This is a great choice for a family holiday with many facilities aimed at children. There are several kids clubs offering activities suited to children of different ages including arts and craft sessions, sports contests and story and song time for the little ones.

There is also a great adventure playground which is a great place for them to make new friends and the amusement arcades come in handy on rainy days. While the kids are off having fun adults can enjoy a relaxing drink on Costa Coffee or a stroll along the coast.
Evening entertainment is also family friendly and may include cabaret shows and discos as well as fun and games for the little ones. There is also a bar and restaurant where you can enjoy a family meal.

Accommodation is in stylish caravans which have everything you need for a great self catering holiday and can sleep up to 8 people. The Forth Caravan is the most budget friendly model with two bedrooms and heating in the main bedroom. The Tay also has two bedrooms but is 12ft wide and has heating throughout. The Tweed is the top of the range model and is 12 ft wide with three bedrooms and central heating as well as DVD player.

Our Top Tip
