We had a last minute break here, the caravan was spot on for a 'standard' with central heating, comfortable beds and a powerful shower. The facilities within the park were what we expected, and we made good use of the swimming pool. The arcade however, it is dire need of an upgrade. The new VRoom was excellent, and though a...

Oakdene is a lovely relaxing place to go away with the family, in the perfect location. We have been to stay here a couple of times and have always loved it. The lodge was lovely and clean, the hot tub was fresh watered and clean also. Couldn't fault the cabin in the slightest. There was only a couple of downfalls,...

We stayed Mon-Fri 20th February as it was half term. The park was quiet but had enough people to create an atmosphere. The caravan was very clean and despite being a 'standard' van it was anything but. The ensuite toilet was a real bonus. The site is ideally positioned for exploring the New Forest and other local cities. The small...
