    “Our family of 17 found the Roundhouse very comfortable indeed, plenty of space, good facilities and an excellent location for travelling out and about.”

    The on-site swimming pool was a great hit with our family it was superb. We felt that the refuse arrangements could have been organised better,but we had a super stay here and would definitely return!
