Discover Sandford Holiday Park

Come and join us for a classic family getaway at Sandford Holiday Park and you’ll find a lively park in a lovely, leafy countryside setting.

There’s plenty to keep the whole family entertained – water walkers, a water slide, inflatable kayaks, snorkeling and giant inflatables, and even an amusement arcade.

Feeling active? Have a game of football, or hire bikes and pedal-karts and whizz around the park! If you prefer your sports more sedate and with a drink at hand, have a game of pool, darts or 10-pin Bowlingo.

Little ones will be kept busy with a pirate ship and an indoor play area to explore.

Sadly disappointed with our new year break 2018. This is our 3rd year coming back to Sandford where previously it has been near perfect. The personal touches which made the New Year special just weren't there this time. Usually, there is a bottle of wine and some chocs for the children in the van which weren't there this time. We overlooked this and accepted that maybe Parkdean had stopped doing this..? We also felt that the chipshop, restaurant and bars were seriously short staffed. Our first night there we went to get chips and it was being ran by one young woman who was doing her best to serve, cook, prepare and tidy on her own. We waited for 40 minutes and eventually one of the guests went to the bar to ask for help for this member of staff. She did amazing even though it was obvious everyone was fed up of waiting. The new year's eve party was good but the new year's day carvery was a let down. The carvery was very limited with a small amount of meat and potatoes. Shocked to find the tables weren't even laid with cutlery or napkins and previously there had been crackers which made new years day special. Dessert options were limited and very cheap, waffles or pancakes! for new years day!!!
The bars were short staffed and we waited a long time for drinks. Some of the pumps were out of use as beer had ran out! Vending machines were empty, it just felt like the park had shut down before we had even left.

Now, we aren't normally so fussy but it seems that Parkdean are cutting costs in all areas they can but this was not reflected in the price we paid. Sorry to moan Parkdean, but not your normal standards. We won't be returning to Sandford for New Year :(

Hi Rachel,

We are terribly sorry to hear about your experience, particularly as you have enjoyed many happy holidays with us in the past.

The park is nice but a bit dilapidated in places. The crazy golf was a little disappointing and needs some TLC urgently.
The pools tables in the upstairs bar need replacing too. The legs are damaged and it’s like playing on a ski slope. Overall it’s a nice park in a great location, the staff are friendly but it needs a few quid thrown at it to make it a fantastic park.
