Just had a great two weeks here at Southbay caravan park. The staff were brilliant and couldn't do enough for us especially stripeys Carl, Sarah, Zoe and Katie. We did not have any kids in our party but enjoyed watching them interact with the kids as well as the adults. They all worked very hard. The only downside I would...

A quiet bank holiday weekend on the site. But really enjoyed our stay. The staff are all very friendly and eager to help. However one member of staff stands out. Stripey Sarah! What a credit to the site she is. Fantastic with the children and really put everything into making sure a good time was had by all!
