The cinema room and games room are a great addition. The pool gets deep very quickly so not sure it's ideal for little kids who can't swim well. Plenty of places to go nearby but you definitely need a car. The welcome pack is a nice touch too.

Went with 4 adults and 5 children plenty for the kids with pool and beach close by. Would recommend as owners extremely helpful when kettle broke and WiFi didn't work. Thanks again for a lovely time.
