We know that for many of you a family holiday means spending a lot of time together and a little time apart. And that while for some of you ‘holiday’ means having a massage in Swim Club, for others it means hanging out in trees and making new friends.

Children’s spaces

Our secure buildings within the grounds, include separate spaces for different age groups. These areas are suited to a variety of activities including games, arts and crafts, and camp fire cooking.

Indoor and outdoor activities make the most of our environment. Helping the children to hone their bush craft and orienteering skills whilst meeting new friends and having fun. The lake is not accessible to unaccompanied children.
