.30am by the lions roaring in the nearby Zoo. The site has a great... More

Hi, Thank you for your honest review, We just love it when there is an update for our televisions and we need to go round and re-tune them all, sorry it took time to get to your caravan.

We stayed for in August and were unfortunately very disappointed. The caravan (which was not an economy one) was in desperate need of refurbishment. The cleaners had done a good job with what they were given but the carpet had a large stain and all of the upholstery was so shabby it looks very grubby. The rooms are extremely small... More

Hi, Your pictures are absolutely disgusting, This caravan should never have been handed over to you in this state. I have no excuses, our cleaners will be shown this review and the photos. Luckily we can work out which caravan it was from the photos and the dates given we know which cleaners are to be spoken to. I just... More

I stayed in caravan 20 with the rest of my family in caravan 10 from the 25th August-1st September. It is a very friendly place to stay with lots of room and is very clean. It is also great place for children with a good playing area. I found some of the decor quite dated e.g. the TV but again... More

Just enjoyed a few days here, was a bit sceptical about staying in a caravan but would definitely do it again, it had everything you needed and was pretty spacious, we found the site very quiet and clean and also in a brilliant location as nothing is more than a 10 minute walk away,

Hi, So happy we may have converted another family to caravan holidays. Do what you want when you want....kitchens equipped to cook or as you say only 10 minutes walk to shops, pubs, cafes, restaurants and also the beach and Zoo. More

What a lovely, well considered family site. Very clean, not too many caravans, all sensibly spaced, no cars on site, so safe for the children. Trolleys provided to ferry luggage to and fro the car park. The caravans are clean, comfortable, well equipped and maintained. Picnic benches allowed us to watch the children play in the play area and on... More
