We British tend to be a cynical lot and we like a good moan on holiday. I have to say Lost Valley would soften the toughest cynic. The warmth of the welcome and the service ethos wash over you when you drive through the gates. Nothing is too much trouble. Everyone is positive, smiley, friendly and helpful ALL THE TIME. If this sounds a bit like a scene from the Stepford Wives I hasten to add that they are also full of energy, wit and tremendous fun. It is impossible to be grumpy under such an onslaught of niceness. I can't imagine anybody ever finding anything to complain about, it is practically perfect. The setting is glorious, the riding great, the kids have a fabulous time. The food was a really nice surprise too - fresh and light and interesting. The cabins are meticulous with lots of thoughtful little bits and pieces that would put a 5 star hotel to shame.
Sitting round a campfire at sunset listening to a bunch of young people singing an old spiritual in perfect harmony - it is a bit like stepping into an episode of the Waltons but that is what is so irresistible. I would go back in a heartbeat. Don't change a thing!
