This spacious, modern, immaculate accommodation is an ideal base to explore the lake district, Morcambe and Lancaster. It has everything you need for a relaxing holiday and I would definitely go back again. Whilst there is a restaurant/bar offering good food, there is not a shop on site which would be helpful, but there are supermarkets a short drive away.
Thank you for a lovely review.
It would be great if there was a shop on the Leisure Village and the lack of one isnt ideal, however Tesco and Booths are within a 5 minute drive and both will do deliveries to the Leisure Village. Several of our guests have found it convenient to place an online order timed to arrive shortly after their own arrival.
