Lovely quiet park, stunning views, not as large as the park we normally go to, and no takeaways on site, but we knew this when we booked so not a major problem. Staff were friendly and approachable, facilities were clean and grounds well maintained. Accommodation was nice and clean, we have already booked for next year.

Lovely park and location we had a great time.
Only 2 small moans, firstly our boiler packed up twice which is no joke in November but fixed quickly both times.
Also the “offers” on the app are useless as they don’t work, we ate in the bar every night and every time the promised 20% off wasn’t recognised by the app - useless!

Fab get away location was amazing and right on lake windemere, only downside was the lodge we booked was at the top of a hill which wasn't great for one of my older guests, didn't use the onsite pub for takeaway food as their app basically had all the food as out of stock, had a lovely walk around the whole site and the views from the marina were amazing.
