Seashore Holiday Park - Haven
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 May 2014

We have just returned from a 4 night stay at Seashore Holiday Park.
Before we went we decided to up grade and very pleased we did. We upgraded to a Prestige and was allocated Caravan Clipper 8.
First impressions was very good. 3 bedroom caravan, 2 twins & 1 Double. En suite shower room with toilet, Separate Toilet room. Living area with Kitchen table & Chairs.
Great Caravan and very clean, 8 of everything in caravan, Plates, cups etc. check in at 2 pm.
5 minute walk to reception & show bar & 15 minute to bar & swimming pool. Show bar very big with lots of different entertainment. Amusements to keep kids happy. Burger king and papa john Pizza on site. Bar very good selling lots of food. Live sports shown on TV.
On site hire center and Spar shop. Spar shop very reasonable prices.
The area you are around 1 - 1.5 miles from the Britannia Pier. If you don't fancy driving you can catch the 1/2 hourly train. Not Cheap. £2 for adults & £1.5 for children any age. I suggest if there are more than 2 of you get a Taxi as it is cheaper. £5.20 to Britannia Pier. Also problem with train is if they aren't very busy then they just stop running with no warning.
Went to Dog racing on Wednesday. Very good night £14.50 each including entrance and meal. great night.
Great Yarmouth in general is not too bad. Seems run down in places and no doubt affected by the recession like every where else. Sad to see the long bar has gone. Market day Wednesday & Saturday. Many nice pubs and restaurants in the town.
Will definately come back to seashore. One of the best parks i have been to.

Room Tip: Get a Prestige or above

Hi Philpeg1969
Thank you for the excellent 5* review of our park here at Seashore!
The prestige accommodation that you upgraded to on arrival is one of our highest grades and the area clipper is a perfect location being close to the shop and the main entrance.
Denise Latter our Accommodation Manager is thrilled that your holiday home was found to be very clean with all inventories provided. The team work to a high standard in preparation for our Guests arrivals and appreciate all feedback.
As you have mentioned, there is lots for families to enjoy with a variety of entertainment along with the arcade on park. Great Yarmouth itself has lots to offer with great days out and some fantastic restaurants. Our reception team supply information regarding restaurants and days out and recommend speaking to the team as they have some great information.
The Land train that operates from the main entrance is an external company who I will certainly contact regarding the arrival times. We have been previously informed that anytime the train is not running, a notice board will be placed at the main entrance of the park.
It seems the location you were allocated was ideal and I recommend to contact us direct at the Park as I will be able to add any requests you may have. We do not guarantee location although we certainly aim to meet our Guests requests to our best ability.
Thanks again for taking the time to review our park and I look forward to welcoming yourself and your family back in the future.
Kind Regards
Kirsty Smith
Guest Relations Manager.

Nice park near all you will for adults or the kids. There is even a road train to take you to down town Great Yarmouth just 3 miles away. Direct access to the beach. Could do with a new look to the out side of the main complex., but once your in it's all good. Could do with a coffee shop, and a curry house but your not far away from all that any way. Kids evening entertainment .goes on to late.Would be nicer with some more adult only time.

Hello Stephen H

Thank you for taking the time to review Seashore Holiday Park.

I am happy to read you enjoyed the location, being so close to Great Yarmouth and you were able to take advantage of the local land train making the journey into Great Yarmouth more exciting.

Thank you for your feedback regarding the outside of the main complex. I will be sure to pass this onto our General Manager, Nathan Race, who will take this into consideration when planning our winter projects.

I would like to advise the Spar shop now has a Costa Coffee facility and an outdoor seating area. Alternatively you can visit our Mash and Barrel who could have accommodated your need for both coffee and curry.

I am sorry to read the entertainment didn’t meet your expectations. Due to us being a family park it can be very difficult to provide adult entertainment and keep the children entertained. Our guide is set by our head office, however I will let our Entertainment Manager, Michelle Burns, aware of your comments so this can be looked into when creating our next guide.

If you have any more suggestions please do not hesitate to contact us here at Seashore.

Love Great Yarmouth and Seashore Holiday Park, had an amazing holiday there. The staff are great, the restaurant was good and the location is ideal for those who want to experience Great Yarmouth and be a stones throw away from the beach. The arcade was fun, only went swimming once which was good, but didn't try any of the other activities like Rock Climbing etc. The actual caravan was clean and roomy, the only thing was there was an issue with the TV and the remote which eventually got sorted. Would definitely recommend and love to visit the place again.

visited from 21-25/4/2014. upon arrival, it was clear to see this was a well maintained clean park. check in was easy, with lots of knowledgeable welcoming staff at hand. we travelled with friends/family, and were located next door to each other. sadly our caravan didnt meet expectations, so a phone call and a visit back to reception followed. a lady named kirsty dealt with the matter in the fastest profesional manner. this turned an unhappy situation happy very fast. (thank you kirsty, i have emailed haven direct for your fantastic attitude and approach to the problem we had). the second caravan we were given was amazing. nicest i have stayed in in 15+ visits to haven.
The park is lovely, kids had plenty to choose from each day to do, and was very relaxing no matter where you were on site, the staff obviously had pride in their jobs there, with all of them helpful and happy. location was also fantastic to explore great yarmouths attractions and the vast amount of beaches.
to sum up this site... it is first class. one of my favourite of the several haven sites ive visited. i will definately be returning for a longer stay. well done seashore team

Hi anthonyq10

Thank you for the fabulous feedback received, I am overjoyed to hear you found our site first class!
Let me start by apologising that the first accommodation issued to you did not meet your expectations. Our Guest’s satisfaction and enjoyment is paramount to us and this is certainly expected to be achieved on arrival.
The team here at Seashore Holiday Park pride themselves on making our guests and owners welcome, receiving a home from home experience. We have seen considerable improvements throughout the park this year and the response we have received is fantastic.

