The double (twin bed) rooms are compact but clean and well maintained. I have stayed here on several occasions and it provides good quality accommodation at a great price. A varied breakfast, including cooked, cereals, fruit etc is included. It is not luxurious, but, if you need a bed for the night, and you have a car (as its off... More

We booked on the Skytrail - a great day out for the kids, but not for the fainthearted, make sure that your kids like heights!! Not for everyone, I took the plunge with my two 8 yr old twin boys, but one of them did not like it (neither did I), whilst the other revelled in the adventure, fortunately another... More

We stayed there for a few nights in 2015. The place is friendly, small rooms' very clean and friendly. Quite a few activities are available, but watching folk on the river is entertaining enough. Very cheap, exçellent value.

Booked a Wowcher for an afternoon of White Water Rafting. Was absolutely fantastic, very fun and interactive. The staff (especially Danny) were absolutely brilliant and accommodating for first timers. Top tips: Remember a towel (or two) Most of the year it's going to be cold, so be prepared. To be honest it wasn't as bad as I thought- mainly hands... More

Stayed the one night. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Room was a bit on the small size with 2 x single beds but they were quite comfortable. Open style wardrobe & shelves, TV (small), tea & coffee making. Bathroom, again on the small side but had a shower, sink & toilet. Water was really nice and hot and instant.... More

My son had a party for his 10th birthday. So 7 kids and 3 adults enjoyed 2 fun filled hours. So much so my Hubby has asked if he can go again next year for his 50th! The terrain is mixed, the obstacles are great and the variety of games well thought out. All had an amazing time.

Excellent afternoon with Ricky who was fantastic. We were a family group (14, 20, 21 boys, Mum and Dad) and he pitched it just right for us. We got soaked, had plenty of thrills, laughed a lot and no-one was thrown out (which we much appreciated) and we all felt exhilarated afterwards. We have a great set of photos and... More
