We had a week here in the six weeks with our 2 kids aged 5 and 2. The site is very good for families with kids as lots for them to do. The outdoor pools were shallow and good for them to paddle in when the weather was nice. The indoor pool got very busy when it rains. Some people were staying in caravans which did look nice but we were pleased we had chosen a lodge. lots of space and felt very safe for our toddler. A big thanks to all the staff for being so helpful. We are planning to go abroad next year but will hopefully come back some time.
Lovely would and will return
Date of stay: 11th December 2017
Accommodation type: Sensation 2
Would stay again
Date of stay: 27th November 2017

As I mentioned caravan wasn't prepared for arrival in this weather condition. Sofa was covered by dog's fur. Wasn't clean properly.
Date of stay: 13th November 2017
Accommodation type: Statement 2
The reason we would not stay again is because we had to use car to go anywhere
The park itself was very nice. Perfect is you wish to use all facilities.
Had a great time
Excellent, will be going again soon.
A lovely few days away! Caravan was great and provided everything we needed.
Best site we have stayed on for the last 3 years

Been here many times will be back early next year
Wonderful site, with lovely facilities, clean and well looked after. Friendly staff. The restaurant was good value for money, great pie!
Site is near to lots of shops and other restaurants as well as loads of activities for kids. Would highly recommend Moors Valley park and Farmer Parmers farm park
Loved every minute of it no WiFi for most of the stay but once every one adapted to it was ok
The worst thing was kids in the amusements kicking the 2p machines trying to get money out,while their parents stood there watching and laughing.and no security to stop them.otherwise great holiday.
Great value for money
I came for my 26th birthday with 5 other girls and I had the best time. The heating was on for us for our arrival which was so nice with it being so cold out. The lodge was so spacious and clean. They have all the kitchen utensils that you need. The hot tub was the perfect touch for relaxing in the evening. The pool and spa area was also lovely and clean. I will 100% be going back there for my next lodge long weekend away :) Thank you for making my birthday extra special! There isn't one thing that I could fault with the complex.
Booked 3 night stay at Oakdene, was expecting a bog standard caravan being portrayed as a lodge but we couldn't have been more wrong. It was spacious, cosy and warm. The staff were friendly and the entertainment was great for our 3 year old. Will definitely book and stay at Oakdene again.
6th time we have been and every trip has been brilliant! The food in restaurant gets better and better! Will be back again soon!!
