Park Resorts - Bideford Bay
This holiday was taken during a very wet half-term in May. Bideford Bay park site is near to the village of Bucks Cross a few miles between Bideford and the famous picturesque village of Clovelly. The park is in a good location for visiting the delightful coast and villages of North Devon.
This is a large park, surrounded by trees and in a beautiful location. However, although the park is on the coast, it’s a rugged 20 to 30 minute walk to the sea. Some of the chalets and caravans do have sea views but ours unfortunately did not.
The staff were helpful and the information pack given to us on arrival was sufficient. We had been informed that bed linen was included but this was not in our caravan. However, after a phone call, it was delivered within the hour. Parking near to your caravan was difficult at times, especially if you return late in the day.
The manor house where the entertainment takes place, and which houses the café and restaurant is in an old building which frankly could do with being refurbished, it is very dated and not very comfortable for a night out .
I also found eating and drinking out at the manor house not very good value. A watery cup of hot chocolate for over £2 was too expensive and the children also complained at the price of the Slush Puppy drinks.
The indoor pool was in a beautiful location but only allowed in 25 people at any time. Families have to queue to use so the children were often disappointed on many occasions. It would be much better if there was a booking system as we certainly had difficulty accessing the pools which was one of the attractions of the site.
Ann Lloyd and her family were guests of Park Resort.
