Great venue with plenty of safe space to give children a chance to explore safely. Extensive range of onsite adventurous activities (including water based)which made programme planning easy. (September 2021 - Primary School)




(September 2021 - Primary School)




Great activities and leaders. Accomodation is basic but adequate. Children enjoyed this residential especially the water activities on the lake and the open-air swimming pool. (July 2021 - Primary School)




an absolutely stunning location which allowed our city children to safely 'roam' the countryside with a degree of freedom. lodges were great, including good cooking facilities. The option of self catering enabled us to bring this visit in at a cost accessible to our parents (and much less than other providers who insist on meal packages) (July 2021 - Primary School)

Although the accommodation was tired, all the staff were amazing. They made our adventure enjoyable and unforgettable. While we were there a child fell over and injured themselves. The response was quick, child friendly and professional. We will be back!! (October 2019 - Primary School)

(August 2018 - Secondary School)




Great way of welcoming students into year 7 and for tutors to get to know their tutees. Some facilities (showering etc.) are very basic, and would be good if more privacy could be offered to staff in each lodge (e.g. seperate bathroom/shower) (July 2018 - Secondary School)




brilliant place, so much to do. (June 2018 - Primary School)




well maintained camping field and facilities (April 2018 - Secondary School)
