“Motor Home Experience”

Written on: 10/06/2012

Think again if you are going to visit in a motor home, as there are only a few places to fill up your water tank. When we filled up we had to block an access road which of course is not popular. Each time you wish to refill your tank you will have to move your Motor Home to the tap - very inconvenient! Quality of food is poor, if it rains, seating to eat a meal in the facilities is very limited. Visited when the Jubillee concert was on and was treated to multiple 240 volt mains power cuts… Read Full Review

“Another great holiday”

Written on: 27/07/2011 by Denise4.75 (1 review written)

I have been coming to Freshwater Caravan Park since I was of the age of 13 which is 23 years ago and I have returned year after year, the park is very family orientated and not commercialised at all, the beach is not safe to swim in because of the bad undercurrent so there is plenty of signs warning that there is no swimming, although there is plenty of opportunities to swim in either the outdoor swimming pool or in the new complex. I have stayed in the static caravan, which was very clean and… Read Full Review

“Average, overpriced, outdated”

Written on: 11/07/2011 by lozzamar (1 review written)

Having just come back from 7 days in a Super Deluxe Caravan I can safely say I would not return to the site again. The caravan itself was lovely, spacious, clean and could not fault it. I do think people need to be made more aware of the dangers of the beach. The sea is hazerdous, the waves crash into the beach and being shingle, it takes your feet aware. The rip current and drop is very dangerous. I would not let my child even paddle in the water without holding my hand. Even dog owners… Read Full Review

“Nice clean site in a great area!”

Written on: 05/06/2011

We hired a super deluxe static caravan on the beach for a week and it was a great holiday. Freshwater Beach is a nice clean, friendly site with facilities for tourers and camping as well. My parents took their tourer and were very happy with the pitch size and very clean toilets etc. It's a little more than other sites in the area but the location makes it worth it. I would recommend this site to anyone! Book in advance to get a pitch or caravan in a good place, some static caravans are on the… Read Full Review

We went to Freshwater beach holiday park with our 6 man tent in august 2010,The pitches were a very generous size, facilities were excellent,everywhere (Ground's,washing up/toilet's/and shower's) were immaculate.
Our children were 5 and 12 at the time and both had plenty to do and see there and round about,and as adult's so did we.
we are just looking at the minute to book for this year.

Written on: 06/01/2011

NEVER AGAIN. We had a family camping holiday at this park in August last year. Site far too over crowded, loads of sloping pitches, numerous rowdy late disturbed nights (no staff checking the polite rules are being observed so everyone can enjoy their stay!). The "private beach" is private due to it being unusable/dangerous, massive waves with deep drop-off making it a no-swim zone! Trying to end on a good note, the toilet blocks and shop were good. Although, dreaded going back to camp each… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/09/2010

Just returned from a one night stay at Freshwater Beach Holiday Park in Dorset. Great facilities but overpriced for an out of season overnight at £24.00 and we were less than enthusiastic about the attitude of the staff member we spoke to on the morning of departure who was, frankly, rude out of all proportion to the situation she was dealing with. We had arrived at 6pm the night before in a motorhome and explained that we only wanted one night and would like a quiet pitch if possible. As the… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/08/2010

We spent a week at Freshwater Holiday Park from 14th to 21st August and plan to return, great site, showers and toilets are excellent, 3 blocks to choose from they were clean and spotless as was the whole site. This was a great base to go exploring, close to Weymouth, Lyme Regs, Lulworth and Durdle Dor, Swanage and even Yeovilton, witin waliking distance via cliff tops or across the beach to West Bay. Lovely private beach within 5 minutes walk and great pub about 15 minutes up the road in… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/08/2010

Spend 4 nights ,5 days at freshwater, our stay was ok except being in the school holiday, I do feel it was very over crowded !!!! We had no problems where we were on row R. We have a motorhome which we do go out and about in, but did feel there was not alot of room to get in and out. Plus side close to the beach and a 15-20 minute walk to Westbay, which is lovely… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/08/2010

I have just come back from my second two week stint at Freshwater and I have enjoyed every minute of it! The camp is clean and tidy and the toilet/washing facilities are second to none. The club house is a little dated but the staff are always friendly and helpful but the evening entertainment is straight out of the 1970's so if you like things a little more modern this won't be for you. However, the under twelves in our party absolutely loved the kids entertainment and 'Flopper' will live long… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/08/2010

The toilets are clean, the park is VERY crowded. The beach is unusable, a massive shingle bank keeps the water from the sea flooding the camp and its all shingle with fierce menacing waves. We got soaked having to wash up the dishes outside or alternatively get soaked on the trek to an under cover washing up area. The dog walking field had horses and donkeys in it and there were stiles to get out of the camp to other walks which made it very difficult for large dogs and people who werent young… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/07/2010

This was quite simply the worst holiday park we have ever visited. The bar was highly overpriced, the staff were poorly trained and the quality of service was generally inadequate. The kids club was awful, the pool was overcrowded, and when me and my wife ordered food from the restaurant we were kept waiting for 1.5 hours!
On the plus side the area was full of things to see and do, but I would greatly advise a different park… Read Full Review

August 2009. Stayed at Freshwater Beach Holiday Park for 1 week with friends for the first time . The cleanliness of showers and toilets were second to none, the cleanest i have ever seen. The entertainer and all the staff at the stables very friendly and funny. Touring pitches are very spacious. I would recommend this site to families with younger children, not teens. The entertainment needs to be updated and more daytime activities to be introduced. Will return again but not with the teens. … Read Full Review

Stayed in our tourer for 11 nights. Thought Freshwater Beach Holiday Park was a great site, biggest i've been on. Staff were great, toilet blocks biggest and best we've ever been on, clean all the time.
As we went in August there was something on all the time either on site or surrounding villages. We will be comimg back. Also the little pubs that you can get to through the donkey field are a must especially the Anchor Inn, food well worth the money, wish it was my local… Read Full Review
