Meet Us

Contact us by phone, email or online.

In reception we have a dedicated lounge area where you can enjoy complimentary tea and coffee or take a short while to relax in front of the TV or with a game of Wii tennis and snack upon drinks and treats from our tuck shop. Spares can be purchased from our Pro Shop. There is a comfortable area just outside the lounge area if you fancy a bit of fresh air or need to smoke of a cigarette or two.

The Parking on site can accommodate even tour buses and is subject to availability, however when we’re full we can also recommend some sweet spots close by.
