Nice little caravan park if you just want to relax. Away from the hustle and bustle (this can be good or bad depending on your trip)

What a lovely quiet caravan park so perfectly positioned. The beach on your doorstep and a fabulous wetland at the gate. Away from the rat race but an easy short drive to all you could need.

A great little caravan park in the quiet hamlet of Breamlea. Generous sites with access to power and water (although you may need 20m+ of hose and power lead). Amenities are well looked after and cleaned twice each day. Highly recommend sites 200 & 201 for a pair of cans as they have a sheltered picnic table between them. Camp kitchen does not have cooking facilities but there is a BBQ nearby.
