Had a very brief stay here, the caravan was awful, smelt and was damp, our clothes and the bed sheets felt damp after being in there 1 night. The hob and cooker had no ignition to ignite the gas, the job only had 2 rings the functioned, by functioned I mean they ignited and held way through cooking breakfast they... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience at our holiday park. I have been in this industry for almost 40 years and I still do not understand why, when there is a problem with anything, no approach is made to the reception, or head office or the manager. I find it quite extraordinary that a... More

Great ...Nothing too much trouble for your receptionist (Tracey)..having read some reviews after booking, I was a little concerned, but I speak as I find and I could not fault the cleanliness or service. (I am really fussy !).. John Fowler, your Tracey is an absolute credit to your company. If only customer service was this good everywhere...whilst waiting for... More

Hello Lesa Thank you very much for leaving us such a fantastic 5 star review, we really appreciate it. Your comments have been passed on to all departments.

We stayed here last week in a privately booked caravan which was situated 30 seconds from the main complex, which was ideal considering my grandad has difficulty walking great lengths. Most of the staff were friendly, I had one rather sarcy response when asking a trivial question about whether they show the football, they dont, but rather than a "no,... More

Hello Mike Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience at our holiday park.

just got back after a weekend stay. we were greeted with very friendly helpful staff, which is always a plus. we only booked a budget caravan with sun holidays, so didn't expect too much. the van itself was clean throughout, but the carpet had "old" stains on it. the bathroom flooring needs to be changed as it was quite wiffy,...

Stayed on this site in a private caravan which was fantastic and spotlessly clean. The park itself is maintained really well and very clean and tidy. The onsite shop is "ok" for your basic purchases, "drifters" club is recently refurbished and lovely, although very quiet during our stay (just out of season).

We arrived at the John Fowler site for our third visit in August this year with our touring caravan. The pitch was ok although the toilets and washing facilities were a little tired to say the least. he touring pitches are located at the top of the hill and a reasonable distance from the clubhouse and main facilities. Although the... More

It might not be Haven or Butlins, but John Fowler Widemouth bay is fantastic. Yes it has areas in need of a bit of tlc, what park doesn't? Fun for families young and old this park is a great resting point for Cornwall.

After a good journey down the A39 we turned off as directed on the paperwork. However when we got to the next turnoff to John Fowler park which was clearly signed it was next to a sign saying unsuitable for caravans which through us into a panic as it was a narrow lane and we were pulling a 24ft van....

This was our first time camping as a family, and it was definitely our last! When we arrived the receptionist was lovely, but clearly she was massively multi tasking as it was hard to keep her attention. She gave us a map to our pitch which we found easily. The pitch was on top of a huge hillside, and when... More

Hello Gemma Your review confuses me a little - you requested to be in a secluded spot, which would, by its very nature, be away from everything, and then not being happy to be away from everything. We do try to heed our clients requests. I think possibly that you missed the main toilet block - true the auxiliary block... More

We stayed here as a family of 5 with our dog, Friday-Monday caravan was ok, no concerns here, didn't use the entertainment as we had the dog with us, site has lovely views, only a short walk to the beach, and Bude is only a short drive, and is a beautiful little town. Would go back
