Sandaway Beach Holiday Park stands on a low cliff at the very edge of the ocean with breathtaking sea views. Three minutes walk down a picturesque stepped path brings you to Sandaway Beach, privately owned by us, a rocky foreshore and a sprinkling of sand but a real sun trap and haven of peace and quiet, but beware of the tides. A short scramble over the rocks takes you to our secret spot, Mermaid's Cove, this is truly a place of magic and tranquillity for that really quiet swim or sunbathe. Relax with a cool drink in our Smuggler's Bar, take in the superb sea, and Exmoor views. Enjoy excellent pub grub, and basket meals from our Chef's Corner, and view our nightly family entertainment in our clubhouse. A feature of Sandaway is our lovely kidney shaped swimming pool. There is a well stocked shop, take-away meals, pool table, amusements, a special indoor children's soft play area and an outdoor playground.

Hello Cath Thank you for taking the time to write such a fantastic review. I am thrilled to hear how much you enjoyed your stay and how helpful and friendly the staff were. We take great pride in the standard of all grades of accommodation and our customer care. It’s brilliant that this isn’t going unnoticed. Your comments will be passed on to the housekeeping team. It is rare to get a poor review about the catering, in fact yours is the first this year. However, we can all have vastly different opinions about the same subject and your thoughts have been noted. We hope that you will come back to see us again very soon. Our returning customers are so important to us. Pat Guest Relations Manager

On arriving we were made to feel so welcome by Denyse Gummow one of the managers. She showed us to our brand new luxury three bedroom caravan. 1st class. It was warm and welcoming. The beds were so comfortable. The club house was lovely with comfortable chairs and sofas.

It was great. We had a lovely time on the site, the accommodation was clean and tidy, and the entertainment in the clubhouse was top notch. Matt and Phoebe were great as hosts and the games ie: Bingo, play your cards right, and kareoke were very entertaining.

Hello Lady Luck Yes, you can park by the van, although the question "Are the spaces fairly big" is a little worrying. I hope you have nothing bigger than an SUV. If you have give the park a ring the day before you come. Pat Guest Relations Manager

0 Votes Hello Nat I love reading the answers some of our guests give on these open questions, but you need to be careful who you believe. Andy is quite correct - the lodge is the only one with decking. "GJE" is nearly there in that it is a beautiful place and you won't be disappointed. Some changes are being made to the park over the winter months which may or may not include decking - feasibility studies are being made. We won't actually know the answers until February or March.

"gold caravans with the sea views"
"Value/budget accommodation is a little tired but you get what you pay for! Splash out for a gold or platinum van, you won't regret it!"
"Its hard not ti choose a good room really as most rooms face the sea."
"Caravan 9 (value caravan) has beautiful views of Wales and is close to the clubhouse"
"Caravans 130-136 have the best views and are the quietest, those near the clubhouse have the best mobile phone signal/internet connection."
