As it was late in the season we did not expect much to be open on the site. Booking in was easy and due to the current covid situation it was no contact. The caravan was spotless and the facilities provided were more than adequate. The heating was on when we arrived, which was nice. The only complaint I have is that although the bed linen provided was clean the mattresses smell of bodies, they could probably do with being changed and protective covers being used so that they can be properly cleaned and sanitised.

James, Katie and Chloe we're fab evening entertainers. They were so good with the kids. My daughter even told James she loved him after they'd been playing hide and seek for ages. She loved it.
We had a lovely weekend.

Sutton SurreyGBFamily (the eldest child is aged 15 or over)
We had 2 caravans. Paid extra to get them together, not that close.
Both tvs needed tuning. Fridge/Freezer not clean & freezer badly smelling.
Barrier waste of time. Waited 10 mins one evening as the call continually went into answer phone. Shop closed, chippy closed….
Great evening entertainment?? Large entertainment hall not open, entertainment was carried out on a 2 metre raised floor. Not as advertised.
All in all, not great, which is a shame as we went to Hayling Island camp earlier this year.
Won’t be returning.
