Just come back from another break at John Fowler Holiday Park, the accommodation is always spotless and the entertainment team work very hard to ensure everyone has a great time. I would highly recommend it.

The walk into town is a slight trek, there is a beautiful walk down to the beach, perfect for taking dogs, also the coastal path...

We had a basic caravan for a week. Though a little dated there was lots of family lounge space, good storage, comfortable beds and all appliances in good order - in fact the fridge freezer was a very generous size. The park was well kept and the entertainment area modern. Play parks were good for toddlers and younger kids and...

Arrived after a 350 mile drive to be given the keys to our "Gold" caravan at reception. Considering our last encounter with John Fowler accomodation I was hesitant to say the least. Upon opening the door and a scout of the premises I was impressed, this had it all. Very well laid out and all you need to relax when...

Hello Aaron A single 1 star review amongst so many 5 stars certainly needs investigation. It is such a shame that you did not insist on telling the park manager or head office of your displeasure while you were there, it is always so difficult to deal with the issues after you have returned home. It is so much easier...

I have to say a fantastic all around holiday caravan was excellent, and swimming pool and play area for children is very good but the best thing that made the holiday was the entertainments staff, stripey Paul, Mattie and Billie were fantastic with our daughter and made the holiday. Seeing their persistence to make her smile and enjoy her holiday...

Taking advantage of the 'Sun' newspapers holiday breaks together with an extended family I took a two day break in one of these caravans. Very clean and spacious. My daughter had a smaller van which had a slight smell no doubt because it had not been aired throughout the winter months. The entertainments in clubhouse were thoroughly enjoyed by 7...
