Fun Days Out in Dorset

This has to be our favourite attraction in the area located amidst the woodland area of Dorset.  This is a monkey sanctuary and you will get the unique opportunity to see all of the great work that's carried out by the staff - and of course see the 160 plus primates for yourself. Situated over 65 acres this is a fantastic environment for the monkeys.

If you like museums then this is one with a difference.  Families will love wondering around this building looking at the earliest antique teddy bears and more modern teddy bears from today.  A real highlight is Edward Bear and his family of people sized bears which are hard to miss!  This popular Dorset attraction is also excellent value for money.

Kingston Maurward Gardens and Animal Park is a must if you are enjoying a family holiday to Dorset. The Majestic gardens are simply stunning and include formal areas with gorgeous floral displays as well as a pretty terrace, a temple and a lake. The animal park area is great fun for children with plenty of friendly creatures including goats and adorable pot bellied pigs. The site also has a visitors centre with shop. At well under £20.00 for a family ticked it isExcellent value too.

Newlands was in a beautiful location with lovely views but it was quite far from the major seaside towns of Weymouth and Bournemouth so there was a lot of driving.
The accommodation was very good and the standard of cleaning was high.
It was the facilities on the park that let it down however. The shop was poorly stocked with far too many cheap toys. The takeaway never seemed to be open and the bar and dance area was far too small and crowded. We also felt that the restaurant closed too early particularly for families who had been out all day and did not get back to the camp until the evening.
We also felt it would be useful to have a hire shop

The lodge could have been cleaned and checked a little better, there were spiders webs everywhere and bulbs missing in a few places. The drawers in the bedroom with bunk beds kept falling apart. Over all I was happy with the lodge.

A better layout of the caravan would have created better storage facilities. Narrow corridor to get from front door to kitchen/lounge area. No roasting tins for oven if you wished to cook oven chips.

I had to go and buy bleach and spray for the toilet it smelled really bad. The overall cleanliness was also bad.
Mrs H
Good for taking the young grandchildren who loved the soft play, playground and swimming pool. Not enough time to make use of clubs and too tired for evening entertainment. Their swimming improved immensely and they refused to come out of the pool - average time 2 hours + each day!
Mr H
A brilliant family friendly site. Ideal for younger children. A site which has as safe atmosphere. Beautiful location - I'd never been to this part of Dorset before and have been really impressed.
Mrs P
A lovely caravan park with lots of beautiful views and close to the sea. The small village of Charmouth was a delight. The satff were on hand to help with every need and made us feel happy to be on holiday with a laugh and cheerful smiles. Well Done!
Mrs B
