Beautiful location, which is what makes this park!
On arrival you are escorted to your pitch which is a great. They ask questions like what side your door is on etc to make sure they park you correctly. Alot of thought goes into it like where the sun rises etc, and this is a touch I have not experienced with camping before! But OMG when you get to your pitch that's where the greatness ends..... Although the pitch wasn't small you feel so cramped, everywhere you look it's, caravan, tent or motorhome. I have never felt so hemmed in before. I know it's peak weeks and it was pretty much full but the way the site is laid out it gives you this feeling of claustrophobia!! However it was amazingly quite quiet by the usual 11pm bedding down time and people didn't start stirring till 8am ish. I did have to wait for a shower and the showers are small but lovely hot water.
That is where the negativity kinda ends. The walks around the harbour are lovely, we also went to their private little cove where everyone was having fun kayaking etc. Unfortunately tide was in so didn't walk round to the caves but the next day we went on a boat trip and it looks like some fun could be had exploring the nearby coves and caves. We also saw Dave the bottle nose Dolphin who has taken up residence in the bay. The cafe looks nice but didn't experience anything. 2 pools, a small shop and a few arcade games are also on site.
Oh and there is a vending machine by the shower block selling snacks and hot and cold drinks.
We had probs finding a waste water drain for a motorhome, but eventually found one at the top of park just sat in the middle of the road, just hope that no one wants to pass you.... Cause they won't!
So all in all, a mixed report, I may go back but out of season when the pitches will hopefully be quieter because the setting and surrounding areas are beautiful.
