The park is open all throughout the year and is a family and pet friendly destination, with plenty on offer for anyone staying on site. There are 60 pitches for touring caravans and 9 for motorhomes, all hard standing ‘super pitches’ meaning guests can enjoy maximum comfort and convenience during their stay.

The park has everything on site that guests need to have a relaxing stay, including a café – Mrs B’s Lakeside Kitchen – and bar where there is live entertainment provided every weekend. There is also entertainment provided across the park during the day, from brass bands to puppet shows for children and many other fun and exciting events.
