This place is excellent for those who has a camper van. Surprisingly this is not as expensive as it looks and they offer great values for extended stay and also the Spa pool is large and reasonably priced.

Nestled down a quiet valley, they have several pools at different temperatures to suit everyone. Awesome slides and an area for kids, as well as a few private pools. Always a favourite.

I really enjoyed here... there's a number of different pools to relax in. I think it's an added bonus they have private spas at no extra cost. If is a really good relaxing activity... they also have water slides which are fun. I would definitely go back.

Was a cold raining night, but was bliss sitting in the hot pools. Lots of families and what a way to unwind at the end of the day. Nice staff, friendly and helpful. We were locals so got tbe discount so was excellent value for money.
