Reviews from the Hoburne website

The children love Sammy and we love the area. There is everything you could want on the Park and the accommodation is fantastic. We have had great accommodation every time we have come.
We're coming back to Hoburne Torbay next week & this will be our 5th visit. We just LOVE it. The caravans are lovely, the park is squeaky clean, the food in the bayview restaurant is always excellent & most importantly, the kids have a ball!
We have just returned from our 5th visit to Hoburne Torbay and each time is fantastic! A very impressive and clean park, with such friendly staff, great take away bar and a brilliant entertainment team not only for the kids, but us 'grown ups' too! Already looking forward to our next visit! Keep up the excellent jobs you all do there.
This is our 10th year at Hoburne Torbay! So clean, freindly and we always have a great holiday. Looking forward to seeing you in 2 weeks time!
We will be coming for our 6th visit this September and always love coming back for more, the park, the staff and everything about the area is just top draw, we will becoming for many more years to come, my little girl loves the place to bits and also all of the entertainment staff.
I don't usually like hols in this country & wouldn't dream of staying anywhere 2 wks but Hoburne Torbay has changed me! We came back on Sat & now have post hol blues because we had such a great time we didn't want to leave! Everything about the place is excellent from how clean everywhere is, how nice & helpfull ALL the staff are, the spacious caravan, great entertainment & lovely surroundings. My daughters are in love with Sammy,Tommy & Larry and thought kids entertainment was brilliant. We are coming back next year for 2 weeks & can't wait! Thank you Hoburne Torbay for changing my view of a British holiday for the better!
Hoburne Torbay is a well maintained Park with excellent facilities. The caravan (Popular) was spotless upon arrival and provided everything necessary for a comfortable stay. The Park is 10 minutes walk from the beach but had enough onsite facilities for rainy days (the children loved the indoor swimming pool with slide). I would highly recommend the Park to other young families.
