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

We’ve been to other providers but this centre is quite “simply the best” aged between 9 and 11 and from the beginning all the group (adults and kids) were treated with respect and made to feel very welcome. The children, once settled into the accommodation met our Group Leader (Ethel) and through out the holiday she was superb, keeping everyone... More

Here at 19th Rochdale brownies we couldn't fault a thing at PGL. The guides and groupees are all about the children and take ease with relating to them and challenging them. All the activities showed huge safety precautions taken seriously which was comforting to all our leaders. The food had a large variety for all types of eater and cold... More

I'd give this a 'poor' or 'terrible' rating to be honest (with my protective hat on) but I am sure my 10 year old son had a great time and would give it a much higher score based on the fun factor so I've averaged it out. He wasn't on a school trip, he was on a multi activity holiday,... More
