Not your normal hard standing steep slope, but lovely views from bar 07/11/2017

    Views across the bay. It was good having water and electric on one pitch. Also the bar staff were lovely.

    Disliked: 

    It was not what we thought hard standing was. All the pitches are grass with apparent metal grids under the grass. This meant parking and stepping onto grass which we did not want. The pitches are on a substantial slope. We also found the pitches very close together so you could see into your neighbours window, there didn't seem to be the usual 6m between pitches. It was also quite noisy are pitch was located in a position where in front of us was the exit road, behind us was another exit road,beyond that was a railway track followed by the main road. We also enquired to reception about where was best to walk and neither seemed to know much about the local area.

    touring field spacious and well lay,ed out but maybe where caravans are parked a hard standing or something to counter vans sinking in wet conditions could be applied the showers and toilet are kept to a very high standard

    Disliked: 

    due to an accident on site when somebody hit a service post we were without electric for about 3 hrs this wasn't the site to blame but an apology and an explanation would have been nice and the policing of irresponsible pet owner s again should the park should take notice l was on plot 2 and a dog owner was on plot 14 and endless barking all evening going on to early hrs ,then the disappointment of the fair cancellation and yet staff given out leaflets the night before without a mention then while playing in the touring field with my grandson the amount of dogs mess was terrible then to top it all we decided to use your restaurant child prices i found high the bill come to without drinks to £46 and the meals were cold we had to wait for cutlery after the meals were served then they brought the wrong ones

    Fab site, very child friendly. Used both the swimming pool and the bowling alley, both excellent. The pirate ship play area just outside the bar/restaurant is a great addition, lets the youngsters meet with their friends and generally have a good time. Ate in the restaurant twice, both good meals. Will definitely return.

    Disliked: 

    Could do with a little shop on site selling bread/milk etc.
    Very cold in the restaurant on Monday afternoon, waitress insisted on propping door open, had to eat with coats on !
