Beam House is the home of our Surfing holiday!

Set by the river in a picturesque wooded valley with the famous beach at ‘Westward Ho!’ just a short coach ride away, a Beam House holiday offers the convenience of the beach with a stunning rural location. As well as the wet and wild action at the beach there's loads of great stuff on-site including archery, trapeze and zip wire!

Our beach team know where to find the surf for body boarding and surfing. If you really want to learn to catch a wave then check out our surfing holiday. The multi activity programme is always arranged to make sure you can pack in as many different activities as possible. Weather and sea conditions permitting, we include at least two days of activities at the beach when you’re on a seven night holiday (we do go to the beach on other holidays but for how long will vary!)

Please note details of our 2022 Specialist holidays will be available in early 2022. 

Accommodation

All accommodation is in the main 17th century manor house. The rooms are large bunk-bedded rooms with 8–16 beds. Showers and toilets are located near to the rooms.

Facilities

Woodland and fields surround the centre and in the grounds there are activities including abseiling, climbing, archery, a fantastic high ropes course, a zip wire and motorsports. In the evenings there’s a social area to chill and chat or for hosting our varied evening entertainment programme.

Food

Fuel for adventure
To keep your children energised for their active PGL break our catering teams work hard to produce a menu jam-packed with nutritious family-friendly favourites to suit all appetites. This year we have made some improvements to bring you our best menu yet! View our sample menu here.

  • The BIG PGL breakfast - hot and cold options including a 'full English', toast, cereals and pastries.
  • Lighter tastier lunches - a pit-stop to prepare for a busy afternoon. Refuel with fresh sandwiches, soups, pasta or salads.
  • Delicious 'kids favourites' evening meals - crowd pleasing classics such as fish & chips, roast dinners and bangers & mash.

Our buffet style dining room means that children can ‘mix and match’ the items they love most and have unlimited access to our salad bar and fresh fruit. 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.

Keeping hydrated
Water, squash, tea and coffee are available with all meals and children are encouraged to refill their water bottles for regular use throughout the day. There are also water fountains available around the centre.
