Excellent place to relax and unwind. Most shops located close to the village. Spoilt for choice. Apartment was spot on and clean. Good range of cafe and food places. Subtropical Place was brilliant.

possibly the best centre parcs in the uk. Try and get a lodge close to the lake and everything is within ten minutes walking distance

Absolutely no complaints about anything. Fantastic villa in an amazing location. Facilities wonderful especially the pool and Aqua Sana. Staff unfailingly helpful. I could probably find things to nitpick about but what's the point when the overall experience is so good!!!
