Stayed on a hard standing small pitch with a VW T2 camper. Perfect size for a couple with a dog. Good facilities and was a secluded quiet feel as we had a large hedge one side of pitch and one pitch next to use which had a hedge other side of that.

This holiday park is probably not instantly my style but I loved it. The location is excellent close to the sea but sheltered from the wind. The toilet and shower block are immaculate and the welcome was superb. There are only a few tent pitches so booking might be wise. We had our pitches altered due to the weather and they communicated with us before to tell us. They really care about this park and it shows. There are rules but they come with a light touch. It is just so well run and friendly.

Me and my partner stayed in the Studio Pod with Hot Tub and it was faultless. The room was superb and spotless, it had everything we needed, the bed was so comfortable, and overall a perfect room for 2 people. The hot tub and patio area was very private, and everything worked perfectly. The man at the desk was so helpful, giving us a map and drawing out the perfect routes and recommending the best places to eat and drink. The park itself was so quiet, still, calm and relaxed. 10/10.
