Visited family who own a holiday home here recently and can't believe the changes that have happened over the last few months since the new company took over. You can really see the potential that the park has and it is a great place to be an owner! It is peaceful and relaxing but also only a short drive into...

Beautiful area. Close to the town and an amazing beach. Staff are great and very willing to go the extra mile. Would really recommend. Great for trips with friends and the family with lots to do nearby. Will definitely be returning.

Thank you for your comments however using Trip Advisor to vent your frustrations is not the way to do it. When the holiday home was purchased, all the improvements due to take place were explained to everyone so shouldn't have been a surprise to you. I am sorry you did not enjoy the park and wish you luck in the...

Thank you, its nice to see positive comments from people. The staff have worked hard throughout the change of management to get the park of to a great start and improve the standards.

We chose Tarka, to be honest, on price. For the location for 3 adults & 2 little ones, we were looking at least twice the price for other accommodation. We booked a bronze caravan for 3 nights. We arrived late but had let the site know and when they knew we wouldn't be disturbing others on the site, they were...

We arrived just after lunch on a Tuesday in the late October half term and there was no reception open, only a number to ring, which went straight to answerphone. There was no information board about local amenities etc; and we never saw any site staff or the reception open in the two and half days we were there; so...

Great location! And that's where it stops. In serious need of a makeover. A B&B would be cheaper and cleaner. Seriously, if you have £300 to spend on 4 nights,spend it elsewhere. I wasn't expecting much as a late break away from it all but I didn't expect to have to clean the fridge on our arrival ( full of...
