Our Centres are all housed in beautiful buildings, from Georgian mansions to stunning country houses in sprawling estates, which boast spectacular views and offer comfortable accommodation with a mix of your own twin and family rooms. Most bedrooms have wash hand basins, with toilet and shower facilities close by.

All meals, afternoon cake and hot/cold drinks are included, as well as one free activity per family per night stayed, making Real Family Holidays excellent value for money. You’ll also find indoor facilities including games and TV rooms, although with the exciting activities and our friendly staff on hand to help you make the most of the free time during your stay, you may spend most of your time outdoors.

Imagine being as close to nature as on a camping trip, but without the discomfort of sleeping in a tent. Or building your own adventure holiday, but with the guidance of experts. Our Real Family Holidays offer a way to enjoy all the best bits of a nature holiday, while taking any discomfort, time-consuming research and organisation, or safety concerns out of the equation.
