Where to stay

If you’re planning a visit to the Swanage Fairy Festival this year, we highly recommend staying at Ulwell Holiday Park. We have a wide selection of accommodation to choose from at our family friendly caravan and camping site, including a glamping pod and deluxe caravan holiday homes.

We have plenty of facilities to keep younger members of the family entertained when you return from the festivities in town. Children will love our indoor swimming pool and recreational field with outdoor adventure play park. We also have a well stocked shop and bar and restaurant.

What our guests say

  • A lovely quiet site

    Andy Blackwell

    A lovely quiet site, nice warm amenities with good sized shower cubicles, shop not open yet as it’s too early but the local pub is ideal. Staff were very friendly and helpful. If you’re reasonably fit you can walk into Swanage but the bus service is great so why would you want to. Overall a very nice break, we will be back.

  • Super swimming pool

    We have just returned back from our weeks stay at Ulwell Holiday Park with our 2 small children and dog. It was an absolute brilliant week! The site has everything you need, and more! A lovely comfy pub on site for drinks and a bowl of chips, a small shop, swimming pool, large play are with park, and the bus stops right outside.. what more could you want

  • Easter break


    We have just returned after a brilliant Easter break. Couldn’t fault anything at all and we didn’t want to leave. We didn’t visit the pub but the shop is stocked with local produce and essentials. The facilities are great and the location convenient. Our van was spotless and had everything we needed. We will definitely be back
