Anyone been???? We are looking at a long weekend there the end of september. It looks lovely on their website but just wondered if anyone had actually been and knew what it was like. We just want a cheap break away with the kids and this would only cost us £82 for the weekend.

I met dh there many moons ago. Our eyes met across the dodgems .

It is a bit tacky and full of very loud people but it is right next to the beach, you can take a nice walk along the front into Clacton and for that price I don't think you can go wrong.

my great aunt had a mobile home there, so we used to go and stay

we only lived a few miles away in colchester but it was the only holiday she could afford

i remember developing a huge crush on one of the guys in the bingo hall lol

I'm really excited about going, we have stopped on the camp before when we have gone to clacton for the day before but never actually stayed on the camp, just want to take the boys away for a little while.

I am sure you will have a lovely time. I have just looked on the website myself and I think I am tempted to book a weekend in September too.

Went with my nan when I was small - maybe we were all ther at the same time and now we are all mumsnetters!!

Is there still an amusement arcade at the end of the site that is bright blue and a yellow first aid caravan on the beach??

wurlywurly Mon 16-Jul-07 17:09:52

misdee do you let your caravan?? would rather give money to mn'er then to the caravan company,

lisad123 Mon 16-Jul-07 17:16:26

we have a caravan on site there. Its has all the basics. Swimming pool is ok, and dont know if kids club is any good as dd never goes. Theres a nice family pub just at the entrance, but does fill up quick.

You will need a car, to do food shop and go into clacton, where the sandy beach is.

Its reminds me very much of our holidays as kids, crabbing on the rocks, loads of kids, and stoney beach.

They are doing a huge refub right now, but hopeully wont affect you too much. You can aslo use the pool and facilities on the sister site across the road, and they have water slide in their pool and its nicer.

Hope you have fun

MadEyeMisdee Mon 16-Jul-07 17:28:12

i dont pay into their caravan, far too much on to get use out of it, but am hoping to go in on it with them after my current situation improves.

lisad123 Mon 16-Jul-07 17:29:42

we dont normally let to anyone but friends and family, but if you email me, I will ask my mum and sister, we own it together.
