However the staff were amazing and convinced me I would be in safe hands and... More

I would love to give this place five stars. The White water rafting was great fun, a proper work out and a completely different experience to normal weekend activities. The instructors seemed sound, they protected the more nervous and kept the thing moving. One major downside. The trent is not a clean river, and over a week after visiting I... More

This is not a review of the hotel but is a review of the newly opened for 2015 family adventure park. The adventure park includes a 3 storey Sky trail. The bottom floor is for toddlers. My 2 year old loved it. Whilst my wife supervised our youngest I took our 8yr old girl up on the higher levels. We... More

We came here on the morning of my sisters wedding for the high ropes and had a fab time. It was £6 for an hour which we thought was good value. The height restrictions were quite low which meant the 4 and 5 year old were able to go on with an adult. There is a little version for the... More

Not visited here for a couple of years until yesterday. New cafe and crazy golf and climbing facilities look really good. Settled with going for a walk as i have teenagers! Nice to watch people in canoes, etc., but after an hour we were ready to go.

The unsafe instructors dunked the stag under for far too long and he was in shock from this. I wouldnt send my worst enemy here. it was not safe. I regret every penny... More
