Loved the views from the balcony and enjoyed watching the water sports. Nice to find a property that welcomed dogs, it was well equipped and comfortable. The home felt a little impersonal and unloved, but dog friendly properties can't be expected to have fluffy carpets and white sofas! Overall we had a great week and would stay again. A note on the water park in general, we were shocked at the amount of fast traffic (50mph speed limit) and heavy lorries (from the quarries) on roads where families were cycling and crossing. A lower speed limit or safe pedestrian crossings are needed before there is an accident.

We had a great family lunch on the Sunday where we put the tables outside and twenty of us sat down to a buffet lunch in the sunshine overlooking Isis Lake
