There was a lovely welcome pack when we arrived after the long journey along with plenty of information for things to do in the local area. Ruth came to clean the pool whilst we were there and was super helpful with information for Futuroscope and also with finding somewhere to replace our punctured tyre! Hopefully we will be back soon! Many Thanks Again for everything Ruth, and sorry for the delay in the review!
