We stayed here for a week with Canvas Holidays over the half term and had a fantastic time! The site is a good size with lots of plots privately owned which meant the site was well kept and tidy. The accommodation with Canvas was scattered all around the site along with a couple of other operators. The site is mainly sandy but has lots of shade which was nice as it was quite warm. Our accommodation was great we had 2 beds and it was clean and modern with plenty of blankets and pillows. There is a small shop onsite but the opening hours seemed a little erratic (perhaps due to the fact the site was quite quiet as it had only been open a couple of weeks), I never used it as there was a great bakery and a supermarket 5 minutes walk down the road. The supermarket had a good selection, but was more expensive than the Hyper U a drive 10 minute drive away. The restaurant/takeaway and bar offer a good selection of pizzas, burgers, chips and some fantastic mussels and chips (the curry ones were particularly good and the portion was large) and there was a large screen for Euro 2012, the pool area was great, there are essentially 2 one unheated is shallow for children at one end and goes under the bridge to a depth of 1.6m, there are also slides with seperate pools at the bottom, the second pool is heated and has water jets, built in sunloungers with bubble jets, and seating areas. There were lots of loungers, parasols and chairs but I imagine in high season it is pretty packed.The beach (which is fantastic) is walkable but be used the car as we had buckets and spades nets and towels, but there is a car park with lots of space and toilets. The Canvas reception was easy to find on arrival and the staff were all really welcoming and friendly. The site is a Canvas Family extra so there was plenty to do for everyone and activities you could do as a family. The kids club couriers were great and made for a fun time, some of the activities on offer were snorkelling, water walkers, raft building, mad scientist, space adventure, family olympics, sweetie bingo and a chocolate party (warning! put your kids in clothes you don't mind getting messy for this as they paint one another with it!). If you like to cycle there are plenty of routes making lots of places really accesible. All in all a fantastic time had by all and we will be going back!
