The Spectrum Set Up

Usually we would visit each accommodation to take note of any details our families may need to know. During the Coronavirus pandemic this has not been possible as government restrictions have prohibited travel. We have carried out a great deal of research on the local area as well as the properties and park itself. We have spoken to the owner, Jane and asked the questions we feel our families would want to know. If you have any questions that have not been covered here, please get in touch and we will be more than happy to speak to the caravan owners on your behalf. Find out more about what equipment will be available and how we prepare all our properties for your stay here.
