Booked late for a New year away with both friends and kids. Accommodation was excellent although bunk room was only big enough for 2 kids. There is a double sofa bed downstairs as the official beds 7 and 8 our 5 year old just slept on the floor in the big double room with us and a blow up bed, not ideal but better than us sleeping downstairs !!
The new year dinner was also very good and we all had a great time, this was the 1st time we had really seen in the new year with the kids (ages 10, 10 and 5) they all lasted till 1am !. Via a previous review we phoned ahead and booked the new year, thanks for the tip as otherwise we would not have got in.
The pool is great as is the bar area with games room (pool table and table tennis), there was a crazy golf and play ground to aid entertainment. There are two pubs within 40 min walk that do food we went to the boot and shoe in greystoke good food and good beer worth the walk.
