Two weeks wasn't long enough!

We have just returned from two weeks at this incredible camp site. It is probably easy to start the review at the start of our holiday. We arrived and checked in at the reception where we were met by very friendly organised and knowledgeable staff who checked us in efficiently and speedily. We were then directed to Dave (really nice bloke) who guided us to our pitch and gave us a run down of the site.

The pitch was, as all the pitches are a great size and incredibly well kept and maintained. The toilet blocks are immaculate and have brilliant family rooms available. There are great little touches in the shower block that make life that little bit easier. Plenty of shelves for all your clothes and toiletries as well as a stool and showers set just at the right temperature.

On most nights there is different high quality food available on site ranging from stone baked pizzas to fish and chips and a sea food van. We found this food excellent and good value for money.

There is a shop on site that sells delicious fresh bread and pastries each morning and also is well stocked and has everything that you need at reasonable prices.

There are lots of nice touches throughout the site that have clearly been well thought out. These range from hand sanitizer at the chemical disposal to a herb garden that you can help yourself to.

All the staff are incredibly friendly and are all really keen to help and offer advice on the area.

The play ground and the fishing lake are excellent as is a nice stroll through the dog walking area towards Mortehoe.

We are planning to go back again next year and can not wait.

Positives: everything about the site.

Negatives: 2 weeks wasn't long enough.

Many thanks Christine and all the team for a brilliant holiday on your beautiful site.

Phil and Katy.

Stayed on this park in June, what a delight!!! Lovely staff, friendly, helpful and nothing too much trouble. Andy is a gem, take away is mainly home made food and excellent value as well as being delicious. Hygiene is first class.

The site itself was unbelievable. Spotlessly clean, fantastic shower block, very well organised.

Lake was an instant hit, everything was spot on. Been to other sites near to home but nothing compares to this. Loved it so much we are going back with our grandson in August. Very highly recommended - go here and you won't want to go anywhere else. Even the dog wants to go back, he loved the 15 acre dog walk - never had it so good.
