Our first visit to Oakdene Park proved to be a real gem.

We paid a lot of money to stay in a lodge with a hot tub for 3 nights over the Easter weekend. We arrived to a 'cold tub' and were disappointed to be told that it wouldn't be a 'hot tub' until the next morning!! All the other lodges were in theirs and told us theirs were fine. It ruined...

Thank you for the review of your Easter break. We do advise that the hot tubs may not be up to temperature on the first night of arrival, as they are emptied, cleaned and refilled between guests. We're pleased that you enjoyed the rest of your stay and hope that you will return to one of our parks again in...

The location of this park is fab. Really close to bouremouth, Poole and Southampton. The park is a moderate size which was great for us. Has a good size indoor swimming pool with steam room and slide. Has access straight into the woods. Kids entertainment was ok and our 8 and 2 year olds enjoyed joining in. Nice play area...

We go to Oakdene about 3 times a year as it's such great value for money. What sells it to us is they swimming pool and the flume. There is just the one but my children love it. The entertainment is great for the kids too, not so good for the adults. Highly recommend to everyone.

Just returned from a weekend of fun at Oakdene with my husband and our 7 year old daughter. Arrived at the site at 3.50 on Friday and went to reception only to be told to come back in 10 mins as no keys until 4pm. This seemed a bit silly not a major issue. The standard caravan we stayed in...
