Booked a 4 day break through The Sun Holiday scheme with my 2 young children and had paid extra for a 'luxury plus' caravan. On arrival we were dealt with quickly and efficiently by friendly staff but that unfortunately where the good bits ended. Our caravan was set in a large block (pine ridge) and very close together it looked quite small and very dirty on the outside the windows were absolutely filthy. Inside the cleanliness was too bad but the furniture etc were very dated and had seen... (read more)

Just been was also in Eskdale like another reviewer and indeed it is far from the main events but not to far for it to be a bother. The area around Filey consists of filey beach (winner of cleanest beach 2010) and it was very clean. Scarborough which is just full of everything and anything, bridlington which is just a seaside mecca. Onsite the their are manay activities most at cost. there restuarant was good, and general clean level. (read more)

My 11 year old daughter,her friend,my father and myself recently returned from visiting Primrose Valley where we had a fantastic holiday and would definately like to go back to. We stayed in a 3 bedroom superior caravan where the rooms were clean, although you had to pay extra to get your beds made upon arrival. A small downside to the caravan was that the rooms were fairly small and it didn't have much space for our clothes. The site itself is huge and contained 4 pools, one was a big pool... (read more)

My husband and our two children (age 3 and 15 mths) have just returned from Primrose Valley staying for 5 days (19th - 23rd Oct). I was rather anxious about the accommodation and its cleanliness (having read certain reviews on here and other sites) as we only booked standard. However, I need not have worried as it surpassed our expectations! It was a bright, spotlessly clean, spacious and modern 3 bedroom caravan with all the amenities you could wish for - Perfect for us!

We have just returned from a break at Primrose Valley haven park and were all very diappointed. We paid around £300 for a 3 night break. Everthing on the site was overpriced and there didn't seem to be any activities that were included in the holiday price, other than the small swimming pools which only made money on the lockers.

Great holiday at Haven Holidays, Primrose Valley, caravan modern, clean and spacious. Even though the park was busy it is so large you didn't feel crowded except at night in the Jesters entertainment room where you had to be in early to get seats at the front near the stage. All the facilities were great and my 3 & 9 year old had loads to do with the pools being their favourites. The on-site shop was not as pricey as I thought for bread/milk etc and were similiar to your corner shop... (read more)

Plenty to do. The funfair is great, and there are LOADS of activities to choose from (ie. rockclimbing, archery, waterjets). The first time we went we got an amazing caravan, but this time we got a bit of a shabby one. We asked for another one, but it was just as bad. Most of the machines in funworks were broke. It's great here. It's probably more for toddlers because the shows are mostly kiddie stuff... BUT I LOVED IT... (read more)

We have been going to PV for many years, and although we still love the place we feel it has lost some of its personal touch, and become expensive in some areas ie fish and chips at five pounds ninety five, when you can go to nearby Filey and get quality for just over four pounds.
On arrival this year we went into Jesters for a drink and were greeted by someone who we think needed a personality transplant, surely bar... (read more)
