Stoke on trentGBFamily (the eldest child is aged 5 - 14)
On check in i was dreading it.. we hadn't been allocated the type of caravan we had booked.. But with the great help of the lady on reception (didn't get her name unfortunately but she is a credit to the company) we got a upgrade.. the caravan was great,the park was clean and the location isn't the best but its a base to explore the area.. we didn't use any of the facilities because of covid. The only downside for us is the lack of footpaths and parking.. its mostly grass around the caravans which due to all the rain are muddy,i had to move my car as it was starting to sink.. and due to the inconsiderate drivers on the park, footpaths would be useful as people often sped around the site and on occasion pull straight out in front of you.. we had a nice holiday but wouldn't return to this site..

Had a week at end of october. Pubs closed in scotland so couldn't use restaurant although they had take away. Staff on hand immediately when gas run out. Booked a swim and this was well executed. Would use again in better circumstances
