Improved WIFI coming in 2017!

More details to come as it happens.

3 new shower rooms for 2016 - ready mid April
We are very proud of our Middle Oaks shower block and it's been a talking point ever since it opened in 2012. However, that does mean that our older Orchard Block has been somewhat put in the shade. So, over the winter, we'll be working on phase one of it's refurbishment, which is to build 3 completely new shower rooms. No photos yet as they are currently empty shells! Keep your eye on our Facebook page for updates.

New mini woodland walk - May 2015
