The caravan was not great quality and the floors were very, very squeaky and noisy. It wasn't as clean as I expected as there were hairs in the shower and a cigarette end in the middle of the kitchen floor.

Very quiet. We have two weeks off at May half term and consequently there were very few children other than toddlers around. Staff very helpful, not a lot to see or do without a good drive on windy roads. Sea is really an estuary so rarely in and very muddy, a mainly shingle shore. Probably more suited to those wanting...

Just arrived home from a 4 night stay at Southerness Holiday park. Caravan was lovely, clean and spacious. There was 4 adults and 3 children and we all really enjoyed the site. Pool was clean and due to going out of school holidays it wasn't too busy. Entertainment was good, arcades good but small. Our youngest child loved the duck...
