booked holiday via acorn caravans, was led to believe this was the name of the park, on arrival we realized it was a private caravan through Hoburne. Caravan was clean, owner arrived day after to ask us if we were happy with everything in the caravan. Park was a bit out of the way but peaceful. We noticed on a couple of days when we returned to the caravan on days out that someone had been in the caravan and one of the days the main caravan door was unlocked!! On the day of departure, we packed the car and was in the midst of making sure the caravan was left as we found it, we had to vacate by 10am but at 9.50am someone arrived as we were finishing and proceeded to open the balcony gate, our two small dogs were harnessed ready to be put into the car, I asked her not to open the gate as my dogs could have run out and asked what she was doing, she replied to us in a manner that I didn't like, I realized she was a domestic? I reminded her that she was 10 mins early, she then sat on the caravan steps and proceeded to make a phone call, my partner was hoovering the caravan and I sat in the car and noticed a small child and an older male walking towards my car and then proceeded towards the store at the back of the caravan. This was all so intrusive and intimidating. I have never experienced such rude behaviour! We drove to the reception to hand the keys back and reported the incident to the receptionist who then advised us that it was nothing to do with them as the caravan was privately owned and we should take our complaint to the owners? We then stated that we was aware that we were to vacate at 10am and again they stated it was nothing to do with them. I was totally astonished with the way I was spoken to and replied that I would never return to the park! I will never rent via private ownership again!
