"Hi Claire, We'd just like to say thank you very much again for letting us hire your caravan for the week. Your caravan is lovely; very clean, comfortable and well equipped. The fresh milk in the fridge on arrival was much appreciated - it meant we could enjoy a wee cuppa once the unpacking was done!! The supply of fresh bedding and towels was great too - it meant we didn't have to lug all our own stuff with us. Nothing was a problem for you either, when we ran out of gas, you were right there to sort it out!! The kids had a ball, we all did, in spite of the chilly weather. The only disappointment is that your caravan is booked out through the summer, would've loved to come back this year. We have no hesitation in recommending your caravan to anyone. Thanks again Tina Gilchrist and Family"

Name: Miss K Flanagan Stayed: 11/05/13 to 18/0513

"Hi Claire, just dropping of a comment on my stay at your caravan on 11th may 2013 for a week what a pleasure to enter a caravan that was clean to a very high standard as I suffer from ocd this van has all mod cons and is very comfortable all clean bedding and towels supplied and I must say master bedroom bed is extremely comfy as I also have arthritis my stay was very relaxing as the caravan it situated at the back of the park away from any noise I will defiantly be recommending you to many of my friends and wouldn't hesitate to use you again everything was spot on and I couldn't find fault my stay was a pleasure well done on the excellent service you provide very happy caravaner thanks again ...Karen ,hope to stay again soon"

Name: Mr & Mrs Gartland Stayed: 29/06/13 to 06/07/13

"Claire Just a wee note to thank you for the use of your van. We stayed the first week of July 2013 with our two kids aged 8 and 4. This was our first real experience of caravaning since a child and we were not disappointed. Claire's van was modern, tastefully decorated but more importantly well equipped and immaculately clean...it would have put the cleanliness of our own home to shame. The plot is a fab location, nice and quite as set off from the main road, with its own picnic bench outside which we ate out on regularly. Arbroath itself is a great base to explore the whole coastal route from Broughty Ferry-Carnoustie-Arbroath-Lunan Bay-Montrose. The Red Lion Park has very good, immaculately clean, leisure facilities, including swimming pool, small soft play, the usual amusements/pool are and an adult only and family bar. Claire is a lovely, helpful lady and would highly recommend Claire's van."

Name: Mr & Mrs Mitchell Stayed: 03/05/12 to 06/05/12

"Dear Claire, We had a lovely stay at your caravan last weekend. The caravan is very clean, spotless and had everything we needed for our short stay. Thanks for the tea, coffee and milk which was provided it was very thoughtful. We couldn't fault anything about our stay. The caravan is very spacious,comfy beds, spotless toilets and plenty towels. Would definitely use your caravan again and would recommend anyone to stay in your caravan. Thanks again Robert and Diane "

Name: Mrs M. & Mr Smith Stayed 30/06/12 to 07/07/12

"Hi Claire, We had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday at your caravan, situated in a nice quiet spot on the site. The caravan itself was very clean and spacious with lovely furnishings, will love to come back in the near future and will recommend you to friends and family thanks again. "

Name: Mr & Mrs Smillie Stayed: 07/07/12 to 14/07/12

"We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday, both my parents, my wife and me, thought your caravan was one of the best we have ever stayed in,the attention to detail - such as fresh made beds, towels even down to videos and dvds for those early nights in -was amazing,the caravan was spotless and very well attended to. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone, once again many thanks william smillie"

Name: Mrs & Mr Dawson Stayed: 09/06/12 to 16/06/12

"My mum and dad had a great time. Please see below review. Caravan was exceptionally clean and tidy and a great size. Ideal for couples or a family. As the weather wasn't great they spent a lot of time in the caravan and said it felt homely. The location was great, within walking distance of all the attractions. They thoroughly enjoyed their week in Arbroath and will recommend your caravan to their friends & family. Thanks again. Mandy :-)"

Name: Mrs G Mitchell Stayed: 14/07/12 to 21/07/12

The situation being at the back of site was great for us as it was nice and quiet. Would be more than happy to hire again when in Arboath."

Booked this after thinking we wouldn't get away. What an absolute gem of a caravan. Never have I stayed in one so clean, lovely and well equipped. As a large family we often find there is not enough crockery, but there was ample here. More than enough utensils were found. Beds were amazingly comfy and all the kids had a great time. The additional buckets and spades were a bonus in the shed which was great for storage. Check in and check out was seamless. The only tiny niggle was the kettle as it was a hob one and for a person who drinks a lot of coffee, it took too long to boil....not really a niggle.. more a personal preference. Will definitely book again.

