Summertime at Another Place means getting outside with the family and we will help you make the most of the weather and try something new.


During the holidays we have lots going on to keep the whole family entertained; try a kayaking lesson with the children, or if alone time is needed, we have supervised activities in the Kids’ Zone so you can make time for a treatment.
