It's been a few years since we've had time to take a short break but our last trip to Littlesea made it a sure choice when we wanted a midweek break in July 2014.
A few site changes, most notably for us in a tourer was their having squeezed in more basic pitches into areas that have previously been kick about/ play areas. These pitches are a little tight and the loss of the amenity area leaves a lot less space for sporting activities or dog walking on a site that is advertised as a child/pet friendly site.
Another notable change is the nature walks along the edge of the cliffs which would be much improved by some grounds maintenance of the narrow footpaths. We know it's always a difficult choice when trying to preserve the ecology of the local flora and fauna but pathways not so overgrown with bramble and thorns makes the appreciation of nature a bit more enjoyable and doesn't necessarily mean irreparable damage to Mother Nature.
These changes aside, we enjoyed our short stay and have already planned a return longer trip in September.
The views across the Chisel Bank cove, especially the glorious sunsets, makes this a wonderful site for short breaks or as a base for longer UK based holidays.
For tents or tourers some of the basic pitches are a little small although the electric and hard standing pitches are a lot larger.
As part of the Haven group, this site offers a whole host of amenities, mainly for children, which makes it such a pity that the campsite for tents and tourers is situated so far away from them on the edge of the holiday complex.
Overall, a very good rating would have been improved if some of the camps amenities were less centred on the static site and more done for the holiday makers on the campsite.
