Couldn't have asked for a more relaxed and refreshing venue to celebrate our 20th Wedding anniversary. Had an awesome stay. With knowledgeable and friendly resort staff assisting all our queries. Have to go back. And yes... the dams do have trout. I landed a lovely rainbow

An enjoyable few days with family, in a peaceful resort with endless views. Children would have a wonderful time. The fittings, crockery and bedding were of highest quality but the external maintenance was in serious need of attention. Rain poured through the windows and doors during two storms. Restaurant adequate

Beautiful, peaceful and tranquil atmosphere. Self-catering Lodges are spacious, clean and well equipped. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Just the right spot to unwind and relax. We did the Midlands Meander and found this Resort to be very central and pleasant.
