We stayed for 4 nights on our mon-friday break, the site is absolutely spotless but just too quiet.
Stayed in platinum caravan St252 was lovely heating was good, was clean, spacious, had a Hoover (bonus when muddy footprints), only let down was you could not all have a shower one after each other so we had to stagger ours throughout the day as water ran cold very quickly.
The entertainment complex has everything you need swimming pool, amusement arcades, toddler play area, bar and restaurant but as it was not busy the bar was closed at random times (wasn't open for England match that was rescheduled for 4.00pm) and opened at 6.00pm each nite.
Swimming pool was fine bit chilly but we were the only 3 in there,and the sauna was good.
There was no bingo each nite due to lack of people in the venue so we played a quiz every night at 9.00pm to pass the time...we won 4 out of 3 nites.
The entertainment team worked extremely hard to keep us amused which must be very hard when the room is empty!,special mention to Stevie gee the entertainment manager only a young lad but very, very good I asked him why he stays here as I felt talent is wasted and he really could be going places...he replied he was happy here as he could run things the way he wanted and not have to follow every other holiday park with there day in day out schedule,,which is fair comment..
We did play golf at the pitch n putt site but due to heavy overnight rain we couldn't play for rest of week as water logged, shame as had a driving range and proper 18 holecourse. Also had a outdoor archery centre but that was never open.
Overall the park is lovely staff are friendly but just too quiet for our liking x
