Disneyland Paris® Breaks with PGL: Great Deals for Families

PGL, the UK’s top activity holiday company, has its own château-style adventure centre just 30 minutes’ drive from Disneyland Paris. Three- and four-night summer breaks that include theme park entrance on two days are now discounted by up to 51%, with offers for families of ‘all shapes and sizes’ including single parents.

For example, one adult and one child aged five to 18 years sharing a twin room on a four-night holiday would have paid £738, but now pay £359, saving a massive 51% on brochure price.

A single parent with two children sharing a family room for four nights now pays £549, saving 43% on brochure price of £967.

A family of two adults and two children sharing a family room on a three-night break now pay £599, saving 37% on original price of £956.

Château de Grande Romaine is set in 70 acres of grounds, with family accommodation in a modern wing offering ensuite rooms sleeping either two, four or six. There’s an outdoor heated pool and plenty of room for PGL’s most popular activities that can be tried out on the four-night breaks, such as a zip wire, trapeze and climbing wall.

A fun self-contained summer escape, a break can also be the perfect start or end to a longer self-drive holiday in France.

Three-night breaks include: all meals from dinner on Day 1 to breakfast on Day 4 with packed lunches on Days 2 and 3; theme park passes for two days; use of the pool at specified times; family-themed evening fun arranged by PGL staff.

Children aged three or four are also welcome, with special prices from £139, which includes a pass to Disneyland Paris, and such activities as are appropriate to their age/size. Babies and toddlers are free, but must be supervised by a parent at all times (there are no creche facilities at PGL).

PGL Summer Camps: 50% off for First Timers

Since it was founded in 1957, hundreds of thousands of children have enjoyed A PGL ‘summer camp’ without their parents, trying out new activities and making new friends.

To encourage a new generation of kids to experience PGL for the first time, the company is now offering 50% off all its ‘First Timer’ multi-activity weeks this summer.

The offer – which must be booked by 18 June 2018 – saves up to £319 per child on a week-long residential stay.

Head of Holidays, Steve Hougham says “We understand it is a big thing for a parent to commit to their child’s first holiday away from home. But we know that children gain so much – especially in self-confidence – that it’s worth it, and this special offer makes the decision easier!”

All ‘First Timer’ holidays are just that: holidays exclusively for children who have not experienced PGL ‘unaccompanied’ before. Children who have been on a school trip or family holiday are eligible for the offer.

The half-price offer is on seven-night residential holidays on selected dates this summer at adventure centres in Surrey, Sussex, Wiltshire, the Isle of Wight, Devon, Dorset, Herefordshire, Shropshire and Lincolnshire.

Each is owned and run year-round by PGL, with trained staff taking care of everything from dawn to dusk – and beyond. Single-sex accommodation, all meals, activities every day, equipment, instruction and supervision are all included in holiday prices.

Specific examples of discount First Timer holiday weeks include:

Marchants Hill, Surrey: 4 Aug week for seven to 10 year olds was £639 now £319.50

Caythorpe Court, Lincs: 28 July & 4 Aug week for seven to 10 year olds was £639, now £319.50

Boreatton Park, Shrops: 18 & 25 Aug week for 10-13 year olds was £609, now £304.50

Liddington, Wilts: 11, 18 & 25 Aug week for seven to 10s or 10-13s was £609, now £304.50

Osmington Bay, Dorset: 21 July week for seven to 10s was £625, now £312.50

Little Canada, IoW: 18 Aug week for 10-13s or 13-16 year olds was £589, now £294.50

To take advantage of the offer, book by 18 June and take out PGL’s special activity holiday insurance (£27 per child).

PGL Family Adventures at Half Term: four nights now from just £159

Remaining May half term family breaks at PGL’s adventure centres in the UK are now discounted, with prices pitched at just £159 per person, representing a massive saving of up to £800 for a family of four!

The five-day/four-night breaks all start Monday 28 May and include simple but ensuite accommodation (parents and children in separate rooms), all meals, activities, instruction and equipment, as well as family-focussed evening fun.

The breaks are offered at PGL’s family adventure centres Barton Hall in Devon, Caythorpe Court in Lincolnshire and Liddington in Wiltshire.

Now, parents and children alike pay just £159 per person, saving up to £230 per parent, and up to £170 per child on original brochure prices.

The biggest saving is at PGL’s fabulous adventure centre above Torbay in Devon, where four nights at Barton Hall will now cost a family of two adults and two children aged five to 18 years just £636 (£159 x four), saving a huge £800 off the original price!

Barton Hall is set in 46 acres of the English Riviera, with distant sea views and amazing facilities including an outdoor heated swimming pool (in use for half term), zip wires, giant swings and a lake where canoeing and raft building take place. Other activities (which are also organised at Caythorpe Court and Liddington) include archery, fencing, abseiling and ropes courses.

With this offer, the equivalent saving on the Caythorpe Court and Liddington breaks is an amazing £680 for a family of four.  Quote MAY199 when booking.

Children two to four years are also welcome, and are free, but must be supervised at all times by a parent, which impacts on the adult’s ability to take part in activities.

Parents Go Half Price on PGL Family Adventures this Summer

PGL – the original and best activity holiday company – has a new offer on Family Adventure holidays in the UK this summer, with each full-paying child able to take along a parent at half price!

The deal is on selected dates at six family activity centres in Britain: in Devon, Suffolk, Perthshire, Lincolnshire, Wiltshire and the Isle of Wight.

For example, Barton Hall is set in 46 acres above Torbay in Devon and has fantastic facilities for family holidays from an outdoor heated pool to abseil towers, archery ranges and mountain bike trails. Seven night holidays starting 4, 11, 18 and 25 August are included in the Parents Go Half Price offer.

Barton Hall offers a choice of simple but ensuite family rooms, or separate ensuite rooms for parents and children.

Adult prices start at £489 per person in a family room, and at £529 per person in an adult twin. Now, those prices are slashed in half when children aged five to 18 years pay brochure price of £409 (in a family room) or £449 (in a separate room).

This means that a family of two children and two parents occupying separate rooms would pay a total of £1427, saving a massive £529. When sharing a family room the price falls to £1307, saving £489.

Children as young as five are usually able to tackle all the activities on offer at Barton Hall. Two, three and four year olds are welcome, and are FREE but are too young to participate and – as PGL does not offer crèche facilities – a parent must be responsible for such youngsters at all times, which will impact on their ability to take part.

To take advantage of the offer, quote MAY58 when booking by 4 May.
