Winmarleigh Hall catered for all our children and staff needs, All the staff right from our PGL buddy right through to the catering staff were absolutely brilliant with us.

They worked well to meet dietary needs of pupils including a severe nut allergy. Only issue was our rooms were next to the drying room which meant we had students from another group on our corridor after lights out. This was resolved with other group agreeing to acceptable times for their group to access the room with supervision. (October 2018 - Secondary School)




Well organised. The Communication was excellent and nothing too much trouble . Our girls had a fantastic time. (October 2018 - Secondary School)
