Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Maybe because we had a dog friendly cabin that made it not as nice, being dog friendly was really good, but the cabin had a lot to be desired, very small, cramped, tv remote didn't work well, the plug for kettle was behind the cooker and hard to reach and the vinyl couch was terrible. First time in a dog friendly caravan park so I can't compare but did think it would have been a bit nicer and possibly can with a little updating, the grounds were fine as the staff were nice and enjoyed our little deck for people watching.
