Mermaids Lagoon is for all those seeking the Club Tropicana high-life of cocktails, sunshine and 80s glam.

The Neverwoods offers panoramic natural vistas and a place of tranquillity, nourishment and well-being in an ambient forest offering new music, arts and crafts in a no nonsense paradise celebrating good times and joy.
