The property operates 24/7/365 but there is no one on-site on any day other than changeover days.

Do you have any testimonials from previous schools we can include?

The Mountain View is pretty new to the market but it has all 5*reviews on Trip Advisor as does it’s ‘sister’ property The Ship which has been up and running for a number of years.  The Mountain View is marketed to the general ‘Holiday Let’ market through all the usual portals but its sheer size plus the ‘Dorm’ and ‘Bunk’ rooms lend itself to the more ‘independent’ school venture if the organizers wish the freedom to plan their own activities around a comfortable ‘base’ where the usual bunk houses/activity centers might not be deemed appropriate.
