Well organised Excellent range of activities. (October 2021 - Secondary School)




This is a fantastic centre to visit if you wish your class to participate in water sports. Safety is a t the forefront of all the activities and the staff have many years' experience and are very knowledgeable. From start to finish there is nothing everything is organised. (October 2021 - Primary School)

Excellent organisation. The centre were able to adapt timings without fuss so that students did not miss out on any activity after we arrived slightly late. Staff friendly and engaging. Excellent equipment and high level of instruction. Staff and students had a great time! (August 2021 - Secondary School)




There were a few issues related to food - catering staff on the first night were agency staff and not enough fish finger meals were provided, meaning some children and all staff had to eat the left over vegetarian option. Feedback given to GWC directly. (July 2021 - Primary School)

(July 2019)




(June 2019 - Primary School)




Instructors were brilliant with the children and very clear. Rooms were clean and functional. Food was ok, but portions for adults were a bit small and those with dietary needs (gluten free/dairy free) could have been catered for a bit more carefully - providing gluten free biscuits rather than just offering raisins when other children were getting biscuits would have been a nice touch and making a batch of scrambled eggs/mashed potato without milk or butter would have been appreciated.

Excellent staff, meals and activities. The centre is getting a little dated now and would benefit from a little refurbishment. However this did not detract from the enjoyment of the trip. (June 2019 - Primary School)




Excellent staff who taught the kids exceptionally well. This allowed the students to flourish in an environment other than a classroom. (June 2019 - Secondary School)
