Rockley Park is near Poole in Dorset. There’s direct access to sandy Dorset beaches with a sailing school, boat moorings and a beach cafe. The view from the beach is of Poole Harbour and Studland.
This five-star park has exceptional facilities. Indoor and outdoor pools, a tower flume, and a splash zone for extra water fun, two children’s play areas and an adventure playground mean there won’t be a bored moment. Then there are the clubs geared to activities for the various age groups.
You can hire a bike or a kart, play tennis and have a lesson or two if you like, or for total pampering and relaxation there’s a luxury spa, offering massages, facials and various body treatments to help you to unwind.
Accommodation is in comfortable static caravan homes, or there’s a touring area for motorhomes and touring caravans, but you need to phone ahead if you’d like to camp in a tent. For an extra amount, dogs are welcome to stay in Standard Caravans and on the touring site and can be taken on the beach at any time of year.
As well as offering good food and a bar, the Mash and Barrel has comfortable armchairs to relax and chat. It also has free Wi-Fi access, both inside and on the upper Sun Terrace. For a change, there’s also the Sports Zone Cafe, or there’s Papa John’s Pizza if you fancy a takeaway. If you should decide on a cosy meal in, you can buy all you need at the Spar Convenience Store.
Three buses go from the camp to Poole every day, or the stop for the regular bus service is about five minute’s walk away from the entrance of the park, with a bus every thirty minutes.
In Poole itself you can walk around the famous harbour and quay, look at the shops, and visit Poole Park to feed the ducks and swans on Swan Lake, or ride on the miniature railway that runs around it. Nearby is Gus Gorilla’s Jungle Playground, an exciting adventure playground, and a restaurant for parents to relax. Poole Park also has a rose garden, bowling green, crazy golf and another large play area with slides and swings, so there’s something for everyone, including the dog.
If you want to venture a bit further, at Poole bus station you can change to one that takes you for a day in Bournemouth, with its pier, seaside fun, shops, restaurants, theatres, and seven miles of golden sands.
After your day out exploring, what could be nicer than to round off the day back at Rockley Park, enjoying a delicious meal and settling down in the Showbar to the evening’s entertainment programme of comedy, quizzes, games and shows that the whole family will enjoy. The perfect end to another full day.

What a fantastic place! We have been to Rockley Park twice now. The first time we were disappointed with the standard of accommodation, but we upgrade
What a fantastic place! We have been to Rockley Park twice now. The first time we were disappointed with the standard of accommodation, but we upgraded to Platinum Lodge this year and could not fault it. The staff were so eager to please and the facilities were clean and not overly busy on weekdays. The food was of a good standard although we had a longish wait a couple of times.
