Scroll down for our hand-picked recommendations for holidays and breaks with PGL Family Adventures.
With a plethora of packed activities on offer, finding the right holiday shouldn’t pose a problem. Whether your kids are dab hands at staying afloat on the water, whizzing through woods on a zip-wire, want to have a go at fencing or are of a more nervous disposition, a PGL holiday will see everyone’s confidence grow (including yours) as you all get to grips with a range of exciting adrenaline-fuelled activities to channel all that youthful exuberance.
The days are jam-packed with family team activities; a chance for bonding, harmless competitive fun and, of course, making new friends, young and old alike. The evenings are well catered for with some good-old family favourites such as quiz nights, karaoke evenings (you know you want to!), treasure hunts and discos giving everyone the chance to perfect their dance moves.
While all of the activity centres focus on the great outdoors each one has a different feel to it. There are mansion houses set in grand estates, log cabins in the woods for more of a rustic feel and chalets with great sea views. Some are cosy and evoke that homely feel, whilst others operate on a grander scale and may be more modern in design. The accommodation is simple but comfortable with the emphasis focused on what’s going on outside rather than the interiors. There are family rooms or separate parent and child bedrooms at many of the centres, to suit everyone’s budget and most centres have cosy bars and lounges for chill out time as well as on-site shops selling snacks to keep energy levels topped up.
PGL Family Holidays are also flexible when it comes to how long you want to be there, offering 7 nights, 4 nights or 2/3 night weekend stays. So there’s no excuse – before your kids spread their wings and leave the nest go on an adventure with them and show them you’ve still got what it takes to have fun.
