What our guests have to say

Weekend Camping Getaway

We were booked for a 3 day weekend... It was fabulous, my new favourite site. People friendly, plenty of space for us as a family to play (basketball net, volleyball sand court, kids play area, pool, football nets, etc) it was great. Thank you.. we will definitely be back.

Definitely recommend

The bathrooms are the cleanest bathrooms I have ever seen at a campsite/caravan park. The park was good, the campsite was not to loud in the night. Definitely recommend going here.

Loved Every Moment

Would highly recommend if looking for a place to go for a quiet relaxing break. The outside pool and park are great extras to keep the kids entertained. We loved every moment and found it very relaxing. The staff were friendly and helpful and the toilets we always kept clean.

Unfortunately the Retreat Bar and Gym at Merley Court also remain closed until further notice. You can still get away and enjoy the stunning open spaces, miles of beaches and scenic woodlands on one of our 'Shorefield Getaways'.

Face coverings must be worn AT ALL TIMES when entering or walking through any of our facilities. You may remove your face mask once seated at your table within our bars and restaurants, however you must replace your face mask when leaving your table at any time. We also request that all guests wear a face covering when visiting our swimming pool facilities and only remove this when entering the pool area. Children under 11 years of age and those with health conditions or other impairment are exempt from wearing face coverings as stated by the Government.

We will keep you updated if the Government make any announcements that allow us to open our remaining facilities sooner.

What is included in the pitch price?

At Shorefield Holidays we have a simplified pricing structure for touring and camping. Pitch price includes up to six people; one car; one tent, caravan or motorhome with awning and all the leisure and entertainment facilities at any of our parks. There are additional charges for pets, extra cars, pup tents and gazebos. We do not charge extra for the unlimited hot water in the showers.

Please note that we do not allow more than one tent or tourer on each pitch. You will need to book one pitch for each tent, caravan or motorhome.

What is “electric hook-up”?

An electric hook-up allows access to electricity on a serviced pitch. It is a specialist unit available from most reputable camping and caravan outlets for around £50 – £70 and is not a standard domestic extension lead. The voltage at our parks is generally 16 amp on hardstanding pitches and 10 amp on grass.

Are your holiday parks pet friendly?

Yes, all of our parks are pet friendly and welcome well behaved pets. Just add your pet(s) to your booking when you search. We do request that dogs are kept on a lead at all times whilst on the park.
