Alan Rogers Review

Tranquil, open meadows edged by mature woodland, well cared for by the Taylor family who live on site, provide a beautiful holiday setting with the nearest beach five minutes’ walk from the top gate. The original farm buildings have been converted and added to, providing an attractive covered, central area with a certain individuality of design which is very pleasing. Pitches are in five spacious areas and allow for a family meadow and a dog-free meadow (high season only). There are 180 marked pitches, 150 with 10/16A electricity, some with hardstanding and eight are fully serviced. All are on flat, terraced or gently sloping grass with flowers and flowering shrubs or edged with trees.

The impressively tiled toilet blocks are of good quality and design. In addition to the attractive kidney shaped pool and paddling pool there is now a large rectangular pool (also heated) within a walled and paved area which is excellent for sunbathing. This forms part of the central area at the heart of the site and complete with tables and chairs it is the place to enjoy family entertainment in high season. There is also a pleasant family pub and Kidsworld for children within walking distance.


Three individually designed, modern toilet blocks (one heated) provide a full range of comfortable facilities including some private cubicles. Fully equipped laundry room. Modern reception with little shop. Takeaway (May-mid Sept). Heated swimming and paddling pools (Whitsun-Sept). TV lounge. Crazy golf. Play areas (including adventure type). Eden Project tickets. WiFi on part of site (free).
