Our housekeeping teams attend to our amenities block at regular periods throughout the day to ensure its spick and span for our guests. This clearly hasn’t gone unnoticed by our happy customers, who have remarked on just how clean our toilet and shower facilities are.

“Stayed here for three nights with a campervan and awning. It was a sunny, warm weekend which certainly helped on our impression of the site. The number of pitches is relatively small, and we had quiet nights on pitch 72 without being disturbed by other tourers”.

Location & grounds

We’re continually investing in our site to keep it looking it’s best. Our grounds team have been working hard over the winter to make improvements ready for the season ahead. We’re really pleased our visitors appreciate it and love the look and feel of our park. It certainly makes the long days getting it ready for visitors worthwhile!

One of the top reasons visitors choose Ulwell is due to our fantastic location. We’re perfectly placed for making visiting iconic beauty spots along the Jurassic Coast. Guests have enjoyed plenty of day trips from the park. These include Studland, Old Harry Rocks, Durdle Door, Lulworth, Poole and Kimmeridge.

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

    Joseph Molford

    We have just returned after a brilliant Easter break. Couldn’t fault anything at all and we didn’t want to leave.

We will definitely be back
