Caravan was clean and tidy but we did pay extra for a Silver +. Don't be deceived by website, whilst the park has stunning views most are once you take a walk and not from your caravan. Swimming pool is outside but heated well, food is pretty average and I'd rather cook myself

We were disappointed with this holiday, took our three grandchildren I agree with other reviews the caravans were to close together. The weather wasn't brilliant but we only saw the pool open once. Children menu on site was very limited. Caravan it self was clean we had a gold plus 2 but it still wasn't as good as we expected.... More

Stayed in a private caravan which was a few of years old and basic. The park is a small one with caravans pretty close together so there was no room for the kids to play outside. The children's park was very small as well and could have done with the nettles being strimmed! The outdoor heated pool was cold but... More

This was our first holiday as a family, park was great, everyone was friendly. The caravan was very clean, spacious and with a sea view (gold plus). The pool was quite warm so was great for the little one. Would definitely go again.

We booked a 'Gold plus' van for a week. the van was a 2015 model, was clean but lacked things like hooks behind toilet/bathroom door, nowhere to put toiletries or towels other than over the radiator. no light over cooker. The vans were in a dip without views, the only vans with views appeared to be owned ones. There is... More

Hi carl l, many thanks for your review. Your comments regarding hooks over doors & toiletries are duly noted however, prior to the commencement of this season, we did put hooks over all bathroom and bedroom doors. I will have our housekeeping team report back on those, if there are any others, that have these hooks missing and replace them.... More

The location was very good, a 20 minute walk to Goodrington beach along the coastal path, very hilly though!! There is a bus stop right outside the park, which takes you straight into Paignton.

Walt a fantastic review mickeypluto, it Disney appear that there was anything you didn’t enjoy about your 3rd stay with us. Holiday Home ownership may be more affordable than you think, why not pop into the Sales office during your 4th visit and have a chat with Rick or myself? It costs nothing to look.
