We have travelled all over in the motor home for our summer holidays and, in doing so, have stayed at many camp sites. This is by far the best. The entire park itself is well kept, maintained and clean. The playground for the children is fabulous and they had lots of fun there, the beach is two minutes walk away... More

Spent 5 days on site with their special touring deal of get the 5th night free for a very reasonable £94. I have to say its one of the best touring sites I have ever been too. Very clean and well managed and the on site entertainment and facilities are great. Its greatest asset however is its location. The Fife... More

The staff really went out of their way to be helpful and it was much appreciated! The park itself has lovely washrooms and is in a good... More

We were a little disappointed with the holiday park, the beach which was so raved about in the brochure is NOT within walking distance with small children and a buggy. The beach that is within walking distance is not nice at all, covered in seaweed, not somewhere you'd want to sit with the family. The FREE WiFi is totally unusable,... More

Another good week at Shell Bay on the tourer park. Good pitch and near toilet block (could do with more door hooks or a shelf in showers). Only negative, screaming kids in the Club whose parents obviously don't think kids running about screaming when a professional entertainer is on is inappropriate! Kids should leave at 9 or 10 maybe, babies... More

Lovely location next to the beach, great play area for kids and plenty space to run around. The facilities were spotless as was the park itself. The only downside I felt it was a bit crammed full of touring caravans with not much space for camping. Very quiet at night though, didn't go into the bar or restaurant so can't... More
