"Just left" from London

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

"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"

Meet the team

The Thomas Centre Team


The Inspiration!

Now 25, he was a student at St Elizabeth’s College in Much Hadham, Herts. Thomas has become a very sociable member of the family and loves being included in a range of tasks around the site when he is at home. Our family experiences around Thomas are the motivation behind our project.



In earlier years, Jan was Thomas’s home teacher for five years. A practitioner rather than a theorist, with lots of hands-on experience especially in the field of "Language through Reading". Now? Like all women, multi-skilled, multi-talented and most of the time, just wants to get the job done! 


Finance and Strategy

The man behind the scenes and working full time in the food industry to help pay for the dream! Can often be seen at weekends helping with DIY tasks and occasionally extending his social skills at the Mill House at the end of our drive! Passionately believes that parent networks often provide the best advice and support to families like ours.


Assistant Boss!

Val is Jan’s sister and oversee's all our extensive housekeeping needs. Val moved from Kent to help with all the many aspects of running a busy family business. All our laundry is managed on site and Val can often be found enjoying a chat with our many visitors,  For sure, we couldn't maintain our standards without her!

Lizzie & James

Social Networking (Facebook, Twitter etc)

Lizzie is Thomas’s “big sister”, a teacher living in Lincoln who married James just a few months ago, Lizzie has grown up with the development of our project all around her and helped and supported us in so many ways. Now we are delighted to have James join the "back office"team, helping support our IT resources.

The full team and nothing but the team!

Our properties are kept to the highest standards and we could not do it without this crew. With up to 26 beds to change every Friday and Monday, and about 8 acres of grass parklands to be kept mown, there is always something to be done here!              Thank you Team!
