Lovely friendly stsff
Caravan was very comfortable with lots of storage. A bath mat would of been helpful to prevent slips. A better description of the caravan would of been helpful as the freezer was bigger than we thought so we could of bought more frozen bits with us.
I would recommend this camp site highly, the caravans are very clean and you have the choice in the evenings to either go to the clubhouse or chill out in the more quieter pub, very good if you have a young baby. There are loads of great activities on offer for kids also with the choice of indoor and outdoor swimming pools there really is something for every one :D