We had a wonderful stay in Claire’s caravan which is spotlessly clean and very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. She even left us a basket of cleaning products which was very thoughtful. The caravan is situated in a good spot at the back of the site which makes it more private and quiet. Claire was there to meet us on arrival to check us in and show us how everything worked. She is a very pleasant and helpful lady. There were six of us … 4 adults and 2 children… and there was plenty of space for us all. The extra toilet was very handy and the decent sized tv and free WiFi were a bonus. There is plenty for kids to do close to the site and it’s an easy walk into town for shops, restaurants, etc. We thoroughly recommend choosing this caravan and hope to come back again in the future.

We had a superb stay in Claire’s caravan which was spotlessly clean, very well equipped and set in a great spot at the back of the site which made it more private and quiet. Claire was there to welcome us and explained how everything worked - she is very pleasant and helpful. She provided us with a basket full of all kinds of cleaning products which was much appreciated. There were six of us .. 4 adults and 2 children and we had plenty of space with the three bedrooms and the extra toilet came in very handy! The decent sized tv and free WiFi were a bonus too. I have no hesitation in recommending Claire’s caravan… it has everything you could wish for. We hope to return again in the future.

Had a lovely stay here. Caravan is well equipped and a good size, very clean. Good location facing beach front and shops beside the site. The town is a short walk away with more shops, restaurants and bars (most had reopened). Claire was really friendly and welcoming showed us how to work everything on arrival and left a phone number just incase we needed anything else. She had supplied tea and coffee and put fresh milk in the fridge for us. She also left cleaning products to use during our stay. She is following COVID-19 guidance, track and trace and was wearing a mask. We were confident she had done everything to comply with current rules and felt safe. Upon our departure we were met with the same friendly service. We were half way home when we realised we had left something at the caravan, Claire waited for us to return and pick it up which was really good of her. We really enjoyed our stay and would love to holiday here again. A massive thank you to Claire for everything she did.

Grateful for this couple to let us have the opportunity to book this caravan last minute, as we were let down by another owner on the day of arrival. Had a lovely time in this spotless caravan, which we used for a base to visit family in the area. We will use again, when visiting family. Thank you again. Paul and Donna Inveraray

Contacted Claire about availability of her van for me and my son. From the start communication was superb. On arriving Claire was very welcoming. Caravan was very clean and tidy. Just as expected. Looked as good as it does in the photos. All bedding was clean and ironed. Ran out of gas one day so contacted Claire and she was out within hours to replace the bottles. When we were due to leave we had a nice chat and didnt feel as if we were rushed to get out. Will definitely book her caravan again. Loved it. Have already recommended to friends. Cheap too for a week at easter. Thanks again.

Claire, My mum and dad bid for a week's stay in your caravan at a charity auction you so kindly donated. When they arrived they were blown away with the beautiful decor and facilities within the van. Everything has been thought out with even dvd's and books. I could not thank you enough and would recommend your caravan to anyone. Certainly one of the best I have ever seen and been in. Thanks once again.

> Review may 2014 > Thank you for our weeks hire in your caravan Claire. > It was very clean, well presented and well equipped. We came with our 2 girls 8 months and 2 & half yrs old as u can imagine there is lots to pack for a family of 4 the use of the shed to store suitcases was so handy. Having a well equipped kitchen, bedding and towels supplied aswell as basic cleaning products, and providing a travel cot saved us bringing our own and saved on car space. The van was really quiet every bed was occupied as I met my family there. We all slept well and were comfortable and warm. We made use of the facilities on site and our oldest girl enjoyed the swimming. The park, beach, amusements and Jumping Joeys soft play centre is all within walking distance so the girls were never fed up. There is also a little park on site which was clean and well maintained for our 2 yr old to play in. > Thanks for the communication aswell all texts and phone calls were answered and we were grateful to extend our visit an extra night. We also left some belongings in the van in which we arranged to meet you and collect them. My dad was pleased to get his shoes returned. > Highly recommended good location. Nice warm comfortable van, well cleaned and maintained. Wouldn't hesitate to contact you again to ask for another hire. > Many thanks. Leanne,Paul & the girls x
