Rated 5 out of 5 by Josh Reeve on 28th June 2019

Perfect setting for young families, basic but nice pool facilities 15-20 mins drive from every attraction, good bar and great views. Couldn't recommend it highly enough. Our kids are 4 and 6 months and everything has been set out great for us. Will be returning

Rated 3 out of 5 by David Green on 25th July 2019

Great place and the staff try hard but they didn't really get it right as much as they should. Several issues that were dealt with and I would give them another chance and probably book again but far from 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Karen Wilson on 17th June 2019

We bought paddle boarding sessions for our Nieces, they loved it. It was an hour session, wet suits and footwear was provided, the instructor was great. I would thoroughly reccomend it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mike Mortimore on 23rd June 2019

Aria call centre messed up my ferry booking so lost 1/2 day's holiday. Ferries from Portsmouth running late finally arrived 10 p.m. picked up key from the bar. Premium cottage very nicely located on the lake where I normally fish from but No fishing allowed now. If I'd known this in advance I wouldn't have come & now looking at cancelling my September booking. I'm really disappointed in how the owners have let this happen. What was the specimen lake is just a heap of mud. The pleasure lake is now destroyed with noisy kids in kayaks. I'm sorry but very unlikely to return now. Full report on Trip Advisor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gary Ireland on 16th July 2019

Apart from the very long delay on getting into the caravan, the site is a wonderful place for a quiet relaxing holiday. The camp shop could be open longer and stock more goods.
