The Quince is on the doorstep of the New Forest National park and is close to a range of local amenities, with a number of large supermarkets within five minutes drive and a variety of restaurants a stone's throw away. If you want to take a break from cooking, a host of takeaway restaurants will deliver to the holiday park.


The Quince is located on a quiet sunny pitch close to the holiday park's entertainment and facilities. Oakdene Forest park is packed with features to make your break away as active or relaxing as you would like!  The Oak Showbar entertainment suite has a great programme with live singers, competitions and quizzes for all the family. Enjoy a meal whilst you sit and watch live acts. There is a fully equipped  restaurant and bar - with optional delivery direct to your van. 

Subject to Covid restrictions, there is access to archery, zorbing, crazy golf, pool and table tennis as well as an amusement arcade.  These activities are run by the park and incur an additional cost, payable directly to the park at the time of booking. Please contact the park reception for details of opening times and costs.


There is an outdoor children's play area. Opening dates and times may vary, and there may be age and/or height restrictions on certain facilities and activities. Opening times may be limited outside the main holiday season. Some activities may also require adult supervision.

A modern gym and large indoor pool are among the diverse array of exciting ways to get active, or perhaps take things more slowly by relaxing in the sauna or steam room  (open subject to Covid restrictions - decided by the park). The indoor pool boasts a 34mtr flume. The outdoor pool is open during the following times: May 29-Aug 30 2021.

Please note that due to Covid restrictions you are required to book swimming pool and gym sessions via the Shorefield app. The app provides up to date information on facilities available at the park and can be used to order food and drinks in the restaurants for delivery to your table or caravan.
