I stayed at Primrose Valley for a mid-week break in June with my husband and two small children. Check in was quite a wait as we'd upgraded to a superior plus caravan and had to wait for one to be available. Was not a very good start to the holiday, but when we finally got into the caravan we were very impressed to see that it was brand new. We had no complaints at all about the accomodation, we had everything we needed and it was very clean.
It was quite a large holiday park, had a nice park for the children to play, two indoor swimming pools, arcades, fairground, two clubs and a pub/resturant. The splash pool was a bit on the cold side so preferred the other pool, the arcades were what you would expect from a Haven site but alot bigger, we never went to the fairground. The clubs were hard work with two little ones to look after! Now my youngest is walking and wanting to dance it was hard keeping track on the two of them in a busy club with one wanting to dance and the other doing a runner, and my other half at our table towards the back of the club! There seemed to be an issue of people taking others tables aswell, we saw one woman park her buggy by a table, took the half drunken drinks and coats off the seats and park herself there for the night! So when the "occupants" came back to their table a full blown arguement proceeded! The pub was the best night out when we had a meal and the kids coloured and played with a friend they met in there.
Our days were spent visiting the local sites like Scarborough, Whitby, Robin Hood Bay, the Moors and Goathland. It's such a lovely part of the country with some great places you must see. So we really did enjoy our break, although I have come to the realisation that Haven sites are not suitable for us anymore. As we always use them as a base to sightsee, my memories of each park seem to blend into each other! They are very nice for people with older children who like to get involved with what's going on in the entertainment, but not for families with toddlers.
