"We have just stayed and it was perfect. Loads of space. Nice and quiet. Clean toilets and showers. Felt Covid safe. Tavern was great and staff were ace. Climbing in the quarry was really fun as was the tobogganing and frisbee golf. Thanks for opening up for families this year. It gave use the chance to get away and have a safe and fun break. Thanks"
