THE FOOD:

The lakeside setting gives a lovely feeling of getting away from it all and with three dining options you really don't need to leave the site on your weekend getaway.

The Brasserie offers locally sourced and seasonally inspired dishes served each evening or, for a more relaxed option cosy up in the Lounge & Bar. Great for casual or pre-dinner drinks and light bites - you can dine alfresco on the lakeside terrace when the weather is good too.

Junior dined in the The Old Boathouse - with pub grub classics, steaks and burgers and a great children's menu. The Old Boathouse is relaxed and the perfect place to unwind with the family - as there is a small playpark outside the front too. The home-cooked meals are just the ticket after a day walking around the lakes. Booking is recommended at busy times.
