Valley Farm Holiday Park is the ideal spot for exploring this lovely county, and is just a 5 minute drive from the nearest beach. On booking your family break through Park Resorts, you’ll be sent a pamphlet with great ideas of places to visit, things to do, what to see and has some really useful discount vouchers for the local attractions.
Park Resorts Valley Farm is an all action 4-star park, perfect for fun-filled family holidays.

At Valley Farm there is a whole programme of daytime and evening entertainment laid-on for you, so you can get as involved as you want to, or just back and enjoy the break.
