  • Country Park is a great place to go for a nice leisurely walk. On a nice clear day the cafe is a great stop to sit outside and enjoy a coffee while admiring the views out to sea. Cafe is reasonably priced also. The play park areas are great for kids young and old(er) and on a nice day have giant jenga, connect 4, and draughts out for kids to play.
  • Country park is lovely, long walks required to pack it all in. Caravan park is quiet and well maintained. Excellent play park facilities!
  • Brilliant place to bring your kids for he day. It has a very good park and has loads of activities including mini golf and trampolines. There is also a big walk up in the hills.
  • We camped for two nights & thoroughly enjoyed it. Good facilities & nice views from the tent area. When you camp you also get a car park pass for the park which is a nice touch.
  • Fantastic play park for kids and more activities open in summer.
