Bank Holiday Weekend: PGL Family Adventures from £89pp

August Bank Holiday weekend is the last chance this summer to enjoy a PGL Family Adventure, with final reductions saving up to £400 for a family of two adults and two children aged five to 18 years!

Two-night multi-activity breaks starting Saturday 25 August are offered at seven PGL centres across the UK.

Prices now start at just £89 per person for a weekend that runs from Saturday afternoon to Monday afternoon.

For example, at Bawdsey Manor on the Suffolk Heritage Coast, everyone now pays just £89 each, whether adult or child and regardless of room type. Brochure prices for families booking a separate room for the parents, with children in an adjacent room were £199 per adult and £179 per child, which means a family of four now saves a total of £400!

The weekend includes all meals from Saturday dinner to Monday lunch, family-friendly evening entertainment and six activity sessions to enjoy (Sunday all day, and Monday morning).

Activities vary from centre to centre but may include archery, aeroball, ropes course challenges, climbing and fencing. All equipment and instruction is included, with children as young as five being able to participate.

£89 is the new price for Bank Holiday weekends at Bawdsey Manor, at Barton Hall in Devon, Liddington in Wiltshire, Osmington Bay in Dorset, Little Canada on the Isle of Wight and Barton Hall in Devon.

Prices at Caythorpe Court in Lincolnshire and Boreatton Park in Shropshire start at £109 per person.

UK Family Adventures: FREE PLACES for parents OR kids at PGL

Summer holidays at selected PGL Family Adventure dates are now discounted, with free places for children OR for parents, depending on the location and holiday date. For example, a family of four can save up to £1058 on a fully-inclusive week in Devon.

The first offer is amazing! For each full-paying child aged five to 18 years at the brochure price of £449, up to TWO parents are now completely free, saving £529 per adult, or £1058 for a family of two children accompanied by two (free) parents.

That’s for a seven-night holiday at Barton Hall near Torquay where the 46 acres have superb facilities from an outdoor heated pool to giant swings, a lake and a zip wire. There’s even a dry ski slope next door for optional ski sessions (small supplement) and flexibility in the centre’s activity programme to repeat a favourite activity, or simply take time out to enjoy the pool, or a cream tea.

Discounted weeks at Barton Hall start Saturdays 4, 11 and 25 August. The price includes all meals, activities and equipment as well as evening fun, and is based on parents having their own simple but ensuite room with the children in an adjacent room.

With this amazing deal, a family with three children would ‘earn’ themselves SIX free adult places! That makes this a stupendous offer for extended families looking to holiday together. Quote LR18X when booking this deal.

The second offer is that for each full-paying adult at the brochure price of £489, up to TWO children aged five to 18 years are now completely free, saving £409 per child, or £818 for a family of two adults and two children. A family of two adults and three children would still only pay £818, as would a family of two adults with four (free) kids!

This deal is offered at Caythorpe Court in Lincolnshire where more than 20 different activities may feature in a week’s holiday. It is based on a family of four sharing a simple but ensuite room for seven nights starting 11, 18 or 25 August. Quote LR28X when booking this deal.

Other final offers on UK family adventures include free child places on four-night breaks in Devon, Lincolnshire, Shropshire, Wiltshire and Dorset, and two-night activity weekends from just £99 per person regardless of age.

All Family Adventure offers must be booked by 17 August.

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.

Parents Go Half Price on PGL Family Adventures this Summer

PGL – the original and best activity holiday company – has a new offer on Family Adventure holidays in the UK this summer, with each full-paying child able to take along a parent at half price!

The deal is on selected dates at six family activity centres in Britain: in Devon, Suffolk, Perthshire, Lincolnshire, Wiltshire and the Isle of Wight.

For example, Barton Hall is set in 46 acres above Torbay in Devon and has fantastic facilities for family holidays from an outdoor heated pool to abseil towers, archery ranges and mountain bike trails. Seven night holidays starting 4, 11, 18 and 25 August are included in the Parents Go Half Price offer.

Barton Hall offers a choice of simple but ensuite family rooms, or separate ensuite rooms for parents and children.

Adult prices start at £489 per person in a family room, and at £529 per person in an adult twin. Now, those prices are slashed in half when children aged five to 18 years pay brochure price of £409 (in a family room) or £449 (in a separate room).

This means that a family of two children and two parents occupying separate rooms would pay a total of £1427, saving a massive £529. When sharing a family room the price falls to £1307, saving £489.

Children as young as five are usually able to tackle all the activities on offer at Barton Hall. 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 MAY58 when booking by 4 May.
