Stayed here early September 2014 on a camping trip. Always stayed at family run sites to avoid the rabble of a bigger site but gave it a go as it was closer to home. We got lucky with the weather so could enjoy the beautiful beach and the children loved the play park. We took dogs, and I would have... More

Booked a caravan for 20-24th October. Was spotlessly clean, very spacious and just lovely to be in. The only problem we had was the beds were really uncomfortable and lumpy. We brought our own duvets so just laid on them but if we hadn't brought them we would have been in for quite an uncomfy week - hence only 4... More

Lovely park great beach and club. Friendly staff and residents. Tourer pitch good, few hooks missing in showers but not a big deal. Restaurant ok staff a bit slow but food good. Weather was good bit windy but that's Scotland for you. Husband loves the golfing in the area

We go here twice a year. this caravan park is great for kids as they can run around and play,as there is plenty on space. The park is clean and very well looked after. There is a shop,bar,restraunt and a play park on this site with a short walk to the beach. Its a great relaxing holiday.

We camped here for 1 night in August. Wasn’t the best start – phoned to book a pitch for our tent and I would say the woman on the phone was pretty abrupt. The campsite is driving distance out of Elie, so not very handy of you fancy a couple of glasses of wine with dinner. When we arrived I... More

Stayed here for first time with our tourer and won't be back! - Pitches were far too close together and of a poor quality. - Toilets were a disgrace-only 2 gents cubicles for whole site and one toilet was loose and leaking. - Shower rooms equally bad with missing toilet seats and nowhere to hang/put your things out of the...

We booked the Heritage Holiday Home for the Monday to Friday and it was absolutely wonderful. The caravan was really clean inside - its the first time I have been in a caravan and gone "ooooh" - the rooms were an excellent size, with the master room having an ensuite toilet. We came away with my two children (7 and... More

Just returned from a fantastic week at Shell Bay. Plenty to do even if the weather isn't that good. My daughter aged 7 and my 2 nieces aged 9 and 13 loved the park which has a pirate ship themed play area and going down to the beach every day. My wee dog called Bertie loved going for walks at...
