  • Liked: 

    Spotless clean, showers very nice. Lots of entertainment and a fabulous Indian restaurant on site. Would definitely stay again when it's a little quieter.

    Disliked: 

    We found some of the other tourers were noisy and not respectful (not the park's fault at all) they need to learn a little respect but no reflection on the Staff and site.

    Disliked: 

    supposed to be dog friendly but dogs only allowed in a small area you have to walk right round the facilities to get too so we could not even use the bar if the site does not allow dogs any where they should list as that had to pay £5 each time i used the hot tub steam room & sauna

    Very clean, well maintained areas and the toilet/shower facilities were probably one of the best we have seen. The clubhouse was really nice and clean, lovely patio area and dog friendly area,the food was superb and not expensive.

    Disliked: 

    The dog area could have a few more benches as we had to sit on the grass.

  • Liked: 

    Lovely location. Good view of the estuary. When the tide was out the beach was a great place to walk and look at the remarkable strata of the cliffs. The massive tidal range - 45 feet - made high tide worth going to see.
    Very welcoming atmosphere in the bar at the weekend with good entertainment.
    All in all, a good site, just too close to one's fellow campers.

    Disliked: 

    Arrived on a Tuesday on pitch 25. Seemed fine and was until the weekend. The pitches are so close together that there was NO space between us and next door. There were also pitches very close behind us. It lost its charm.
