This is the mark of the official nationwide quality assessment scheme. 5 stars is the highest possible grading and indicates that the park meets all the requirements of the grading scheme to an exceptional level of quality. An inspector arrives unannounced annually to thoroughly inspect the park to ensure that standards are maintained and are kept to an exceptional standard throughout all areas of the park.
We are recommended by the AA following a thorough annual inspection and have been awarded the highest possible rating of 5 pennants.
Businesses opting to join Green Tourism are assessed by a qualified grading advisor against a rigorous set of criteria, covering a range of areas, like energy and water efficiency, waste management, biodiversity and more.

‘Impeccable caravan, better than any cottage I have recently rented. Full heating and kitchen and felt brand new. We had such a lovely holiday here. Great indoor pool, such a bonus on wet days. Really lovely children’s playground. Great little shop and real treat having fish and chip van to visit. By far the best campsite I have ever stayed at….’
