"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"

One of the new and interesting developments at The Thomas Centre has been families and extended families making group holiday bookings, for parties and family events.

"We all had a lovely peaceful break with Lisa enjoying her birthday at the Thomas Centre."

The Grant family, Surrey

Family events, parties and holidays are often not practical for families with children or adults like ours.

Here, each family can have their own property to suit their needs and the whole extended family group.

Folk are then able to get together as they wish, whilst still enjoying the privacy of their own holiday home.

Central to this development has been the use of Josie’s Corner a good sized community room, providing a range of options.

"What a fantastic Christmas we have all had! Thank you so much for the lovely get together  and the reception on Christmas Eve in Josie’s Corner"
