What our guests say
A gem of a place
What a find. I almost don’t want to tell you about it.
It’s a family park with lovely, mostly new, fresh, clean spacious caravans – all set out almost in steps on the side of a small hill. The larger hill rises behind you, the sea spreads out in front and the swimming pool beckons behind the bar.
The people are friendly, the site is clean and welcoming and the scenery unbeatable. It’s a gem of a place.
Always my no.1 choice when visiting Swanage
Always my no.1 choice when visiting Swanage. A truly wonderful location, lying under the stunning Ballard Down and surrounded by beautiful countryside. Being only a 10 min walk from Swanage and the coast means it’s conveniently located for all amenities.
The staff are always very helpful to sort out any problems and keep the site in fantastic condition. A 5-star park.
Friendly, clean & well kept
Stayed here as a base to tour Isle of Purbeck and go on to Air show in Bournemouth. Not the cheapest site but definitely the cleanest and well thought out.
Swimming pool , shop and pub/restaurant all in proximity and well kept/stocked. Bus stop right outside entrance. Grass pitches have plenty of space and well drained with shower blocks water/ drain points really handy.
Will definitely be using this site again.
We have just returned from a lovely weekend caravanning at Ulwell Cottage Caravan Park.
Lovely clean site with indoor heated pool. We went in the pool around 5pm and were the only ones in there (apart from life guard) it was lovely and warm and clean.
We walked to old Harry’s rock and then Down into Swanage itself and had fish and chips and an ice cream.
Staff on the site were helpful and friendly. Lovely stay.
Our second, lovely Christmas at Ulwell
Jane P, Cheltenham
After the success of Christmas 2016 at Ulwell, we returned again for Christmas 2017 and had another great time. Lovely warm caravan, peaceful and relaxing on site and a fantastic carvery on Boxing Day at The Village Inn.
Thanks to all staff who were working and made sure we had such a great break away.
