Motorsports at boreatton park
If you love your excitement with added revs this is your kind of adventure!
What’s it all about?
Learn to ride a motorbike, develop your own go-kart strategy, or tackle our off-road track on a quad bike. You’ll learn basic skills, and improve over the week.
Driving vehicles you’re not normally able to!
Can I do other activities as well?
Yes – every day you’ll also enjoy half a day of activities from our brilliant multi activity programme, plus different entertainment every evening, so you can pack in loads of other new experiences too!
What can I drive?
Depending on your centre and age group, you’ll drive up to three different vehicles. Engine sizes vary from 50cc to 80cc, with speeds limited to suit the conditions.
All centres have quad bikes and motorbikes, with selected centres also having go-karts and a selection of ATVs (All Terrain Vehicles).
What do I learn?
You’ll learn balance, clutch control, and to start and stop safely. We operate time trials, rather than races, to help you monitor your progress. You can also design your own course, using equipment including obstacles, ramps, see-saws and limbo bars.
Do I need any specialist equipment?
We provide all specialist equipment, including goggles, helmets, overalls and other safety equipment.

Every day is different
Alongside the Motorsports activities you’ll also enjoy half a day of activities from our brilliant multi activity programme!
We offer over 50 different activities across all our centres and we pack in as many as possible on every PGL Adventure Holiday. Please note that not all activities are available at all centres; please see the specific centre pages for more information.
The fun doesn’t stop there! We also include fun-packed evening entertainment programmes at all our centres, every day, all year round, whichever holiday you choose.
Boreatton Park has everything you might need including our brilliant sports/activity hall with its superb climbing wall. We’ve also got a football pitch, a purpose-built dining room and the ‘Mini Moose’ lounge. Our 240 acres of grounds include a river, three lakes and a 37ft sandstone cliff for abseiling. There are also five zip wires (including one across a lake), abseil towers, a high ropes course, Jacobs’ Ladders, five quad bike tracks, six giant swings and more.
|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||Half day of Motorsports|
|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||Climbing and Jacob's Ladder|
|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.
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.
Our 2017 holidays will be available to view online and book from Tuesday 22nd November, so there is not long to wait!
