we stayed here in our caravan in a powered site with ensuite. Owners David and Julie were great hosts taking their time to show us around and giving us a look at the bunker units. Fantastic! We found it a terrific place to visit and would not hesitate to recommend to family and freinds.

Passing through Miles, we stayed one night and totally enjoyed it. There is plenty to see and the staff are very friendly. The kitchen and facilities are great. The history of the site is worth looking into. Will return.

We had heard of the conversion of the bunkers to cabins and thought it would be an interesting stop over. Very disappointed to find what could have been an amazing space in the bunker, over stuffed with doilies, 70's prints, fake flowers, claustrophobic partitioning of the space a wierd tiled floor,and over sized armchairs draped in old towels. We had... More

The park is very quite and has a number of odd aspects such as a Vicker's Viscount plane, WWII underground bomb storage bunkers converted to accommodation units and old railway carriages also converted...

This place is really good, assortment of accomodation available, full of history with war bunkers, can not believe the full size plane which is there, owners turning it into accomodation, will be fantastic. A place to see, owners Julie and David are great hosts.
