Family Activity Holidays

Go Active at Cheddar Woods Resort & Spa

If you are looking to keep the kids entertained during your next break, then we have a range of family holiday parks in our collection in various locations across the UK, which will be right up your street.

Right next to the glorious natural wonder Cheddar Gorge we have the Cheddar Woods Resort & Spa, which is a 5 Star Gold rated resort. There are a plethora of activities available to get involved in on park thanks to our Go Active programme. Our packed schedule includes activities such as fencing, body zorbing, aqua aerobics and much more. We also have a number of child focused activities on offer, including waterwalkerz, circus skills, pirate paradise and cool detectives.

In our on-site complex you will also find a number of leisure amenities which the whole family can get involved in, including an indoor heated swimming pool, bowling alley and pool tables.

We also have a Go Active programme in operation offering very similar activities at our 5 Star rated Piran Meadows Resort & Spa, which is located in North Cornwall, just a short drive from Newquay beach. On-site amenities are also very similar with an indoor swimming pool, bowling alley and pool tables. However, at Piran Meadows you will also have access to a number of other children focused facilities, including an outdoor splash zone and climbing wall.

Family Friendly Beach Holidays in North Wales

Talacre Beach Holiday Home Park – North Wales

If a huge array of on-park activities and facilities are what you are looking for, but in an ideal world you would like to combine this with the atmosphere of traditional family beach holidays, then Talacre Beach Holiday Home Park should be taken into consideration.

Like with some of the other resorts noted above, there are a range of onsite facilities which caters for the whole family and a dedicated Go Active programme with both adult focused and kid friendly activities provided. We also have a kids entertainment package available at our club-house with Charlie Bear on hand organising face painting, crafting and talent shows. Again, there are also evening entertainment packages for adults.

However, what really sets this park apart is its traditional family beach holiday feel with it being in close proximity to Talacre Beach. We even have our own fish and chip shop on park to maintain this feel, in what is very much a traditional British Seaside location.

Luxury Family Lodge Holidays in the UK

Family Lodge Holidays in the UK

Woodside Coastal Retreat – Isle of Wight

With slightly more of an emphasis on the adults, we have family lodge holidays available at our Mullion Cove Coastal Retreat in Cornwall. We don’t have the same extensive on-site facilities here; this is all about peace and relaxation in a glorious setting.

Our lodges are also beautifully prepared with all the modern luxuries you could ever require for a family self catering holiday, with fully equipped kitchens, flat screen TVs and also free Wi-Fi access. Some of our lodges are also available with their own private hot tubs on the external decking area. There are also plenty of family friendly attractions in the nearby area, with The Chocolate Factory & Craft Centre in Helston and the Cornwall Segway experience also in Helston to name but a few.

We also have luxury family holidays available in stunning holiday lodges on the Isle of Wight at Woodside Coastal Retreat. As with Mullion Cove, the parks have been designed with tranquillity in mind and hence the on-site facilities are limited. Nevertheless, the resort is ideally situated to allow full exploration of the Isle of Wight with numerous attractions available, including Monkey Haven in Newport and also the Seaview Wildlife Encounter.

Just down the road from Woodside Coastal Retreat is our brand new Woodside Bay Lodge Retreat. The ideal location means you will have the same access to the many visitor attractions on offer in the Isle of Wight, but the accommodation is slightly different with quirky Tree House units available alongside our holiday lodge offering. These are sure to prove popular with the kids.
