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.

Save 50% on Half Term Family Adventures at PGL Centres

Activity holiday company PGL is offering 50% off Family Adventure breaks at three of its UK centres this October half term.

Four-night Monday to Friday breaks start on 22 and 29 October, with prices now from £588 for a family of two adults and two children five to 18 years, saving £588 – half price! That’s when sharing a simple but ensuite family room.

When parents opt for a twin with children in an adjacent room, a four-night stay is also now half price, down to £628.

As always with PGL, breaks include accommodation, all meals, activities, equipment and family-orientated evening fun, making them great value. Locations with half price breaks are Liddington in Wiltshire, Boreatton Park on the Welsh borders and Osmington Bay on Dorset’s Jurassic Coast.

Activities vary from centre to centre but may include archery, aeroball, ropes course challenges, climbing and fencing.

While most children aged five and upwards can take part in all activities, tinies aged two, three and four years old are also welcome and are completely free, but PGL does not have creche facilities so a parent must take responsibility for the non-participating child at all times.

Kids Go Free on PGL Family Adventures in France

Selected PGL Family Adventure breaks in France now have free places for kids, saving up to £505 per child!

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.

Here, there’s a choice between a Disneyland® Adventure week with tickets for two whole days in the theme park, or a Paris and Disneyland® Paris holiday with one day at the theme park and one day in the centre of Paris. Both holidays include fun family activities so everyone can try their hand at – for example – archery and abseiling, or the high-flying trapeze and zip wire!

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.
