"The perfect "Hideaway""
We absolutely loved this holiday with our 3 boys, Jack (8) and twins George & Harry (3). The location of the "Hideaway" was great and the caravan was excellent, had everything we needed. The Wild Duck site itself is lovely and a lot of work has been carried out over recent years, including the outdoor pool which is brilliant if the weather is good and we found the new "treehouse" which the boys loved. The booking itself was efficient and very friendly, lovely people to deal with. Want to return in the future.

"A great little home from home"
We stayed here with the two children, 7 and 9, and it was a great little home base for all of us. It is quite luxurious and definitely more of a 'house' than a caravan. It was good to have t… More

"Home from home"
Stayed for three nights at the hide away with partner and son, loved the position of the caravan, great space outside, plenty of tables and chairs, sun shone through the pine trees onto the patio out front. Inside was a well equiped kitchen with a welcome pack. Beds very comfy, had all those extras that make a stay home from home.
My daughter came up for dinner one evening and cooked a moroccan stew, was lovely to eat with patio open and watch the squirrels and rabbits.
Excellent facilities at the wild duck, we hired bikes for the day. Lots of places to visit, could have done with a week there. thank you we will be back x
It's lovely to hear you enjoyed your stay, it would be a pleasure to welcome you back any time. Best wishes, Trish and Marcus.
