*Disclosure – we received complimentary accommodation at Beverley Park, Devon in exchange for an honest review.*
When we were invited along for a Summer Holiday in Beverley Park, Devon I jumped at the chance. A week on the English Riviera in a platinum caravan with a hot tub sounded like absolute bliss. There is so much to see and do in Paignton and the surrounding areas, we couldn’t wait to get stuck into our busy week in July.
With two bedrooms and a hot tub, and with easy access to Paignton Zoo, Torquay and Brixham, we knew that Beverley Holidays platinum caravan would be the perfect base for our holiday on the English Riviera. When we looked at everything that Beverley Holidays has to offer we realised that Beverley Holidays is so much more than just a base.
Our two bed caravan, or glaravan as some may say, was perfect for us. There were two toilets, a shower, a fully functional kitchen, a TV in both bedrooms and the living room (much to Aria’s delight!). With a hot tub on our decking area and the most beautiful view we really couldn’t fault it.
As for Beverley Park itself, it was so much more than we imagined and really was the perfect place for our family holiday, with plenty to keep everyone entertained, whatever the weather.
We were lucky enough to be able to enjoy the outdoor swimming pools during a heatwave, it really felt like we were abroad, especially when they fired up the barbecue! If the weather isn’t on your side during your visit there is absolutely no need to worry, the outdoor pool is heated and there is also an indoor pool.
Talking of bad weather, you may or may not be pleased to hear that there is a small soft play on site! There is a larger area for the older kids and then a smaller baby area. There is also a large outdoor park which Aria and I loved to visit while Carrie and daddy took their afternoon nap!
During the evenings we loved to take a stroll over to the Starlight Bar, me for the prosecco and bingo, Aria for the Beverley Bear and Sandy Starfish showdown! The entertainers were absolutely fantastic, Aria thoroughly enjoyed her evenings there, as did I. To be completely honest, it was the hardest I’ve partied in a long time! When we were feeling in a real party mood we would stay until later in the evening when the entertainers would perform sets such as Queen and 90s. The outfits, the dancing and the singing were all fantastic and Aria was truly in awe of them.
Personally, I don’t do cooking on holidays, or at least not a lot. When I’m away I like to completely relax and I don’t find cooking and washing dishes in the least bit relaxing. Our caravan did provide everything there if we had wanted to cook, we just chose not to. Thankfully the on-site dining was great and meant that I needn’t worry about cooking.
We loved visiting The Jetty restaurant to take in the gorgeous views whilst eating our breakfast and evening meals. Our personal favourites on the menu were the pancakes for breakfast and the three tapas style starters for £10 for our main meal, Spencer and I would get six between us to share. On the warmer days we sat outside, overlooking the outdoor pools with a view of the sea we really didn’t feel like we were in England!
Other dining options include a takeaway (the pizzas were delicious) and a cafe. There is also a well stocked shop on sight and they occasionally put on barbecues around the outdoor pool.
And of course, if you fancy heading to the seaside there are plenty nearby!
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Beverley Park and will definitely return.
