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.

Kids Go Free on PGL Family Adventure Breaks this Easter

PGL is offering free places for children aged five to 18 on all its Family Adventures during the Easter holidays, if booked by 5 March.

For each full-paying child on a two-night, four-night or seven-night Easter break, a second child is completely free, saving between £139 and £399 per child.

A range of start dates are offered between 23 March and 13 April at six adventure centres in Perthshire, Lincolnshire, Shropshire, Wiltshire, Dorset and the Isle of Wight.

For example at PGL’s Liddington adventure centre in Wiltshire a two-night break starting Saturday 31 March includes up to six different activities  over the weekend, plus family-focused evening fun, along with simple but ensuite accommodation in a family room and all meals. Each adult pays £179, the first child £159 and a second child is completely free, saving £159. (Separate rooms for adults and children are also available at a supplement.)

Alternatively, for families with just one child, the child price is discounted by 30%.

Children as young as five are usually able to tackle all the activities on offer over the weekend. 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 EAS18 when booking by 5 March.  http://pgl.co.uk/en-gb/family-adventures/special-offers/free-child-places-this-easter-1
