We stayed for 2 nights in one of the Cocoons and had a day of activities - Archery, climbing, zip wire and canoeing. Charlotte and her staff were excellent the whole way through and made us feel so welcome the whole time we were there. The cocoons were cosy and warm to stay in and the site is very well... More

took scouts here a few years back and they loved it soo much we had to go back. The facilities are brilliant for anyone who loves out doors and or team building. the staff could not be friendlier. We got so much help and encouragement. we all faced and conquered some frightening challenges. Can't wait to go again.

I took group of teenagers from different schools to Carrowmena so they could get to know each other as they were to work together as our new joint school council. The setting was perfect. Games and exercises were organised for us on our arrival. These were fun and engaging whilst also being very effective in giving each of the boys... More

I had a one night stay in a glamping cocoon followed by a day of activities. The glamping experience was great, the hut was surprisingly cosy and warm and I loved that each cocoon had its own fire pit. This was my first time kayaking and the staff member we had with us was lovely and patient, all the staff... More

Easy to find and located in a peaceful setting. We spent two nights camping in our own tents, and also did activities: archery, wall climbing and tri-stack. All of the staff were friendly, and up for a laugh. The toilets and showers were clean, and the "glitchen" had kettles, toasters and a fridge. Our stay was relaxed and would've much... More

Great facilities on site as well - nice shower room and toilets. The activities were brilliant too. Our instructors Stephen and Sarah were excellent... More
