Our caravan on the resort was fab... it had everything we needed, and it was a perfect size, we loved it. However, the cleanliness does need to be addressed. On pulling up sofa cushions (my son dropped something down there) we found sweets, an old sock, and mouldy tangerine peel. The cushions were also quite stained. I would also mention that there was a bin lid and no bin in the kitchen and for a van that sleeps up to I think 8, there was only 1 glass. We could not park our car next to the van like everyone else, as it was just a sludgy mess, we had to pick our way through a slidy mud path when trying to get in and out of our van. The facilities were fairly poor, our son however enjoyed the arcade, 1 of the days everything was unplugged as the ceiling was leaking due to the wet weather, the swimming pool looks old and antiquated, with old concrete surrounding, even my 8 year old son said Mum Im not going in there. This park could be really nice with some serious investment and a really good cleaning team onboard. I will say that the staff were all really lovely and helpful. In terms of check out, there was no instructions on what to do, there was no reception point to speak to anyone, which was frustrating as there was nobody to speak with. We were only really basing ourselves at the park whilst out visiting family and friends in Scotland, if this had been my main holiday, I probably would have checked out upon arrival and looked for somewhere else.

Once again a fabulous holiday Abi, Ellie and Danielle what an amazing entertainment team our kids loved it the Halloween night was great …. Could there be improvements, yes certainly especially upgrading the swimming pool (it’s looking a bit shabby) and the roof in the main building (the rain poured in on a couple of the days one resulting in the arcade being closed ) but honestly overall a fabulous holiday and one we will be back. Thank you
