Just returned from an enjoyable week-end break at Pakefield, yes the camp probably does need some upgrading but where else would you find such value for money. The food is fine always a reasonable choice, we come here for a relaxing time and will be returning.

Have been to pakefield on several occasion but have to say things have go so much better. Food was never the greatest but during our stay it was more than acceptable. The chalet although basic was very clean all that let it down was the bedding , one piece of advice I would give is take a fitted sheet as... More

Booked a value price however, our room in chalet block smelt like someone had just let off a stink bomb! Obviously a massive drainage issue. On the up side food good, although meal times reminded me of a school canteen. Location excellent.

We were here for week this time, we were really pleased to be told our chalet number on arrival which meant that we could park in the right place. A very big improvement for disabled people. The rest of my review unfortunately is very different. The wetroom in our cabin had lots of mould at skirting level, this came off... More

Just returned from a 2 night break at Pakefield. More than satisfied with the accommodation. Entertainment was excellent. One complaint, but one that could easily be rectified. Other people have mentioned the very long queue at the jacket potato/ salad bar. PONTINS? Couldn't you have 2 of these bars?. Looking around at dinner time the majority of people had something...

Once again well done to the staff at Pakefield. I recently took 70 people on the "catch a coach " break. Firstly thanks to Bee Weaver who sorts out group bookings. All my groups room requests were met exactly. If your taking a group ask for Bee as she makes a difficult job seem easy. This place improves every time... More

Booked via Late Rooms just for a night, as a base for when visiting family. First impressions of the reception was it looked ok, recently decorated and there seemed to be lots of facilities. Unfortunately, we were quite disappointed when we went to find our chalet. Firstly, none of the chalets have net curtains, so you can see into everyone... More

Better than I hoped for accom was very clean as was the rest of the holiday park. Big open spaces to run around and lots of large outdoor play equipment for my two to enjoy. Beach was minutes away from our accom, an easy walk with small children. Kids really enjoyed the evening entertainment. Would have expected it to be... More

Stopped here last year. The rooms are a bit cramped and the mattress was lumpy. Rooms over looked each other. The food was basic meat and 2 veg and we enjoyed it. There is access to the beach but not for disabled people !! I would not hesitate to return

Just returned from 4 day break, chalets basic, beds very uncomfortable spring prominent. Hardly slept. Tne restaurant was an absolute shambles kaos in fact only one jacket potato bar and one salad bar had to queue for up to half an hour just for a potato. The food was ok but not a patch on last year by the time... More
