There's something for the whole family at Beverley Park, with its excellent facilities that include two large swimming pools and several children's play areas. There are two distinctly different developments here - the lively Beverley Park and the more secluded Meadowside.
As well as the indoor and outdoor heated pools, Beverley Park also has a sauna, steam room, gym and therapy room. The Starlight Cabaret Bar provides great evening entertainment and there's a restaurant, café, takeaway, shop and off-licence. Crazy golf and tennis are also on offer.
There's a choice of lodges or caravans - we really like the magnificent Heron Lodge. Spacious enough for six, it has a Wii games console, iPod docking station and WiFi access, as well as a decking area with private hot tub and patio furniture.
Goodrington Sands at Paignton is less than a mile away; with ample parking, it's a lovely beach and excellent for swimming. Or you could head to Torquay for a visit to Bygones, where you can see more than 20 life-sized Victorian shops and a working model railway.

Platinum Gold 6 Caravan
New in 2017. Stylish caravan with state-of-the-art-features. One double with ensuite WC and two twin, all with TV. Beds made up for your arrival. Deluxe towels. Centrally heated. Coffee machine and fridge/freezer. Decking with outdoor furniture and outdoor hot tub.
We stayed in a lodge. It was clean very well equipped. Housekeeping attended on the first afternoon to check with us that it was up to standard it was. We arrived at 9 am, went to reception to let them know we had arrived. We were not due to check in until 3pm. They said for us to go and would call us if it was available early. We received a call at around 11.30am so we checked in. Fantastically early.
had a fabulous time and would definitely return!

Fab clean caravan
Excellent caravan with high standards of both quality and cleanliness
Could have hooks for coats and hook on toilet doors for towels and dressing gowns
lovely hot tub and the caravan was fine except that the 3rd bedroom was TINY. It wasn't really suitable for adult use and should be advertised as a child's room.

only fault we had was a six berth caravan with a fridge big enough two people. couldnt fit 4 pints of milk or even two pints would not fit. we had to swap sald shelf and stand milk in the salad box. its the only fault i found.... Restaurant..... bit more choice in food and we had the two steak offer for 20.00 wasnt asked if we wanted salad dressing sprinkled over the bit of salad as we did like that the coleslaw was not not liked by two of us but we had no choice. i just left mine on plate. if people were asked could of saved you some money and not wasted. burgers on a sunday funny compo. nothing for people with coeliac need more choice but thats not just you thats pubs and restaurants, will be back soon
Van was clean and tidy. All the vans were positioned so you didn't feel overlooked or in rows as so many parks.
Had a fantastic time with the kids can't wait till next time
Excellent family weekend with our grandson he enjoyed the evening kids club so much the staff were all amazing can't wait to return
