Went away with my sister for a week without the parents. Have been going to PGL for 5 years now so I know what its all about. Have been to Hillcrest, Beam house, Lidington, Boreatton park, Tregoyd house and Osmington bay which I have been too three times. Accommodation was great, big rooms so lots of space for you to...

The accommodation was excellent, the food was fantastic (it’s going to take us all a few weeks to work off the pounds), the activities kept the kids thoroughly entertained and provided them with experiences that they would never have dreamt possible. Finally a massive thank you to the instructors. Every activity we did was extremely professionally managed, they handled the... More

I came here about 4-5 years ago as a parting of ways trip with my primary school (weddington primary school) at the end of year 6. It was a fantastic time. The activities are great and the staff are wonderful and kind. The food there is lovely and at night its easy to sleep (as long as no one hits... More

We have recently returned from a residential at Boreatton Park taking 60 Year 5 children, in which the children had the best time ever. Every member of staff we spoke to were helpful, very informative but most of all superb with the children. I would certainly recommend it for a school residential. Thank you PGL!

PGL Boreatton park,, fantastic, what a great experience. All the children we took away last week haven't stoped talking about Parents Get Lost, absolute brilliant, the staff were professional and couldn't do enough to make our experience perfect. The children did lots of activities and all came away six inches taller and full of confidence. A special mention to Christopher... More

Took a group here, it soon became apparent that most of the staff turned up for activities stinking of booze, some seamed still drunk or very hungover. Very noisy site so very little sleep. Not suitable for young children to be around, won't ever be returning to this site as totally not appropriate. When mentioned to reception they didn't seem... More

Boreatton Park is the largest of the PGL centres (therefore arguably the best facilities in 250 acres of parkland) with over 1,000 people on site dependent on the season (additional tents in the summer). Therefore the Canteen can get busy at times but with 180 staff to look after everyone, the family stay really exceeded our expectations as running the... More

Boreatton Park is set in beautiful grounds there is a wide range of activities available. The children loved abseiling, zip wiring, rafting, leaping for the trapeze and many other activities. The accommodation was warm and clean, everyone found something to eat at every meal and there was plenty of food available. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

At PGL, it was great. I made lots of new friends, participated in some AMAZING activities and the staff were funny and kind. The thing was, the water activity staff were pretty mean and made us pull the heavy boat up the muddy hill without helping! And they acted like it was EASY. The facilities for the activities were brilliant... More

This has the potential to be amazing as the centre is set in a huge, picturesque forest with lakes etc. In reality, it's tired and unloved. Of course it's dirty - it's a forest - but the kayak area is literally carpeted in goose poo. Barely a poo-free inch on which to set your bag down! Bins overflowing, abandoned rolls... More
