Escape to the South Coast

Oakdene accommodation & garden

Retirement brings exciting challenges and opportunities, and the question of how to make the most of all your extra leisure time. Invest in a holiday home on England's beautiful South Coast, and that will never be a problem. Shorefield Holidays has a range of new and used luxury caravans and lodges in five parks in Hampshire and Dorset.

Whichever you choose, you'll be able to escape for a relaxing break at a moment's notice and find an inexhaustible range of things to enjoy on the doorstep from golf, cycling or riding in the New Forest National Park to sailing, fishing or soaking up the sun on Bournemouth's sandy beaches.

Shorefield's new holiday homes are designed and finished to the highest specification and range from a cosy one-bedroom caravan to a spacious three bedroom lodge with its own hot tub.

For a smaller outlay, choose a well maintained used home in an attractive setting to suit your preference secluded woodland, open meadows, or a friendly cul-de-sac-style community. The parks are similarly diverse. Shorefield Country Park is the largest (100 acres), and has its own health club, heated indoor and outdoor pools, floodlit tennis court, fishing lake, bistro, bars, shops and live entertainment. Swanage Coastal Park is the smallest (15 acres) and offers guaranteed peace and quiet and breathtaking views over Swanage Bay and the Purbeck Hills. The other parks are Oakdene Forest Park and Forest Edge Holiday Park in St Leonards, Ringwood in Hampshire, and Merley Court Holiday Park in Wimborne, Dorset.
