GUEST COMMENTS
The property far exceeded our expectations, the photos really do not do it justice.  Great facilities, hours of fun had by all.  We have already recommended the property to our friends and family.  T N Bolton

Thank you for  a wonderful holiday.  The kids loved the pool, indoor and outdoor play areas, and so did the adults when the kids went to bed!  The indoor play area was great as the little ones could play in a secure area whilst under the watch of the adults whilst playing snooker etc.  Teenagers made great use of the TV lounge too.  Hope to see you again.  S P

Great location with lots to do.  Swimming pool was a bit hit and wonderful to find quiet corner somewhere to relax.  The gite was very spacious and had everything that we required. Loved it.  T L
