The Primrose Valley Holiday Park is a seasonal caravan park located on a cliffside with beach access and one of the largest parks from the Haven Holidays group. The property is aimed at kids and attracts families traveling on a budget.

Further away, a low-rise structure houses several fast food dining options with lots of outdoor seating. The lovely lake is a green, peaceful part of the park, shaded with trees and surrounded by green lawns. The park also has direct access to a beautiful long stretch of sandy beach with cliff views.
