Multi Activity Holidays at bawdsey manor - our newest centre

We've been developing our multi-activity approach since we began in 1957...

...and it remains one of our most popular holiday choices for families today.

The ideal duration! A 7 night holiday allows you to try most of our superb activities and meet other families, plus you'll have a free day to explore the local area.

Multi Activity is all about packing in lots of different high-quality activities into your holiday to get the most out of each day.

We plan the programme for you to make the most of every moment and provide a mix that has something for everyone in your family no matter what their tastes, preferences or previous experiences.

We also provide a mixture of additional activities into the evening. These may include family quiz nights, karaoke evenings, treasure hunts, discos or a host of other fun ideas.

Activities

Every day is different
On your 7 night family holiday we will aim to schedule in three or four great activities every single day. We plan the programme for you to make the most of every moment and provide a mix that has something for everyone in your family no matter what their tastes, preferences or previous experience.

Evening activities
We also include evening entertainment programmes at all our centres, every day, all year round, whichever holiday you choose.

Here is an example of the full range of exhilarating activities that are available on a PGL Family Adventure. Please note that not all activities are available at all centres; please see the specific centre pages for more information.

Facilities

Over the last 2 years at Bawdsey Manor we have invested heavily in our new centre to fill the grounds with additional amazing, purpose-built activity bases creating a full range of all our activities from our classic programme including giant swings, a jacob's ladder, trapeze and climb towers. During 2019 we've also extended the 'River Jordan' area to allow us to offer raft building on site.

Alongside our new activities, we converted the historic clock tower buildings into a 'buffet-style' dining room, creating a new space to relax in and enjoy meal times, just a short walk from the main accommodation blocks.

Dormitory bedrooms in the main house were also refurbished along with the existing accommodation blocks in the grounds (to create ensuite rooms).

Also at Bawdsey Manor:

  • Playing fields
  • Tennis courts*
  • Meeting rooms / workspaces and lounges
  • Sports hall / gym
  • Shop
  • There is also a tennis court* (for more competitive families! - subject to availability)

Please note there is no bar at Bawdsey Manor. However, refreshments are provided for you to enjoy in a lounge and the team on centre can advise you of nearby pubs and restaurants should you wish.
