Friendly staff, lots of space for adults to sit, as well as lots of things for the kids to do. Very clean and decent food. Lovely view of the lake for when you're not watching the kiddies!

We decided to let the kids have a couple of hours of play whilst the weather wasn't great (which happens!) and we sat down and had some light lunch and a couple of coffees in the lounge area looking over the lake.

My two grandchildren loved it. Worth the money. Clean and spacious. Allowed to take dogs into the cafe area but not the play area. Husband sat at one side of the barrier and myself on the other. Well worth a visit on a rainy day.
