On TripAdvisor, Maria gave the park five stars and wrote: “We had a fantastic weekend away here, really loved the place. We stayed in a Gold caravan for pets and it was very clean and tidy, no smell of other dogs at all! The restaurant here is outstanding, really delicious food and brilliant service. Clubhouse is really cosy, it feels like you're at your favourite local pub. The Robbie Williams tribute act was brilliant and hilarious. I wasn't expecting as much audience interaction as there was but that made it so much better! Lovely sea walks all round the park. Park is tidy and well maintained. Staff are lovely and friendly! We'll definitely be returning!”

Another reviewer, jollyjen15 wrote: “As a family of 4 we can't fault this place. My boys are nine and seven and we hardly saw them as they spent most of their time playing outside in the park and in the football cage. The food is gorgeous, whether it be from The Granary or the courtyard. The entertainment was good, our favourite was the George Michael tribute, although, you do need to get there early as it gets busy so you struggle to get a table.”

The park also welcomes day visitors.
