Waterside Holiday Park has a clear focus on family fun; you will certainly never be short of things to do.

This spacious holiday accommodation sleeps up to 8 guests and comprises of a master bedroom, 2 x twins bedrooms, kitchen living/dining room, shower/toilets and separate toilet.

Both twin bedrooms (4 x beds) are all 6ft single beds, the twin rooms are fitted with ample storage for your holiday gear.

The master bedroom has a full-size double bed with a beautifully comfortable orthopaedic mattress; the master has its own fitted wardrobe, small but compact vanity area and mirror.

There is also a double fold-out bed with yet another comfortable mattress for additional sleeping in the living area, my kids like this sleeping area because it has the TV/DVD in the room.

Duvets and pillows for up to 8 people are provided, however, you will need to provide your own towels and bedding, (duvet covers and pillowslips) alternatively, you can hire bedding from the holiday park reception for a small fee. If you wish to hire bedding please ask about this when you are making booking as I will need to pre-order it for you.

The caravan has a large living room area which is ideal for seating all the family, with a good sized floor area for those fun family board games you play when on holiday. The living room also has a couple of much loved, fun bean-bags for those who want to lounge out on the floor rather than on the sofas.

Our home has a fully fitted modern kitchen, comprising of a full-length fridge freezer, full-size cooker, grill and oven, microwave, toaster, several assorted baking dished, pans and all the necessary cooking utensils to make your stay feel as if you are truly at a home away from home. There's a separate dining area and breakfast bar.

We allow pet to stay at our caravan but request that pets are not allowed on the furniture or in the bedrooms. We ask that no more than 2 pets are permitted during your stay. There will be an additional premium of £25.00 per pet per stay

Unfortunately, we've had to introduce a £50.00 Security Bond payment as not everyone takes care of our home when they stay or they’ve liked some of our ornaments and kid's DVD's and taken them home with them. It's such a shame that a few spoils it for the rest, but we try to keep our home in the best condition and things lost or damaged can prove to be costly to repair or replace. However, on the proviso that the caravan is left in good order and with no damage or breakages, the security bond is fully refunded to you at the end of your stay, that said, in the event that excessive damage is cased that exceed £50.00, if it is found that the damage was deliberate and/or wilful, we will seek full compensation for any repairs required. Whilst we will endeavour to seek a resolution amicably, if this is not achieved, we retain the right to seek compensation via the Small Claims court for which any legal cost incurred will also be sought if our case is successful.

In line with recent Government guidelines prior to opening our caravan for renting, we have recently completed a Covid-19 risk assessment of my caravan and have put in place extra cleaning and hygiene processes which conform to Government and Health and Safety guidance. Our cleaner has been advised on all cleaning processes and will use cleaning methods and products as recommended by the HSE. Our caravan has been given a "We're Good To Go" mark by Visit Britain.

This Willerby / Winchester deluxe 38 x 12 caravan is a surprisingly spacious holiday home which, boasts a large double power shower and toilet, as well as a separate toilet, to cater for all the family and/or guest party needs.

This beautiful home has a well maintained gated decking area with a table and chairs so you can enjoy your breakfast, lunch or dinner alfresco, or even just enjoying a relaxing drink out on the deck at any time throughout the day.

Our home has mains supply for electricity, gas and water, no need for gas bottles or having to worry about meters running out, this is all included in your rental fee.

For chillier days or just for those cosy nights in, there is an electric fan assisted fire in the living area; the rest of the caravan has gas central heating in all the rooms. The caravan is fully fitted with double glazing.

There is ample parking around the caravan site for as many cars as you want to bring.

Our holiday home is also ideally situated for easy access to the site amenities, the caravan is close to the children’s play area, (you can watch the children play from the front windows) but also the on-site pools, the arcade, Smugglers pub and restaurant.

