Rated 4 out of 5 by Aaron blackburn on 19th July 2019

2 good lakes, clean and tidy. Caravans/holiday homes are fine, bar and food are adequate. They have entertainment. The pools are only available during certain hours of the day and close early. Could do with a pool table in there. Fishing was good

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lynda Butler on 6th July 2019

It was a lovely park. Our lodge was delightful. We like space so always go bigger than maybe necessary but we weren't disappointed. We had a breakfast and a dinner in the restaurant/ entertainment centre. Both were very tasty. We will definitely stay here again hopefully in the same lodge so as to avoid disappointment which can sometimes happen when returning to a place you really liked.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Peter Phelps on 24th May 2019

We stayed for five days in a Lodge, the Lodge was modern and spacious. There are two swimming pools, one which is outdoor. Two large fishing lakes, a clubhouse and small amusement arcade. The staff were very friendly and polite. It was very quiet and relaxing, what let the site down was lots of cigarette ends outside both Lodges which we rented. None of us are smokers

Rated 3 out of 5 by Franki Oxlade on 18th July 2019

Disappointed with caravan booked through 2c holidays... won't be using them again!!! Great swimming pools although you still have to pay even if you're not swimming. Very little in shop so advise to shop before you arrive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tracey Watling on 20th June 2019

Our 4 day stay was fantastic. Staff very friendly and helpful. Toilet and shower blocks very clean. The outdoor pool was 35's. Lovely and warm. New indoor pool was immaculate. Going back in July for 8nights. Didn't want to leave. Brilliant place for a holiday. Well done Carlton Meres.
