Another successful visit which was enjoyed by the children. Some of the instructors lacked the energy and enthusiasm in places that we experienced on our last visit. (July 2019 - Primary - Post No: 14315 )

Great activities, great staff, a really good time had by all. Only issue - coaches travelling to Norfolk and back. They were not Aylmerton's and were hot with no air con. Aylmerton coaches, whilst we were there, were modern and cool. Consider changing coach company next year. (June 2019 - Primary - Post No: 13894 )

Outstanding, fully immersive three days with wonderfully 'played' characters in role to enhance the experience. despite the weather, all activities took place and the children thoroughly enjoyed the full-on experience. Would highly recommend this to UKS2 groups as something very different and tremendously engaging. (March 2019 - Primary - Post No: 10366 )




Amazing centre. Staff are so knowledgeable so the children learn so much. Lovely comfortable place to stay. Fabulous. (February 2019 - Primary - Post No: 9503 )




We return to Aylmerton year on year and can't praise it enough. (February 2019 - Primary - Post No: 9467 )




We had an excellent day. The centre organised the trip well and were very professional. Jeremiah was the leader of our group and his knowledge and manner with the children was excellent. (February 2019 - Primary - Post No: 9445 )

Absolutely fantastic trip! The staff are amazing and make it such a memorable trip for all children. The children gained so much, both in developing personal skills, team skills and in their understanding of the environment and geographical skills. Highly recommended and can't wait for next year's trip! (October 2018 - Primary - Post No: 6747 )




The Aylmerton team work hard to create an exciting and memorable week for the children. They quickly form a good rapport with both children and staff and are responsive to different needs and interests. Their approach to safety is beyond question and school staff are able to feel confident in their hands. (October 2018 - Primary - Post No: 6697 )

Well organised, highly engaging activities with a good mix of educational and personal development activities. Staff are all energetic and motivated and ensure all children participate fully. Food and accommodation is of a high standard and I would recommend the company to any school. (September 2018 - Primary - Post No: 6303 )

The Lodge used has recently been upgraded with further improvements to showers planned. Catering very good with suitable arrangements made for specific diets. Children thoroughly enjoyed the activities planned from professional staff. A great trip for year 5. (February 2018 - Primary - Post No: 1183 )




Great centre, great staff, activities were full on with only 5 mins between activities. Next time would build in 1/2 hr break after lunch and dinner to allow meals to settle. Some rooms for leaders in the main building were through kids rooms not ok. Preferred Lodge and annex (February 2018 - Primary - Post No: 1142 )
