Fabulous, amazing accommodation and friendly, helpful staff throughout the complex, we return year after year and will continues to do so. This was a £9.50 Sun newspaper holiday, with no upgrade! Love Southerness.

This was the first time I have been to a 'holiday park' and booked it as we could take the dogs and there was an indoor Swimming pool for the kids. To be fair my kids liked it my Husband and I were counting the hours until checkout...we booked through Hoseasons and it certainly didn't live up to the brochure...

Just back from Southerness and have to say it was fantastic. The staff were first class, caravan amazing, spacious, very clean and modern and the facilities were excellent. This was our first time here and absolutely, definitely won't be our last.... can't wait to plan our next family get together😊
