All guests have full access to the communal on site facilities such as the beautiful indoor swimming pool (open 7.30am to 9.00pm during peak holiday times and 7.00am to 9.00pm off peak), sauna (sauna at a small charge) and the games-room which includes a table-tennis table, pool table, football table and numerous activities for the younger members of the group.

On brighter days, you have access to the tennis courts and pitch and putt next to the children's play area.
