Our family have been operating holiday parks offering luxury holiday lodges In that time our two Parks Grove Farm Meadow and Beaulieu Gardens have gained an exceptional reputation for high quality holidays in a friendly environment close to the popular resort of Bournemouth. This is recognised by the English Tourist Board who have graded both parks Exceptional. This is your independent assurance that at Meadowbank Holidays we put quality and service to our customers at the top of our priorities.
The idyllic riverside settings between Christchurch and Bournemouth coupled with the superb upkeep of both Parks has meant that we welcome back many regular visitors year after year. We take a real pride in our superb floral displays, the abundance and sheer variety of flowers in our tubs and hanging baskets has meant that both our Parks have won the prestigious Christchurch in Bloom competition.
The Bournemouth area offers a superb range of holiday activities to suit all tastes. It boasts seven miles of safe, sandy bathing beaches stretching from Hengistbury Head to the world renowned Sandbanks Peninsula at the entrance to Poole Harbour.
There are also many other activities to be enjoyed in and around the Bournemouth and Christchurch area.

The area also offers a wealth of first class restaurants and pubs. The Ilford Bridge Tavern is a short pleasant riverside walk from both the Parks and has a good Family Restaurant. There are also numerous interesting places to visit such as the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, Nelson’s Flagship HMS Victory and the Mary Rose at Portsmouth.
