We have been to Trecco Bay a number of times in the last few years and it still ticked the important boxes. Cheap, child friendly and not too far away.
We stayed in Meadows 1 which is a 2 bedroom lodge not a caravan. It is situated near the main entrance in a fenced in area of about 8 lodges. Only one is owned by parkdean. We had a lot more space than in a caravan, a dishwasher, a bath, an ensuite shower room and a washer-dryer. The accomodation was clean and the decor modern but just not quite as funky as the contemporary lodge caravans. (Alders 1 and 2).
We booked on line and saved £10 but next time i will phone Trecco as i want to choose exactly which accomodation i have. There is only 1 3-bedroom contemporary lodge caravan but when you book online for a two-bedroom contemporary unit you may be allocated the caravan or the lodge.
We took advantage of the early season offer to go for 3 nights in a contemporary lodge as these are only normally available for 7 night stays. It cost £272 for 4 people. Me my husband, six year old and grandma. This is cheap in my book. The park was quiet and some of the kids shows hadn't started but the weather was fantastic so my six year old just played on the climbing frame (while i had a latte!), scooted along the sea front ( while mum and i talked and walked) and he played on the beach for hours! We'll save the soft play and swimming pool for a rainy day.
The coast restaurant served fantastic Sunday lunch . We got there early as it does get busy later. Then spent an hour playing mini golf as a family. I even needed sun cream in March!!!
A very relaxing weekend away.
