"I am so glad to see that the hostel continues to grow and cater for its visitors. I've been bringing students to this beautiful house since 2002. It provides an excellent base for carrying out river studies within the Borrowdale Valley. Over the years hundreds of Essex students have been knee-deep in water collecting data, but however cold or wet we have got, a warm welcome has always been provided by the hostel. Students always remember this place: it’s often the first thing they mention to me after years have gone by and they are all grown up. A big thank you from a teacher and all the Thurstable as well as Moulsham students that have been here."

Paul Mason (teacher at Moulsham High School and previously at Thurstable School), 20th October 2014.
