Poole’s premier attraction, Upton Country Park is 140 acres of parkland with Upton House, a grand Grade II listed Georgian Mansion. You can enjoy the wildlife along the shoreline of Poole Harbour – the world’s second largest natural harbour after Sydney.

There is so much to do at Upton Country Park. There is a tea rooms with tempting cakes, a children’s soft play and the Walled Garden with plenty of open space and well managed beds & borders. There is a Woodland Play Trail with natural timber play structures and is part of a woodland walk. Upton House is regularly opened to the public throughout the year, with guided tours from knowledgeable volunteers. Visit the website to find out the dates of this year’s open days. There is also a front lawn for ball games and a summer splash fountain. Pick up a map at the tea room for an orienteering course around the grounds. Explore the miles of footpaths by foot on or by bike, or perhaps even with a Segway Tour!

Admission is free, 7 days a week and the park is open all year round. Car parking charges apply. Dogs are welcome on leads and there is a dog wash for a self service wash and dry for muddy dogs. There is even a ‘dog walkers’ car park with 24 spaces and 2 hours free parking with direct access to an off-lead space.

What our guests say

  • Very peaceful Park

    The wildlife is stunning, we were visited by the ducks on a regular basis which was lovely. Our visit was very enjoyable and we will definitely be back in the future!

  • 5 out of 5 isn't enough!

    This is simply our favorite touring park along the south coast. The location couldn't be better with views to die for and an abundance of fresh sea air. The park is spic and span and extremely well kept with very friendly staff.

  • Best holiday ever!

    This is by far the best Holiday Park I have been to. The views are breath taking with easy access to the beach and nice coastal walks to West Bay. If you're looking for a relaxing holiday in a stunning location, then this is the place to come.

  • A little bit of heaven!

    Golden Cap is a little bit of heaven. The views are awesome, right next to the sea. It's all relaxed and low key just how we like it.

  • Fantastic Park

    10 out of 10 is not enough for this Holiday Park. We have been here 3 times and we love it more and more every time. The park has all you need, with some pitches overlooking the sea and a great restaurant.

  • Lovely tranquil campsite

    The location was great as we could easily walk to the village or local beaches through the beautiful countryside. I would recommend this campsite to families for a peaceful and safe stay.
