We've just got back from a week at Castaways and we had a great time. The site is quiet, and compact, situated really close to a lovely beach via some steps. I'm not sure why people moan about the steps being steep and their dogs couldn't use them? My 4 year old and not so spritely parents had no problems going up and down them.
Overall the caravans are in good nick, everything you would expect. The only annoyances we had was it smelt a bit like wet dog, but then it's a dog friendly park, so we just got on with it. The blinds in the caravans are in need of a dire clean. I nearly did it myself! We didn't speak to anyone about this so I'm not sure it's fair to add this, but it's an honest review of the van. The Tv didn't work from Wednesday to Friday and when you have a little person you're a bit confined in the evenings. We did speak to Richard who came to check it and assured us it was most likely the weather.
Even though we had a few annoyances, this park is really well maintained, the park for kids is lovely and the pub is just a stones throw from any caravan, yet you can't hear the entertainment of an evening, which was great. The shop has everything you need if you forget anything and the staff are really friendly.
Woke up to a seal every morning, swimming about in the sea just outside our caravan which was wonderful. And the Gas terminal that is next door, well we didn't notice it much at all. In fact, I got some lovely sunset pictures with the terminal included. Some people just like to moan for the sake of it, and you have more than 1 window in your caravan, if you don't like the view look out another one!!!
I will definitely recommend this park, the staff and the area. Had a thoroughly good time and was sad to leave.
