Travelling party: Group of friends

I have to say, I love this place even though the weather has limited what we have been able to do so far. This site, along with its sister site, Watergate Bay Touring Park, is very well equipped for families of the four legged kind and the small humans who bring their taller humans with them.

The standard pitch, which is what we booked with EHU, is surprisingly spacious and set towards the back of the park, with the site sloping gently from front to back. The back of the site is nearer to the coast path, across single road which is pretty busy during the day but much quieter at night. At the front of the site are the large pitches with an outlook that explains why it is named The View. When you see it, it is breath-takingly self explanatory.

The View is smaller so feels much quieter than the bigger site which is less than a 10 minute walk away, with its activity club for youngsters, an indoor heated pool, outdoor children’s park and field, an arcade, dog friendly cafe, and a great dog exercise area, comprising a big open field for off-lead games of fetch (or frisbee of course), along with a second field for a perimeter walk, with dog toilet disposal bins at both entrances. There are other bin points across the two sites, but no other dog bins we could find. Although, you have to walk along the lane to get from The View to Watergate Bay Touring Park, and you pass a Caravan & Motorhome Club site, with dog bins at their entrance.

The Cafe on our site is lovely, very welcoming and again, all importantly dog friendly as long as your dog chills out whilst you eat. I always find buying a sausage helps us with this.... to be consumed by Dex after we have finished eating !! There is quite a large selection of food on offer and the standard is pretty good. In high season (i.e. now) it opens for a few hours in the morning serving breakfast fare until mid day, and then opens from 6pm to 10pm, serving dinner. It’s a fully licensed cafe and all the meals are also available as takeaway (HURRAH!!). There is also a pool table in the Cafe, which means if the cafe is very full you may get the occasional pool cue in the ear while you are trying to shovel in your food, but with a little consideration, both eaters and players can rub along just fine.

It is a five minute walk to the coastline path which then takes you down into Watergate Bay, although we have not ventured there as yet. The mist and fog have prevented me from being allowed to do it so far due to the very close proximity to the cliff edge, what with both Dexter and I being as clumsy as each other. I am told it’s about a twenty minute walk, but I will confirm what that actually is in aging menopausal biddies, one with dodgy knees and the other with a bad back in a future post.

The toilet and shower block are fine, nothing fancy but hot water throughout the day. Depending on when you visit, it may look a bit wet and dirty at times, but the site is full to the rafters, with a large number of sea lovers proudly wearing their wetsuits, needing to get showered. The showers are on a timer, and depending on which cubicle you choose, the timing can vary. And the shower heads seem set to hit you and the supposed dry area which does not help when drying off. Of course the wet weather also doesn’t help, as it’s impossible to maintain the highest standards. The hair dryer is coin operated but is out of order at the minute. The toilets are fine, as is the laundry/dish washing area, again with lashings of hot water all on a timer tap. And finally the Elsan point is practical, although you wouldn’t want to be pitched opposite it, watching people dispose of their disposals, so to speak.

The Reception area doubles up as the ‘essentials’ grocery shop where you can order bread, milk and breakfast pastries, and it also sells a small range of hot pasties and pies. It’s range is not extensive, but seems to cover your basic needs. And it is staffed by the lovely and helpful Roz, happy to offer help and advice wherever she can.

I would happily visit again, although I think I would opt for the larger pitch, or maybe even a pitch on the main site closer to the dog walking area for me and my boy.
