We have stayed in a few caravan parks but this has to be the best accomodation so far. The caravan was clean and very nicely furnished and the double bedroom was roomy and the bed was very comfortably with an en suite toilet so we had two in the van. The staff were helpful and friendly. On the down side...

Just returned from a very nice relaxing break in a lodge with a hot tub. The lodge has been recently refurbished which was nice but I do believe there are still a few things that would improve it further. We stayed in Poppy 10 and the location was very good. Our 2 bedroom lodge was very clean on arrival and...

We were actually staying at Merley Court Touring Park, one of the Shorefield Group of caravan/holiday sites, and so had a pass to use facilities at Oakdene as it is nearby and the same group. The newly opened VR ( virtual reality) room is a definite hit with my teenaged son, it uses the HTC/Steam based VIVE VR kit, and...

We came here for a 4 night stay in a superior 2 lodge, we have been to this park before but it's been a while (2009 to be precise!) we arrived just after 4pm, got the keys from reception and made our way down to Rhododendron, where the lodges are situated.

We booked with Hoseasons for a three night weekend stay and our initial thoughts on the Select Plus Caravan was that it was ok despite the twin bedrooms being on the very small side. The biggest problem however with the accommodation was the fact that the double bed in the caravan contained bed bugs and as a result we came...

Just came back from a weekend getaway, out of season so we expected it to be a bit quiet for our 4 children aged 7yrs, 5yrs, 2yrs, and 6 months.
