As with other reviewers, we were a bit worried about where we had booked through the Sun newspaper system, having read some horrific reviews. I think you have to relate what you get with what you pay. The accommodation was basic and dated but acceptably clean. Its position in the woodland was quiet. We wanted a base for touring the area and it served its purpose. If you want to have all your holiday on site, I can imagine it might not suit everybody.
The staff throughout were helpful and enthusiastic. For the children, the 'stripeys' were much more enthusiastic than their counterparts on other better known resorts we have visited. The bar area was well laid out but we accept that it is difficult to operate nightly entertainment when there are only a few adults and a couple of kids. Given the lack of singing and comic ability of the inhouse entertainment, the site might be better just leaving the bar as a place for a drink when there are no guest entertainers appearing, outside of school holidays.
p.s. - Is the smell of bleach mentioned by several others a mandatory feature to give the impression that serious cleaning has been performed?
