Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great campsite, just back from a weekend with 2 families, facilities are great - toilet block was spotless, 2 min walk from a gorgeous beach, views of the mountains, water and electric available on the tent pitch. We were lucky with the weather thankfully so the ground wasn't too wet, big playground on site and another playground down at the beach for the kids. Pitches are a great size too.

We stayed the June Bank Holiday weekend...5 families with children between the ages of 1-12. The facilities are excellent. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The 5 caravans we hired were spotless and everything we needed had been provided. The site was a 5 minute walk from the beach. We would highly recommend this caravan park.

Chestnutt holiday park is extremely well run. Spotlessly clean and a beautiful place all round. Hard grass pitch with concrete area for awning. Well levelled and easy set up. Water and EHC hook up. A brilliant gym can be used for £5 for the hour, booked at reception. The area is beautiful but be mindful the beach is mostly stones. RNLI are stationed at beach for safe swimming area.
Staff at Chestnutt were attentive and welcoming.

I paid a visit to this "holiday park" in early August 2023. It is a very big site, with mobile homes on one side of the road and tents/caravans etc on the other. The main area is well equipped with a shop, cafe and take away. The staff in reception were very nice and helpful.
Across the road is where the tents and majority of RV's and caravans are parked, there is a small toilet and shower block but no campers kitchen. There is a large field to accommodate tents but not sufficient facilities (campers kitchen/fridge/tv room, covered area), compared to a lot of other sites. We arrived on a Friday and had planned to leave on the Monday but left a day early due to the fact that everything shuts on the site and locally on Sundays. I understand there are local laws regarding Sundays but found it strange that the onsite shop, cafe and take away also closed. Another issue is the fact that the nearest restaurant/pub/petrol station is 4-5 miles away. Besides the holiday park, there is nothing for miles, which was unfortunate, but not the fault of Chestnutt.

Worst camping trip ever. I would not recommend this campsite. The area was completely flooded my kids and I spent all night trying to keep water out of our tent. I could not get in contact with anyone on the site and NO security on site. Although i was told there was an emergency number printed on a door somewhere in the rain at 3am i could not find any emergency number and certainly was not given one when we arrived. The gates are locked at 11:30pm so no way to leave the park. We were wet, cold and scared. If we had had a serious emergency im not sure what we would have done. It was just myself and my 3 young daughters so it really was awful. Everything we had was soaked,although the park staff gave us dry towles for showers in the morning this in no way made up for allowing tents to be pitched in an area that floods so badly. They calmed this area never flooded before but honestly i find it extremely hard to believe. They 'kindly' refunded one of 2 nights pitch fees but that certainly doesnt make up for the sleepless nights my daughters have suffered since waking up crying thinking theres water all around them again. Im still furious

We are as disappointed as you and your daughters that your stay with us was not enjoyable. Unfortunately on your second night the storm forecasted, which your tent could not withstand, came in ferociously and was accompanied by torrential rain that no ground could deal with. Regarding security barriers which we have had for many years, there is an emergency number displayed clearly at the barrier. On request it is always opened for emergencies and at no time is anyone unable to exit. We hope your next camping trip has more favourable weather.

Very well kept caravan site suitable for tourers. The chip van beside 'the cabin' is well worth a visit. Best chips I've ever had from a chippy! very friendly owner who can't do enough for you. If you're staying here get a takeaway.

A lovely caravan park, with clean toilets and shower facilities. A good play park, football pitch and activities for children. Lovely sea and mountain views , with a great restaurant and carry out The Galley just across the road and a great ice cream shop The Parlour just next to the park. A path to walk along the sea front from caravan park. Would definitely stay again and we also had great weather this week.

Really disappointed with how the site is managed. From being hung up on twice by the owner and being spoke to like I was a second class citizen. Not happy with their customer service. We use our caravan every weekend and spend money in the shop and cafe and that's the thanks you get. Disappointing!!!

Staff are extremely rude, unprofessional and unhelpful in everyway! I was recently turned down from staying on the campsite with a group of friends on the morning we were due to arrive because it was the companies 'policy' not to allow groups of young people (we are all 18) to stay incase they made noise near a family. This is a classic case of tarring everyone with the one brush as older people are just as likely to make noise as younger people. The company were unable to give an exact definition of their policy towards the age of guests and became aggressive on the phone before hanging up. As we all live locally we often would spend summers out at Cranfield using the shop and restaurant facilities however I can say after this we will not be there again!
