Took the grand children there, weather was nice, there's lots of different activities to do once there, further to this there are some nice pubs nearby and the visitor centre is set right next to one of the lakes.

Wakeboarding, lake swimming, zorbing, waterskiing ... the list goes on; there's so much to do, if you're staying nearby it's worth a second visit. Great cafe, fun activity centres and has something for all ages. Car park should be free, there's enough pay activities to justify that, i did find that irksome. Overall, highly recommended

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
