We had booked to camp on a different site on this particular night however they had to cancel due to flooding. I called approx. 10am on the day I was going and from the get-go I was impressed with the booking lady that helped. So, we booked for the night. On arrival after 6pm we easily found the security guard, who was ever so friendly and directed to us to our pitch which thanks to your signage we found very easily. I was amazed to find we had our own personal water tap, waste, and an aerial point. The pitch was of a great size and clean. Once setup we wandered off to find food. We entered the main complex which was presented immaculately. The atmosphere was electric with fancy dress everywhere (wish we knew that would have joined in. We went to Smokey joes which again was very well presented and clean and were met by a very pleasant well-mannered young lady who showed us to our table and came back with menus and a gave us the daily specials. We selected the meals drinks, and the meals came out a short while later. Well, the food was fantastic and LOVED the homemade chips by the way. Whilst eating I could help notice the wonderful looking meringue and apple pie. Having finished my meal I just could decide which one to go for. The young lady gave me her recommendation which of course I went for and then had the apple as well. They were brilliant. Having a now full belly we decided a nice drink in the bar and some entertainment was needed. We went to the show bar where the bar staff were quick to help and managed to create an alcohol-free cocktail for my wife. The room was packed out. We enjoyed the show from the bar anyway. The volume was not too loud that we couldn’t chat that was great. When a few people left later around 10pm we found ourselves a table an enjoyed the rest of the night. Upon leaving we were very surprised to have the entertainment team wishing us a good night as we left, in 40 years of camping this has NEVER happened, we loved that.
So, to shorten my waffle for you. Searles Leisure Resort, as far as we are concerned IS the UK’s BEST HOLIDAY PARK. You should be proud of the entire team from booking in, to the pleasant man cleaning the loos. Rest assured WE WILL DEFINITELY BE RETURNING.
We just cannot thank you enough for our short visit. Oh my goodness did we need to get out of the house after the last lockdown and of-course working from home. The Lodge was beautifully clean and the staff have been wonderful. We are back with you in March 2021 and hopefully again in November 2021 for a "supersaver" when they are ready to book. Thank you once again, we know we can always reply on "Searles" for a stress free holiday.
We have just spent four days at this caravan park and it is the best one we have ever visited. The caravan was spotlessly clean and had all the equipment required. The site is very near the sea and has very good entertainment and facilities.
Came to Searles for the new year break. Brought the dog this time as our Kennels were fully booked, so naturally we were expecting a lower standard accommodation. How wrong we were!! Caravan was spotless and virtually brand new. We ate in 'Smokey Jo's' on the first night, for convenience, but it was such exceptional quality we have eaten here ever since. The new year's party itself was brilliant. Again, food was amazing - not at all what you expect from mass catering. The staff throughout our break have been friendly, chatty, and helpful without exception and really take customer service seriously. Can't praise Searles enough, a lot of holiday resorts could learn from you! See you next year
This is the first time we have visited Searles and was pleasantly surprised how well run everything is. We stayed in a dog friendly caravan. There we 2 adults and 2 children. The two Bedroom caravan was wider then a normal one and there was easily enough space for us all. The caravan had an outside decking area with a gate that you could let your dog on to without having to tie them up. The actual park itself is huge but very well looked after. It is very close to the beach and a short walk to the town centre. There is also a Tesco store just outside the main entrance. The entertainment for the kids was good they said they enjoyed the daytime and evening events. We were only meant to be staying the weekend but ended up booking the rest of the week. I think we will try and visit again during the summer months.
We have just returned from our fourth holiday to Searles this year and will be back again next year. We have a six year old daughter and all of us love Searles! We have stayed in five different caravan types at Searles over the past few years and have found all of them to be clean and of a high standard/ quality. We particularly like the Oakdale caravans which are really conveniently located near to the main complex.
