What our guests have to say

Amazing stay!

The site is well located far enough away from the busyness of big towns and roads but only a 15 minute drive to bigger shops and places to visit. The site is immaculate grounds and toilet showers and washing up facilitates. Shop was well stocked and priced.

Great quiet site

I can't praise it enough. First impressions were of a clean tidy site. The showers and toilets were kept very clean and water was nice and warm. For younger children there's a lovely park. We did venture down to Oakdene which is a 20 minute drive to use the pool and the entertainment.

Highly recommend

Great facilities, especially the shop that stocks Calpol for kids under 6 years, which is a rare find. Play areas are also fantastic. Would love to come back when the outdoor pool is open. The passes provided to the sister site was great value for money we loved using the pool there and the arcade.

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.
