                                                                                        5 of 5

From walking in the door to a personal welcome card, to finding everything we needed and more to be catered for, everything about Andy and Lynn's home from home made us feel relaxed and welcome. I came with my three children for a short break from the usual chaos and we had a great time - walking to the lighthouse was fun and it was great being close to the aquarium. The caravan is in a great position in the site and is beautifully maintained. It is warm and cosy, the kitchen has everything you need, the beds are really comfortable and the bathroom is lovely and clean. The owners have this van as their home from home and this was apparent in the surplus of books, DVDs, Sky TV, soft furnishings, and filled cupboards - everything you need to make your stay more comfortable. Thank you so much!

The life centre was opposite, china town, Eldon square(for good food and drink, shopping) and the academy was only 5mins away. The apartment had everything we needed and the blow up was fantastic in the living room. We will definitely be back. 5* well deserved.
