Accommodation

Accommodation is either in wooden lodge villages or in the campsite, both set in the grounds of the house.

Lodges: Rooms in our wooden lodges are simple and functional and all are en-suite. Children and parents share a bunk bedded room (max. 6 people per room).

The Campsite: Located in an attractive wooded area close to all centre facilities, the campsite has a shower and toilet block for the use of campsite guests only. Each tent has a permanent all-weather floor and proper beds with mattresses. Parents will have a tent for two people with children in the tent next door (max. four children to a tent). Groups of three or less will be accommodated in one tent.

Facilities

Within the grounds there’s a beautiful river, expansive woodland, several lakes, a huge zip wire across a lake and a sandstone abseil cliff. There are plenty of all-weather facilities including an exciting ‘Activity Zone’ with an indoor climbing wall, as well as space for football, fencing and basketball. The on-site bar offers the perfect place to retreat and relax at the end of a busy day.

Highlights:

  • Perfect for short breaks
  • 240 acres of grounds to explore
  • The huge range of activities all take place on-site

Activities available

Every day is different
With 240 acres of ground, 3 lakes, a sandstone cliff and a river Boreatton Park is home to over 20 activities. Each one tailored to your needs, skills and previous experience. We will create the perfect family adventure holiday for you and your family.

Evening entertainment
Enjoying fun evening activities together as a family has always been part of our inclusive formula but even we recognise that some parents still want a bit of ‘me’ time too.

Therefore, we’re introducing some optional new ‘children only’ evening activities into our programme, alongside our existing planned ‘family’ entertainment that you can do together. Our team will supervise your children, who will spend their time with other children of similar ages doing organised activities, leaving you free to relax.

Food

Time together
Eating together is an important part of any Family holiday and we know how tricky it can be to please everyone in the family. PGL Family Adventures include breakfast, lunch and dinner; making food one less thing for you to think about.

Something for everyone
We source fresh regional produce whenever we can and you’ll always find a good selection of seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables on offer every day. The menu will always include a vegetarian option and we will try to provide a taste of local cuisine whenever possible. We aim to provide a balance of food which is familiar but also gives guests the opportunity to try food influenced by the area they are visiting. A range of salads is available at lunch and dinner time and fresh fruit is available at every meal.

Our Group leaders are on hand to help and will look out for anyone who can’t find anything on the menu that they enjoy. If necessary our catering teams will be more than happy to prepare something special.

Allergies, intolerances and other dietary requirements
A vegetarian alternative can always be provided on all our holidays, and we can accommodate most special diets required on medical or religious grounds, just let us know when you book.

Drinks
Tea, coffee, hot chocolate and water are available with meals. There are also water fountains available around the centre.

A dining room with a difference...
Meals will usually be served in the dining room, although at some centres there may be a barbeque on one evening. If you are out and about enjoying an excursion at lunchtime then our catering team will provide a delicious packed lunch for you to take with you.
