Just stayed in the Findhorn caravan, was great for all the family. Right on the beach. Website says free WiFi but it's not, but not a problem really as I rarely needed it. The grounds are well kept and is very clean. The swimming and softplay facilities for kids are great. My only tiny gripe was the bed sheets didn't...

Just back from a week at Southerness, where we stayed in an 8 berth Annan caravan. Caravan was large enough with three bedrooms and a pull out bed in the lounge area. Plenty of space in the living area. Central heating kept us nice and warm. The site is quite spread out and we were in Sea View area. Good...

While the caravan park is well maintained and close to the beach I found it too noisy! Dogs barking every morning from 6.30am then the grass cutting and strimming starts at 9am. Only ate once in the restaurant and that was for breakfast. The waiter was so stressed out and grumpy. How he'll cope when it's busy..... There were only...

We were surprised at the size of the caravan / mobile home and immediately felt at home and comfortable. The beds were made up beautifully, but there weren't towels, etc., However, a visit to the office fixed this slight hiccup and...
