Downe is an amazing place for school groups of all ages. If you haven't already been - you should! (July 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 14320 )




We had an amazing stay. The communication before our visit was excellent and the staff were knowledge and helpful during our stay. The set up for the tented stay was really good, everything you needed for your stay was provided. The catering was excellent, especially Steph. The only downside was that the toilet block was being refurbished. The portaloos had not been empty and were pretty unpleasant, but this is something that the staff apologised for and won't be a problem when they are updated.

I did feel that they were tight on the number of instructors but they were mainly engaged with the students. The explanation of some activities took a long time in some cases which meant a long waiting time and one go per student. (September 2018 - Secondary - Post No: 6415 )

Staff were great with the children and helpful when we had a medical emergency. The camp fire was fantastic! (July 2018 - Primary - Post No: 5013 )
