Super setting - 2 lovely lakes to walk around or fish in. Lots of nearby walks for dogs. Nice bar area and little shop on site (limited range of stock). Tennis courts, small childrens play area.Outdoor pool very clean and are in process of building changing rooms.Staff very friendly.Only negative is that shower block a bit grubby when we went.
