What is there to do whilst on your holiday in Hampshire:

Stay at one of our holiday lodges in Hampshire and discover for yourself the county’s delightful combination of unspoilt beaches and great seaside entertainments, beautiful countryside and lively nightlife. Whether you’ve chosen larger holiday log cabins with great faciities or romantic little lodge hideaways with four poster beds and private hot tubs, Hampshire’s top attractions are all easily accessible. For traditional amusements, great nightlife and fabulous sandy beaches head to Bournemouth; and Southampton, favourite haunt of the sailing fraternity, is full of lively cafés, bars and restaurants as well as a host of entertainments. The ancient cathedral city of Winchester offers quieter charms.
There’s so much to enjoy when you choose our superb lodge holidays in Hampshire. Motoring fans flock to the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, and harbour tour cruises around Portsmouth’s famous dockyard offer an intriguing glimpse of British naval history. For more peaceful pleasures, and a chance to wander in a protected haven for wildlife, there’s the New Forest and nature lovers of all ages won’t want to miss Marwell Zoo or the Hawk Conservancy Trust at Andover – the Queen Elizabeth Country lodge by Butser Hill is great for walking, cycling and horse riding too.

Reviews from the Hoseasons website

We stayed for three nights and this was our second trip to Oakdene in 1 month as the first time was superb, the facilities are very good the pool is brilliant for adults and kids. The caravan we stayed in was very well managed and very clean, I have recommended this place to friends and family and would definitely go back, very good value for money.
This was a great site us and our family (4 children 1 - 13 yrs) there was something for them all, entertainment was great, and with Bournemouth only half hour away you have the beach. Accommodation was lovely (Burley Caravan) very clean and had everything we needed. Will be coming back.
I would recommend this holiday for families with small children. The accommodation was clean, tidy, comfortable and more than adequate. The location, close to Hurn Forest made it a great centre for cyclists and walkers. My children loved the swimming pool and my wife and I likewise the proximity to the cycling along the Castleman Trail.
