We visited Gitcombe with our two children aged 1 and 3, and - despite it being November and so cold out - we all loved it. As mentioned elsewhere the facilities are brilliant - we could pretty much drop the kids off in the soft play area and read a book - and the 3 year old loved the indoor pool. We also did a number of gentle day trips, and although the lanes to get there are quite rural it is close to lots of places which are worth visiting.
Peter and Joanne had recently taken over Gitcombe when we got there, and they were really helpful. It was obvious how much they love the place, and that enthusiasm really does rub off - we'll go again.
