We liked the atmosphere of this secluded little barn near Barns Green. The food was decent too, although very little choice for vegetarian (let alone dairy-Free). The place is very quaint and the restaurant is child-friendly thanks to the nice staff. We won't be back solely because there is very little that I can eat there (vegetarian, but with problems...

Came here with my family for a Saturday morning brekkie and it was lovely. Cosy and warm, friendly staff, fresh, tasty food served efficiently. Love this place, off the beaten track but worth the detour.

My husband and I had a lovely walk round the lake. The views are amazing, Plenty to chose from the lunch menu. Food good but quite expensive for what it was. Service excellent and would go back again

Nice place tucked away, good service and home made food. We will definitely be going again in the summer so we can enjoy the view from the outside eating area

One of the best we've been to. Excellent facilities block, very warm showers. Cafe on site serving drinks and good food, much better than you'd find on any other site we've been to. Lovely location with countryside walks on and off site. Convenient for the coast. Good village pub and shop in walking distance. And best of all it's open... More

Pleasant camping in different fields. Walks on tap. Good facilities. Lots of fishing people. Welcoming cafe/bar - food OK usual prices - cakes smashing - seating inside with wood burning stoves or outside looking at the lake & surroundings. No closing of access overnight. Bit of aeroplane racket. Smashing pub just up the road - lovely ambience and serves good... More
