Stayed 4 nights over the Easter break, booked through a promo from a national newspaper but paid extra to upgrade to a silver "chalet". Arrival and check in were good, no problems at all. The Chalet itself looked very run down from the outside but was surprisingly clean, warm and modern on the inside. Park location was fantastic and facilities...

Have just come back from a Sun deal to the Thorness. The caravan smelt of dog and had some mould. They did come and spray something to take the smell of dog away. Apparently the bronze caravans are not used anymore by those who book direct with parkdean. The park was good for our children, the pool was nice, food...

We are regular visitors to Thorness Bay and have enjoyed visiting here in the past so we were very disappointed this time around with our experience. After checking in we had to switch caravans as our first allocated caravan was clearly not cleaned and smelt horrible. We were allocated a caravan with better facilities and although it was clean we...

Booked as a last minute break 4 days before checking in, we normally visit other Haven parks as we are caravan owners, booked the Isle of Wight as we live in Portsmouth and had an appointment my son had to travel back for mid way through. We are a family of 11 and managed to book 2 caravans, not quite...

This park is quite out of the way on the island and a good 20 + mins away from many of the attractions on the island. We picked this park as it had direct beach access and liked the views out towards the sea. The food in the restaurant is not very good a lot of it is just frozen...

The location of the site is very nice as IOW is quite a small island its very easy to get anywhere from here. Our only issues were with the static itself. The hot water didn't work properly (so didn't use the shower), several vital things were missing from the van. Wooden spoons, fish slice, tongs, washing up things - heating...

Mum was an owner here for five years. Only left cos site fees were getting stupid, and we moved from West Sussex to South Yorkshire. Pool is good with a flume, but a bit small. Site has almost doubled the number of caravans but pool same size. Did have an outdoor pool when we first went, but it was filled...
