I took my 7 year old here for a week, he had an amazing time, we arrived at 4 and we where greeted by a pgl member that showed us to our room. We then meet out the front for a quick guided tour, you are given a sheet with your weeks activities on them and when you have your... More

We had a great time with our 2 young children. The reason it falls short of full marks is the chalet. We paid £300 more than the last reviewer and we allocated a chalet with 2 sets of bunk beds, this was bearable, but the lack of a table, chair and really any space at all made it a difficult...

We got a last minute deal for a week, where the children went for free! We went with no great expectations, thinking we'd give it a go and have a bit of fun together as a family. It turned out to be a brilliant place. The staff were always enthusiastic, encouraging and never seemed grumpy - despite the weather! The... More

We had a wonderful 4 night stay. On arrival we had a lovely personal welcome with one of the team who went through everything we would need to know during the week, showed us around the site and then to our room. We had a lovely range of activities on our schedule and even though we were not put with... More

Went with my husband and kids (8 and 13) to PGL at Barton Hall for 4 nights and loved it. You are placed in a group of up to 12 people and given a schedule of activities plus some 'flexitime' which are free sessions in which you can swim,watch a movie or go into Torquay, which is lovely. The staff... More

Barton Hall was really well placed for visiting tourist attractions round South Devon. The accommodation and food were as other customers had accurately reviewed - plentiful school canteen type food and the rooms were basic. My bathroom was at least tiled and had a bath mat (children's bathroom had neither) but did have the dreaded "pube ball" in the shower... More
