After a 5 hour trip we were very excited about arriving on our first family holiday. Reception staff were welcoming and gave the basic information needed.
Getting into the caravan it was very spacious we went for a poppy gold which we would recommend only fault which was a BIG FAULT was once of the bathrooms (single toilet and sink) had 10-15 fly's buzzing around the ceiling.
Since this was our first holiday fault on my part didn't realise we needed to bring our own washing up liquid and sponges luckily their was a shop on site... HOWEVER this shop had nearly no basic shopping I understand it was near end of season but we shouldn't just be left with reduced to clear out of date chocolate bars that and cigarettes so if you lived on them then great if not you are pretty stuck.
The club house was pretty good for the kids unfortunately for us we only realised on the last of 4 days that they did a Foxy club for them in the morning as well as afternoon which was a shame. Another annoyance with this was the lack of info on pumpkin carving as the kids were so excited it hadn't been mentioned in the info email that pumpkins weren't provided since the caravan park being VERY secluded getting hold of a pumpkin running up the Halloween was impossible gutted that our kids missed out. Cant fault the entertainment we only stayed up until 9 to get the kids back to bed but the bingo prizes where very good better then expected the family quiz was challenging but still worth a shot.
The Swimming pool the pool was basic but was fine for an afternoon splash around. The lack of changing rooms was a big issue for us though their was 1 very small ( enough for two people at a push) changing room serious lack of cleanliness in their so much so we were reduced to running in the cold back to our caravan.
The Food we did cook our own food for the majority of the holiday but on the last night treated ourselves to the chefs corner very disappointed we ordered 2 children meals and 2 adults 1 adult meal came out completely wrong I don't know how you can muddle up a cheeseburger and quarter of a chicken but apparently you can as it was busy we didn't mention it and my partner ate it I had a chicken burger couldn't fault it until... 3 hours later and I was violently sick.
I know I have pointed out a few negatives although we wouldn't go back again we did have a good first holiday and the kids didn't notice any of these faults they loved it I just found it too expensive for a VERY basic holiday park.
