On the outskirts of Torquay in south Devon, PGL Barton Hall is a great choice for all-inclusive family activity holidays, with parents and kids challenging themselves at everything from orienteering to abseiling, from quad-biking to zipwiring. 

Ideal for families with children between six and 18 (although younger ones are accepted), this is one of PGL's larger sites and offers a host of activities and facilities, including an outdoor heated pool, a dry ski slope and a lake for watersports including rafting and canoeing. 

The no-frills accommodation is either in the main house or in purpose-built chalets within the grounds with their sea views.
