James W: It there is one thing I didn't want to leave, it was den building! I would recommend coming again.

Max: I would definitely not have missed this experience. The activities are amazing and really joyful. The dinner I couldn't have ever imagined. Especially the apple crumble - it was amazing.
Trinity: It is a really good oportunity to go on a trip with your friends. I really liked making the mints and the tuck shop at night is good to have a drink. I like the dens because it is fun to make a den with your friends and go for a walk to find nature.
Ellie: I like that we get to spend all of our time with our friends and our teachers. It is fun building dens together and you also get to make loads of creative stuff.

Kyle W-Clark: You can discover loads and build dens. The food is delicious especially the biscuits.
Brianna: It's a good opportunity for children who haven't been away from their parents so when you get older you can go away with your friends.
Casey-Mae: You should really come to Holt Hall for a weekend because you can do loads of fun activities and it is a good chance for your children to run about.The food is very good and it will be the best place to go on holiday.

Please remember to park in the tennis court carpark and walk down to the lab in which your child has worked. If you are a holder of a blue badge - please continue down towards the stables to the right of the hall and park near the staff cars on the left. Please do not pull on to the cobbles.
