How to use this e-brochure

Why Hoburne?

Where you see anything in red and with the above icon it means it has a link through to further information.

At Hoburne, we know what makes a holiday special. It’s not just the places you visit, the things you do, or the people you are with - it’s how all of this makes you feel that really makes the difference. That deeprooted, away from the hum-drum, all-out total fun and relaxation that all our guests experience when spending time with us.

Sunrise

With this in mind, we invest everything we have learned in our 100 years as a family run company in creating those wonderful feelings. Our unique park is set in a wonderful coastal location. Here, you’ll find our extensive choice of holiday homes are designed to suit every pocket. Then there’s our continued investment in facilities. Pools, playgrounds, cafés and restaurants are refreshed regularly (just like you will be!) And, with our people there to welcome you with a warm smile and help all the way, you’re guaranteed that unmistakable Hoburne holiday feeling every time you visit. No wonder many of our customers return year after year.

9.00am, breakfast

It’s how it makes you feel

11.00am, park fun

At 5am, the light changes from purple, to pink, to blue Sleepy heads are still dreaming of yesterday While we quietly begin to wake up the park. Soon, marmalade fingers leave a sticky trail From breakfast to the beach, to run, scream, laugh and Dig up an appetite for lunch Then out into the woods, on the bike and beyond, Leaving peace by the pool Where the sunbathers bask. Later, radiant and sparkling, the conversation flows, The music plays, the children dance Then all is safely gathered in, tidied up by hidden hands, Ready for another perfect day Because we are Hoburne, a great British holiday In one word.

This is your perfect Hoburne holiday…

Children We know that children love new experiences, so we have lots of activities to keep all ages entertained. Youngsters can release their energy in the soft play area and adventure playgrounds, while older children can get to grips with our Wet ‘N’ Wild pool assault course or try their paddle boating skills. There are even Hoburne Tots breaks, designed with very young children in mind throughout the year. And our peak season calendar of evening entertainment means the fun can continue all the way until bedtime. So, whether your children are tiny tots or young adults, there will always be something for them to experience and enjoy.

At Hoburne we have plenty to offer everyone. Whether you’re looking for things to do as a whole family, total enjoyment for children or simply relaxing as a couple, you’ll find just what you need to create your very own Hoburne holiday experience.

Family Family holidays are all about spending time together, and Hoburne Park has a large range of facilities and opportunities for you to enjoy each other’s company all day and night. You can splash around in the indoor and outdoor pools, test your tennis skills or bring your bikes and enjoy a ride. And in the evening, you can share your day’s adventures over a meal at our Brasserie 1912 restaurant, before settling down to play some bingo or relax together back at your holiday home.

It’s how it makes you feel

Couples For couples looking for a relaxing getaway, we have a number of ways to help you unwind. Watch the world go by in the warmth of your own private hot tub, or lose yourself in a great book beside the pool while enjoying a tall drink. And if you want one less thing to organise, we offer great half-board breaks during our off-peak season. So whichever way you want to relax, you’ll find it at Hoburne Park.

Hoburne parks are packed with surprises Whether together or left to your own devices There is always something to enjoy or do And whatever that may be … is up to you

Seasons to be cheerful

Winter

Life shouldn’t stand still just because it’s winter. In fact, our wonderful locations are best placed to embrace this time of year. You will be inspired to wrap up and explore, go for long rewarding walks, or take a short drive to some fantastic places. And then back to the park, for a swim or a meal and some time to relax. With Hoburne, you don’t have to leave the country for a delightful winter escape.

Spring

Summer

Everything blossoms into life at this time of year… including you and your family! The warmer days and longer evenings mean you can get out and explore all that our wonderful locations have to offer. And whether its enjoying outdoor sports or cycling back from a trip into the nearest town for the day, you’ll be able to do it all against a backdrop of bright, blooming perfection in Hoburne Park.

A summer break is all about having fun, fun, fun in the sun. The time of year where your days are packed with sunbathing or sightseeing, long days out in the countryside or simply enjoying games in and around the pool. And later, reward yourself with a delicious meal. At Hoburne Park there is so much to do and see… question is, what will you do first to create your perfect summer holiday?

Autumn

For some, this is the most beautiful time of the year. When you can walk, run or cycle through a cast of crunchy leaves, explore idyllic local areas, or even watch a wonderful sunset, with the season’s vibrant colours all around you. However you wish to spend your holiday, the great outdoors can be a huge part of it.

at Hoburne

Evening entertainment

If you’re looking for a more chilled out, relaxed environment, then Hoburne Park is the place for you. With a reduced entertainment program, Hoburne Park allows you to unwind at your own pace. Take part in a more leisurely daytime program featuring rambles, talks and the 11 o’clock club. Enjoy an evening filled with good company, quiz nights, mellow music and traditional activities. You’re also welcome at our neighbouring parks - Hoburne Naish and Hoburne Bashley. So, if you do still fancy a night out on the tiles, or a day packed with activities, then it’s just on your doorstep. The best of both worlds all within one holiday.

We have created a variety of entertainment options to ensure everyone has something to enjoy during their holiday. You’ll find every evening at Hoburne is different; in between bingo and game shows, you’ll be able to enjoy visiting cabaret acts, party bands and one-off special events, such as theme nights, and comedy sets. And with our Hoburne Search For a Star competition and finals, plus much more, we know everyone will have nights to remember.

Sammy Rocks

Hoburne Tots Breaks Designed with your little ones in mind, our Tots Breaks are the perfect way for pre-school age children to enjoy a holiday filled with colours, letters, numbers and shapes. Our Hoburne hosts will fill daytimes with bubbles to chase, sandcastles to build, fun-filled picnics (bring your favourite teddy bear!) and even have breakfast with Sammy’s Squad too. And in the evenings, there will be a mix of mini discos, story times and nursery rhyme sing-a-longs.

History of Sammy’s Squad The treasure - gold, silver and magic - comes from a treasure chest found by Sammy, Larry and Tommy while playing a game of Squiditch at Coral Cove. The chest - lost from the good ship ‘The Jolly Holiday’ was returned to its rightful owner Captain Hoburne, who wants you to win the treasure and keep it all away from Captain Smuggles!

What team will you be in, Turtle or a Lobster? Will Captain Smuggles steal the Hoburne Treasure Chest? Who will be the winning team? There are prizes and points galore to be won during this fast paced showtime. Find out which team you are in and then join our amazing Hoburne Hosts as they help you take part in exciting evening challenges, team games and Sammy shows.
