A wonderful, magical place. The perfect place to go to forget the daily hustle and bustle and stresses of life. The facilities are great, toilet areas clean and the little shop has everything you need. Already looking to book again next year :)

As campsite facilities go these are right up there. The showers I’d liken to a good hotel, toilets good. We got a perfect gravel lakeside pitch for our camper, we couldn’t ask for more. Why no 5 stars.. well it lacked any real atmosphere, one...More
