The great thing about Bowles is that it offers an outstanding opportunity to explore learning in an exciting, yet comfortable, environment. The facilitation is excellent and the food is fabulous! Through working with Bowles we are able to provide the opportunity for leaders in our business to explore the impact they have on others and practise the learning in a challenging and safe environment. We really get results!

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

The course facilitator was excellent. He understood our goals and our business. We have found that we have converted the skills we learnt back into the workplace. The course has been a springboard to other targets and broken down lots of barriers – I spoke to my colleagues more during our time at Bowles than I have over the last six months. We can’t wait to revisit!

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.
