Great facilities however no limits or curfews put on other groups. I did have to intervene when scouts were running through our camp, and noise at night was a problem. (September 2021 - Secondary School)




Very well run facility with very, very helpful staff. (February 2020 - Primary School)




(January 2020)




(July 2019 - Secondary School)




Great facility. Helpful Staff. (July 2019 - Secondary School)




Excellent centre but very over crowded. Over 450 children on the site at the same time which limited the availability of some facilities. However and excellent site. (June 2019 - Secondary School)

(May 2019 - Secondary School)
