Just had a fabulous weekend, thanks to Terry and the entertainments team, you all worked so well together, it's really good to see the whole team enjoying what they are doing. The camp is brilliant and everyone there are so happy and helpful, really looking forward to coming back.

The people moaning about it must have gone somewhere else because I have been going since I was a child and now I take my family there and we have yet to have a bad experience.

The park is very dated and the caravan was dirty, smelly and run down. Trains running nearly all the time and the traffic noise is constant. Also dogs barking and people returning late to their caravan being very loud and noisy waking everyone up, very disrespectful. Won't be returning again, there are better places!
