This is a real island in the middle of a water-skiing lake. Its quirky and fun yet peaceful and relaxing all in the same breath! Fabulous for group bookings. One side of the lake is Hardwick Water Sports and the other side is Waterside Therapy Rooms. You can fish from the island, chill out in the hot tub or *party in The Wonky Bar. There are 8 double bedrooms (6 can be made up as twins) plus an Epic Dorm Room designed NOT just for kids!  The 8th room, with sofa bed currently doubles as an extra sitting room and has a lovely little roof terrace off of it.

Please note that the prices are based on 14 people for a minimum 3 night stay. Additional guests are charged from £200/person/stay. Two designated drivers for the boats are required, must be over 25 & hold a valid car driving licence.

You can swim in the lake next door in season but not in the lake the island sits in as it is a waterskiing lake.

"Wow, wow, wow. I knew it would be good, but my expectations were exceeded. This place is so special. The grounds are kept to perfection, the decor is fabulous and to a high spec. You have everything you need on the island. It is perfectly catered to everyone and has countless added touches. It was the perfect place to celebrate my 30th birthday with all my closest friends and family across the Easter weekend and I couldn’t have asked for a better place. To top it all off, the hosts could not be any kinder or any more helpful. They were the cherry on top of it all. I will absolutely be re-booking!"
