Parents Go Free on PGL Family Adventures

An amazing new offer from PGL Family Adventures saves up to £1048 on a family week in France and up to £808 on a week’s holiday in the UK.

One parent is free, and a second adult is half price on selected holidays. In the UK, there is a choice of eight adventure centres across the country, from Perthshire in Scotland to the Devon coast. In France, the offer is on holidays at PGL’s château-style adventure centre close to Disneyland® Paris, and canoeing holidays on the Ardèche river.

For example, in France, a seven-night stay at Château de Grande Romaine starting 28 July, 4 or 25 August includes entrance tickets for two days at Disneyland Resort Paris and two days of activities as well as ensuite accommodation and meals (but not travel to France).

The holiday is now offered with one FREE adult place worth £699, and one HALF-PRICE place at £349.50, saving 1048.50 in total – that is when parents share a twin room and the children aged five to 18 years pay £625 each to share an adjacent room. (Three and four year olds pay £349 each.)

In the UK a seven-night holiday at Barton Hall just above Torquay, starting 20 or 27 July, 3, 10, 17 or 24 August would have cost £539 per parent sharing a twin room, with the children paying £459 each for five to 18 year olds in an adjacent room. (Children two to four years old are free.)

With the offer, each family can take advantage of one FREE adult place, and one HALF-PRICE place, saving £539 and £269.50 respectively (£808.50 in total).

Selected four-night UK multi-activity breaks are also included in the offer, for example, four nights at PGL’s Liddington Adventure centre in Wiltshire starting 26 August is now offered with one free adult place worth £405, and a half-price place at £202.50, saving £607. Children five to 18 pay £345 each for the same break.


Activities vary between centres, typically including archery, climbing, water-sports, mountain biking and zip-wire thrills. The evenings are also – especially for the children – full of fun with games and entertainment organised by PGL staff, often enabling parents to relax with a drink after dinner. Accommodation is simple, but all rooms have private shower/wc. All meals are included in holiday prices.  A second offer on alternative summer dates allows one free adult place per family.
