Summary:

“A very enjoyable stay”

Definitely exceeded our expectations. Tastefully made-up beds, generally very comfortable accommodation.

Oakdene Park is a quiet site right on the edge of Hurn Forest - easily located for sightseeing and trips to the coast.

Orchid 6 is a lovely spacious caravan, light airy with lots of storage - and wonderfully useful for families - a big fridge-freezer - essential for self catering! Good cooking facilities and everything we needed was there.

Another big plus is the lovely large veranda that the owners have added, with plenty of outdoor furniture - gives a feel of more space for yourselves.

Oakdene Park offers a great entertainment programme for children too, and both indoor outdoor swimming pools which our children loved. Would thoroughly recommend this one!

Be Aware:

Allow a bit of travel time for coastal trips - local roads can get quite busy in peak times

Local Gems:

Mudeford Quay is short trip away which offers the best of everything - fishing, crab catching, restaurant, pub, riverside location and boat watching, on the other side a beach - plus a ferry boat ride to even better beaches - Fabulous place to visit! Just don’t expect to find it on some sat navs! It is just along from Christchurch.

Summary:

“We found it enjoyable with plenty to do or just to relax, so much so, that we have booked a further week in May this year”

The caravan was clean, modern, well laid out and felt spacious. Main bedroom has full en-suite facilities

Full-size fridge and separate freezer

Little bonuses like board games had been provided Good size gated verandah with outdoor furniture

Close to on-site shop, swimming pools, saunas (dry and steam), gym and club - but far enough away not to be a noise problem

Caravan is set in well-maintained park that was clean and tidy

Specifically Recommend:

Good on-site amenities

Be Aware:

Bed linen is not provided

Local Gems:

We only had a short stay but Poole Harbour and ferry crossing was fun.

The New Forest ponies were a joy to see.

Some good local markets close by, as are major supermarkets.
