This was a holiday down memory lane as we once owned a caravan for 10 years when British holidays had it , the way they ran it suited us better .

Had a lovely time though 4 nights was just not enough wish i could of afforded 7 or more, the people of Saltcoats were lovely, freindly, helpful people as were the other stayers at the resort making for a great atmosphere. Caravan was the perfect size for us 3 adults and 1 small dog who also made some new friends, only very minor easily rectified complaints with the van there was only i shelf to share between the oven and grill could do with one under grill and 2 in oven and a blind or curtain to cover the full legnth glass door into the van as light streamed in early in the morning waking my son. Also each van should have a parking space if logistically possible. Shame about the bridge to the beach not being open at the moment but i believe a new one is being built just outside the camp. There are 2 alternative beaches of great quality nearby one at Saltcoats and another one a quarter of a mileafter at Ardrossan both with toilet facilities though the ones at Ardrossan beach were better and had outside taps for washing off excess sand, both beaches are dog freindly and ours loved them both. We had a great nights fishing off Saltcoats harbour pier. There are plenty of reasonably priced take aways etc and even an on site chippy so we only cooked for ourselves once, but if you wish to cook your own food plenty of good priced supermarkets available, Aldi, Asda, Sainsbury's etc. All in all had a great time and would highly recommend to others and am looking forward to visiting again when the opportunity arises.

The only complaint is my parking experience me and my wife have mobility problems hence we got a caravan near the venue although a couple of time I brought the car up to venue only to find your work vehicles were parked in the disabled spots ,as there are only 2 places they could have parked elsewhere apart from that your entertainment staff were brilliant and very helpful
