Didn't want to leave! We stayed in a bronze caravan, 2 adults, 1 child and a dog. I was a bit sceptical about staying in a dog friendly caravan but was pleasently surprised when we arrived. The van was very clean and there were no traces of a dog having ever been in the van. We overlooked a park and had an amazing view. It's a shame that not everything was open but we had an amazing stay regardless. The staff when booking were so lovely and pleasant and check in/out went very smoothly. Our daughter loved every minute and so did we. The takeaway was very nice and reasonably priced. Caravan 87 in yellow zone overlooks the park and is a great spot. The two small beaches are very pleasant. We will be recommending the site to others and would love to return. Thank you auchenlarie

Under the present circumstances we felt very secure and relaxed in our weeks stay. As has been said in previous comments we were e-mailed before arrival at site informing us of collection of keys, entrance to caravan, etc. We felt this was excellent and again re-assuring. We totally understand the need for a later arrival and earlier departure so that a Covid19 deep clean could be carried out which we certainly appreciated. We had booked a dog friendly caravan and certainly the best of these we have stayed in on numerous other sites in the UK. Although limited activity/entertainment on site we still enjoyed the atmosphere of the location and the welcome of the people in the very well stocked store on sight. Agree totally with other comment about being a great location both for beaches and places to visit. Without paying for Wi-fi we achieved a reasonable signal for both phone calls and facetime communication. All in all really enjoyed our stay - so much so have booked for next Easter and looking forward to it.

We have loved staying here in the past but this was the worse visit we have ever had here we couldn't et in caravan till 5pm yes I know we have new rules but the times to enter and leave were a bit harsh 5pm on Monday to enter so you day was cut short and 9am to leave Friday morning again another day lost I know it was only 4 nites but still feel cheated of a day .then to top it they hadn't connected the internet to our van and the phone signals are zero in the site so it made life hard keeping in touch with family it's a shame were were looking forward to a lovely break and the caravan was stuck right under trees so we had shade most of the day only sun left the decking buy 1.30pm every where ealse was in glorious sunshine till 5pm very disappointed don't think we will be back it's a shame

We were booked as a a Bronze upgrade apparently we should have double glazed windows and central heating! Only a gas fire in the sitting area The carpet in the bathroom was stinking of cat pee and soaking wet .I can’t actually believe they have carpets in bathrooms .. very unhygienic The sky light in the kitchen leaked There were sweets stuck to the back of the sofa and crayons under the TV unit .Mouldy blinds in both rooms.Had to call to request bedding There is no way this was even generally cleaned never mind a proper clean due to Covid !! Only good thing was we had to be out by 9 am !!!! Would not recommend

Great location, beautiful beaches nearby and lots to do nearby also. Unfortunately due to covid the restaurant is delivery only but the food was great, delivery within whatever time they give you and reasonably priced. The apoeta bar was all that was operand table service was generally quite fast. No issue with our van, which was cleaned and sealed as instructed. They emaim you before your trip to tell you which van you have and where it is etc which was great. We will return.
