“We were all really impressed with the whole trip, from the booking to the preview visit, tour and facilities. I can’t understand why we haven’t been over sooner! The children are still talking about it now. The information pack was the most useful and comprehensive I have ever been sent and it was a treat to have the whole place to ourselves! So much less stressful for the staff organising it and checking on the children. As a result we all had a wonderful time.”
