BrightonGBFamily (the eldest child is aged 5 - 14)
Our only gripes were not having Wi-Fi in our caravan. I don't remember seeing that on the website and probably would not booked if we had known that.
Also, it wasn't clear how to switch on the heating. A simple note on the boiler would have helped us.
Drawers, blinds and toilet seat stained and dirty.

CanterburyGBFamily (the eldest child is aged 15 or over)
Unfortunately our caravan was alongside the busy A351 so sleeping was almost impossible, due to COVID facilities very limited however every caravan and touring plot sold but that meant long queues for entertainment and no swimming all week! Nice staff though who couldn’t do enough (especially Darcie)

Loved our lodge, it was pet friendly with an enclosed garden. Very well equipped and clean. Beds were a little uncomfortable, but would stay again. Didn’t get to see any entertainment as due to COVID numbers were very very limited. Location is a good place for fun days out.
