Very friendly welcome with great home cooked meals available. The roast beef was fantastic. Showers are hot, facilities very clean and it was wonderful to be on grass. The atmosphere was so warm and we loved staying here.

Excellent small budget park. Very friendly owners, unique shop and cafe and great showers.
