Just got back from Primrose Retreat and had the most fantastic time. It was luxurious, safe, private and it was ideal for a holiday with the kids. The facilities were great. Everything was organised and everyone's safety was ensured post the lockdown. The little ones loved the pool! Would definitely go back!
