    Aside from providing the essentials, at our parks we also ensure toddlers are entertained during their holiday.

    At Bowleaze Cove we have a children’s splash pool and a toddler pool with a slide. We also have outdoor play areas and an indoor toddler area where your little ones can enjoy arts and crafts.

    At Osmington Mills we have a garden area complete with a pirate ship and a shallow area in our outdoor heated pool.

    At Tregoad and Chesil Beach Holiday Parks, we have plenty of dedicated kids zones including a soft play and outdoor area for toddlers.

    We also run daytime activities specifically for toddlers at Bowleaze Cove and Chesil Beach, such as our ‘Tiny Tots Adventure Club’ activity, full of fantastic things to do for under fives, whether they enjoy dancing, building, bouncing or crafting.

    At Bowleaze Cove children from 3 years old can take hold of the wheel in our Mini Land Rovers and experience driving around our purpose built off road tracks.
