The caravan was lovely with a beautiful view .It was lovely and clean when we arrived. The van was dog friendly and had a large decking. The gate was missing which was a shame but we blocked it off with chairs so the dog could go out on the decking too. Pool was good and quiet. You had to book due to covid. A small but well maintained arcade. Food is alright in the restaurant. Same kitchen as the takeaway and can be over whelmed so expect a wait. There's a distance to the next nearest food place. There's a small shop on site that was useful and well stocked

The touring pitches looked great on the map but in essence there is no grass, it’s a little bit like a lay-by off the very busy and noisy (all night with freight ) A75 . Just rubble hard core to look at and near impossible on our pitch to get heavy duty rock pegs even to get a grip so awning was practically falling down. On map the grey and chemical disposal points are miss placed and so it was a real walk to go and empty. Showers were good and clean but no ladies dryers ( essential as you probably know ! ) the rob and roll was average at best although staff were great food was poor and altogether everything on site was way too busy for the amount of people, th3y obviously just keep adding more statics and haven’t expanded or modernised their facilities in line with revenues and guest numbers, wouldn’t recommended I’m afraid,

Contactless check in was fab. The site was such good value for money. Toilets and showers were spotless and well heated which made showering a pleasure. We visited the sports bar which was friendly and there was even a free pub quiz on the Sunday evening. We also used the onsite shop which had everything we needed. Will definitely return and also would recommend to friends.

AS usual amazing time here, the campsite is immaculate and well cared for. The complex is clean and tidy and the food and entertainment is good. Having the 2 small beach areas on the edge of the site is a god send it saves traveling with the children. They played in the rock pools and paddles in the sea, we purchased crab lines on site and it kept them entertained for hours. The shop is a premier so not overly priced and has a good variety of goods, All in all you don't need to leave the site to have a good time.

We had an absolutely wonderful weekend. The park is lovely, set in a brilliant and beautiful location. It is immaculately kept, which considering how busy it was is impressive. We ate in The Rob n roll restaurant on park on two occasions and it was brilliant. The food was lovely and really, really well priced. Lena In the restaurant is a credit to the company. She was friendly, helpful and very good at her job. Well done Lena. We enjoyed good entertainment in the cabaret bar which was great for both children and adults. Angelina is brilliant at what she does, again very friendly and helpful throughout. (As was the girl with the Scouse accent who’s name I have forgotten. I was expecting to be ripped off with prices like you normally do in such places but this was simply not the case. Only negative was the arcade closing so early to the disappointment of the kids. Swimming was good, beach is nice. Parks are good. Overall I’m very happy to recommend this holiday park. Well done.
