Stayed for 2 nights in April, looked for reasonable priced accomodation and this came up as a good option. Cabin was large, although just two of us it would accomodate six.Well enough equipped, good fridge, microwave and kettle. Bed was comfortable, no noise at night, so we slept well. Nowhere on site to eat and it was a fairly long...

Only thing that was laundry is not in the cabins. With park extras like tennis court, putt putt golf, jumping pillow & play equipment & games room we didn't use the pool or...

We booked a cabin for 2A and 4K. We were very happy with the cabin - more spacious than previous cabins. The tv in the main bedroom was a blessing! We liked the little touches such as milk in the fridge. The cabin was very clean. A few little negatives was that the ash tray on the patio wasn't emptied,...

We stayed in a new cabin and are very happy with the facilities. Family of 4 but there is enough room for 2 Adults and 4 kids. The park is fantastic for the kids with a pool, jumping blowup thingy, tennis court, mini golf, half court basketball and a games room. Apparently a retirement village is being built on the...

The grey cabin on their website is their best cabin and there is only one of them so don't go by their photos. Most of the cabins don't have decking (ours didn't). Apart from this the cabin itself was clean...

We initially checked into a cabin. It was 3 bedroom and in the back corner of the park. It was reasonably clean and maintained and did the job well enough. We stayed in the cabin last minute as it was pouring with rain and we had a caravan we did not want to set up in the weather. The next...

The cabins were modern and clean and well laid out. Full kitchen so you can prepare your own meals and save money. The kids loved the bouncy pillow. There is a park and swimming pool. The pool really could do with shade over some of it though. The management were very helpful and friendly. Would definately stay there again. It...

My Husband And I Stayed Overnight In A Deluxe Cabin. We were pleased with the cabin, it was very clean. The park was pretty and the managers and staff friendly and helpful. Looking around the park, the amenities were also well kept.
