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 based on a recent assessment by Visit England. There are a plethora of fun 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 Water Walkerz, circus skills training, 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, which is located in North Cornwall, just a short drive from Newquay beach. On-site amenities are very similar to those in Cheddar Woods 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 Resort – 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 Resort is certainly somewhere you should consider.

There are a range of onsite facilities here which will cater for the whole family as well as 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 Darwin Escapes mascot Charlie Bear on hand to organise face painting, crafting, talent shows and much more. There is even an evening entertainment package available on-site to keep the whole family laughing and singing long into the small hours.

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 atmosphere, 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 and older children, 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 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 for the duration of your stay. 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 Bay Lodge Retreat. The facilities here are again tailored more towards adults, teenagers and slightly older off-spring being made up of an on-site gymnasium and an ever popular family restaurant. The resort is ideally situated to allow full exploration of the Isle of Wight with numerous attractions nearby available, including Monkey Haven in Newport and also the Seaview Wildlife Encounter.

However, if you are looking to combine luxury lodges with on-site facilities and activities which are perfect for younger children too, then you may be better considering somewhere like our brand new Norfolk Woods Resort & Spa where you’ll find an exciting Go Active+ programme alongside an outdoor children’s play area where you kids are sure to have hours of fun while you make the most of the wide selection of beverages which are on offer at our fantastic bar and restaurant.

Ever Considered Buying Your Own Family Holiday Home?

Imagine having the freedom of knowing that you could just jump in your car with your family and venture off for a luxury holiday whenever you pleased. No shopping around to overcome high school holiday fees or uncertainty over the quality of accommodation you are going to get, just the knowledge that you can go to your very own luxury family holiday home whenever you please and make use of impeccable 5 star facilities and gain access to a fantastic array of activities whenever you like without impacting on your overall annual holiday expenditure.

Family Holiday Home

Enjoy your very own 5 star private family holiday

Well, all of this would be possible if you were to opt to buy a family holiday home with Darwin Escapes at one of our eight ownership resorts across the country.

The offering at each of these eight locations is equally as eclectic as it is with our holiday parks, with somewhere like New Pines Holiday Home Park in North Wales offering 5 star luxury but with an exciting array of on-site activities for the whole family throughout the day including a dedicated children’s entertainment programme and lively evening entertainment.

Those with slightly older children meanwhile would be better placed somewhere like Piran Meadows Resort in Cornwall which has potentially our most wide ranging offering. The on-site 5 star facilities here include a heated swimming pool, outdoor children’s splash zone, all weather pitch, sauna, steam room, bowling alley, football simulator and much more. This is alongside a daily Go Active programme.

The choice is never ending, as is our wide variety of new and used UK holiday homes for sale at each of these locations. We aim to ensure that varying budgets can be met, with many of our owners having taken advantage of the low rate finance packages which are currently available to make owning a holiday home with Darwin Escapes that much more affordable.
