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

Arrived and allocated a tent pitch at reception , park was quiet at first with only a few kids until Friday then noise level increased dramatically. The tent pitches are allocated not on size of tent or space required but on numbered pitches that are not marked out, even though there were only 6 tents until Friday we were all... More

We have been to elie on quite a few occasions with our tourer as we like the park for the kids and the walk along the beach , however there is no protection against the elements of Scottish weather as its a wide open space, vans are situated very close together, row 34 is bedside main reception which you get...

We stayed in a Castaway 6-8 berth caravan as a family of 6 - grandmother in 70s, mother, 4 children aged 8-15. These caravans are new for 2015. It was a very spacious, beautifully clean caravan and so close to the sea we could hear the waves in the evening in the living room - just over a sand dune,... More
