Visited for a long weekend with 9.50 holidays. Paid upgrade for nicer caravan. Mould in the wardrobe and bathroom. Facilities seemed good. Son loved the arcade and mini bowling :) never visited the entertainment or swimming pool. Would potentially visit again if could get a voucher but in summer as would hope the mould wouldn't be an issue then

On the surface it looked clean enough but lacked the attention to detail, old...

It was well equipped with full central heating and large enough living room and kitchen space to be comfortable, with an outside patio area and table too. The site...
