"Lovely Site"

"This is a lovely, peaceful, friendly family site - staff & management are exceptionally friendly & very helpful - nothing is too much.

The site is very clean, showers are lovely and warm (as is the pool). Onsite you have a park, playing field, great dog walking field , small games room and clubhouse with bar, food and some entertainment (all if which is highly recommended).

There are plenty of things to do in the area"
