The first look of our studio unit was enchanting and I regret not taking a photo. So well appointed with bright colours and several quirky features. The bed was most comfortable and the proprietor very friendly.

Had a basic cabin which was perfect for what we needed. Toilets and showers a little dated but shouldn't worry if your staying in this kind of accommodation. Cheap and cheerful with a friendly face at reception eager to suggest walks/activities.

Me and my lovely wife just love the Park. We have stayed in both the units and in the tent. It's peaceful, quiet, relaxing, clean and feels like home. Mark ,Trish, Pixie (the highly trained telepathic therapy hound) and staff are doing a great job. They will go the extra mile to help or advise you. Also great is the... More

Stayed here overnight as a family of 4. Pleasant enough, but a little dated, accomodation a bit tatty in places and old fashioned, could do with a bit of investment, looked slightly better once outdoors in the sunshine. Nowhere nice to eat within walking distance in the evening.

We spent a night here in a campervan. The cabins look OK - but the facilities if you are camping are pretty dismal. There is a kitchen that is clean but has little more than that going for it. The showers and toilets are dated, cruddy, and unappealing. I don't like giving poor reviews but want to spare anyone feeling... More

We had a large group and Trish upgraded us grownups which we really appreciated. The kids had a ball. This place has all the right ingredients, and Trish was warm and looked after us. She recommended the beach and the museum, the beach was great for the kids, time didn't permit the museum. Her suggestions and photos on the wall... More

Want a winter weekend away from the snow, hustle and bustle, and selfie-snapping tourists to read a good book with a glass of wine then rent a cabin at Baylys Beach. What you don't get here is absolutely made up for by what you do get. The West Coast at its best. This is a genuine 1970s beach experience; sleepy... More

Stayed overnight in one of their bach cabins. Was nothing flash but had everything we needed and was comfortable and clean. We walked about 10 minutes down to the beach to watch an amazing sunset which was a real highlight of our trip. A very dog friendly place and I would stay there again.

Had a nice overnight stay in one of their 'bach cabins' with real blast from the past decor. Walked down to the beach and watched a stunning sunset. Little bit pricey for what you get but would happily stay again.
