Now the powers that be have decided to sell the place pulling the carpet from under all our feet, disgusting treatment to all who have...

We have stayed here previously in the hotel part, this time we stayed in a chalet, it was OK for the weekend, cosy but adequate as we were busy dancing so only used the chalet to sleep in. Food was good. Our waitress was polite and very pleasant.

Only one plug socket in the room, and the towels and bedding have certainly seen better days, they were stained as well...

240 Red Hat Ladies spent a fabulous weekend at this park for our annual UK convention. It is very basic but we didn't spend a fortune! Spotlessly clean, superb food served by friendly helpful staff. Great entertainment. Couldn't ask for more.
