FamilyFest at Coldwell Activity Centre
22-24th April 2016
Feedback from The Riley family
The Coldwell Activity Centre was just what we were looking for to accommodate all our close families for our 95th birthday weekend (all ages from 4 months to 95 years!). It was great to have the entire building at our disposal, including the conservatory which was ideal for the formal birthday meal (and also used for our indoor craft activities).
The children particularly enjoyed the pool and football tables and the Xbox. The bedrooms were generally comfortable .
The adults appreciated the large cosy lounge to unwind in the evening. ( see for our facilities)
The food prepared by Claire and Joanne (and their helpers) for our cooked breakfasts and buffet lunch were very good and much appreciated by all. Having drinks available for 24 hours a day was very welcome.
We were blessed with fine weather on the Saturday morning for our planned outdoor activities. The archery and bushcraft organised by our instructors, Jim and Colin, were extremely successful. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it and appreciated the effort made to accommodate the wide age range. Some of the party went orienteering in the afternoon (using the self-direction information sheets) and the younger children used the playground.
Thank you Claire and Joanne for making us so welcome and for enabling this to be a very successful and fun weekend that we will all treasure.
The Activity Centre is great group accommodation used for many occasions like birthdays, anniversaries , family get-togethers, religious celebrations, Hen doo’s and can also be used as a get-together after a wedding.
