99% of our previous customers would use Coldwell again for their Group Accommodation and Activities. Here’s what they’re saying about us
A good location , close enough to towns and shops but also remote enough that we could be
together. It is well placed near to motorways , train stations and central for people travelling from
around the country. There are goos attractions close by. We visited Wycoller and Haworth as well as
the British India Museum in Nelson.

Skerton Youth Club- August 2015
The helpfulness of the staff was exceptional! Even getting us some garlic bread from the shop when
we ran out. The staff could not have been more helpful.
Skerton Youth Club- August 2015
The Centre staff were very welcoming and friendly. The activities were challenging, yet fun and
brought the team together. Activities promoted good and effective communication which was key to
our aim for the day; everyone felt they could take part. Both instructors worked well with both
groups , friendly and approachable and made the day very fun. Overall, enjoyable and successful.
Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust-June 2015
The Coldwell staff were extremely helpful! Great communication before our stayand we were very
grateful that they allowed us to have a look around beforehand, On arrival the staff were very
friendly, informative and welcoming. The facilities were absolutely perfect. We were very impressed
with the number of bedrooms and bathrooms. The kitchen was fantastic and a great size to cater for
such a large party as was the eating area. The extra facilities such as the pool table, table football
and games console/projector room were a fabulous bonus. Everything was very maintained and
extremely clean.We have already highly recommended Coldwell to many friends.

Hydburn Young Carers –April 2014
Had a good time.All the staff were lovely and would do anything to help. The Centre is ideal for our
needs ‘ giving young carers a break from their caring role’ We cannot thank everyone enough and if
we had more funding we would come more often. Thanks.

The whole weekend was fantastic, we couldnt of asked for a better place to bring our team. Friendly
and helpful staff. Great activities on-site. Thankyou girls for everything.
Burnley Young Carers – August 2014
All the young carers enjoyed the home-cooked meals. The helpfulness of the staff was excellent,
whenever support was needed there was always a member of staff present in the building or a
phone call away. Fantastic support from staff during our stay. Thank you.
Monika Atkinson – August 2014
The helpfulness of the staff was absolutely superb, Claire and Joanne went above and beyond to
ensure all our needs were met and hada fabulous time. A true asset to the activity centre. All the
party were truly impressed with the accommodation and activities available. The games room was
a real gem and allowed old and young to play together.
What an absolutely perfect week, the cleanliness was excellent, the staff were extremly helpful, excellent facilities, excellent hosts. Thanks so much for your help, i will recommend you highly!. Ormskirk Prince’s Trust team – November 2013
Coldwell has a great character and charm, not only in its exterior and surrounding area but in the staff that are dedicated to its cause. We are always made to feel welcome and everything we request is met. Before you arrive you need to go on a diet as the food is traditional with superb helpings, and refreshments available. Accomodation is basic but more than adequate to serve our needs, plenty of space and areas to work in. For extreme value for money i could not expect anymore from the centres overall facilities and willingness to help. Already cant wait to return.
.. Blackburn with Darwen Music Services – Paul Rigby- October 2013
Both the staff and young people loved the stay and it was so nice to have sole occupancy of the centre. Hopefully we will get to use Coldwell again in the near future! Just a huge thank you for making us feel so welcome. We had a brilliant weekend and the young people have not stopped talking about it especially the organised ghost tour and stories. Sheena Amos Trust – October 2013
The helpfulness of the staff was excellent. We were very late arriving due to traffic on the Friday and it was really appreciated that we were still given a warm welcome. Excellent facilities… Colin – October 2013
Just a big thank you to Claire, Joanne and Glen, we had an amazing time and just loved waking up to the lovely views. You are so welcoming and made the young people feel right at home, they remarked how lovely you are. Please keep up the good work, you are doing an amazing job! The archery, bushcraft and laser tag was really interesting, the young people loved it. Really good instructors too... The Childrens’s Society – October 2013
We have already made 2 further bookings! Thank you so much for all your support and help, the residential was a great success... Keighley Prince’s Trust – September 2013
Staff were exceptionally helpful and accomodating. Burnley Football league trust – August 2013
Coldwell Activity Centre is a great place for groups to visit and stay over, and we really enjoy coming and working there. The centre is self-contained, with lots of different environments to use as locations for filming. We recently made a short horror film with a group of young people from Liverpool – and the woods nearby were the perfect spot to film in. The combination of media suite, classroom, equipment and accommodation all in one place, make Coldwell a great choice for any groups looking for a fun, creative environment to learn new skills…Caroline Eccles – Huckleberry Films
Coldwell Activity Centre provided an excellent residential venue for our Summer Programme, with access to outdoor education, classrooms and film making. The young people can’t wait to return. They loved the open space, learning opportunities and friendly staff. We’ll certainly be using the Centre again as it proved to be an ideal place for informal learning and innovative youth work…
