This place was a massive disappointment. This is my third booking with Parkdean Resorts and most definitely my last. It's run down, entertainment is aweful, restaurant (no words), accommodation is shockingly bad (booked the new caravan on site) and reception staff have the worst attitude...More

Challaborough Bay is a small, quiet holiday park just a few minutes away from a safe and clean beach with RNLI coast guards during the summer months. It is easy to find your way around the park. Staff were helpful and well-mannered and quickly responded...More

We stayed at the holiday park with our children. The fact that the site is right next to the beach was a real bonus for the children even though they were teenagers. There was plenty of things for them to do. They enjoyed body boarding...More

Borrowed a friend's caravan. The site is by the sea and has lovely views of fields. Some caravans have a view of the sea. The site is well kept and the staff are friendly. Lost one mark as you have to pay for a card...More

I booked this without researching it, so my own fault. For us, it was not value for money and really not as expected. If the fab beach at Bigbury wasn't so close by, we would have left. The long tight single track drive to the...More
