Excellent find for the facilities provided. Hot, free, modern, clean showers with hair dryer (open all night inc loos). Bar serving food, games room and well stocked shop. Swim pool for the kids although we did not use we saw it been maintained and cleaned. Thanks to the staff who were friendly and available. Barrier entry which made us feel... More

Everyone was... More

This is my first ever holiday on a caravan park and all I can say is, WHAT A FANTASTIC SITE. Beside its lovely location, this site offered not only great atmosphere (even for a January) but also excellent accommodation & facilities (shower & toilet blocks look like the ones you find in 5* hotels). Let alone, the staff and the... More

What a lovely site! This was our first weekend away in our new caravan. The staff were SO helpful, couldn't have done more to help. From what I gather, the site has lots of regular visitors, so it has a lovely friendly feel to it.

Dissapointed with the stay overall and didn't feel it was good value of £30 a night. I stayed for a weekend with my wife in a caravan. The plot was large but on quite a slope and they seemed to be very close together and the views were not great.The pool was quite cold and not very clean. The toilets... More

The ground was hard - you will need good sturdy pegs. Plastic and wire tent pegs not recommended. During our visit we were visited by the tail end of hurricane Bertha and so conditions were not ideal. however after torrential rain the site drained well and we did not suffer with standing water or mud. Toilets were old and didn't... More
