A quiet night in…

Kid’s asleep. Exhausted after a fun-filled day? If you’d rather have a quiet night in, and let someone else do the cooking, we have hot take away meals that are available for purchase on weekends and school holidays from the restaurant for guests to take back to their cabins, tents and vans. Check out our daily menu.

Guests are advised that bistro bookings for weekend lunch and dinner are advised – please call 07 54471333 or see our friendly team at reception.
