its a case of been there seen it done that , we have no plains to use the van this year , i no longer have the time to rent both out now due to work , so its a case to sell now or lose more later , as it stands i have broke even so not lost a penny ,may of even made a bob or two , caister is a great park for renting out that i can say , we are off to rockley park in a few weeks to have a look at moving our eclipse there ,but will say this after the mistake of combe haven not so much the park , the bloody sales man and the sales manager both have now gone that says a lot, we will be making more than sure that what they tell us about owners only facilitys is just that owners only :rant:

will be interested to hear what you think of Rockley. That was on our list, we had a few visits but gave up.
Few issues - public indoor pool very small, show bar - no idea why but guests didn't join in, they were trying to do party dances and in the end the funstars put chairs on the stage and said they may as well show us them sitting down so we could join in at our seats hehe.
BIggest problem was the pitches (and parking). they have a couple of newly developed areas but only if you have a relatively new van. The bring on pitches were worse than the ones we saw at Combe Haven! In the mud literally, backing onto the railway, only parking was on mud by the vans. They have squeezed vans in at every angle you can imagine, and unless you have a short van they don't have many pitches. We were meant to have a decent van with decking but they couldn't find anywhere to put it.
having said that, I loved the views there and the area, and the owners outdoor pool was nice. At the time they had a busy lounge but were strict on children going in after a certain time - whics would have been an issue for us. Yes, they do have a lounge!

I didn't know you could move caravans between Haven sites. We've asked Haven about this and other companies, but they always give the same answer - They've never got any pitches available, but if you really want to move they can sell you a new van.

How did you manage to get them to agree to this?

they usually do let you move - you have to pay reconnecting and a few fees, but not too bad. They only offer certain pitches - as they would [refer you to upgrade. we rejected the pitches when we were first shown, but rang a couple of times asked if others had come up - they said try again in the new year. In suppose they would rather we moved than left all together. They tried hard to get us to upgrade but failed! and the pitches were much better in the new year.

Tony I can't believe you are leaving Caister. You are my closest neighbour. I must admit I have been thinking about moving to another park but simply due to the problems I have had with getting jobs done or jobs not being done right. Does anyone know what happened to Kim? She was great but seems to have disappeared.
