Vale School

10/10 for educational value, with particular reference to the use of growth mindsets, plus the best food I have ever had in all my years of organising residential trips.

Parent feedback, Framfield School

3 of my 4 daughters have had residential weeks at Bowles and the little one can’t wait. You give them an absolutely marvellous time – the week seems packed full of challenging activities, fun and adventure and each one has come home slightly changed by the experience – more confident, happy, settled and buzzing with tales of their experiences and team skills. Thank you. Merna

Harlequins RFC

There is absolutely no doubt that I would actively suggest BOC as a venue for programmes for clients in the SE who did not wish to travel to Herefordshire or Devon or even overseas! Your infrastructure, flexibility and professionalism are head and shoulders above so many other activity centres you should be justifiably proud

Hurst Park School School

We’ve had an amazing time. Thank you for looking after us so well. The food was amazing too!

St Patrick’s School

Excellent Activities. The centre staff are very patient with the children, taking time to make them feel valued. Bowles really values their environment and the people who come to stay in it. The whole centre has a lovely feel to it and delivers high quality educational experience to the children. Thank you.
