We spent two nights there over the weekend, good value for money but the downside is lots of people on the site.


Good price

Toilets clean and tidy

Plenty of water and drain points around


Children running around pitch and climbing trees, this caused damage to our caravan after big branch snapped off and hit it.

Playground closed.

Short of staff, never seen any wardens around site.

Just spent a couple of nights but it is a lovely site very well kept and excellent variety of pitches with plenty of space and not all parked in a row. The staff were very helpful and the bar is pleasant. It seems the toilet blocks have had a facelift since our last visit but just a shame there is not the attention to detail in cleaning.

Nice relaxed Site, we really enjoyed our stay here and will go back again. We were looking for a relaxed week and we got that.

The Shop was good and carried the basics. We never used the club so cannot comment on the food in there.

It is a good base for travelling around the area.

There is also a camping shop just outside the site so great if you need anything while you are away.

There is talk of turning this site into Statics only, I really hope this doesn't happen, we need nice relaxed sites like this to continue not disappear.

Visited this site over Easter, overall the site is good, clean and easily accessible. Kids seemed reasonably happy with the play area. Pitches are close together, we felt a little crammed in, our car had to be parked elsewhere.

No hot water at 10AM, spoke to the warden who stated they are busy and the hot water has gone. Maybe it's just me, but in this day and age with the modern boilers available there should always be hot water!

It's a good location for Poole and Bournemouth and any onward journey to IoW.

We visited Merley Court for 3 nights so we could visit the spectacular Bournemouth Air Festival. Booking was pain free with a very informative website & booking process. On arrival we were greeted by a very pleasant young receptionist who immediately stopped filling the freezer & offered assistance. She completed the necessary paperwork and gave us a map with directions to our pitch.

The pitch was a little worn but large enough for our large 7m square tent. We were situated a short walk from the toilet/ shower block which were clean & well maintained & very busy. It was August Bank Holiday week so I would expect it to be!

Overall, we liked the site. The play area could do with modernising & tlc but as a base for visiting Poole & Bournemouth we were pleased. We never got chance to use the indoor pool & facilities at the sister park up the road so cannot comment on this or the on site entertainment.

The shop though is well stocked & very reasonably priced.

Reviewer: Hillhillhill 7 reviews from this member

Stayed here for 3 nights in July 2014. For the money we paid we were very disappointed. The pitches were not well kept and we were extremely close to our neighbours. The tables outside the bar area were sticky and there was rubbish littered around. There were empty glasses left on the tables for ages and we had to ask the bar staff to clear them and wipe the table so that we could use them. They were very polite but they appeared extremely understaffed in our opinion.

The pool was ok and much needed in the very hot weather that we had but the water was cold and it was too crowded.

The area around the campsite was constantly gridlocked with traffic and it made the journey into Bournemouth quite a drag.

We wont be returning to this campsite, compared to other campsites we have stayed at this was not up to the same standards.
