“Thank you for our excellent stay at Broomlee.  The dorms were warm and the beds super comfy.  We enjoyed our meals and getting hot chocolate before bed.  It really warmed us up after a long day of activities.  Our favourite activity was the tree climb because once you’d met your goal you felt a sense of achievement and it was really exhilarating to climb up”
