Went on Good Friday and had the best time. Danny was our instructor and he was amazing! He just made the whole experience fun and looked after one of us that was a bit scared, totally put her mind at rest. Would highly recommend, such a laugh!

My two boys (aged 13 and 9) went to the Easter kids club here yesterday. They had a fantastic time, lots of activities. They loved the assault course, kayaking and paddle board. Would definitely recommend!

Visited on a stag party for the white water rafting as a group of 8. Unbelievable experience. Our instructor Matt was fantastic, getting us in the swing of things with a good first run before really ramping it up and getting adventurous on the next few runs. The highlight being 'surfing' the raft with just 4 of us in on... More

Well I am very impressed all round. The children fancied the sky trail and a Segway trial. We went for a combination ticket that allowed them those and threw in a round of mini golf. However you look at it there were two quality options for less than fifteen pounds. We thought that the whole area was great. The high... More

Excellent place. Loads going on, really big park area with good paths for walking. Segways, high ropes and crazy golf for the kids to enjoy. Cafe was nice for a tea/coffee, can't comment on the food as we didn't eat. The whole place was spotless, don't think I saw a single piece of litter which was great. Only one improvement... More

We stayed in a pod, very clean, unfortunately the door didn't lock! The shower was nice & hot, and facilities were clean. We arrived late, but had no problems getting in. There seemed loads to do on site. If you're into water sports & outdoor sporting activities. Clean & well run facilities.

The double (twin bed) rooms are compact but clean and well maintained. I have stayed here on several occasions and it provides good quality accommodation at a great price. A varied breakfast, including cooked, cereals, fruit etc is included. It is not luxurious, but, if you need a bed for the night, and you have a car (as its off... More
