Accommodation

Accommodation is in either in our newer modern block or basic, comfortable chalets. All of the rooms are bunk-bedded and have en-suite bathrooms.

Facilities

Most of the activities take place on-site or in the indoor activity zone which includes our on-site bar, shop, games machines, table tennis and our indoor climbing wall. We also have a large sports hall.

Watersports, including dragon boating and kayaking, take place just a short drive away at the  Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy, which was the location for the 2012 Olympic sailing events. There is also an on-site lake which is ideal for raft building and after a busy day of activities the centre has a comfortable lounge and bar where you can relax while your children enjoy a game of pool.

Please note due to Covid-19 measures guests will currently need to make their own way to and from Weymouth for activities held there, to avoid the necessity for enclosed coaches.

Highlights:

  • Watersports at the 2012 Olympic venue from May - October
  • Jurassic Coast World Heritage location
  • Sea views and beachside location

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
Hot drinks, squash 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.
