Kids Go Free on PGL Family Adventure Holidays

Families looking for adventure in the UK or France can save hundreds of pounds with PGL on a new ‘Kids Go Free’ deal. But hurry – bookings must be confirmed by 30 June.

Among a raft of late-booking deals, the stand-out offer is on seven-night holidays in Devon, Lincolnshire, Perthshire and France: for every full-paying adult, up to two children under 18 years are completely free!

For example, a seven-night family holiday at Barton Hall on Devon’s English Riviera starting 22 July, 5 or 12 August costs £469 per adult.  A child aged five to 18 years would normally pay £389, but is now free!

That means a family of two adults and up to four children sharing an ensuite family room will now pay £938 with a potential saving of £1556. Barton Hall in Devon has a superb array of family-friendly activities all included in the price, ranging from archery to zip wire thrills – with an outdoor pool to enjoy too.

The same Kids Go Free offer applies to week-long holidays at Caythorpe Court in Lincolnshire starting 29 July and 5 August, and to Dalguise in Perthshire starting 22 and 29 July.

Alternatively, in France, where PGL’s Chateau de Grande Romaine makes a superb base for activities and theme park fun, the seven night Disneyland Adventure starting 23 July, 13 or 27 August costs £549 per adult.  A child aged five to 18 years would normally pay £505, but is now free!

That means a family of two adults and up to four children sharing an ensuite family room will now pay £1098 with a potential saving of £2020. The superb adventure centre is just half an hour from Disneyland Paris and the package includes not only three days of fun activities on site, but tickets for two full days in the theme park!

Travel to France is not included, but as with all PGL Family Adventure holidays, the price covers simple ensuite accommodation, all meals, activities, instruction and use of equipment as well as family-friendly evening fun.

Book by 30 June quoting offer code KGFW1.  Children aged two to four years are also welcome, but are too young to take part in activities, so a parent must take responsibility for care at all times.
