We stayed here for 6 nights over our half term break which was different to much of the rest of the country. We had an A5 chalet for myself, hubby and our 2 children who are 7 and 10. The location was great, although we were a distance from the beach and the pool, it wasn't so windy. The beach was amazing and we did get to go on it a few times! The pool was good although they could've done with extending the opening hours till 8pm. No other facilities were open but for us that was perfect!! We didn't want them! the children enjoyed the play areas and there were little ones dotted aroung the groups of chalets. The only problems we had were with some of the other children around our chalet whose parents weren't monitoring them when they were out playing and they thought it was great fun to bang on our windows and doors and kick the ball at our chalet: why do some parents allow their children to do this? They stopped when my husband visited their parents (to their surprise!) but he shouldn't have to have done that. The chalet was warm, and spacious with a bath (great!), although the main bed was a little uncomfy. There was plenty of space to park. It was reasonably clean. Reception were very helpful: get seal sanctuary tickets there, it's the cheapest!! We went to Falmouth, Penzance, st Micheals Mount, Lands End (very commercialised: £5 to park!), St Ives (lovely harbour), toured a tin mine, and the seal sanctuary as well as the local beaches. There was plenty to do even in the showers we had! Would I go there again? Yes, definately, but not in high season, the park is very big, 1000 pitches including camping so I could imagine it'd have been heaving! It was excellent value for money.
