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...

As regular tent campers and hotel goers we didn't know what to expect from a caravanning trip. Oakdene was a great intro. Immaculate and well equipped accommodation, fantastic kids entertainment (although didn't get to stay for adults ents as 2 year old needed bed after kids disco) 9 year old also had wonderful time. The toddler pool was a fabulous...

I booked here after reading previous reviews and for its location.Id not heard of Shorefield group before this trip but on first impressions I feel it's positive and a lot more customer friendly than a big holiday and hotel park chain I've used before. The caravan was fantastic, clean, warm, modern fully equipped and close to the hub of things,...

Stayed here in March 2017 with a dog and young child. The park itself is centrally located with Bournemouth, Poole, Sandbanks and the New Forest within a 30 minute drive. The park itself is compact and surrounded by woodland ideal for walking the dog first thing in the morning. The pool is large and benefits from a new unisex changing...
