We have just spent the most amazing week at Barton Hall with our children aged 12, 13, 15 & 17. The activities were fun and very well planned, and we found the staff without exception to be incredibly friendly, welcoming & encouraging. Our accommodation was the adult & child room (which comprises adjoining chalets - the children having 2 sets...

Stayed here for two nights and a good experience on the whole. Accommodation is basic but to be expected and although small can't moan about room too much. Very hot however which made sleeping uncomfortable. Activities were varied and of a good quality on the whole, however can be frustrating when the majority of activties are 2 person activties resulting...

Spent a week with the kids doing more activities in one week than they probably do all year. Activities run into the evening 9-10ish if you have the energy. Staff is brill-- positive attitudes from everyone-even the catering staff. The buffet style food is good enough to get by, you generate good appetite from all the activities that you don't...

Yes the food is basic, and yes the accommodation is basic, but what can you expect for the price? There are activities planned from morning until evening, there are bars if you just want a drink and there's a (heated) outdoor pool and games room if you have a spare moment. 99% of the staff are brilliant, the views are...

The whole week's experience was great on the whole. There were lots of pluses however, our shower was mouldy. Three time, I asked for it to be cleaned until something was finally done about it but not very well. The whole of the bathroom area needed redecorating, as it smelled dodgy all week. To be fair, we were offered another...

It's a great location well worth staying an extra couple of nights to explore Torbay. We were on a long weekend Friday to Monday and we got absolutely loads done, 4...

Just got back from what is undoubtedly the best family holiday we have ever had bar the trip to Florida and Disney.

Best holiday! Great weather helped. PGL staff were excellent as always. The food was great; good variety, balanced menu and lots of it. This was our third consecutive visit. The kids were really keen to go again and I was a bit dubious, thinking I would be bored. I needn't have worried, even doing many of the same activities again,...

“There are rooms in the house (with proper beds I believe) or chalets in the grounds (away from the bar & evening entertainment).”
 of 5 bubbles LovelyLaurie, 8 Sep 2016 | Read review
“Go for single floor chalets if possible. Pay the small amount extra for adult/child room over family room.”
 of 5 bubbles 700mikkyp, 13 Aug 2016 | Read review
“Family rooms have bunk beds and two twin beds (not double) or you can have adjoining children and adult rooms.”
 of 5 bubbles 47HelenA, 6 Aug 2016 | Read review
“With kids, book two adjoining rooms so you have two ensuites. Tip to PGL - Some of the bedposts have milk containers for tea coffee shoved down the bedposts which need removing.”
