Our rugby team of boys aged 12 and 13 went for a team bonding day and what a brilliant day they all had. The staff were friendly and very helpful. All boys enjoyed themselves with some of them getting over their fears of heights doing the high ropes. We gave the centre a brief that we were looking for activities for team bonding, communication and individual challenge and they did not let us down. Highly recommended to any one who wants some fresh air and fun. We will be back

Attended for a team building day for my sons under 13s rugby team. I can honestly say all the lads really enjoyed it and to see them coming out of their shells was really worthwhile. Evidence of training and leadership from the instructors was absolutely brilliant. Would definitely recommend it to any teams or groups who are after any team building.

On September 23rd Stanley Head attended Greenways Primary School to carry out an archery lesson. My son hade to experience the below actions from a member of staff from Stanley Head who was supposed to be teaching him archery: 1) He and other children were told to lick the floor i.e. grass before he could continue and yes they were made to do this! 2) He and other children were told to high five a friends face so that they could be the next person to complete the archery. How dare he encourage this! this is encouraging violence between children and a child could have gotten hurt. My son and other children I spoke with felt very uncomfortable during this time and they certainly didn't enjoy what should have been a great experience for them.

10 of us stayed here in the cottage for 2 nights to celebrate a birthday! We completed 3 activities including High Ropes, Raft Building and Rifle Shooting. The activities were a lot of fun and were well organised with plenty of time to complete. Adam was our instructor and he was brilliant. He was very knowledgeable and professional, and quickly came to help one of the girls in our party, who got stuck on the high ropes course!! I would definitely recommend Stanley Head to others and will most certainly be back.

This was the first time we used Stanley Head for an outdoor team event and we shall certainly use the venue again. Great customer service throughout from the management, catering staff and the instructors. Our clients were really happy. There was a good range of team building action activities to stretch the participants and the instructors were really flexible with times and activities to ensure we achieved our objectives for the 3 days
