“Peaceful Caravan Park”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Family holiday for four of us in July. Two 60+ adults. One twenty year old and one sixteen year old. This is a lovely, well-managed holiday park with great views of Ben Nevis. The caravans are spacious, well-appointed and beautifully clean. The site-manager was very friendly and helpful. The clothes washing facilities are excellent. I couldn't fault the place and would go back there again. It's not for those who want a rowdy night-life on site however.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review on your holiday at our park.

We are all really pleased that you had such a good time on your visit. We certainly do try our very best to give our customers as clean and well maintained accommodation as we can and we appreciate you commenting on this. We make no apology for wanting only family groups on the park. It is for visitors to appreciate the scenery and wind down along with family members.

We hope we can be of service again in the future.

Kind regards

Anne and Ian Brown

We stayed here for a week in one of the wooden lodges . It was very clean, comfortable and cosy. The kitchen had everything that we needed and the bathroom although small had a good shower and plenty of hot water. The main bedroom was comfortable and the kids bedroom was good too although the beds were just big enough for my teenage son. The reception had an excellent range of tourist information and the staff were happy to recommend trips etc. The views from the lodges are spectacular and we found it quite a good base to explore the area. There is a good fish and chip shop in Caol and it only takes 5-10 mins to drive into Fort William . We would definitely return here.

Many thanks for your review and kind comments. Please accept my apologies in not replying more quickly.

All the Staff have read your review and are very pleased that you enjoyed your holiday in your Woodbury Lodge. It is appreciated that it met with your expectations with the added bonus of the views of Ben Nevis and the surrounding mountains. We are glad that your family had a good time in Fort William and would consider returning in the future. As you correctly point out, it is a good base to travel from whilst visiting the western highlands. The secret being to do your research as some of the day trips can be very long if not planned carefully.

We hope it is not too long before you will return to Lochaber.

Best wishes

Ian, Anne and staff at Lochy Holiday Park.

Our family stayed here for 5 nights, holiday. The reception was very friendly and helpful. Lots of local information displayed, which was very useful. The pitches are quite basic grass or small hardstandings, undivided. some of which were on a slight slope. The pitches are not marked very clearly and caused confusion for new arrivals. We had booked so had a cone placed on the pitch with a label and our name. There was no motorhome service point which meant us having to carry water and waste containers about, not a big problem. The toilet and shower blocks were very good, but please can you fit shower curtains in the showers as all the clothes and towels get wet. The toilets were kept very clean. The dish wash area is inadequate for the size of the site with only 2 sinks, there was always a queue. There is a childrens play park on site which looked very good. The laundry facilities looked excellent. The site is in a stunning location on the outskirts of town, with a tremendous view of Ben Nevis, and a short walk or cycle takes you to The Caledonian Canal at Neptunes staircase. There is a cycle/walking path in to town if you turn right at Farmfoods then across the footbridge at the railway. The site had a small shop with basic needs and some caravan accessories. There is a Good Farmfoods shop 5 minutes walk or 2 minutes drive from the site and Morrisons and Lidl in town 5 minutes drive away. A bus service runs approx every 15 minutes from the bus stop at the health centre nearby the site for buses into town and elsewhere. I rated 3 star because of the very basic pitches and no shower curtains.

Thank you very much for your review on our touring park and it's facilities. My apologies for not replying much more quickly.

We are very glad that you enjoyed the facilities on offer and your comments on how clean and well maintained they were. The staff have to take credit for this and they will appreciate your plaudits. I fully accept that the pitches need work doing on them to enlarge them and make them more user friendly. We will be putting in more, larger hard standing pitches over the winter months for caravans/motorhomes. We have to be careful in our approach as the river at the bottom of the park can flood us very badly in the winter months which is one of the reasons why we cannot offer drainage or develop the bottom of the park. We will keep your comments on the shower curtains in mind although you are the first reviewer to comment on this. When we put the new cubicles in two years ago, because the doors were wider and went further back we now do not have the room for a curtain. We were worried about this but the feedback we did have on this matter from returning customers was that they preferred no curtain as they thought them unhygienic and did not like the curtain clinging to them whilst showering. I suppose we are all different in our points of view and expectations.

Warm wishes

Anne and Ian Brown

In early morning if you can watch the beauty of mountains where the clouds are dancing around it, can listen the music of river while having a cup of tea.. what else you want on your holidays? It was stunning, had a 4 night heavenly experience with high level of hygienic cottage. our family was staying in cottage no 48 with my wife and 2 small kids. it's ideal for a family like us. perfectly arranged. If I was born in Fort William definitely I could have become a poet. Thanks to the proprietors of lochy park

Stayed here with the kids for 2 nights camping and by far it joins our "we will be back list". All staff very friendly and helpful and all facilities you could ask for. All areas were very clean and well maintained to a great standard shop very well equipped with everything you would need. Many Thanks and see you again

Many thanks for your kind comments on the camping facilities and how much you enjoyed the park. Your kids certainly had a good time playing in the sandy bits down by the river - hope you managed to launder it all out when you got home! The bottom camping part is a nice,quiet part for mums and dads to let the chidren run about on.

We hope to see you and your family sometime in the future.

Warm wishes.

We arrived early to the park but were very much welcomed. Our caravan was immaculate and very well equipped! The views from the park are stunning! This park is very quiet - which is what we were after - and so relaxing! The park is a fantastic base for exploring - we went far and near (the beautiful neptunes staircase is a lovely walk from the site). We have fallen in love with Scotland and would definitely return to this site again. Thank you so much Lochy Park for a wonderful week! We didn't want to come home!

Thank you for your kind review.

I am assuming this is your fist vist to Scotland. I hope you were impressed with Fort William and the scenery it affords. We tell our our guests that you can make the holiday as expensive ( or cheap ) as you wish but the scenery and views cost nothing. You obviously had a terrific time whilst here and we hope it is not too long before you visit us again.

Kind wishes

Campbell,Anne and all at the park.

Stayed here for a short break in a caravan - the park and caravan were great - caravan nice and clean with everything we needed for a short break. The park was clean and tidy. The few staff we met during our stay were pleasant and helpful. Can't fault it and would use again if visiting the area
