Parkdean - Sandford Holiday Park
Reviewed February 19, 2013

We stayed here on the second leg of our short break after coming back from the Isle of Wight, lovely site, ideal base for visiting Poole which is a nice resort, the yachts moored there are something else, must win the lotto, want one, plenty of pubs and eateries, facilities on site were clean and pitches were adequate, all in all a good experience.

We stayed here for the 4 night New Year break 2012 with our 3 children (13, 10 & 6).
Had a brilliant time, kids loved it and want to go back in the summer. The entertainment team were fantastic with the kids.
Only fault was not being able to get a seat in Limelight Lounge on New Year's Eve. We went down at 6.30pm and it was heaving. Having said that we went into the lobby area where there was a disco until after midnight with 2 guys and it was great. To be honest it made for a better night than being crammed into the Limelight Lounge.
I wish i could remember the 2 guys names because they did a brilliant job. My daughter requested a song they didn't have so one of them went off to download it so it could be played!

The site is clean, friendly and has plenty to do if you don't want to venture off the park.
We stayed in a Lulworth caravan and it was more than enough for the 5 of us.

Would like to go back in the summer and visit local attractions as there seems to be plenty to do for the whole family.

One of the best value for money parks around. Excellent setting close to local attractions. Plenty to do on park if you don't want to go off site. Choice of two pools during the day. Shop on site. Fantastic entertainments team putting on great evening entertainment. Kids clubs run all morning every day.

We have just come back from sandford, we stayed for a week and it is quite a nice site. Our corfe cavavan was clean and spacious. One downside is that there is not enough tables for the amount of guests for the evening entertainment! We were never able to sit down! We were there for haloween and it was heaving, we ended up staying in the bar by the reception! I recommend getting a caravan with double glazing because people our shouting and screaming till the small hours!

This is the second time we have been and the entertainment is good with plenty for the kids to do, the park is very clean and tidy and they take care of it - the park continues to develop every year with new play areas added this time round. the caravan was ok - but we did choose a smaller one this year and it was really close to the complex.

I would recommend it - but if you want a table for the night to watch the entertainment get in early.

Room Tip: choose the bigger vans

Just returned from a short break at Parkdean Sandford. Having been to other resorts with other companies which have been tired and dirty, it was a pleasure to stay at this campsite. The woodland setting was idyllic, the caravans were well set out and our caravan was in good condition. It wasn't brand new but it was ideal for what we needed. My parents brought their motorhome and stayed on the touring part of the site and were impressed too. The entertainment was good, bar not too badly priced. The restaurant was hit and miss. We had a good meal on Tuesday night but Thursday was not successful. The combination of curry night and the last night for most people meant that there was an hours wait for even the starters! We left and walked 100 yards up the road to The Claypipe pub. Very much a locals pub, but good food, well priced and good service.
We shall be back next year.
