Great weekend away with loads of fun activities to occupy your day in this lovely corner of the country. Enjoyed the zip-lining (start halfway in some of the courses to skip the queues) and Adventure Island (3D maze is class) the most. The staff were enthusiastic and always helpful...especially Cora who looked after the whole group. Thanks for a great... More

We had a fantastic morning kayaking with Cora Jones,... More
