Booked a 4 day midweek break here on the bronze caravan booking. Was a bit worried about what the caravan was going to be like judging by other reviews on here. Generally the caravan itself was clean, well equipped with crisp white sheets and a really comfy double bed. The only concern was that the gas boiler had a open flame pilot light, as the protective plate was missing. It freaked me out a bit as it was in easy reach of the kids sticking there fingers in!!
It was the site that was the biggest let down, unless you are a fan of dangerous breeds of dogs not always on leads(our neighbours pitt bull barked incessantly!) it's probably not for you. The outdoor pool was a crumbling mess and the lifeguard also doubled up as the ice-cream seller so wasn't much use in controlling the hoards of teenagers dive bombing off the sides.
It can be a bit of a walk from the car to your caravan with all your stuff, but we were quite lucky as a lot of the vans have a view over the car-park or road.
If you like bingo and HOliday camp entertainment there's lots of it, that's a personal taste thing but we steered clear.
It is an easy walk to the beach and the nearby Co-Op is well equipped. There's a big park on the way to the beach with playground. So we spent most of our time there.
