I would have really loved to give this caravan park a better rating than average, but the on site facilities and lack of entertainment really got in the way!
We booked this as another of our £9.50 Sun holidays but decided to try a Parkdean instead of our usual Haven sites. The check in was really quick and our caravan was ready when we got there at 2pm rather than the 4pm check in time. The caravan we were placed in was overlooking the childrens park which was really nice and the caravan itself was clean and had central heating.
The caravan park is small with a shop, take away and small club. That's about it really! Oh and an outside pool which we knew about anyway so wasn't a big shock to us that it was closed during our holiday. We got food from the takeaway twice during our stay and had no problems with it, but the big let down for us was the evening entertainment. If you're like us and enjoy a night out when you're away then this is not the place for you. It was absolutely dire!!! Not a patch on a Haven entertainment programme. Most of the night consisted of the "funstars" making crap jokes (no one laughing!) or making absolute jokes of themselves! The kids there didn't look happy at all. And when they started singing we left! they had 2 nights of "bought in" entertainment which were better but only on for an hour and half tops!
It's a shame really as the location is perfect for the great beach and a good base to see lovely Cornwall. I would suggest an indoor pool and better evening entertainment to make this site worth visiting again.
