Why our resorts are perfect for skip-gen holidays
1 August 2018
Skip-gen holidays are on the rise. This latest travel trend, which sees grandparents taking their grandchildren away on holiday without mum and dad, offers the perfect opportunity to create new memories, mark any big milestones, and give parents a well-deserved break!
So if you fancy whisking your grandchildren away on a holiday to remember, here’s four reasons why our resorts tick all the boxes.
Location, location, location
Our resorts are located in some of the UK’s best-loved holiday destinations. From seaside breaks in Cornwall to action-packed adventures in the Lake District, you’ll never be short of things to see and do in the local area. Plus, with many of the local towns and villages just a short walk away, you and the grandchildren can steer clear of any long car journeys and be back at base within minutes if need be.
With many of our lodges sleeping up to six people, there’s plenty of space for growing families. With comfortable lounge areas, you have the freedom to enjoy cosy nights in playing games or watching a movie. Many of our lodges have also been specially designed for little ones. The cosy mezzanine room in The Glass Lodge at Clowance has twin beds and has been decorated with cave paintings, while the Newlands Lodge at Whitbarrow features a children’s den complete with pebble cushions and autumnal wallpaper.
A long list of on-site facilities
With indoor pools, play areas, and plenty of other activities including table tennis, mini golf, and croquet, there’s plenty to keep little ones occupied during your stay. Clowance is surrounded by 97 acres of landscaped parkland and even has a boating lake and woodland trails to explore. And with each resort featuring its own on-site restaurant and bar, you can even take the kids out for a relaxed bite to eat and leave the washing up to us!
A jam-packed activities schedule
There are a whole host of activities taking place at each of our resorts during the school holidays. From Easter egg hunts and arts and craft sessions, to woodland walks and nature trails, there’s plenty for the grandchildren to get stuck into throughout the year. And with a variety of activities taking place each day during the holidays, you can dive right in and make some memories together, or slip away and enjoy some time to yourself at the resort spa.
This autumn, not only can you enjoy 15% off your break, but you will receive a complimentary bottle of Taittinger Champagne and the little ones will dine for free throughout your stay! Find out more about our autumn offer here.
