The site is adjacent to our beautiful woodland and lakes which are available exclusively for the use and enjoyment of Caravan and Motorhome Club members. We have spent the past 25 years creating a natural wildlife haven around our ponds and lakes with plantings of azaleas, camellias, rhododendrons and conifers. In spring the woodland floor is carpeted with snowdrops, native daffodils and primroses followed by bluebells and red campion. For the avid bird watcher our resident wild birds include kingfisher, buzzard, kestrel, long tailed tit, tree-creeper, nuthatch and skylark to mention just a few.
