Myself, husband and 2 young children aged 3 and 5 went on our first caravan holiday this year to hoburne Torbay. We have always gone all inclusive abroad but were shocked how expensive school holidays are which we can only do now. I researched into this as I'm used to 4/5 star all inclusive hotels.
Sainsburys is just a couple of miles away so we stocked up on drink and fancy ready meals you just put in the oven such as fish pie with baguette. We ate in at the table and it was very spacious and home from home. There was no way I was cooking on holiday and I can't stand burgers, chips and other kids screaming!
The caravan was gold with decking outside, we didn't go out onto it as weather wasn't great all week and when it was we went out. The beach is a short walk and the kids loved being in the sea in a rubber dingy, building castles and watching the train puff along. We took out pic nics. Brixham is not far to go on a bot trip and nice walks with great fish and chips.
The caravan was lovely I could live in it. Microwave was missing a nob and microwave was replaced with a new one in hours. The only fault were the beds - typical camp bed with wires sticking into my bones - I got round it by sleeping on loads of pillows!
Spammy the sea horse, larry the lobster and the turtle were a massive hit with the kids, we would eat then walk to entertainment for the kids at 6 and go back to caravan after sammy had sung his bye bye song.
The indoor pool was small with one slide and did the job for a few hours on days it rained, the soft play and arcades for the kids are great. The outside play area is great.
Would definitely go again as price was £740 gold for one week and spent £150 in sainsburys and £100 on activities including model village, zoo which was great and little bits like tram.
