"We’ve just returned from Mendip and had an amazing time!  We booked the skiing package along with many other varied activities including tobogganing, rifle shooting, frisbee golf, family games and orienteering. We were wowed with how much value and fun was packed into a couple of days. Even our totally hyper 8-year-old was knackered. The accommodation was spotless and comfortable, the staff were all extremely accommodating and helpful and the food was insane! We cannot recommend this please highly enough. We came home exhilarated and can’t wait to come back. Thank you to everyone who looked after us, but special shout outs for George (who seemed to be everywhere ), Lizzy  (for your amazing rifle class) and the wonderfully patient Harry for our newly acclaimed skiing ‘eh-hem’  (we’ll keep practising) skills. We are already planning our next visit. See you all soon!"

Amazing time!
