This was my second visit to Challaborough Bay Holiday Park the last one being 4 Years ago.

Fortunately I had purchased... More

We arrived on a very windy wet day at around 9.30pm. Our journey in was horrific. For about 10 miles into the camp the roads are extremely narrow and very twisty. It is the worst roads I have ever traveled on taking us around an hour to travel that 10 miles. On arrival we thought we would look around while... More

Lovely pool..Very warm this time and looked like it had had a makeover. Bad points..caravan was all slightly damp.maybe because it's right next to stream. Food offered was worse than... More
