Meet the Team

Whether you’re perfecting your swing on the courts, having a go at rock climbing for the very first time, or treating yourself to a relaxing treatment in the spa, it’s our team of trainers, watersport ninjas, and all round good-natured activity experts who’ll be there to share the memorable moments with you. They are the team you can count on this summer, and hopefully a few more summers after that!

Say hello to our beachclub teams...
  • Beach Team
  • Bike Team
  • Tennis Team
  • Kids' Club Team

Every member of staff holds the Neilson ethos at their core. They want to see each guest relaxing as hard as they like, and they want to be the ones to make sure you achieve your goals this summer. Whether that’s finally standing up on a SUP board, getting back into yoga, or earning yourself a Royal Yachting Association (RYA) qualification. You’ll find their enthusiasm infectious, their encouragement inspiring, and their welcoming spirit hard to say goodbye to at the end of your stay...

You’ll find our beachies are in their element when they’re out on the water and working their magic on a dinghy, SUP, kayak or windsurf. But they’re even happier when they get to share these moments with guests.

The beach team are dedicated to your experience, so whichever beach activity takes your fancy, they’re ready to take it step by step or simply give the odd helping hand if you need it. Our guests have always appreciated the team’s patience and encouragement so don’t worry if you think you might make a splash - that’s what a Neilson holiday is all about!

With fully guided bike rides available at all beachclubs, it’s safe to say our bike team know our trails like the back of their hand. The team have prepared a wide variety of routes for all abilities to enjoy, from leisurely green rides to the nearest village for a quick drink, to more adventurous and technical red and black rides. 

Whichever route is for you, rest assured our attentive and helpful team know everything there is to know, so you can really make the most of the spectacular views and winding trails.

Not only do we have a wonderful team of knowledgeable tennis experts to hand, but we’re also really proud to have Mark Petchey, former coach to Andy Murray and ex-GB player, on our books too.

You can pre-book a coaching clinic with the man himself on our Mark Petchey tennis weeks, or make the most of our inclusive Mark Petchey tennis coaching and pre-bookable private sessions where you’ll work with coaches who’ve been trained by Mark and are eager to share their love of tennis with you too. 

Meet the Kids Team

Meet the kids team

While you have the freedom to go off and do your thing, our fully qualified nannies and kids’ team are well equipped to make sure every child is having as brilliant a time as you are. 


At the end of each day you can expect stories about beach picnics, pirate adventures, volleyball, kayaking, and that’s without mentioning your day of activities! The kids’ team dedicate their time to making sure our youngest guests go home having learnt new skills, had new experiences, and even having made new friends to keep in touch with.
