" I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the team at The Mill Adventure Base for a wonderful 2 days.

The whole experience was absolutely fantastic and both staff and students thoroughly enjoyed it. It genuinely has been my favourite residential experience in 10 years of teaching.

Thank you for the wonderful organisation of the whole 2 days - the whole experience was extremely well run.
Please pass on our thanks to the catering team as the food was truly exceptional.

The instructors were all wonderful and engaged wonderfully with the children too.

The whole site team were amazing in both making us feel very welcome and going above and beyond to ensure that everything worked well and that we all had a great time."
