“An Excellent Holiday Lodge in a Perfect Location”
Reviewed August 28, 2015 for a stay in August 2015
people found this review helpful

I recently had the pleasure of staying at this lodge with my family for a two week holiday in July and August, it was just brilliant.

The lodge was found spotlessly clean, very warm and comfortable and was well equipped for all our holiday needs. It had a wrap around sun deck with a table and chairs which enabled us to sit out and enjoy the sun. The lodge is located within the Holiday Park complex at Sandhills. This park is kept neat and tidy and has its own swimming pool. Both adults and kiddies pools were heated which was a real bonus. There is also a bar/café for food and drink, they even have entertainment on at weekends.

The lodge is located in a quiet corner of the park overlooking Mudeford Quay and from the lounge and deck we were able to watch the boats and windsurfers sailing across the bay. Mudeford Quay is famous for "crabbing" so we joined in and had great fun catching shore crabs, 19 on our best day! We were lucky to be there for the local raft race and Lifeboat day. Hundreds of people turned out for the event and great fun was had by all.

The holiday park sits right on the coast and has a very long sandy beach less than five minutes walk away. The beach is safe with a life guard on duty every day. The beach also has a very good café restaurant and well equipped shop called The Noisy Lobster. It also has own bakery for fresh bread and cakes.

The nearest town is Christchurch, a quaint and beautiful little town with plenty of Cafés and pubs, all are used to catering for the tourists. I found that the local people were very friendly and they all like to chat. Our shopping needs were well catered for by Waitrose and Sainsburys supermarkets, both less than five minutes away in the car.

When not on the beach, we spent several sunny days exploring the New Forest enjoying picnic lunches and ice cream beside little streams in the Forest. It felt like a million miles away but we were only fifteen minutes from the lodge, amazing.

I would recommend this place very highly, to anyone searching for a relaxing holiday on the south coast. We shall certainly come back again.
