Rated 5 out of 5 by Nathan Deere on 10th July 2019

Great location. Not much in regards to structured activities for under 5's. But lots of opportunity and locations to make your own fun with them. Lovely forest walks. Leisure pool is small which is ideal for keeping an eye on the little ones in 0.6m kids pool. Staff are really polite and happy to help but service can be slow because of the demand. Pods are great size. Perfect budget get away!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Helen Creber on 21st June 2019

You need to join Boundless to use facilities here. They have a pool, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi. Mixed changing rooms but all cubicles so not a problem. It can get over busy but if you pick your time carefully it makes a nice relaxing morning/afternoon. Staff are friendly in a professional way but can seem very busy rather than warm. Facilities are always very clean and well maintained.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Peter Middleton on 26th June 2019

Great facilities. Nice swimming pool and play area's for younger and older children. The food in the cafe was really good but a shame it took nearly an hour to arrive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lynne Hughes on 9th July 2019

Safe and fun! Lots of things for children. Woodland walking or Wild Boar hunting as our grandson prefers call it. Super safe pool with no area too deep for parents to stand, keeping children safe.Playground, baby rabbits in the early summer, zorbing, archery - it goes on!Enjoy :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by Hilary Jenkins-Spangler on 25th July 2019

Carvery was extremely underwhelming! Whitemead has so much promise, but never fails to disappoint....it's a convenient location to take my elderly mum, but I think I'm done paying for overpriced, barely edible food. The waitresses are always very pleasant.....
