October Half Term PGL Family Adventures: Kids now from £99

October half term is the last chance this year for adventurous families to have fun at PGL, with a choice of two- and four-night breaks at four of the UK centres – with discounts for adults and kids alike.

Two-night weekend breaks are organised in Dorset, Wiltshire, Shropshire and Lincolnshire, with start dates of 20 and 27 October to suit all school holiday dates.

As an example of price, adults now pay just £109 (saving £56), and children five to 18 years pay £99 (saving £46) for a two-night break at Caythorpe Court in Lincolnshire starting 20 October, when sharing an en-suite family room. The new deal means that a family of two adults and two children save a massive £204 on their break!

The same prices and savings apply at Liddington in Wiltshire on 20 or 27 October, at Osmington Bay in Dorset on 20 October, and at Boreatton Park in Shropshire on 20 or 27 October.

Four-night mid-week breaks at the same centres now cost from £209 per adult (saving £96) and from £179 per child (saving £76), again based on sharing a family room, and representing a huge saving of £344 on a family of four!  Start dates are 23 and 30 October.

In all cases, the break includes simple accommodation, either in a family room with en-suite shower/wc, or (at a higher price) separate rooms for parents and children; plus all meals and action-packed days tackling – as a family – activities ranging from the skills of archery and fencing to the thrills of the high-flying trapeze and zip wire. All specialist equipment and instruction is also provided.

Evenings are full of family-friendly fun, and as well as extensive grounds all centres have plenty of indoor space with lounges and a bar so that parents can enjoy a well-earned glass of wine!

Last Week of the Summer: Save up to 60% at PGL

The final week of the summer holidays is the last chance for children to have fun, and for parents to save up to 70% on PGL holidays for unaccompanied children.

It’s also a last chance to learn a new skill so that children can start the new school year brimming with confidence, says PGL’s head of holidays Steve Hougham.

“Abseiling 40 feet or hitting the centre of the archery target gives children a real sense of achievement that they carry into the new term.  And when it comes to presenting ‘What I did in the Holidays’ PGL gives kids plenty to talk about!”

Among the discounted seven-night holidays starting Saturday 26 August 2017 are:

Centre & Holiday                                Age Group       Brochure £      Sale £              Saving

Half an hour from Disneyland® Paris, and 40 minutes from the city of Paris, Château de Grande Romaine has excellent family-friendly accommodation and 70 acres of grounds including an outdoor heated pool. It’s a great base for families with children as young as five – with two to four year olds also welcome as long as mum or dad can supervise.

In Normandy, at the Château du Tertre, a Fantastic French Adventure week for families with children as young as five includes canoeing on the River Varenne and other activities in and around the centre’s 36 wooded acres, all 90 minutes’ drive from Mont St Michel.

And now each full-paying adult can take up to two children FREE!
