Perfect Holiday Hide Away

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for 4 nights during May half term with my mother and two teenage sons aged 14 and 17. What a delightful holiday hide away on a very quiet holiday park. The Chalet was very modern and so clean and tidy. Angela provided everything we needed to make our stay more comfortable. The whole booking process was very smooth and Angela answered my questions straight away. The Holiday park itself is right by the beach with its own access. If you're looking for a peaceful getaway, but close to local attractions, I would highly recommend the Park and the Chalet , 10 out of 10!

Family friendly and very peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This little chalet is so well equipped for families. It had everything you would need from games to highchairs. Lots of extras were provided and everywhere was immaculate.

We had a lovely stay despite the weather being appalling. The owner was so accommodating accepting our stay around my wife's shifts even in peak time.

The beach is lovely and a very short walk away. The site was busy when we stayed but was so quiet.

The only negative was the road leading to the site. I was worried it would send my wife into labour with all the pot holes!

If you're looking for a bit of an escape and some quality family time then I'd recommend a stay here.

Owner's Response: Hi Stephen, I'm so pleased you all enjoyed your stay in our chalet and you appreciated all the "extras" available for the family to enjoy. I can only apologise for condition of the road, it is always much worse when there has been heavy rain. Unfortunately it is an unadopted road and whilst the owners of the site make every effort to mantain it they are not legally responsible.

We had such a lovely holiday, the site and cottage were lovely, the facilities in the cottage were great with loads of games and dvds. It was very homely because of this. I really can’t praise it enough.

Beautiful chalet

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have wanted any better for our short break. Very well equipped and nicely decorated through out.

Very comfy bed and lots of storage.

Ideally located for the beach, our dogs loved it. Some great sun rises !

We visited a lot of the national trust properties ,which are near by.

Altogether a great property.

The access road can test your suspension but it didn't stop us.!
