Haven't stayed in a caravan for years so was very pleasantly surprised by Waterside. We paid less than it would have cost to rent privately due to 25% discount as it was September. First impressions were great thanks to the friendly reception staff. The caravan was lovely and clean, we stayed in yellow area less than a minutes walk to main areas. Indoor play area was nice for younger kids, our son (aged 4) didn't like the kids entertainment though. He loved the funfair just outside the park, beach wasn't great but we had so many great days out it didn't matter. Abbotsbury swannery is great, Weymouth Sea Life centre, Sandbanks, Chesil Beach, Poole and Brownsea Island fantastic, Abbotsbury tropical gardens, Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove, Wareham and Monkey World, Nothe Fort and many more, lovely area - we would love to come back as didn't do all we wanted to do.Swimming pool was clean and never over crowded, didn;t get a chance to visit the Waterside venue but everyone said it was good. Visited the Spyglass Inn about 3 times, just the best carvery we have ever had, you must try it. Lovely big clean pub with outdoor play area for kids and views stretching to Weymouth and beyond. Just walk out of the park turn right, straight up the hill and past the cafe on the top of the hill its at the bottom of the hill. About 10 minutes walk. Wish we had a pub like this near us! Avoid the other pub inbetween the 2 Haven sites The Spice Ship - it was truly awful. Bus comes directly into the park if you want to go into Weymouth, we walked it and it is a nice walk but without a 4 year old would be better! All in all, we had a great week and would go back again in a hearbeat, first time in ages we have all been relaxed and suited everybody.
