A day at Paultons Park

Date published: Wednesday 24 June 2015

Our Reception Team are constantly striving to give the best service to our guests that they possibly can. With this in mind we think it’s important to have personally experienced the local attractions so that we really can recommend what suits each guest individually.

Head Receptionist, Lucy Davies and Receptionist, Maria Hadjuk spent a day at Paultons Park, which houses the infamous Peppa Pig World attraction.
What can we say … the park was spotless! You can tell that this is a family run business where the staff really do care. The Park is far more diverse than we were expecting with beautifully kept gardens, a variety in species of birds and other endearing wildlife such as meerkats and penguins. These added features made it easy for us as adults to enjoy ourselves without having children to accompany us.
