This was a Christmas present from my husband, 25 clays each. Bryan was a great teacher and his passion for the sport was obvious. He was patient and helpful and we both had an excellent experience. We may well be back for some proper lessons.

We booked a couple of nights here on a whim. The mrs was struggling a little with the lockdown rules and it had took a toll on her mentally. I had worked all the way through it so I was tired also.... we needed a break. We found this place on hoseasons, the price was awesome. When we arrived the staff who greeted us were super polite and seemed genuinely happy to see us. Everything was done in a COVID secure way from getting the keys in a little plastic bag to being given your site induction by a video. The pods are tucked away down a hill at the edge of a forest, with a small lake teeming with goldfish, and if you’re quiet enough and patient there is some massive fish which pop up to feed. Our pod itself was amazing, it was spotless, I mean not a single bit of dirt or thing out of place, it even smelled super clean. Next to the pod on its own little decking area is the hot tub. It was hot on our arrival and again was super clean, we were slightly worried that it wasn’t private as the shrubs that have been planted are still quite small, but once you were in the hot tub you couldn’t see anyone else’s. quite clever really. The decking area was well lit and looked amazing with the lighting but the best thing was when we turned it off at midnight and was treated to the most awesome night sky, because your quite far away from the towns and villages in the area, the stars are so bright and you can see a lot more than you normally do. On our second day we had a breakfast butty in the cafe on site and it was really nice and the price was good too. All in all I have to say this place was top class. The facilities, the staff and the location are great, could they improve on anything? Probably but I didn’t see anything during my stay. Thanks guys we will be back

Wow what a fantastic few days away. We stayed in pod 8 overlooking the lake . Check in was at 5pm but a lovely lady phoned us around 2.30 to say our pod was ready (brilliant) . The pod was spotless and the hot tub had been cleaned and was at the perfect temperature. My husband enjoyed the golf facilities and couldn’t fault anything. The staff couldn’t do enough and we were given fresh towels and robes . Will definitely be going back .

Our group of 3 had a great time with our first experience of shooting clay pigeons. The instructor was excellent, giving a full brief of the safety using the rifles. We were then taken to our own pod. He reassured us about the measures taken to keep us safe during COVID. Whilst not having the best shot myself, we all thoroughly enjoyed it.

Just stayed here for the weekend with my boyfriend. My first complaint is about the hot tubs. When we arrived we noticed one of the jets for the hot tub was loose at the bottom of the pool, this was slotted back in by maintenance the next morning, however repeatedly kept popping out during the weekend- which is obviously not ideal. We had noticed on the 2nd night the hot tub was extremely cold, even though we had tried to adjust it to the highest setting. It did not seem to reach 40 degrees at all, just staying on 30. The water was that cold that after an hour we gave up and sat inside the pod, with the heater on full blast- which you wouldn’t expect in July/August. The next complaint is due to the faulty lights. Every pod had fairy lights outside their area, however ours didn’t work all weekend, which was very disappointing. We inspected the lights to see why this was and we could see the wire had been patched up with tape, so this problem was already known to them. If lights are broken you’d expect them to be replaced not botched up. I think check in and checkout time should also be mentioned. When we initially booked in May/june arrival was 4pm and checkout was 10am. When we arrived this had then apparently changed to 5pm check in and 9am checkout. We found the 9am checkout far too early and probably would’ve looked at other locations with better times, had we been made aware of this when we booked. The facilities were also very basic. The oven was a portable mini oven, so we had to cut our pizzas in half, to be able to cook them- which you can imagine was very time consuming. Cups are coloured plastic cups (children’s cups), which wasn’t very suitable when drinking Prosecco or any alcohol. You’d expect proper drinking glasses to be provided for adult stays. I would have brought my own, if I had of known. I have added pictures of both. Overall, I would not return here. It is very overpriced for what you get.
