Reviewer: Bookworm 1 review from this member

Just had a really lovely holiday here.

The site is nestled between Morecambe and Lancaster and we were surprised at how much there was to do in the area.

The site itself was clean and spacious with all amenities you would expect.

We stayed in a holiday home and can see why they changed the name from caravan, it was spacious and very much home from home with every comfort we needed.

The staff were very friendly with no pushy sales. There was a heated pool and sauna but we didn't use it however it would have been handy had the weather not been so kind.

The club was nice with a good atmosphere. Billy Beaver and the party dances were brilliant for the children and there was no commercialism at all which was a breathe of fresh air especially with three children. The cabaret played up to date tunes and managed to keep the dance floor filled helped by the entertainment team who seemed to really enjoy thier job, my daughters loved them!

The views over the sea were stunning and worth a visit in itself we even went pond dipping in the nature reserve and found frogs and newts.

Had a fully relaxing time and will certainly be visiting again.

This site is very easy to find and not too far from the motorway, but far enough from all roads to be peaceful

Upon arrival we tried to check in, but we were an hour early, so we took the dog for a walk along the nature reserve path at the entrance to the site. This was large enough to let the dog have a good run and plenty of poo bins.

Back to checking in and a mistake had been made on the booking and they had omitted the dog from the booking, however they acted swiftly and were able to accommodate us after all. Very helpful and cheerful reception staff.

We were given the keys and directed to the caravan. It was very clean, spacious and with all the utensils, equipment required. It was a private static that the owners let out and we booked it through the sites website. The caravan also had a veranda with table and chairs and was fenced and gated, so perfect for the dog to sit in the sunshine and chill.

We checked out the shop on site and this stocked all the usual daily required items, newspapers and a selection of fresh fruit and veg.

We then checked out the bar and games room. The bar was spacious and being Whitsun entertainment was on, but the place was not heaving. It was typical holiday park entertainment, but fine for the younger kids. Plenty of gaming machines, pool tables etc. To keep the kids amused. Also an outdoor play area, but we did not use it so cannot comment too much.

We ate in the bar area and four adult meals cost less than £20 and the food was lovely, cooked to perfection. Bar prices were very reasonable too. There is also a cafe and tv area in this section.

We used the swimming pool and this was a good size with a lifeguard on duty to make sure all behave. They had a few water toys to play with when we were there. The pool opens all day from 9am to 5pm, but 9 - 10am was for adults only.

The site location is so very peaceful at night and the views are stunning out across Morecambe Bay. Yes if you look to the right there is a power station there, but we hardly noticed it and it certainly was not noisy or intrusive in anyway. Nice walks from the site too onto the beach and around the park.

Local shopping can be found with Asda in Lancaster which takes about 10 mins to get to. Tesco express can be found on outskirts of Morecambe with plenty more shops in both Lancaster and Morecambe

Lancaster is a lovely old town with plenty of great shops and restaurants and worth an afternoon there if that is your thing. Morecambe is much more run down and although they are trying, for shopping I would suggest Lancaster. There is still restaurants and shopping in Morecambe, but not as much choice.

The site is perfectly located for the Bowland Forest and walking is aplenty. So many great places to hike if that is your thing and all around half an hours drive away. The North Yorks Moors are also up this way, but are about an hour away

Blackpool is 45 mins away, but we did no venture there.

This site has lots of facilities- not many I'd recommend I'm afraid, small pitches very tight to get caravan in (ours 23ft), noisy neighbours and security not in a hurry to come to our rescue! Entertainment hit and miss, typical bingo, singers etc. Showers and toilet facilities- messy and cold- thankfully we didn't have to use them more than once!

Worst bit?- power station view and beach

Reviewer: MATTY 42 2 reviews from this member

Stayed three nights at Ocean Edge for £35 which I thought was really good value. Food ok, drinks reasonable. Childrens entertainment went on till about eleven o'clock, full marks to the entertainment staff who never stopped. Toilet and washing block could do with a major overall, as I had only one warm shower during my stay and the area is starting to look tired. Was woken at 5am by a chorus of dogs barking, which went on for some time. The local watering hole is the Duke of Rothesay public house which does great food and beers. Its only a fifteen minute walk away and only £3.50 in a taxi. Will be going back at Easter so hopefully the few little niggles will be sorted out by then.

Sorry but this is the worst campsite we have stayed at.

The location is next to the sea, but is also right next to the Heysham docks and a huge power station.

Everything about the site looked scruffy. The toilets were dirty and were never cleaned during the 3 nights we were there.

I think campers deserve better for the price of £19. 00 per night.

The pitches were cramped, you had no where to sit outside your tent.

I would NOT recommend this site at all.

Reviewer: Jamescummings 1 review from this member

We stayed here for 12 nights and found the site ok. It has everything you want in a big commercial site but doesn't do it very well. Our 3 year old liked the soft play area but the smell of the kitchen put us off going.

The touring field is as the name suggests on the ocean edge and as so is very exposed, many tents blew away/down during our stay and people were just leaving them and going home with their belongings. I would suggest heavy duty steel pegs and a mallet for your tent/awning as the wind is relentless.

This site is not as bad as some of the reviews but do not expect too much when booking. The beach is difficult to get to and is mostly mud, rubbish and concrete blocks close to the shore but is ok if you keep going further out. The shower/toilet block is clean enough and there is plenty of hot water, the warden is also very helpful, it is best to see him before you pitch as the layout is unclear. All in all not a bad site if you look at the price compared to some with far fewer facilities
