Comments

My kid’s achievements at Bendrigg have outstripped anything I ever thought possible. The staff are so keen for them to achieve and have fun – and they always make sure they do! The feel-good factor here is brilliant. The activities are a real challenge but set up in such a way, and supported so well, that they come away feeling on top of the world.by Claire Millington - Parent on 04 January 2016

This is a note to say a huge thank you to everyone at Bendrigg – Issy has clearly had the best time of her life! What a wonderful place for anyone to visit. It was a great reminder to all grown-ups on how anything can be achieved with the right attitude and motivation.by Issy's Mum on 04 January 2016
