"Just left" from London

"We loved our Mary's House so much, we thought about changing the locks, and staying forever, but honesty prevailed!" 

Family from Gloucester

"I have loved our holiday: our first holiday in a long time and it was superb.

The go karts were really good. The house was a great size and the swimming pool was just terrific"

Mencap Supported Living - 2014

"A wonderful holiday. Its been lovely to see our resident interact with other visitors on her second visit here.
She has really come out of her shell whilst being here, fantastic!"

Christmas and New Year 2018

Whilst we are closed over December and January, we do provide a fantastic opportunity for families to have a really special break over the Christmas and the New Year period.

Imagine waking up to all the space and privacy that The Thomas Centre provides...

Imagine have the swimming pool entirely to yourselves on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day...

And why not see the last of the seal pups on the beach just a few miles away at Donna Nook on Boxing Day?

Warrens Lodge

Our 9th New Year visit, what more can we say!! Says it all really!” Manchester

Andrews Lodge

Such a wonderful, well equipped place to be, knowing no one was judging us, made a HUGE difference. Thank you SO much for your hospitality. Our son had a few little tears at having to leave today, and is now begging us to buy him a trike: he just loved having the carrying basket on the back so he could 'deliver' things to places!. Having the go-karts within view of Andrew's Lodge meant we could give them a little independence, which is so valuable. Cambridgeshire

“Another glorious family Christmas – very festive and as welcoming as ever!”        Canberra, Australia

“We had a lovely time. The Thomas Centre is truly a fantastic place and a relaxing holiday for everyone. So nice not to have to chase Luke all the time. He could run freely and enjoy the facilities. He even slept through 2 nights in a row after all the activity.”  Cheshire
