After entering the Park from the road we took a wrong turn as we thought the signage was going to send us down a country lane,so we had to reverse back and then sussed the correct route down to Reception. At Reception we found that we weren't to book in there but had to go down to the Entertainment complex to book in !. We wandered through the complex but saw no evidence of where to book in so came out and looked again for signage,wandered through yet again and eventually saw a young lady perched behind an oblong table covered by a plain white sheet,we approached and Yes,this was where we were expected to be,the appropriate signage hadn't arrived......she was right in a corner,we weren't the only couple confused. We asked if we were using a caravan or chalet but she couldn't remember. We left her taking the map of the Park where our accommodation was marked. Drove around and around and around,couldn't see Channel View section anywhere but eventually found our CHALET.......After a brief inspection we seemed quite satisfied,but....... the TV remote control didn.'t work at all, so I found my way walking down to Reception,who sent a maintenance man (Chris) to sort it out. He ascertained that it was the wrong remote for that TV so he showed us how to improvise which sort of worked,about 10 mins later he came back with a box of assorted remotes and re-made one up which was compatable with our TV, SUCCESS. he was VERY helpful.Thanks Chris for going the extra mile !
We couldn't use the restaurant as it was situated within the Entertainment complex and we hadn't booked passes,we have not had this problem in any of the other Parks we have visited....
The Mini Mart was quite a distance from the majority of accomodation,back up the hill past Reception and down a lane......
Other than all the above comments,the Park was very quiet,tucked away in woodland,no traffic noise which was very welcome.....and our chalet was very cosy as we are used to having a ,caravan with noisy roof (when raining) which it did during the weekend.The double glazing was very effective. One more thing,there was only a bath, no shower,( you could hire an attachment) so hair washing was done in the sink with a cup !!!
