I was looking for an old caravan site I used to have holidays in Sandown with my parents many moons ago. Unfortunately that site is now a housing estate but fortunately I found Fort Holiday Park. We spent a week there in September 2016 and found the place absolutely amazing. We were greeted by Jane and Dave who were the...

WOW!!! thank you for your glowing review... We have spent a lot of time this year looking at the smaller things to enhance your holiday experience. For 2017 we have 6 more centrally heated caravans coming on to the park from a 5 star park to replace some older models, so we are not forgetting the larger items either. Looking...

Lovely family-run, family-oriented caravan park. The caravan we stayed in was not the most modern but it was very comfortable and had all of the facilities we needed for our 5 night stay. The information booklet we received was comprehensive, giving information about the local area and the caravan park. Simple things like providing a dishcloth and tea towel were...

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our park. Yes, our caravans are of the older type, but hopefully very clean and comfortable.

Once again fort has come up trumps. A lovely caravan, comfortable equipped with everything you might need. Rain or shine there's lots to do on the island and even if you don't drive there's the bus stop right outside, short ride to anywhere on the island. Great value for a great week.

Me and my friend check in on a weekend and we had a blast. This place is near the beach. The place is complete with kitchen utensils we need. We just bought our food for barbeque and we are all set.

We stayed for three nights and everything about the caravan was great. We enjoyed the space, the children enjoyed their own rooms. The owners were welcoming and answered all our questions! We thoroughly enjoyed the location as we were able to walk to the beach in minutes. Recommend the Caulkhead pub for food - perfect. A great stay, thankyou.

We recently stayed at Fort Holiday Park in an Excalibur 8 with central heating. What a delightful park, a lovely welcome and a very comfy and great sized caravan all in a stones throw (well a few minutes walk!) from Sandown beach. It's in a great spot with splendid views and on the whole it was extremely quiet. It was...

We stayed here during the May bank holiday 2015 as part of a Sun holiday deal. Was very happy with the site, as small, quiet, no clubhouse and very near beach and shops. Would use again and recommend.
