'Stofods' Static Caravan St Leonards Dorset
It’s a Small Park and it Feels Safe
When the children were younger we took a few caravan holidays and we stayed on some massive sites where it takes an age to get from one place to the next, but it is very pleasing to find one that it wasn’t like that at Oakdene Forest Park. Our caravan is really close to the centre where you find the shop, bar, restaurant, Play Park, evening entertainment, arcade and both indoor and outdoor pools.
Cars are very aware of the speed limits, there are well marked-out paths, and it is lit at night time. It is nice with tweens and or teens to be able to let them go off on their own and just check in at the agreed times as you always know where they’ll be.
Super Location, set in the Forest
The Park itself is picturesque as it is set into the forest and this means you have easy access to walking, cycling and riding routes. This makes it totally perfect for bringing a dog, as there are loads of cool, shady walks to enjoy.
Accessed via the A31, which is a major route through Dorset and means you can get to the park and out to other places really easily. The nearest small town is Ferndown and there you have all sorts of shops, pubs, restaurants, take-aways and a big Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Wilko’s. Then Ringwood is a 10 minute drive, Bournemouth 25 minutes and Poole about 30 minutes. Bournemouth is easy to get to from here, due to a lack of traffic and fast roads.
We’d also recommend that you check out the two country parks that are just a few minutes’ drive away. We really love Moors Valley and Avon Heath country parks as they are packed with things to do, like nature trails, Go-ape, a mini railway and play parks.
All the Fun in One Place
As mentioned all the entertainment and activities are contained in one area and this makes it really easy for families. Heading over for the evening entertainment of course you’re not going to be getting a Broadway show but it is good old-fashioned fun. Kids particularly enjoy the shows, cabarets and game shows that are on each night at 8.45pm, 9.30pm and 10.15pm. You can also enjoy family time playing cards on the terrace, enjoying darts in the bar or pool in the late night venue.
Comfy Beds Made on Arrival
This makes all the difference. After a possible lengthy drive who wants to make up loads of beds after arriving on holiday? All you want to do is unpack and relax and the beds already being made allow you to do this. There is no extra charge for the linen, love that!
Spacious and Stylish Caravan
Inside the caravan is finished to a really good standard. With plenty of room, one en-suite toilet to the main double bedroom and one family shower room. Everything in the kitchen you could possibly need. Outside there is patio set with cushions and a coffee table with huge umbrella. The decking is gated so secure for you little ones and furbabies. 3 night minimum stay.
