We (family of five comprising 4 adults and one child 3 years old) stayed here the week commencing 7th July. We booked a special from the Daily Mail which was heavily discounted. We thought the deal might prove to be too good to be true, but were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The site is well laid out, very neatly maintained (no litter for a start). and equipped with reasonable sized and good condition caravans. We were allocated a caravan on high ground near the site entrance, which had nice views of the Bay and Portland, but were compelled to ask for a change as we were concerned about our grandson being so close to a busy main road and main site access road. We were allocated another caravan in a secluded and safe part of the site, which was close to amenities, but sadly had no views. We had a very pleasant time at the site, which we found to be surprisingly quiet and perfect for children. Our grandson was never bored. The caravan was a little cramped (two bedrooms, one of which was very small), but comfortable enough and reasonably well equipped. We did take kitchen ware of our own to ensure we had everything we needed. We used the restaurant a number of times and found the food quality to be acceptable. We went to evening entertainment every night, and our grandson in particular thoroughly enjoyed the FunStars. The drinks available were reasonably priced. The high point of our holiday was winning tickets for a family of 5 to SeaLife. The site provides good and easy access to Weymouth town, beach and harbour (good range of eating places and scope for crabbing off the wall), where we found no difficulty in parking (works out at £1 per hour). We visited Portland Bill, which is within easy reach, although on reflection we would have taken a shorter route through the Town rather than the bypass. There are rock pools of sorts (we could not find any elsewhere) there at low tide and a very nice Café. For those who like walking and exploring, the Coast Path from Preston takes one to Redcliffe Bay, a quiet, secluded, picturesque beach, where one can swim safely and fish. The views along the coastline and across to Portland are stunning. Bowleaze Cove at Preston is easily accessible from the Caravan Park via a track and other caravan park and takes about 15 minutes at a leisurely pace Not really our cup of tea, with its rather unsightly entertainment complex. Overall, a very pleasant holiday, much enjoyed by all the family, and made the more enjoyable by the friendly, helpful staff. No photos of site provided with this review.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our small, laid-back park is on a hill - so we have some great views! And we're surrounded by coastal walks. You can head into the Dorset countryside - or stroll 15 minutes to Bowleaze Cove. We have lovely indoor and outdoor pools - so you can duck and dive whatever the weather. Or just pop to the seafront at nearby Weymouth for fish and chips and donkey rides. The park is open from March 20th to November 2. ... more less
