    This is the 2nd time we have stayed here. The first time, we were allocated a pitch which was fairly uneven for our touring caravan and we had problems towing the caravan off.
    This year, however we were given the pitch we requested and it was absolutely brilliant! The site itself lends itself to accommodate all ages and requirements. As a retired couple, we were looking for a holiday which gave us peace, whilst not being too far from nearest town ( walking distance) and right on the beach. This was just what we was looking for.
    Staff are really helpful and friendly.
    The site has a small restaurant and bar, swimming pool, and all are absolutely immaculate, spotlessly clean, which we made good use of.
    The sites toilet and shower facilities are very basic, but clean.
    There is a children's play area and kids club with activities every day. Also a games room.
    The area is a haven for cyclists with miles and miles of cycle tracks through the pine forest and beside the main road and the site hires bikes if you forget to take yours.
    Generally speaking, this site is everything we look for in a holiday to relax and just get away from the razzmatazz of everyday life. Perfect.

    Disliked: 

    Site large and plenty of people there so a little crowded at times ( but site well laid out to make it seem smaller/more 'own space')
    Pitch size OK but would have been nicer if larger and more privacy between adjoining pitches.
