Lovely area to stay

Stayed in a pub nearby for 5 days and found the whole area charming with lots of water sports available and walking and cycling trails.

Outdoor shop is very well stocked and staff very polite and can't help enough. Though being a water park they don't stock much for boaters/Canoeing etc. Gateway cafe is a lovely setting, food is excellent though £3.90 for a packet of tuna sarnies stung. However the cooked food n naughty cake is lovely. Something for everybody here no matter what... More

Map was terrible....took the kids on a bike ride and what was supposed to be accessible was absolutely not. Paths badly maintained, dog poo and full poo bags all of the place. Surrounded by noisy busy roads and all sorts of unfinished conduction. The cafe had a tiny outdoor space by the lake, the other outdoor area poorly maintained, with... More

Called in to the cafe after a stroll in the sunshine and enjoyed a delicious lunch. The power salads were interesting and fresh, and hubby thoroughly enjoyed his big breakfast. The lattes were also superb. Good variety of food available and all can be eat-in or takeaway. Bowl of water supplied for our doggies too. Look forward to going back
