Stayed here for a long weekend. We booked a gold caravan which was lovely. Very clean and tidy with lovely furniture it all seemed new! Welcoming from staff on arrival was very friendly. The bar area in the evening was again excellent and looked brand new! Not too far away from Brixham town centre but far enough to enjoy peace...

Stayed in field F-caravan N, nice quiet little area with easy access to the club-house, facilities & coastal path. The caravan was clean & presentable. The clubhouse was clean & quite reasonably priced on the drinks. Didn't eat there so can't comment. All the entertainment staff were good especially Sarah who is a bit mad ( in a nice way...

We stayed in caravan B-14 for one week at the start of June. My first impressions was that it had a nice sea view from the hillside and a fun pool with flume which my son would love . The club house was quite smart inside but the outside and play area all run down and dated . The pool...

It was such a shame to read your remarks regarding your stay at our holiday park when most of our guests have a great time. The park has just short of 300 families staying each week and yours is the first poor review of 2016 - I am afraid you are on your own. It is such a shame that...

I recently spent a week here with my family and it was fantastic. The caravan was clean and modern, had games and DVDs in it. But what we liked best was the entertainment, the "Stripeys" were all good and kept my children entertained. Stripey Sarah stood out for us, my kids loved her and she was brilliant at her job...
