NorthantsGBFamily (the eldest child is aged 5 - 14)
We were unfortunate with the weather but still found plenty to do. The downside was the pool only taking 37 at capacity do you had to book an hour slot with only 45 minutes swim time. It was managed well, only being able to book one session ahead. My party of 3 families totalled 15 people so we struggled a bit towards the end of the week. Sam was particularly helpful and did everything she could for us and had a good sense of humour and helpful tips/recommendations. We didn't use the club house much or the evening entertainment as we chose to spend the time between each of the caravans. We found the little parks around the campsite ideal and loved how close we were to the beach. I would recommend this holiday park.

Needed a shell suit to fit in.
Swimming pool way to small for a park that size, people vapeing in the club house and staff doing nothing about it, caravan smelt bad, beach very dirty rubbish everywhere and a lot of dog mess.

Holiday park and caravan very good - clean and spacious with plenty of open areas for children to play. One or two areas of disappointment - see below.

ManchesterGBFamily (the eldest child is aged 5 - 14)
The facilities were good. However the beach has pet access so there were dog poo everywhere on the way to the beach, which did put us off going to be sometimes.
Our accommodation was not properly cleaned. There were human hairs in the bathroom, lounge seats, kitchen sinks and bedding
