Booked this site for a camping weekend in early March. The pitch was fantastic but due to the weather, the ground (a bark pitch) wouldn't hold the pegs. No problem, we were offered a 'pod', warm and cozy at no extra cost, or a chalet at a reduced rate. We chose the latter. Fantastic! Warm, clean and fully equipped ....

We stayed in a static caravan over Christmas- the first time we had visited the site out of spring/summer, and had a wonderfully relaxing and cosy break, and a totally stress-free Christmas (we also had a great meal at The Village Inn on Boxing Day.) Highly recommended - we're hoping to return next year!

Really looking...

Love staying here when we come down to Swanage.... the park is nestled in the Purbeck Hills and is very peaceful and relaxing. The caravans are furnished to a high standard and are very comfortable. There is a pool onsite, which is great for children (as is the play area). We have been coming to Ulwell for around 21 years...

This is a very nice park with static and touring caravans. We stayed in a static which, unfortunately was very old and grubby. I think we were just unlucky that we were given caravan which was being sold off at the end of the season rather than one of their better, more modern caravans. The site has good facilities and...

As a family of adults, we rented one of the privately owned caravans for one week shortly before the summer holidays. Very nicely maintained park, reasonably priced, with a good layout for car circulation. Next to the park were a shop (selling basic food and camping supplies), pub (which apparently is nice but we didn't eat at) and swimming pool...
