A lovely place to have a base in the lakes. Location is great. The site is clean and well kept. The same can be said for the lodges. The staff are really friendly and helpful and this really adds value.

The holiday was unpleasant. When i booked i was assured that there was WiFi on site and in the caravans. When we arrived there, the Wi-Fi was NOT working on site apart from at the reception area. After 10pm, the reception and security dept were not available on the phone.
My niece had bronchial exacerbation due to the stagnant dirt on carpets and sofas.
We had to terminate our holiday earlier due to poor living conditions and no telephone/network available.
