We (Peter & Michele Thompson) live at the house Queensland, situated to the left of the entrance of the park and we own the business. In 1997 we planted over 4,000 trees. These have since matured into beautiful woodland creating a peaceful habitat for nature and a relaxing location for many to enjoy. The park has evolved from a 5 pitch touring caravan certified site to two sites, with the second a 10 pitch touring caravan park and recently we are please to announce that we have gained planning permission to introduce just 10 luxury holiday lodges available to buy.
Over the years the park has been sympathetically designed to support and encourage a variety of wildlife including deer, foxes, rabbits, hares and many different types of birds, butterflies and dragonflies.

Fishing
Our beautiful coarse fishing lake is set in lush natural woodland that was originally planted in 1997 and is considered by those who have fished here as a bit of a hidden gem. Located next to the lodge park, our fishing lake which was established and stocked almost 20 years ago, is located in a peaceful and restful setting.

The large ornamental fishing pond, stocked for coarse fishing, is located on the lodge park itself and is for the exclusive enjoyment and use of the owners, friends and family of the lodges.
