My partner and I come to the park on a £9.50pp Sun holidays weekend. I chose this place based on previous reviews and the location. Upon arrival, we were greeted by a lovely lady called Imogen who was helpful, prompt, and professional. In fact, all staff that we met throughout the weekend were consistently professional. The caravan that we stayed... More

The camp is in a lovely setting and well maintained, all the staff we met were excellent. Upgraded to a Sandpiper, 10 Dale, bed was really comfortable and the caravan was very well equipped indeed. A seating area and a little garden at the side and parking next to the van on hard standing. Only let down is the roads... More

This is a fab place - and we will be back., We wanted a last minute holiday in the UK, ideally in the west country for the last week of the school holidays for two adults, an 8 and 9 year old and where dogs were allowed, but it seemed there were few if any holiday cottages available. So we... More

A fantastic park with very clean caravans and well kept grounds. Good Nisa shop, fab pub and entertainment area; especially for children. The only thing I must point out is that there's no mobile signal and so mobiles only works off when connected to the holiday site's WiFi. It has a great Seaview and shore.

what a surprise to find such a lovely caravan site. It was a clean site with plenty of places to visit nearby we walked a lot over to bigbury sands. you do need a car to travel but watch the narrow country lanes. all in all I would recommend this place to everyone and will certainly visit again.

So where to begin. Being from the area I believe Challaborough is something every child should experience. In the 1970s every summer my Dad would drive a post office transit van packed full of all of us, luggage the lot and I don't remember the road being that narrow. Trust me we do have very very narrow lanes in this... More

We stayed here on a "sun holiday" , using it as a base to walk some if the coastal path . We were a little disappointed with the caravan we were allocated but go along with the "get what you pay for " attitude . However this caravan absolutely stank of cigarettes and no amount of opening of window would... More

We stayed for 7 nights after booking a heron caravan. Upon arrival we were faced with a booking miles away from the facilities. We did ask for a caravan closer as we had a 3 year old with us and it would have been difficult for her to get to and from. There was nothing available. When we got to... More

Stayed for a long weekend in August to visit friends in Plymouth. Nice location, overlooks beach. Quite tricky lanes to reach it, if you are not a confident driver on Devon lanes it will be a bit of a pain to get to. We had a lovely new caravan on Hilltop, nice view, if a little too distant of the... More

We stayed here for 4nts in August, the resort is lovely with great access to the beach. We took our dog with us so spent most our time on Bigbury's beach as dogs aren't allowed on Challabough's. The beach was brilliant excellent for kids ours spent most their timing crabbing in the rocks and body boarding in the sea. Our... More
