Walhampton Residential - June 2023


Lucy Harrison - Walhampton School

"A great residential stay at Tapnell!

Students and teachers alike loved the quirky accommodation and amazing attractions onsite. Food was great and everything was taken care of by the Tapnell team including day excursions on the Island. Nothing was too much trouble. It all felt safe and comfortable. The children gained a huge amount from the experience and the staff returned well rested given the excellent on-site accommodation.

We will certainly be returning!"
