Again always have rented a silver plus caravan but was not impressed with this one beds and seating was comfortable and clean in main bed room no space to open wardrobe door no table lamp had to get out of bed to turn light off cut my leg getting by the bed in the narrow gang way no slice to use with frying pan frying pan handle was very loose , no egg cups had to impervise with a cardboard egg carton I took a frozen meal to micro wave with me but I had to scoure the round Pyrex dish to get the bake on food off of it before I could use it and the front edge of the oven wasn't very clean there was no bin liner in the pedal bin.the floor by the sitting room had two large holes in the boarding on floor a another thing we had problems with was the mirrors badly positioned the one in bedroom you had the light behind you and no lamp to light it up and the shower room mirror only showed the tops of our heads much too high , as I say stayed lots of your sites before and found them wonderful have you lowered the grades of the caravans. I think this one should have been a bronze. Used the clubhouse once not easy to find seating which I needed being disabled for the amount of vans you have on site you need a bigger club house

We stayed here 3 years ago at Easter and liked it so looked forward to coming back this Easter ! It seems to be completely overtaken now by owners and their kids who are at the front of everything !!! The Entertainment staff seem to know the owners kids and pick them for everything !!! Check in on the Friday was late and we were told our caravan was still being cleaned but we found out what number we were in and parked the car there to find a bunch of cleaners smoking cigarettes and on their mobiles at the end of the way but no cleaning was being done ! We got our keys at 4.15 ! Although this was better than the Saturday as some poor lady turned up mid afternoon to check in to find Reception closed !!! All the staff turned out to be drinking in the bar at the say so of some loud manager !! No note on the Reception door and the poor lady and her kids trudged from pillar to post trying to find her keys ! All in all a shambles !!!! Wouldn't go back

Holiday park small but ideal for families with small or young children due to small pool size and facilities. Café/restaurant a bit dated and not in main complex a with other parks, however food was well cooked and presented, does not take cards so ensure you have cash to pay for food. Entertainment was very family and child orientated so not ideal if you have older children like ours.
Staff very friendly and helpful at all times
Caravan was new with all fittings two toilets and shower, kitchen well equipped with all you need and even an iron and ironing board.
Overall a nice break but more suited to young families.
We would recommend for young families but for us with older children will stay in bigger parks due to facilities.
