Fairwood Lakes (www.fairwoodlakes.com) is a very busy family holiday park next to Longleat in Wiltshire. We have a busy season and have sadly just lost one of our senior staff members and we are looking for a replacement for the busy season until the end of September. We may extend this as we open all year round if the right candidiate proves an asset to the park.
