Hi, my name is Janet and I bought my first caravan in 2015. I love and care for my caravans and pride myself in what I do and believe good customers service is very important . When customers arrive I hope this is reflected in their experience and they find my caravans comfortable, well kept and a real home from home.

We stayed between xmas and new year with 4 adults and 3 young children. The caravan is extremely well presented and every thing you need for your stay is there ( bedding , cleaning products, bin liners, loo rolls are all provided). There is a dedicated parking spot just outside and the facilities at butlins are just a short stroll away. The whole process from booking to return of security deposit was smooth and simple and any queries were dealt with straight away. I would highly recommend and will definitely use again.

Your kind comments are appreciated. We will always work hard to keep standards maintained and happy customers is what we like! Thank you!

Just returned from a week at this caravan. The caravan itself was in a lovely location less than a minutes walk to the lake. It was spotlessly clean and beds all made up ready for us to use. Was pleasantly surprised at how well equipped the caravan was for our stay, toilet rolls, hand soap and cleaning products all available. The TV in the lounge was a great addition especially for the children. Very comfortable caravan with excellent customer service from the owner from our first enquiry to going, always responds very quickly to emails. Would highly recommend this caravan to families and would not hesitate to re-book myself

Thank you for your lovely comments, year on year we endeavour to keep standards up to keep customers happy. I am so pleased you enjoyed our service. Your always welcome back

The caravan was a home from home. My son loved the caravan and wanted to spend more time in it rather than in the Butlins resort. The communication between Janet and myself was seamless, always quick to reply to any of my questions. This was also great value for money. I would highly recommend this caravan to anyone!!!! Can not wait to go back next year.

We only just got back home and the children keep asking when they can go back to the caravan. They enjoy staying in the the caravan more than going to Butlins. The caravan is a home from home.Very clean and with everything you could possible need while on holiday. The children love the space outside to play and made full use of it. The adults was able to relax knowing they were safe. I will be recommending it to friends and family.

Date of stay - 26 Oct 2015 - 30 Oct 2015

Lovely clean & modern caravan. Owners have supplied almost everyting you would need for a holiday stay here, as mentioned in previous reviews, kids loved the games, DVD's & especially the PS3 (2 remotes and a selection of games supplied), all the kitchen appliances are new, with a variety of pots and pans supplied. Everyting you would expect in a 5* caravan. Parking for one car is right next to the caravan, although the spaces provided by butlins are a bit tight for bigger cars. It is only approx 10 mins walk from the main skyline complex & 2 mins from the Spar shop. Would definately recommend a stay.

Thank you for your comments. As ever our aim is to make our guests stay as comfortable as possible in a modern and contemporary setting. We are very pleased you enjoyed Willow Dean.
