I visited Barton Hall PGL with my Hubby & 3 children (ages 10, 15 &17). We didn't know what to expect other than our through our children's accounts of previous visits to other PGL centres. We were expecting one level up from camping but we were pleasantly suprised....
What a wonderful holiday!!
We were given a warm and friendly welcome by one of the many enthusiastic PGL staff members who even offered to help carry our luggage.
The chalet style accommodation was very clean and comfortable, and exceeded our expectations. (Think vintage Pontins chalets and you will be on the right track!)I was pleasantly suprised to find that it included room service of sorts... floors and beds cleaned/ made and bathroom replenished.
The food is canteen style and has ample good hearty food with veggie options too. You won't go hungry. Tip...take a few treats or goodies for occasional treats in the evening... although there are plenty of vending machines around.
The activities were varied and planned carefully with excellent supervision. Safety was always paramount. The staff really encouraged you to have a go.
The whole family, teenagers included got stuck in and enjoyed the whole week.
The outdoor heated pool was a real treat this scorching week. It was very, very clean and constantly supervised by two lifeguards.
A great way to meet like minded people and make new friends. WE WILL BE COMING BACK!!!!
