We like staying with you and would happily stay again.

The caravan we stayed in this year was not so practical:

Pale light grey carpets when there is so much mud around is not practical we had to puts lots of newspapers down on the floor to protect the carpet.
Small felt doormat, a quoin one was needed so that you do not step mud into the caravan, at all, even though we took our shoes and trainers off, it was still getting into the caravan.

We would thoroughly recommend having bicycle hire on site, as it saves us brining two cars to take the kiddies bikes and tricycle's with us.

Fantastic. Disappointing that stocks in the shop, bar and restaurant were allowed to run low. Appreciate it's the last week of the season but it's also a school holiday week and park was full.
