I stayed from 22nd to 29th and stayed in a chalet. I was very pleased with the chalet but I feel the bathroom needs a bit of a spruce up. We had an issue with the toilet door but was fixed within 20 mins of reporting it so big thumbs up there. The under 5s playground was right outside which... More

We had to stay in another camp site which was a big disappointment, but went over to golden sands for the entertainment, which as always was very good especially the 90's night the team were excellent and it was really good to see mark there, must say he is the best one, and it wouldn't be the same if he...

Where to start?! We arrived for a 4 night break this week with our 5 year old to spend time at the seaside before he went back to school. Everything went well at reception with the staff busy but friendly. We were given the key to our Bronze caravan and unloaded the car. The bedding that was waiting for us... More

We stayed for 7 nights and had an excellent holiday. Had a clean caravan with everything we needed. The entertainment staff were all first class, they couldn't have done more to help our children have a fun filled holiday and the level of shows they produced was outstanding. My only negative is that the changing rooms at the swimming pool... More

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

Thank you for taking the time to post your fair and informative review. I am pleased that you found your accommodation to be suitable for your party. Your observations regarding the "small pony" raised a smile as it is always very difficult to know the size of a pet when a booking is made and I know that our cleaning... 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.
