“Good value break”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

Visited here recently on a Sun £10 holiday. Caravan was dated but clean and was well equipped. Good location, lots to do locally with the steam train and beaches. Used the pool which again was clean and supervised but cannot comment on the other facilities on site. If you don't go for a heated caravan then definitely bring your own electric heaters for the bedrooms if in Spring or Autumn.

Stayed October 2013, traveled with family

We stayed here in july as well in a platinum caravan and had the most beautiful view of the beach right from our balcony the staff were fantastic and always helpful and the entertainment staff were always there with a big smile for the kids. We stayed again the first wk in oct on a sun holiday and also had an upgrade to a silver van it was lovely and still close to all the amenities the pool was always warm and always had lifeguards present and when we went in july we even got to use the outdoor pool which the kids loved, the park is clean and tidy and well looked after was always vans around with park keepers cleaning etc would defiantly go back again and have recommended to plenty of people

We booked through the sun £9.50 holidays and chose Torbay as we had stayed before and had a great time In May. We were pleasantly surprised to be given an upgrade at no extra cost to a gold caravan and were able to book in well before the allocated 4pm take over time.
The entertainment team were very friendly and always had time to talk to us as well as putting on a very professional show, the food in the restaurant was excellent with a great choice to suit everyone.
We will definitely be returning and I would recommend to anyone look for a great value holiday.

We booked our holiday here through the Sun £9.50 promotion and only had a little on top of that to pay for passes. So all in all it cost us £83 for 3 of us. We did not pay to upgrade our caravan so were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded from a 2 bed Bronze to a 3 bed Gold on arrival.

We arrived at 2pm and our caravan wasn't ready so we went swimming and checked in at 4pm. Check in was easy and staff were very friendly.

Even though we stayed at the end of the season, the park is immaculately kept, as are the caravans and the only activity closed was the Outdoor pool. Although this is a smaller park than some of the bigger chains like Haven there is lots to do and keep the kids entertained for a week. The pool complex is lovely with stuff for the adults too.

Food and drink is a little expensive but no more so than other parks. It is of good quality and very good service.

The entertainment is what you would expect with some evenings being better than others.

You can walk to the beach from here but it is a bit of a trek. It is 5 mins drive from Torquay and Paignton with loads to do.

This is the nicest holiday Park we have ever stayed at and we have all enjoyed it very much. We will definitely return!

got back from hoburne Torbay on the 28th sept , we had a very good holiday. The caravan was hired from H & H Caravans, so I do not know what the site owned caravans are like, but I would recommend H & H Caravans as the caravan we had was very clean and warm. As my husband is in a wheelchair Mel from H & H recommend the caravan we hired would be suitable for us to get to all the shop and club easily. The club was very good, easy to get in with a wheelchair, the prices was a bit high in the bar but the entertainment made up for it.The entertainment started with the childrens entertainers which it looked like they were enjoying, then they had bingo, a quiz the they had star caberate every night. Even at this late in the season the brought in 3 very good acts and even the shows that the entertainment team did were very good. It was good that all the team could sing and were very pleasant. Thank you for a very good holiday and we will be booking again

As our first time visiting this part of the country I have to say we made a good choice selecting this park. The caravan we were allocated, on the Lark area, was very clean and well stock with kitchen utensils and the view out over the bay was exceptional. The only thing I would have liked to have had would be basic cleaning materials, i.e. washing up liquid, toilet roll etc. (but then again if these items are stocked some people might not leave them for the next!) . The facilities on site are good also, shop well stocked and priced reasonably. Entertainment is scheduled nightly and displayed in the reception, as this was not to our personal taste we did not partake, so cannot comment on the quality on the acts, but all looked very professional from the details given. We did have a drink in the bar, and prices are on the steep side, which is a bit naughty when families with small children are a bit of a captive audience! Overall we had a lovely holiday and would return to this park. (We liked it so much we are even considering buying a caravan!)

Room Tip: Views on Lark area are lovely, worth spending a little extra to choice silver or gold rated caravan
