We visited in March 2017 having booked through Sun Holidays and this was my first stay in a caravan so I was unsure what to expect. Yes the roads approaching the site are incredibly narrow although there are passing points, infact we only came across a very small number of other vehicles so can't complain too much however I didn't...

This was my second visit to Challaborough Bay Holiday Park the last one being 4 Years ago.

Fortunately I had purchased...

We arrived on a very windy wet day at around 9.30pm. Our journey in was horrific. For about 10 miles into the camp the roads are extremely narrow and very twisty. It is the worst roads I have ever traveled on taking us around an hour to travel that 10 miles. On arrival we thought we would look around while...
