U.K. Holiday Parks - Good and Bad.

Caravan holiday parks that I have holidayed on throughout the years. How I found the experience of staying on each one.... and provide my own reviews, whether great, good, bad, or downright rubbish.
Feel free to add to this list, all I ask is that you consider all aspects of a park before reviewing, and not just one that either pleased or dissappointed. Thanks.

Sea Acres Holiday Park (The Lizard)

Sea Acres Holiday Park is situated on top of a hill overlooking a beautiful little bay, on the south Lizard coastline. The site is extremely pretty and well laid out with most caravans having open views out to sea. Staff were very friendly and helpful. There is a laundry plus shop and gift store, and the office area is well planted and well kept.
All caravans appeared to be fairly new, perhaps only two to three years ols, and of the one manufacturer. They were green with the modern tiled roof effect, and this alone made the site look very tidy indeed.
You can walk down to the little cove in around 5-10 minutes, and it is great for families to picnic, with nice sand and sheltered waters.
We holidayed in the summer of 2009 , and going by current reviews Sea Acres has maintained their standards. All in all a lovely park in a beautiful setting.

Nairn Lochloy Holiday Park, Moray Firth, Scotland - Parkdean

Lochloy Caravan Holiday Park sits immediately to the east side of Nairns' lovely little harbour. The site is mainly flat, and runs along the landward side of a long line of 20 ft high - broad sand dunes. The beautiful Culbin beach can be accesses via occasional pathways from the park.
The park is well kept and maintained, and although the vans are a mix of all styles and ages, we haven't stayed in a " bad " caravan in all the years of holidaying there. Staff are helpful and pleasant, and the club/ centre has a pool, games room, store, pizza bar, and a nice bar - restaurant with open-air seating area for drinks/meals.
The town centre and amenities are only a ten minute walk, and Nairn itself is a lovely small town with large seafront grass parks and walks, and super sandy beaches either side if the harbour.
After many years holidaying at Lochloy, I honestly cannot say anything bad about it.
It's not perfect, but it's certainly gets an 8 out of 10 from us.
