We had a week here with our motorhome. Parked up and didn't use it again - cycled all around. Cycle paths in the area are great and there are numerous beaches you can reach within a 10 min cycle. Pitches on the site are close together and quite compact. Grassy and a bit undulating. Facilities were spotless all of the time and the site was full. Very well thought out with huge area for dishwashing, and separate one for clothes. Combinations of cubicles with showers, basins etc. Toilets did have seats on them but remember your own loo roll! Swimming pool was busy and not attended by staff so you rely on parents to look after their own children (enough said!). Our kids (aged 8 &12) loved the outdoor pool - it was heated. Husband made use of the free gym a couple of times. The town has an excellent twice weekly market. Lidl is about 5 mins walk away and really good value. Any noise there was went after about 11pm and it was quiet until after 9am. All in all I would recommend it. Some of the mobile homes were rather crammed together with not much room for sitting outside once a car was parked and the access paths were quite narrow for manoeuvring caravans but we were fine with the motorhome.
