Great experience! Pre visit admin & organisation was clear and efficient. Directions were fine and all staff very helpful in confirming arrangements for one day - essential in view of the bad weather prevailing at the time. Warm and friendly welcome on arrival. Clear instruction and encouraging pilot. All in all great experience! Thanks!
