The park covers a vast area and all you can see is row upon row of caravans. I can't comment on Parkdean caravans as the one we stayed in was private. The grounds are quite well maintained with proper paths and lighting. The club house is a good size with a good amusement arcade for older children. The pool however, is very small and the water was cold. Young children are well caterered for with the kids club which seemed to be going down well. The food in the clubhouse is typical prepared off site frozen fare and not that inspiring. We had the Sunday carvery which was cold and tasteless and quite frankly was awful.
If you like chips you will love Pendine's eateries! It is difficult to find anything that is not a greasy spoon which is a shame. There are numerous chip shops, cafe's and an Indian take away. Very little available in the way of fresh seafood which is unusual given the location. We tried the Indian on our last night and ended up throwing it away as it was so bland.
The beach runs for miles but there was a lot of rubbish and jellyfish on the high tide mark. If you want quaint and cultered with good restaurants then avoid Pendine at all costs. There is also hardly any mobile phone signal in the area. To use your phone or to access the internet you will need to sit in the clubhouse where there is free wi fi.
