The park was what I expected, quiet at that time of year but still things to do. The staff we came across were very helpful, and the caravan we stayed in... More

The holiday park was beautifully set with many coastal paths. The caravan was very good for one in the bronze range (dog worthy caravan) the whole park was full of oak trees dropping acorns in abundance on the caravan. Kept us awake a bit. The eateries on the site was not noteworthy. The ferry cost £97 return which was shocking... More
