Me and my boyfriend just returned From a weekend away to newquay. We stayed in the holywell bay caravan park. We got this via the sun holidays which are £9.50 each.
We arrived at the caravan park and it was quite easy to find our allocated van. The lady at the desk said you can park next to your van, that was the first issue we came across. There was a Bush and k tree just over a car width apart, and you have to reverse into it on an angle, so you can imagine was quite annoying. The van was scratched up all over the outside. We got inside and it wasn't much better. There was dust over the table and on the shelves and on top the tv. The doorknob on the bathroom was actually falling off. There was a dirty jug in the cupboard as if someone previously had baked beans and not cleaned it properly. There was a spider web actually in the shower hanging down from the little vent.
Now it may sound as though I'm just moaning about the whole thing but I truly think we got one of the worst caravans because we got it cheap. They aught to make sure that it's clean and that doorknob is fixed whether we were part of the sun holidays or not. The park aught to pride themselves with it. There would've been a chance we'd go back and paid full wack if we were happy with it.
The only other bad point to make is that it's so out of the way. You're pretty screwed if you haven't got a car! You're about a 10min drive to newquay town.
Anyway, bad points over, the shops quite nice not too expensive. There's a little beach about a 15min walk away via a lane from the park. We taken some lovely pictures just as the sun was going down. There's also an onsite surfing shop which also does surfing lessons.
Didn't watch any entertainment on the evening, we went out every night so I can't comment on that.
Just some advice, if you are to book here, pay that bit extra for a bigger van as they should be a lot nicer, the cheapest really is the worst.
