We stayed for Mayday bank holiday weekend, the road is narrow in places but taken carefully and if you are confident reversing if necessary is really not a problem, we had vodafone signal almost everywhere, and H+ in caravan was fine even for youtube videos. The bay is lovely, and due to access was only used by people staying on... More

We spent a long weekend in a caravan at this site. Perfect site in a great location. One thing I would like to mention is Fryer Tuck Chip shop in Challaborough Whatever you do do not eat here the food with no exaggeration was absolutely disgusting.

OK....... Lets get the access out of the way. if you can drive the lanes should not cause you any cause for worry. The last 200 yards are single track, but just need a bit of bloomin care. Nothing to waste a good worry on. NOW the holiday. The park is in a fabulous location. Great if you like walking... More

Pretty location , decent caravan ,friendly staff. However the details of this place should come with a warning about access. I'm a former professional driver & still didn't like the road, especially the last bit with a very steep single track road with no passing points til you reach the top. Twice whilst going downhill I at this point I... More

Great Scenery for walks, rolling hills and great wildlife! NEGATIVE POINTS: Really limited to park. No small villages nearby to visit. No phone signal. Limited wi-fi to Bar area and painfully slow!

Well first of all I cannot believe all the negative reviews I have just read on here, these people clearly went to the wrong place. And in terms of the roads leading to the park, I highly doubt Parkdean can do anything about the country roads. Yes they are a bit of a nightmare in places where there is only... More
