We stayed at Golden Coast for a weekend break.The site is huge with the Caravans being seperate to main facilities and appartments/chalets. We stayed in a silver caravan which was immaculate,warm and had every kitchen utensil you could wish for.The pools were clean but we preferred the one in the main building as it was cleaner and bigger.
My children thought the Arcade was great! There was plenty to do on site for everyone if you chose to stay in. We were abit disappointed that The Old Mill Inn didnt open until April as it would have been nice to have a meal and not have to drive.The food from the takeout restaurant on site wasn't good,over cooked brown chips and the veggie burger just tasted of the deep fat fryer. We would definately come back again as the caravans were lovely but only out of season as it must get horrendously busy looking at the volume of appartments/chalets on the main site. We found Golden Coast was of a much higher standard than Woolacombe Bay.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of your recent stay with us at the Golden Coast. I’m glad to hear you liked the range of activities available on park; we invest heavily each year to provide more indoor and outdoor facilities for our guests to use.
The Old Mill pub is open from 23rd March which is the same date as our sister parks, although in addition to the take away menu we also offer a full Harry’s Sports Bar menu, sorry to hear you did not know about this facility.
We hope to welcome you and your family again soon and don’t forget you can stay on any of our parks and make use of the facilities at the Golden Coast so if you were looking for a more relaxing break you may like to try Twitchen House. Aidan Glover – General Manager.

We stayed at Golden Coast for four nights during Februray half term staying in a 'silver two bedroom' caravan. The caravan was fairly small but ideal as a base for the two of us. We were worried about it being cold due to the time of year, but the fire in the lounge warmed it up very quickly.

The caravan was in excellent condition clean and very well maintained.

The club facilites were open although we didnt really use them. We had a walk around the club which contains a sports bar, swimming pool, take away, reception, small cinema, bowling alley (extra cost), arcade, pool tables, table tennis tables and entertainment room. The swimming was free which was a bonus. There were a number of other facilities which were closed, due to it being out of season.

The site itself is big and has a variety of accomodation options. There was quiet a bit of development going on as they are investing in the park.

I imagine this would be an ideal site for families. But it suited us as a base from which we could visit other places. It would be a long walk into Woolacombe.

Booked here through a newspaper deal, just £10 each per night. Had to pay service charges and for the entertainment passes on top but at about £90 for a long weekend for a family of 4 that sounded like a deal! Due to the price we paid we weren't expecting too much from the accomodation but were pleasently suprised with what we ended up with. The decor was a little dated, and the cooker could have done with replacing, but it looks like there is a lot of investment going in to the park so hopefully these little things will be sorted out. We were right behind the clubhouse but didn't get disturbed at all. Entertainment in the evening was your standard type thing with kids disco, bingo etc but it was all done very well. The take away was ok but not great. The pool we used was great and we spent hours in there and the Waves ceramic studio/coffee bar was a really nice place to chill out and paint some pottery.
All in all a very good park and the kids really enjoyed it, which is the main thing.

myself and my partner went to this park last october, and choose it only as i had visited it when i was a youngster (15yrs ago) and really enjoyed it. we were at first wondering if it would be as good as obviously things do change after such a long time period.

On arrival it was as i remembered. everything was great our caravan was down near the mansion so was about a 5min walk to clubhouse and meant crossing the country lane (so just to be aware at night incase car is coming as no lighting, which really they could do with) the caravan was lovely, it was clean tidy and plently of room, it also had on suite in master bedroom which was unexpected. Our patio doors opened to the decking where we sat and could see the views of the sea (lucky for us we went on that really hot week in oct)

The swimming pool we used was the one allocated in the massion which was fab it wasnt really that busy wheich meant most of time had it to ourselves, only thing that could do with changing is having a lifeguard or someone on watch due to there being kids about 10yrs old coming in on there own, and like i say the pool was mostly empty so they would have been alone.
All other facilites were great to we played golf which was great fun (need to put down £10deposit which you get back after)
The entertainment was good and had different things each night, bingo was fun too and they also done quizzes for the adults. The drinks were reasonable price, and so was the food. Only downfall is that we wanted some chips at about 9.30 and food had closed.

We went to ilfracombe and woolacombe beach and both were great, with things to do and little shops to have a wonder. We also visited barnstaple which was ok.

Overall it was a excellent holiday, we would go back again.

(SPA WAS NOT IN USE AND UNDERGOING WORK WHICH IS WHY UNABLE TO COMMENT ON RATING)

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of your stay with us, its great to hear that you are a returning guest and that you were not disappointed with your choice to stay with us again.

I see you made use of the Cleavewood pool near the caravan section of our park, the entertainment and some of our sporting facilities and that you enjoyed the extra luxury your grade of caravan gave you.

We have invested in more fun facilities and entertainment for 2012 and we look forward to welcoming your family back again soon.
