Love the new ensuite cabins
The king ensuite cabin added that little bit of luxury whilst still being in a camping community setting - so happy we stayed there, and actually wish we’d stayed another night!

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Beautiful place, loved everything about it. Just one thing was the ensuite showers. Hardly any pressure at all and not that we needed it with the heat and humidity but the water didn’t get warm while showering.
