Fantastic holiday. Check in was easy. All staff very helpful. Great facilities. Very clean. Caravan a good size, beds very comfy. It was just a little cold even with the heating on but the positives out weighed this.

I didn't get what I asked for,there was no facilities for me to mop floors or sweep, I wanted to turn the heating up on the boiler to find no knobs to do so, I had to ask for someone to supply,a better toaster than the one I got because it was filthy, I do not believe I should have to strip my bedding that should come in the deal and,who has ever heard of not removing the mattress protector in the process? My biggest problem was I asked for a double bed because of my condition,all I got was two singles in the master bedroom, (I was offered different accomodations yes but,only after us unpacking) I do however want to compliment the size of the freezer compartment it was adiquite!

The food was appalling in the restaurant . we had to send one meal back, another was overcooked and the choice for gluten free was only one meal choice of which they did not have half of the ingredients. When asking a waitress we just got a shrug of the shoulders. Accommodation was good and reception staff friendly. We would not return as the restaurant facilities were so poor.

Overall the park, facilities and staff were great. We had an amazing holiday The park was safe, free from litter and in nice green surroundings. On arrival we had to clean the caravan which was not ready by 4pm. Found a dirty sock in the bedroom and one of the bedrooms smelt of smoke. Once cleaned, the caravan was lovely and had everything we needed. Reception arranged for an air neutraliser to remove the smoke smell (this didn’t really work) The club house had lots of seating but was not very clean and every night we sat at a table that was either full of glasses or very sticky. Entertainment was excellent for younger ones but lacking for over 10s. There were other chargeable activities, which reasonably charge and We made use of the pool tables, pool and the parks other activities. Drinks and food were good value for money

The lodge that we had booked was not the same lodge in the picture. The bathroom did not smell very nice at all. I can either assume that the cleaning operative did not use a strong solution to clean the toilets as there was a smell of urine, or there was a problem with the soil stack. The bed was comfortable and the rest of the accommodation was satisfactory. The surroundings were nice and it was very quiet.

Lovely location the accommodation was really comfortable and welcoming. The staff were helpful and friendly. My onlyminor issue was there are no real disabled facilities for the indoor pool, although staff were happy to take my walking stick from me and give it back when I left buy wheelchair users will have more difficulty.

Stayed at Sandford for Christmas from the 23rd December to the 27th December. Stayed in a lovely caravan. Had Christmas dinner in the restaurant which was wonderful. The entertainment was great fun for all ages. Would definitely return and for a longer period next time.

We booked this weekend away with friends as a last minute (cheap) break. Park was kept in good condition. I would say it's a little dated however kept clean and tidy. Swimming pool was good but changing facilities and showers limited.

Pretty good value holiday. Crazy golf needs attention as it is dilapidated and let's down the site which is otherwise clean and tidy. Good location and would return .
