If you want to chill out,this is the place to do it.We've recently returned from a week there & it was easily one of the most relaxed family breaks that we've had.
Our bungalow was superb,3 bedrooms,2 bath/shower rooms,well equipped kitchen,comfortable sitting room,sauna & solarium.The kitchen had everything needed with cooker,fridge,dishwasher,microwave,coffee maker,toaster,electric kettle etc,table & 6 chairs.Sitting room had tv,dvd,cd players,comfortable sofa & chairs.The outside patio area also had a table,chairs & parasol.Downstairs had one bedroom & a bath/shower room & seperate toilet.Upstairs had 2 bedrooms & a shower/toilet(no bath).
The park itself had more than enough to keep the children & the adults entertained with outdoor & indoor playgrounds,crazy golf costing 2.50 euros each,indoor swimming pool & slide,snooker,air hockey,pinball machines & a 4 lane bowling alley costing 15 euros per lane per hour.On site there are numerous bikes for hire costing 7.50 euros per child per day & 9.50 euros per adult.There are also tennis & volleyball courts.Right next to the park is Vossenpan stables with 1 hour horseriding costing 15 euros per child & 25 euros per adult. Directly opposite the main entrance to the park is a forest with numerous marked trails.An easy 20 minute walk away is the Hellendoorn adventure park which was a great day's fun for the little ones.
The onsite shop is well stocked with a good selection of everything needed & the park restaurant,Timbers Brasserie,was excellent with great food at fairly reasonable prices,pleasant surroundings & good staff.All the reception staff were excellent,helpful & very approachable.
Overall our experience in the park was very positive.Our accomodation was excellent & the numerous activities & facilities on site & very close by,more than kept the children entertained.Be aware though that the dreaded mosquitos were in abundance & also that there is no air conditioning which left the bedrooms feeling a little uncomfortable at night.A good tip is to take towels with you because the towel pack provided is not adequate to get you through an entire week.
Near to the park,in Nijverdal,there is a good selection of restaurants.We had good meals there in Budde Bistro,De Hooischuur pancake restaurant & in Dynasty Chinese Restaurant.
The beautiful Salland Ridge,close to the park,is well worth a visit & some of the towns in the area that we visited include Hellendoorn, Nijverdal, Rijssen, Ommen, Giethoorn, Deventer & Zwolle.Well worth a pleasant 1 hour plus visit in Deventer is the Toy museum costing 4 euros per adult & 1 euro per child with a 1 hour/15 euros per boat trip along the canals of Geithoorn,being an absolute must do in that town.
