Three miles from the New Forest and well placed for ferry trips to the Isle of Wight, Shorefield Country Park sits in 100 acres of gorgeous parkland. Bournemouth is just 30 minutes away and Lymington has a good choice of independent shops and a lively street market.
The park has an indoor and outdoor heated swimming pool, sauna, steam room and a day spa. There's also a tennis court, an Astroturf football pitch, crazy golf and family entertainment at the large clubhouse, bar and lounge. The children can enjoy Waterwalkerz, outdoor play areas and the Game Zone.
Wisteria House is the perfect accommodation for a large family party. It sleeps up to 12 people in luxurious comfort and has a spacious open plan living area, a kitchen with a large American style fridge/freezer, a wine fridge, two dishwashers and a games area with table football. There's also a conservatory and patio area with outdoor hot tub.
Ocean Sports in Christchurch Bay offers windsurfing, power kiting and power boating if you want to get really active - or you could go surfing on one the many lovely beaches along the coast.

The caravan was clean and comfortable and warm. The only downside was the television had terrible sound quality and if you had it at a volume that you could just about hear it, the sound distorted. A dishwasher would be a good idea as do not want to have to do washing up when on holiday and other caravans we have stayed in have had dishwashers.
Based on the last visit very over priced for three nights. Had complained that the sauna didn't work a refund has been suggested and they apologised for it not working. staff were great on this matter and would still go there again.
We had a Select 3 Plus caravan, very conveniently located close to the restaurant and play area. The caravan was incredibly clean and had everything we needed. The bed in the main bedroom was super comfortable!

Caravan contained all equipment required and plenty of storage space.
Unfortunately the carpet in the lodge had a most unpleasant 'doggy' odour and looked dirty in places. Otherwise I had a most relaxing & enjoyable break.
Great place nice and quite where we were, short walk to woods across a road, warm and clean and cosy!
The cabin was clean and comfortable inside although the veranda was quite dirty. The main bedroom was a good size although we had to move a bed in the twin room in order to fit the travel cot in. We would have struggled if there had been another couple with us as there would have been no room for the cot! Good sized bathroom and lounge and kitchen area was lovely.
We had a very pleasant stay and would return
Caravan very modern and clean. Well laid out site and enjoyable walk through site to Milford on Sea beach. Lovely indoor pool.
We have been to shorefield many times with the whole family love it from young to younger ðŸ˜ƒ
The surrounding area was very beautiful and everywhere was clean & tidy & the staff were polite and helpful. Everywhere was very well kept and the shop was very useful.
My husband and I came to Shorefield with our children (10 and 8) and my Mum in Law who was celebrating a big birthday (80!). We found the staff to be very helpful and utilised all the facilities, the restaurant, the pool, the play areas and the shop. The only negative to our whole stay was that when the weather was bad on the weekend we couldn't use the indoor pool as it was so busy, however I imagine when the weather is good the outdoor pool would be more popular. The area is fab and we loved our day trip to Lymington, definitely recommend a visit. We all enjoyed our stay and would come again as a family.
my results are given on a previous stay at shore field. The entertainment was ok but could of been better. The site itself is beautiful and well kept. The shop has just about everything you need. The pool is great for children and is in good clean condition.
Great site with good facilities. Could do with a take away on site. Be careful of extra cost when taking dogs. They charge for each one, plus added insurance charge deispite calling themselves 'pet friendly'!
Great weekend away for me and my family, would definitely recommend this camp, and hope to return soon
Great holiday lack of staffing/knowledge in evening let it down (maybe early in season). Also swimming pool (indoor) plan was a little mad, couldn't understand why they couldn't give out bands so we could at least wait in restaurant, arcade or park rather than stand there with kids for 40mins!
Fort Victoria is many attractions in one convenient location. What once was a historically important fort is now home to a Marine Aquarium, a Model Railway, a Sea Bed Archaeology Exhibition and a Planetarium. The Country Park also offers delightful woodland walks. Countryside Rangers are on hand to give guided walks of the seashore and the woodland. Admission to the park is free of charge but each of the attractions incur a small charge.
Described as the Isle of Wight's multi activity and play Farm park this attraction will really appeal to families looking for a fun day out. Recently improvements have been made to enlarge the straw fun play barn and this is now the biggest indoor play space on the island. This farm is now split into separate attractions, the play barns and petting farm which include rides on tractors and trailors and the tractor driving experience. Open all year this place is also excellent value for money.
See wildlife in their natural surroundings as you wander round this amazing park. Otters, owls, foxes and badgers are just some of the species you might come across here. This attraction is perfect for sunny days and ideal for animal lovers and families as well as couples. Located in the Marchwood area of Southampton this is a very popular day out.
New Forest Wildlife Park should be high on your list of places to visit if you are visiting this region. Stretched out over 25 acres of stunning woodland you can wander around and come face to face with various species of wildlife. Highlights include the North American River otter; European wolf, 12 species of owls, badgers, foxes and deer. When you need to re-charge your batteries head to the Woodland Bakehouse Tearoom for delicious meals and light bites. There is also a charming gift shop.
