Really helpful staff in the restaurant but i must addmit its not much to do there in the winter rather than summer because the swimming pool is not open in the winter and that means its not much people there in the winter.

Went here for lunch and it was outstanding for the money. Had a skillet with avocado, salad and bacon with egg. Michael Knight is the chef there now and is renowned for making great food.

Yes. There are lots of shaded areas under trees though you’ll need to push the wheelchair over some uneven grassy areas. The pool is sloped at one end with no step so you can even push the chair into shallow water. Toilets... More