I am overwhelmed with my personal mention which is appreciated very much! It’s great to be made aware the situation on arrival was dealt with adequately and that you were to continue enjoying your Holiday. We love to receive all feedback and to read such fantastic comments is a great boost for our team.

If I can assist with future bookings it will be my pleasure to offer a personal interest and look forward to yourself and your family returning to our Park.
Kind regards
Kirsty Smith
Guest Relations Manager.

We stayed here in March at the beginning of the season. The site was great and there was lots to do.
The caravan we stayed in was fantastic and we couldn't have asked for anything more. It was well equipped which makes a change to some caravans and was really clean.
The only slight complaint I would have is that the indoor pools were quite cold even the baby/toddler pool. Because of this we only went swimming once in our stay.
The site is an ideal base for the main centre of great yarmouth. They have a land train running from Seashore Park to the seafront. We didn't use this but if it was in high season we probably would have as it would have been hard to park the car.
We would definitely return to this site again.

Hi travellingbug21
Thank you for the super 5*review of our park here at Seashore!
How lovely to hear that the accommodation you stayed in was fantastic, clean and well equipped. I have made the accommodation Manager Denise Latter aware of this and she is thrilled with these comments.

I am sorry to hear you found the swimming pool temperature quite low. The recommended temperature is set correctly, although the air temperature may drop due to the main doors opening and closing and the flumes being used. This would certainly have a consequence to the temperature felt.
I am thrilled you will be returning to our park and hope you will contact me regarding future bookings; I look forward to hearing from you and to welcoming yourself and your family back.
Kind Regards
Kirsty Smith

we arrived on monday 21st April and check in was quick but if a little disorganised as there was no firm queue system, everyone walked in and went straight to a desk whilst others queued. every desk was open so they processed people quick.
we were allocated Jasmine 59 which was quite a distance from reception (1/2 mile) and was very well signposted.
caravan was very modern with open plan living room with a 4 seater and 2 seater sofa, Tv, Gas fire and pictures. very minimalistic.
kitchen and dining area, again modern and all equipment available.
double bedroom with proper fitted wardrobe and drawers, bed was quite comfy.
single room with 2 single beds, typical compact room.
bathroom quite large for a caravan and shower was consistently hot and no dips in water power.

when we arrived the caravan was unlocked and when we went to go out later the door would not lock, maintenance came out within 30 minutes and fixed door. no sooner had he gone we had no hot water, boiler saying not enough pressure. again maintenance came out within 20 minutes and put right.

the site has lots for kids to do ranging from zip wire to bouncy castle, all were unsupervised and there was a lack of adults around.
the shop was very well stocked and usual inflated prices but not unreasonable.

the camp had a burger king and Papa Johns pizza takeaway (also deliver)

we dint use the club house or kids club during our stay.

during the week we caught the dotto train from camp into great yarmouth, haven guide says it is £1.50 each journey, however this was incorrect as £2. train run every 30 minutes from 10am til 5pm and was very useful.
beach was very pebbly at top and soft sand nearer water, there are cafes dotted every mile so you can stop to refresh when needed.

great yarmouth town itself was typical seaside town, lots of little souvenir shops.

we went on pier which was mainly closed despite being 2nd week of Easter holidays (although the local children had returned to school). our child went on donkey ride and accessed the fun fair which was very good value for money, £10 for 10 tokens = 10 rides.

we went to Merrivale model village on thursday and this was by far the best day out. the village was amazing and such detail. we spent 4 hours there in the end as so much to see. a little pricy at £20 for 2 adults and a child but feel it worth every penny. you can also return during the day as they stamp your hand when you buy a ticket.

this has been our best UK holiday to date and fully intend to return next year

Room Tip: if you are not so mobile its better to request a caravan nearer to amenities as a mile walk to recep...

Hi dawnban74
Thank you for the feedback regarding your stay at Seashore Holiday Park.
I can confirm that the dates you were visiting us, we did have a sports event at the park.
The additional table was set up to make the booking in process quicker for our guests and to not create a queue in the reception. I am sorry this was not explained to you on arrival and will certainly speak to the team regarding this.
It is great to hear you found your holiday home to be modern and well equipped. I would recommend contacting the park you are visiting prior to arriving if you would like to add any requests such as location. We do not guarantee location, although we aim to meet the requests to the best of our ability.
The land train that runs from outside our park is operated by an external contractor. The time our welcome booklets went to print, we were unaware of any price increases to this service. I can confirm that the correct prices are £2.00 per adult and £1.50 per child a single journey. I will certainly contact the company and ask them to make us aware of any changes that may take place.
The zip wire and the bouncy castle are unsupervised with signs in place to make our Guests and Owners aware of this. The Owners Exclusive front desk has camera access to the bouncy castle which is observed by the reception team and regularly monitored.
The maintenance team are very efficient and as you have mentioned arrived promptly. We cannot foresee certain events taking place although we rectify at the first instance to ensure the best stay possible.
It is super that yourself and your family had fun days out around Great Yarmouth. We have lots of information regarding this and also offer discounted tickets for a number of events.
I am overjoyed that this holiday was a thoroughly enjoyable one .To be made aware this was your best UK holiday to date is fantastic and cannot wait for your return next year!

Kind Regards
Kirsty Smith
