I stayed at this site with my husband & 4 year old daughter, which she loved the park, the pool was a good size we used to go late afternoon was never stupidly busy. The park is a good size park with static caravans to hire & has a touring site, there are also chalets to stay in too. Indoor bowling alley with slot machines but we found this a good site for my daughter the shop was handy to pick up some essentials and staff were helpful too.

This has to be the jewel in the crown as a touring caravan site. The very best we have been on. Fantastic facilities. It's that good we have booked 7 nights in August. All the staff very helpful and the site kept very clean by the staff. I can give it 10 out of 10 for the quality and very fair prices. You wont find better than Stanwix Park.

Just returned from a 13 day stay at Stanwix with our 2 grandkids. We loved every minute and so did the kids. The touring facilities are top notch, water, sluice and chemical waste on each pitch! we ordered the internet for multiple devices and the connection was fantastic. The entertainment team are brill and did a great job of keeping the kids entertained. We are already booked up for next year!

We have visited Stanwix Park for many years in a touring caravan. Site facilities are top drawer, everything is there to keep children of all ages occupied and plenty for adults too. If you like cycling this site is wonderful, all level roads within easy reach of the park, you can cycle for hours! We have watched this site expand over the years into a top holiday destination. On our recent stay we encountered what appears to have become a regular problem on the Criffel touring field. Late night noise from parties in tents and awnings which goes on till well after 2am, sometimes much later! This needs to be addresses by the park security, otherwise it will develop into a shambles. There was no one from security checking the late night party revellers so it's a 'free-for-all', 'make as much noise as you want, no one will stop you'. It really let's the place down badly in our opinion. We are not party poopers, we can expect a bit of chatting and noise as people leave the clubhouse but not until two or three in the morning! Come on Stanwix Park, you need to look at this issue and put some late night security in place as soon as possible

We stayed in platinum caravan it was spacious and spotless. Loads for kids through the day there's bowling, golf, swimming, arcades, soft play, outdoor play area and bikes for hire however they do go fast. Night times there's magician, balloon making, games, disco and karaoke. Site clean plenty of space for riding bikes or walking a dog.

Just got back from a week here staying on criffel area in our folding camper. Loved everyday we were here plenty to do and see in surrounding areas. Park facilities were spotless and cleaned and checked reguarly. Entertainment was excellent my 7 year old loved it as loads to do so never got bored plenty of activities to do. People were lovely and friendly to which made good friends with family from newcastle to which we both planning if a trip back to site as both families loved it parents and kids. Staff were very friendly and helpful if needed anything. Shop well stocked with essentials if forgotten anything. Food was lovely from the restaurant couldn't fault it tbh. Even though its 350 mile drive for us 1 way we definitely be making this a yearly trip well worth the drive. Would highly recommend and see you next year.

Just returned from 5 nights at Stanwix, 3 families in 3 tents, with 4 children (age 10-12) and 4 adults. Had a great time helped by the glorious weather. Staff helpful and friendly. Pitches on the small side, not much room for sitting out, with all the cars parked. Shower blocks brilliant, clean, tidy, warm and lots of baths too. The disabled bath/shower room excellent and well used by us, as my grown up daughter broke her ankle while we were there (no fault of the site). Only downside is placement of toilet roll in disabled bathroom (can't be reached when on the loo). Kids loved the park area and played tennis. Crazy golf a bit naff. Outdoor swimming pool fantastic, especially as you can take dogs poolside. Indoor pool good, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi great. Didn't do entertainment other than the bowling which was reasonably priced. Cafe basic but good, shop ok, if a little expensive. Didn't leave the site much (due to my daughter's injury, but lots to do on site. Visited Dunes cafe/bistro, excellent, let us borrow wheelchair for the remainder of holiday! Can't praise them highly enough.

All the kids want to go back.

Just returned from a mid week half term break. On arrival, the site looked very welcoming and reception staff very polite. Our welcome pack had not been prepared though and the receptionist very apologetic.

We were then directed to our pitch. This is when the holiday started to go down hill. A third of the pitch, no 17, was taken up by two large trees, a third tree had obviously been blown down at some point and a huge uprooted rootball and stump remained, which children from surrounding pitches constantly climbed on. I got so sick of telling them to move off our pitch I eventually gave up.

Even though we only had a smallish awning this left us with very little space to put out table and chairs and considering this pitch had cost the same as the other pitches I felt ripped off.

The first day we used the indoor pool as the weather wasn't too good and my daughter thoroughly enjoyed herself.

That evening we had a walk down to the bar. Not really our scene as we don't play bingo And our daughter found the entertainment more suited for young children. We left around 9pm.

That evening we were woke up by noisy drunks staying on pitches 51 to 53 effing and jeffing.

The following day the weather was much better so we walked down to the beach and into the town. Can't really say there was much there except a spar and co-op.

Spent the afternoon around the outdoor pool. IMO the pool is quite dangerous as there are no proper indicators of the whereabouts of the pools deep parts. On that afternoon I saw two children being fished out of the pool after venturing into the middle and encountering the sudden drop.

We didn't use the bar that night as the sun stayed out late into the evening and after most of the families went there the site was lovely and peaceful. Until the people from across the way returned home drunk and swearing again.

Glad to have left the following morning as people seemed to be arriving for the weekend and I though the site was busy enough for us already?

The site itself is very well maintained and very tidy. The clubhouse in my opinion is very unnactractive as it looks like an airport lounge and the pitch we were offered overlooked this view and the caged tennis courts. We were then offered a pitch on the quieter side of the touring pitches which was far better. That said it is also in the vicinity of the camping pods which appeared to be booked by families on the weekend. Some of these families unfortunately spoilt this site as the children ran riot, played ball games next to caravans etc and had total disregard for other campers. The toilet facilities etc were cleaned daily to a very high standard, however over the weekend period were trashed by children not being supervised. We only booked this site as my husband was there to play golf at the local club. Wouldn't return to this site as perhaps for the touring side some rules and boundaries need to be put into place and then monitored?

A very good site for families with children. Really good facilities. The kids loved the indoor swimming pool and it was great to be able to go bowling one night without leaving the site. The entertainment in the evening is good for the children although don't expect theatre standard shows! The kids loved the disco though.

The tent pitch we had was quite close to the toilet block which got a little bit smelly, so it would be good if it was cleaned a little more regularly.

It is quite far from the traditional lakes and I wouldn't like to pitch here in high winds.

Overall, I would recommend. We would go back here again in the future.
