We stayed in a Silver Bungalow, 2 bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, living area, very clean inside, fully equipped with everything you need. There were the 2 of us and our dog. The accommodation was set in amongst trees, picnic bench outside our door on our patio....

Really wish I had read the reviews on here before booking. Booked a sun holiday-paid total of £70 for 2 people for four nights. We have booked the sun holidays before and always found the standard of accommodation great for the price. Unfortunately not this time. We were given cabin number 85 (like the reviewer a few down from this...

Obviously, poor reviews are a serious matter to a successful business such as ours and need to be investigated at the highest level. Even though we have the satisfaction of knowing that last year well over 50,000 families enjoyed a John Fowler Holiday at our 14 holiday parks, occasionally we let a customer down and it is imperative that we...

We came here last year and had such a brilliant time we had to come back. Staff are excellent, so friendly and kind. The price was fantastic for what we got, we were so impressed. The bungalow was spotless and the bathroom immaculate. I had so much fun, well done!!!!!

We had a bungalow booked via the Sun holidays, it was modern, very clean and everything we needed. We would stay again. However, some drawbacks being : the reservation was made about 6 or 7 months in advance and we had a letter requesting payment for passes and an upgrade immediately the booking was made. After a phone call this...

This holiday village to be honest is absolutely amazing. You are actually in the woods. 🌳🌲 We booked through the sun newspaper £9.50 holidays so was a little bit apprehensive as to what the park would be like. We were booked on a bronze package and were thinking to upgrade but am actually really glad we didn't. It was like...

Staff were really friendly. The clubhouse entertainment was brilliant even for beginning of march. Shazam from the stripey crew & all the stripeys made a top effort to get all involved in the evening activities. 😊well happy with our weekend away. The pool was a tad cold for the little ones.
