We spent the early afternoon of at NDAC. We started with an hour long session on segways which was so much fun, our guide was great and made it very enjoyable. We then zip wired across the water which was a great thrill, however it didn't go as fast as I imagined it would. We finished on the giant swing... More

Having booked this two night stay for my grandchildren to have a half term treat both my daughter and I knew it would be basic accommodation. However,we felt it would be fun for the children to stay in a wigwam/ pod. I should point out we are regular campers so we are used to basic amenities. Well nothing could have... More

We stayed here on Saturday night and had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. We had the deluxe wigwam, number 8, with a hot tub and this pod had everything you would need: kitchen equipment, fridge, heat, robes, TV, chocolates and a bottle of prosecco. The shower was great too plenty of hot water and was powerful. Great view from our wigwam... More

I saw a 2 night stay in a Standard Wigwam on offer through Groupon and decided to go for it. I was pleasantly surprised that there was availability over Valentines Day during the Half-term and booked right away. Upon arrival, the site doesn't look like much (It is an old quarry site) and as people have already mentioned, it does... More

The wigwam was absolutely beautiful and cosy as anything. It was clean, organised and had everything we needed in there. The heating was on when we got in there so it was lovely and warm. The hot water was hot straight away. There was a hob which we didn't know about which should be listed on the website clearly so... More

Just used a Groupon to get a cheaper ticket to do the Big Zip Wire (these are on Groupon quite often) and had great fun with my son zip wiring across the quarry! Great fun and fab staff! Will come again! We tried the cafe too and had a yummy lunch. We could also watch the activities whilst eating which... More
