Ideal for dog owners as you only have to step out of your front door to give them a good run! The house is fairly well-equipped but a lack of wi-fi combined with a poor phone signal was a disappointment. The back garden is VERY small but has a BBQ and table and chairs. It is very secure.All-in-all though a good property at a fair price. We will almost certainly return.

We thought we paid really cheap so wasn't expecting much but we were so shocked at how lovely and local everything was! The caravan has everything you could possibly need and more! It was spotless and very cosy. We spent quite a lot inside the caravan and r really felt like we are at home. It was great, cannot praise it enough. It has to be one of the best caravans we stayed in. We ate out only once and the rest of the time we stayed in and cooked! I just loved it, it had all the equipment you nees to make a nice family feast! We have a toddler so we wanted to be near everything as we dropped the buggy and again the location surprised us nicely! There are shops very near by! We took long strolls by the beach and loved every minute of it! The indoor pool was amazing, what better way to entertain the kids! The playground and the park was very nicely looked after. We had a really enjoyable time and can't wait to return back in June! Highly recommend, such good value for money!
