Introductory Adventure 1 night at boreatton park

A unique 2 day, 'first taste' of all the exciting benefits of a PGL holiday

Our 'Introductory Adventure' breaks have been specially created for children who haven't been to PGL before, to give them a unique 'first taste' of all the exciting benefits a PGL holiday can offer.

An 'Introductory Adventure' is a great choice if you have never been to a PGL centre before and want to 'test the water' with a short trip that is great value for money. You can discover what you enjoy most, what you are good at and challenge yourself, all day, every day. There are so many activities, we know that it’s impossible to fit them all into one holiday – but you won’t mind because you will be raring to come back and try the rest! In fact, in the meantime, we will have probably added some more to the list!

And if that isn't tempting enough, if you book an introductory holiday and then book a regular four or seven night Multi Activity holiday in the same year we'll refund the cost of your introductory holiday!

Their wings already exist, all they have to do is fly...

A typical itinerary for this holiday

Sample day on a Introductory Adventure holiday
Schedule Activity
Breakfast Off to the dining room with the rest of your group to fuel up for the day, you’ll need plenty of energy to keep you going. Breakfast includes cereals, toast, yogurts, porridge, and cooked breakfast – you choose!
Don’t forget to refill your drinks bottle before you head off to your first activity
Morning Activities Nature Trail and Jacob's Ladder
Lunch Worked up an appetite? Great – it’s time to replenish your energy stores with the dining room. If you have energy to spare after lunch your Group Leader will always be ready for a quick kickabout with a ball or you could relax and chat with your new friends.
Afternoon Activities Giant Swing and Canoeing
Dinner Time to eat again – a different menu each day (and did we mention, often evening meals come with a hot pudding too – or you can stick with fruit if you prefer).
Evening Ents Talent shows, campfires, quizzes and much more – your evening entertainment programme gives you the chance to get together with everyone else in your age group and have some laughs.
Bedtime Bedtime. The younger ones go first whilst older groups have time to chill out and chat or watch a DVD. Then it’s lights out and time to sleep ready to do it all over again tomorrow!

Please note this is a sample itinerary for illustrative purposes only. Itineraries will be planned by the centre shortly before your arrival.
 

Accommodation

The mansion house was built in 1857 and is a rare ‘calendar’ house with four main doors, 12 chimneys and 365 windows. There are two floors of dorms with 8–16 beds per room and toilets/showers nearby. This is usually where the 7–10s, and some 10-13s stay.

The ‘Tall Timbers’ Lodges in the grounds have mainly four or six beds in a room with en-suite showers/toilets. These are normally for 10–13s and 13–16s. The 13–16s will also have their own chill out room.

Tents - Our tents stand on hard, ‘all weather’ bases and each has four proper beds. All the tents are grouped together in their own area of the site which has its own shower and toilet block.
