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.
