Just come back from a great 4 night stay.
We stayed in a 3 bed caravan, which was plenty big enough for 3 adults and 3 children for a short stay. It was spotlessly clean and the washer/dryer was a godsend when it came to all the wet towels. There was loads of storage too, the double bed lifted to reveal a fab storage area for suitcases, wellies, all the stuff you want out of the way.
We didn't visit the club in the evenings so I can't comment on the entertainment, same for the food as we either cooked (for which the kitchen was very well equipped and a proper cooker! And a table you could get 6 round very comfortably) or went into Torquay(park is on the outskirts of town, at least 10 min drive to the harbour/beach)
The indoor pool wasn't that big and only had the one slide but there was a separate paddling area for Toddlers and a good selection of balls, floats, etc for the kids. Plenty to keep my 7,5 and 2 year old happy and it never felt overcrowded.
If your looking for a park with loads to do then this is not for you, but we liked it for that reason, not a lot for the children to be pestering for. The site has a good range of stuff like bats, balls etc to borrow for free, our kids enjoyed playing football, basketball and badminton with other kids on he park, all free! There's a lovely (brand new) playground. Crazy golf is really crazy though, built on a slope!
We would recommend this park 100% and wouldn't think twice about going again.
And our favourite trip out was a day out to Dawlish on the train, lovely quiet beach right next to the train line, and a fantastic cream tea at the Old Mill Tea Rooms.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- It was the Vistorian's who coined the phrase 'the English Riviera', likening this stunning 22 mile stretch of Devonshire coastline to its French equivalent. And with its balmy weather, sub-tropical plants, gastronomic delights and colourful waterfronts, it's easy to see why. So where better to spend the summer than at Torquay holiday park, close to all the Riviera's finest attractions. * A lively park in a country hillside setting * Stunning views towards nearby Torquay * Close to Brixham and Paignton seaside resorts * Blue Flag beaches just three miles away * Fantastic Showtime Entertainment ... more less
