  • Lovely Caravan Park

    Simon MA

    I’ve been coming to Ulwell now for around 20 years and have always been impressed by the site. The caravans are always an excellent standard, indoor swimming pool, great on site shop and great restaurant. Have never had any problems in all the years I’ve been coming here and I’m sure will continue to spend my holidays here in the coming years. The staff are always friendly and helpful.

    I have been visiting Ulwell for 10 years and as soon as I arrive I feel at home. This time I stayed in a caravan and was so happy with the layout and cleanliness. The shop is well stocked and sells some nice pastries. The village Inn is a nice little spot to relax and have a drink. The food is good too.
