I booked a long weekend at White Acres for the weekend of 11th Oct via the ParkDean website. Booking online was easy and I received confirmation emails, directions e.t.c. I was called the night before and offered a cheap upgrade from their basic caravan to one of the lodges, as it was a weekend for a birthday and the upgrade was very reasonable we upgraded. Apparently this is quite common especialy in quieter times, so its worth bearing in mind and you might want to take the risk of booking a caravan with the chance of a cheap upgrade at it worked out less than half the price if a lodge.
The lodge was very nice, it was clean and the (very confortable) beds were made when we arrived and there were plently of towels. The kitchen is very well equipt with an oven, microwave, full size fridge and freezer; you didvneed to bring your own tea towel, sponge washing up liquid e.t.c.There is also a washing machine which would have been very useful on a longer break or if you were spending alot of the time fishing and had lots of smelly clothes to wash!
The facilities on site are excellent, apparently the fishing shop is very good and not very over priced, tis seemed to be true of the grocery shop too. The resturant and bar were reasonably priced with nice food, on par to a Weatherspoons.
One point to bear in mind is that some of the lodges wouldnt be suitable for people with walking difficulties, on one of the pictures you can see there isnt really a path up to the lodge you just walk up the grass straight from the road & although most of the lodges have parking outside we were a few metres away which was only a problem when it was raining and when we were packing / unpacking the car.
All in all a very nice relaxing stay in a park with very good facilities. Would like to go back again.
