Arrived Friday evening to a delightfully situated five bedroom detached individually designed house on the edge of a lake. Fist impressions were beautifully located,however,on closer examination there were a few cobwebs around window frames and entrance to property. The video showed a large barbecue on the lower decking area,which would have been great. Reliable informed on the Sunday that the... More

A recent visit for breakfast with friends & their one year old. Excellent breakfast menu, lots of different choices and the staff were very happy to accommodate variations. The food was served swiftly & all the meals came out hot & at the same time. Coffee was excellent too. A very enjoyable experience which I am sure will be repeated... More

Lovely place on a sunny day. There is a man made beach on the edge of a large lake with rowing boats and pedalos for hire. £8 for 30 mins) Snack bar was shut so had to go right round to the main building. Lifeguard on duty was quick off the mark when a young toddler fell over in the... More

On arrival the impression when coming off the round about into the Gateway Centre is that the area is scruffy and the Visitor Centre car park is riddled with pot holes and when wet partly flooded, little regard for visitors parking here. Don't want to be too negative as we have been a few times but would like to see... More

A little pricey perhaps but you really feel you are eating something that is freshly made and the service is attentive. Will definitely be returning. A great place to start the walk with a coffee and to end the walk with lunch.

I recently returned to the Water Park Cafe with friends on our Harley Davidsons. Although we only wanted coffee the staff were friendly and helpful. The food is to a good standard although on this occasion we only stopped for coffee. It was a great end to a lovely sunday afternoon ride, having coffee and sitting outside watching over the...

A nice area to go for a walk. Loads of wildlife for all to see as well as a cafe and pub. Could do with more paths cleared as we went round the lake and had to turn and come back as we could not get through. There were tall white plants which I think may be hogweed. Needs to... More

Had lunch there, about average. Made a 7 km walk around the nortern part. Looks interesting on the map, in reality you see nothing because of fences and vegetation. Complete waste of time.
