Rated by Peter Taylor on 2nd September 2019

Lovely place to stay, only 10 mins walk to the beach. Main amenities excellent.

Rated by Moira Woodward on 29th June 2019

It was our first visit to this park,we had booked a dog friendly caravan,,the staff at reception were very friendly and helpful,the caravan was first class, everything you needed was there for you,the only thing l thought that could be improved to make our stay more enjoyable was if we could have taken our small dog into the clubhouse, it was outside in the garden only,which is fine weather permitting, so because of this we didn't use the facilities it had to offer,we went somewhere else.

Rated by Steve Hodgson on 12th April 2019

Nice beach but watch you pay immediately you enter the car park or you will get a parking ticket.

Rated by Vinicios de Moura on 6th September 2018
