This was our little boys first family holiday in the UK and I have to admit it will make a lasting impression for all the right reasons. The park was clean, tidy and the staff were always friendly. Food was lovely and reasonably priced, free wi-fi was a great added bonus.
The swimming pool although we only used it once as we spent a lot of time away from the park on day trips was very clean and well maintained. All in all the park was absolutely lovely.
We had a budget chalet and didn't actually expect it to be up to much (you get what you pay for and all that) but it was actually just what we needed, somewhere to change and sleep. However I must add that my only critism is the comfort of the bed and the quality of the sofa bed, both very poor and we didn't sleep well at all on them, however I would not like this to be a negative review, just an honest one. We solved the problem ourselves by going and buying a double air bed for us to sleep on which really helped. As I said before, having paid a bargain price for the time of year I didn't expect the world from the chalet in the first place :)
The entertainment was absolutely great for my little one. he loved it, although it did get tedious and repetitive. The adult entertainment started too late but that wasn't too much of a problem for us as I was happy that my little boy was enjoying himself. We all really enjoyed the bingo and loved that the kids could get involved too.
All in all i loved our holiday and would absolutely visit again! :)