However, if its tranquillity and seclusion you want, approximate 50 to 75 strides from the front door and walk under the stream train viaduct (Paignton to Dartmouth) and the bays vista's are before you, uninterrupted views and just over the crest, you’ll find a secluded beach (Devil's Armchair) great for getting away from it all, for kids paddling and playing in the rock pools.

However if you want to venture off-site and do want to take your car, there is the bus stop which can be seen from our caravan where the No.12 bus can take either take you to Brixham, (the home of Sir Frances Drake’s Golden Hind), or into Paignton and/or Torquay (where there are too many attractions to list) this bus runs approximately every 10 minutes. For those guests who are of state pension age, you can use your free bus pass.

The Holiday Park is just a short “child-friendly” walk to Goodrington Beach and Quay West, which has a popular water slide park. Goodrington beach comprises of 2 sandy beaches with fun-loving rock pools for exploring at each end of the beach.

Alternatively, turn left out of the Holiday Park and walk down over the hill to Broadsands beach, it’s less commercial but still boasts a beautiful sandy and child-friendly beach.

Nearby is Brixham, here you can book your fishing trip, a ferry ride from Brixham across to Torquay or take a cruise out into the bay during the day or for that romantic evening.

Torquay offers great shopping, with all the main high street brands both within the town centre as well as the normal out of town retail parks.

For non-premium weeks, we offer long weekends (Fri to Mon) and mid-week break (Mon to Fri) bookings. Please email for details.

My husband and I stayed in Kathy’s mobile home while we were moving house for almost 3 weeks. We truly felt as though it was a ‘home from home’ and Kathy was kind enough to rent the caravan to us for an extended period, with our pets as well. Such a well equipped caravan - even the things we didn’t think would be there were there such as foil and numerous pots and pans. We personally loved the ornaments and the homely feel of the caravan which was so different to one we had stayed in just before, which was company owned and felt very bare and grubby. Kathy’s caravan felt like a holiday home. Great location 15 minutes slow walk along the seafront into Paignton and we went at the time of year when dogs were allowed on the beach which was fantastic for us. Thoroughly enjoyed watching the ‘train of lights’ go past and the excellent close distance of several supermarkets and cafes. All in all, a great stay and we were almost sad to leave for our new house!

Hi Joanna, thank you for your lovely review and we are really pleased had a relaxing stay given the stress of a house move. Ray and I hope the unpacking goes well

What can I say, I left a review last year, please read if you're reading this review as there is really nothing more I can add. This year was on a par with last year and although not possible to control weather patterns by human intervention, someone somewhere (God knows who!!) made sure every day was simply superb, sunshine without a break! (how did you manage it Kathy!) Excellent service and attention from Kathy, prior to and during our enjoyable stay and no doubt when we've left. The chalet was simply immaculate upon arrival, everything you could possibly expect and more. Mr J chapman (a most satisfied customer)

Thanks John, it was lovely to have you and the family to come and stay again, hope to see you again soon.

We have just returned from a lovely holiday. We arrived on site very early (11 30 am) and was able to purchase our entertainment passes straight away, meaning we could use the amazing swimming pool. We popped over to the caravan first, just to get our bearings and spoke to the lovely cleaner who told us we'd be able to check in around an hour later. We were not disappointed when we did so, the caravan is absolutely gorgeous. From all the little home comforts to having a 2nd toilet, we couldn't have asked for more. Communication with Kathy was excellent, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her and her beautiful caravan to anyone.

Thank you so much so such a lovely review, it's a real pleasure to host such a lovely as you guys. I will be sure to pass on your comments to Hayley, our cleaner, she helps to make sure your first sight of the caravan provides the best impression. Family holidays are so very special and help to make amazing memories for everyone and we are very pleased that our home has helped to make such special memories for the summer of 2019.

Just back after a great holiday in your caravan. It was very very clean and had everything needed for a perfect holiday. It was like a home from home. The position of the van was brilliant with access to a great view of the sea and walks to the coves and loved how close we were to the steam train passing by. Was within easy access by car to Paignton, Torquay and Brixham. All in all had a brilliant week made even better by the brilliant caravan. Would highly recommend and will definitely be returning. Thanks Kathy. Dorothy and Jimmy.

