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.

Baby-friendly Narrowboat for Hire

A canal narrowboat with baby-friendly modifications is now available to book through leading boating holidays agency Waterways Holidays.

‘Lucy May’ is a 58-feet long narrowboat with a permanent double bed in the middle cabin, and two single berths in the forward cabin. One of the single berths can convert into a hand-built drop-sided cot.

Black-out blinds are thoughtfully fitted in the same cabin, and instead of ‘just’ a shower, the bathroom has a small bath with shower over, for easy baby bathing.

Stair gates are provided so that a toddler may be safely restricted to the saloon/lounge.

Unbreakable plastic cutlery and tableware can be supplied if required and of course the TV in the saloon/lounge has a DVD player for showing toddler-friendly cartoons.

Finally, a locker at the front of the boat provides secure housing for storing a baby buggy.

In addition to the double and two single berths, seating in the saloon converts to provide another double bed, making ‘Lucy May’ ideal for a family holiday with grandparents, parents and one or two young children.

‘Lucy May’ is based on the Grand Union Canal at Stockton Top Marina in Warwickshire. This is a popular starting point for boating holidays with a choice of routes through the leafy heart of England: Warwickshire and Northamptonshire, south to Oxfordshire, north to Leicestershire or west to Worcestershire.

A three-night weekend hire costs from £500 to include all gas and diesel used during the cruise, damage waiver, bedding and bed-linen, buoyancy aids and car parking at the Stockton Top Marina.
