Our Real Family Holidays - Tara
A letter to a friend in need
Hi, you need to get yourself and the kids on a new type of holiday. We’ve been going on Real Family Holidays https://www.real-family-holidays.org/ , run by the environmental education charity, FSC. They are brilliant!
Look at the pictures - young Will absolutely loves it, and so do we. They’re based in amazing locations and are totally focused on getting the kids outside enjoying and learning about the natural world around them.
So far we have taken part in fire lighting, damper bread making, pond dipping, mini beast hunts, geo-caching, den building, rock-pooling, rocket launching and mini raft building - they’re awesome!
The Centres you stay in each have a family /games room, and it's great to see the kids enjoying themselves and playing outside. There are incredible areas to explore outside the Centres too – adventures galore to be had.
The food, which is all included, is delicious – and there are big helpings! Tea and coffee are available all day, and there’s homemade cake for everyone in the afternoon. The staff are unbelievably friendly – and knowledgeable.
We’ve done at least one Real Family Holiday each year for the last three, and I couldn’t imagine a summer without one. Will always asks me “Are we going to a centre this year, mammy?” You bet we are, and he beams when I tell him. We've already booked for this Summer.
So get yourself and the kids booked in. You’ll love it.