Hi Dorothy Many thanks for the lovely review, we are delighted that you both had a lovely holiday. I've just seen on our Facebook page some of the photos Jimmy took whilst you guys were staying at the caravan, he is a talented photographer. We'd love to have you come and stay again and maybe next time, you will be able to visit Cockington for a cream tea, I think Jimmy would love to photograph the village. Best regards Kathy

Superb caravan and location. Caravan was very comfortable, clean and well dressed. Very homely. The shower, separate toilet and kitchen were all well stocked and had everything you would need. We had older children and also 2 young children so the location of the caravan was perfect! close to the park for them to wander and play but absolutely no noise or interruption from the kids playing. Access to the beach and coves, through the tunnel was ideal. Superb views whatever the weather. The owners were great from booking to aftercare, will definitely be booking again...in fact, already booked again for 2020!

Hi Rob, it really is a pleasure to host families such as you guys and having seen your pic's on the caravan FB, it was obvious that the entire family enjoyed themselves, we hope our little home by the sea helped with your overall experience. As per your email earlier, I've already booked out your dates for next year so the children can start counting down the weeks. (only 51 weeks to go)

This was our second time in the caravan. It was out of season so this time I dealt directly with the owner who was very helpful and provided all the information required. The caravan is lovely and the heating is really good and warmed up the place in no time. There is everything you need there. My little girl is 4 and loves staying there as you can see the steam train passing really close by. I grew up in the area and just love Torbay. This is an ideal location to walk to Goodrington Beach and very central in Torbay.

Hi Michelle We are extremely pleased that you elected to come back to stay in our home, and like your little one, ours love the stream train. They love to wave to the passengers as the train and get so excited when passengers wave back, and sometimes the engineer toots his whistle for the children.

Just returned from 4 nights away in this lovely caravan. Upon arrival the first thing we noticed was that it was spotlessly clean. The caravan is very modern and has everything that a family would need for a great holiday. We stayed over Easter and the weather wasn't great, struggling to get above 5-6 Degrees during the day and colder at night! However this wasn't an issue once inside the caravan as it has full gas central heating with rads in every room. Also with the added benefit of an electric fire in the living area. The kitchen was very well equipped and had a full size cooker, full size fridge / freezer and a microwave. Every utensil that you could possibily require could be found stored in the drawers and cupboards and there was even a supply of plastic plates, cutlery and beakers which are perfect if you have young children. An added bonus was that tea, coffee, sugar, orange squash, plus cleaning products such as hand wash, washing up liquid, air freshener spray, surface cleaner, toilet roll etc were all supplied Free charge, on the basis that if an items runs out during your stay, then you replace it. The power shower was also excellent and was housed in a double sized cubicle rather than one of these tiny little ones in which you barely have enough room to be able to clean yourself in! The bedrooms were much as you would expect, with good amounts of storage in each of the 3 rooms. The living area was light and airy and contained a TV and DVD player. Another nice touch was that a selection of DVDs are supplied, many of them aimed at young children. Outside there is a small decked area which is not only gated, but the gate can also be locked with a key - again a great addition if you have toddlers! We would definitely recommend this caravan, and its owner Kathy who goes the extra mile to ensue that her guests have a pleasant stay.

Many thanks David, we are delighted the family have a lovely holiday. We strive to make our home a place you feel as if you've just swapped for your home. We'd love to have you come and stay again All the best Kathy

Great family sized caravan with loads of space for the 5 of us. Fantastic shower and the whole place was very very clean. Excellent access to the beaches in the area all within short walk and 5 mins drive from Paignton centre with all the arcades on the pier. Recommend this caravan for a family, we could have easily had 2 more people stay with us given the size of the place. We will be going back!!!!!

Many thanks Rebecca, I am so pleased that you and your family had a good stay. We would be more than happy for you to visit again.
