With its own location nestled in the Essex countryside, Five Lakes presents an opportunity to experience our All-Inclusive Breaks in a unique setting.

Recommend

Five Lakes far surpassed our expectations. The entertainments team could have been performing on a West End stage. An extra mention for Mick Dundee and Gemma who were good all rounders, funny but with excellent singing voices. Would really recommend and we will return.

There is so much value packed into your All Inclusive short break
