Fantastic venue and enthusiastic staff. (October 2019 - Primary - Post No: 16886 )




Good PGL experience but 4 stars rather than 5 due to accommodation in the manor house making it really hard to monitor children. (October 2019 - Primary - Post No: 16698 )




The pupils had an amazing time and came back more confident and with greater resilience. (October 2019 - Primary - Post No: 16536 )




It offered a fantastic experience for our children and allowed us to build relationships with them in this early part of the school year. (October 2019 - Primary - Post No: 16378 )

Stunning setting and well-equipped site. Not all PGL activities available. 1 Year since opening - staff are enthusiastic and helpful. New safety equipment has been introduced on this site, e.g. for climbing wall, the impact of this was that children had more opportunities to climb than previously. Staff were aware of former feedback from our school and responded directly to it. (July 2019 - Primary - Post No: 14487 )




Fantastic activities and great staff. Another brilliant year! (July 2019 - Primary - Post No: 14318 )

Could do with sorting their communication skills and also its second year in a row that weve had toilet/water problems. (July 2019 - Primary - Post No: 14136 )

The site is quite new and this is clear in the high quality of activities on offer. The staff were very professional and helpful throughout. In fact, they couldn't do enough for us. The only reason I haven't given 5 stars is that I felt there could have been more toilets and showers available to the children who were staying in tents. There were 5 showers for boys and the same for girls and these were shared with another school so in all there were about 150 children using them. It was not too bad but did mean that we had to stagger the children's showering times! (June 2019 - Primary - Post No: 12808 )

Our school went when it had been open for one term. For the seasoned adults have attended many PGL trips there were some gaps but none that were detrimental to the children's experience and enjoyment. We have booked to go back in 2020 (May 2019 - Primary - Post No: 12290 )




Superb staff and positive atmosphere - they could not have been more helpful in supporting our aims (May 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 12029 )

Great experience from the very first moments you arrive. Lovely guide who met us everyday and before each activity so we didn't have to worry about everything. Great experience. (May 2019 - Primary - Post No: 11884 )




A well organised trip that pupils really enjoyed and gained a lot from. (March 2019 - Primary - Post No: 10686 )

Well organised and effecient (October 2018 - Primary - Post No: 7223 )




We had such an exciting and full on week. The children absolutely loved the activities (especially the zip wire and giant swing). The surroundings were beautiful as well as the buildings. The food was of high quality with lots of choice. The only issue we found was having 40 children staying in the manor as the rooms were separated by many corridors and fire doors- with adult rooms sometimes quite a way from the children. The rooms were lovely though. All staff were accommodating and friendly. (October 2018 - Primary - Post No: 6860 )
