Positive Reviews

Clean, attractive park.

Pakefield Holiday Park maintains high standards with the park kept very clean and tidy even when there are large crowds around. The buildings and chalets are well maintained as well. Manicured gardens adorn the park while lovely flowerbeds line the walkways.

Friendly bluecoats.

The park’s staff, aka the bluecoats, are very friendly and really good with kids. The staff at Free Skull Island provide hours of unbridled fun while the water walkers are a hot favorite with the kids.

Wide choice of dishes.

The park serves a very wide variety of dishes there is something for everyone, including kids and picky eaters. The quality of food is great as well. There is also a wide choice of family and kid activities available it’s hard to run out of fun things to do here.

Negative Reviews

Some rooms a bit run down.

While most of the rooms at Pakefield Holiday Park are pretty decent and in good shape, a few look a bit jaded with things like peeling paint and wall paper, moldy walls, and a couple of broken down amenities.

Gets pretty jam packed.

The park is a pretty popular family entertainment hotspot and frequently receives a large amount of guests. This often leads to crowding in some of the more popular facilities such as swimming pools and entertainment facilities, some of which can become unavailable.

Some activities not child-friendly.

There is no shortage of entertainment activities on the park, most of which have been designed with kids in mind. Unfortunately, some featured activities, such as kung fu artists cutting a newspaper to shreds using whip, can be downright scary for little ones.
