What we offer

Our changing room area next to the activity pool is the perfect place for your group to base themselves with plenty of space to change and access to lockers.  

Nearby the two activity pools offer waterfalls, a cave, spouts and a lazy river for your group to burn off steam. The waterslides are also available to groups that book in advance (children must be over 1.2 metres tall to ride on them).  

Some of our thermal pools are also available to groups and we have educational materials to explain about the water, where it's from and how it's treated.

We also have plenty of large grassed picnic areas that are the perfect place for your group to enjoy packed lunches or snacks.
