We have just had our second three-night break at Shorefield for a family get-together. On the first occasion we booked a Standard caravan which, to be honest, had seen better days. It was a bit tired, with stained carpet and seating, although quite well equipped. We did wonder if this was because we had requested a dog-friendly caravan. We also did not like the fact that there was no wash basin in the room with the toilet. However, this time we opted for a dog-friendly SelectXtra caravan which was in a different league - a much newer caravan, spotlessly clean, with shower room and an en-suite and decking. Again, it was well-equipped. We used the indoor pool which was fine, the water a good temperature. We had take-away food from the bar on the Sunday night but could not choose from the full menu as it was Father's Day and the carvery had been extended into the evening, with a couple of vegetarian options. We were not told about this at Reception when asking for a take-away menu (which they could not find anyway!) However the food (2 take-away carvery meals plus 2 veggie options) was OK and the staff in the bar and restaurant were friendly and quite obliging. We would definitely stay again in a SelectXtra caravan but think perhaps the cheaper caravans could do with being replaced. It costs quite a bit more for the newer option but however much or little someone is paying for accommodation it should be up to a certain standard these days. The Park is clean and tidy with a good atmosphere and there are good dog walks nearby. The shop is well-stocked and the staff very pleasant. Overall an enjoyable stay, more so the second time in better accommodation. Would definitely return but only if we can afford the better caravan.
