NewarkGBFamily (the eldest child is aged 5 - 14)
Overall a lovely holiday, caravan was clean but despite being a “wide” caravan was very tight for space. Restaurant has changed since our last visit and in our opinion for the worse. Meals are average and the wait was extensive! Also having to book for use of facilities (which are incredibly limited for under 16yr olds) limits your ability to use them immensely.
The Free WiFi advertised was appalling and non existent at the caravan.
Great stunning location, perfect to get about in the lakes.
