Like some reviews dubious about booking this break based on comments made about the accomodation. We booked a Gold plus 8 berth, a Silver plus 8 berh, and a camping pitch. Both the caravans in area C were very clean and tidy, the gold plus was brand new, so could not fault it at all. The silver plus was spacious... More

I could not give the park more than two stars. I feel the chalets and the dis used laundrette should be knocked down. The swimming pool needs a real deep clean and the fact the toddler pool was outside was no good when it rained. The club house areas were clean and tidy. My gold van had a shower that... More

Overall a nice week,caravan was top of the range but expensive but worth the extra. Good views from where we were situated .entertainment team were very good. Ideal area to go and explore. Large Sainsburys just up the road eg High is useful as site shop not well stocked and expensive.

We had the misfortune to book this place without checking reviews. Granted we chose a budget option but budget does not cover it. It was way below the standards we would expect even for a budget option. It was worse than bargain basement standards. We had booked for six people which it would accomodate with beds but it was too... More

I have to say, after reading other reviews I was worried about what to expect, but when we got there we were very pleased. Our caravan was very nice and in a good location. The pool was nice & clean not at all as described by previous reviews. Staff were very friendly & accommodating. Only a short walk from the... More

Club house very nice all new, had nice meal there seemed good value for money. Shop a little pricey , the norm. Accommodation not great, curtain missing which was replaced although replacement not ideal. Large ish wooden... More
