Fortunately I had purchased...

We arrived on a very windy wet day at around 9.30pm. Our journey in was horrific. For about 10 miles into the camp the roads are extremely narrow and very twisty. It is the worst roads I have ever traveled on taking us around an hour to travel that 10 miles. On arrival we thought we would look around while...

We have visited this holiday park several times and always had a lovely time. Good points..nice small quiet park right on the beach. Great staff. Good entertainment for small kids. Lovely pool..Very warm this time and looked like it had had a makeover. Bad points..caravan was all slightly damp.maybe because it's right next to stream. Food offered was worse than...

We stayed here the last week of August, myself husband and young teenage daughter. As usual we arrived early as it's a long trip so we just want to get it done.
