Family Adventure Holidays in the UK and Europe!

ACORN FAMILY HOLIDAYS are adventure specialists, offering an exciting range of all-inclusive, fully organised family activity holidays in France, Italy, Spain and Wales for families with children age 5+.

Our family activity holidays offer a wide range of adventurous activities in stunning locations. From the Ardeche region in the South of France to the Brecon Beacons National Park, Wales, there is a destination to suit the whole family. Wherever you choose, this is a holiday that guarantees fun for everyone, without compromise. No more bored children, or adults for that matter!      

We have just launched our 2015 holidays, which includes a new Adventure Camp in Northern France and brand new camping pod accommodation in the Brecon Beacons!    


Enjoy a summer in the great outdoors! 

Escaping to `the great outdoors` is becoming an increasingly popular activity for families because it offers the best possible `quality time` away from the distractions of everyday life. Our family holidays make the most of natural outdoor environments; whether it's canoeing down the Ardeche River or enjoying a campfire. The majority of our holidays offer the camping experience (without the hassle!). Our pre-erected tented villages offer standing height tents, with comfortable raised beds and are set out in a horseshoe shape with a central marquee which is the `hub` of the family camping village. There is a play area and our staff provide evening entertainment for the children, leaving you to drink wine and enjoy the company of other like-minded parents. A holiday for everyone! 


The all-inclusive aspect of our holidays, with activities, transport on coach holidays, meals and evening entertainment makes this a really easy holiday to organise and budget for. For those seeking a little more independence, we also have a great range of self/fly-drive holidays.

We also offer exclusive single parent holidays!

Single parent families are welcome on all of our family activtity holidays. Because we know some prefer to share their holiday with other like minded single parent families, we have some fixed departures on our summer activity holiday schedule which have been created exclusively for single parent families. These single parent family activity holidays have doubled in popularity in each of the past two years and the feedback received is always brilliant. In fact they are so popular that we have teamed up with the Single Parent Travel Club who have recently travelled to our Brecon Beacons adventure camp and realised how perfect our family activity holidays are for them. Despite having more on offer this year, we still expect them to sell out quickly this year. Click here to see the selection we have available.

Frequently asked questions

Are the activities instructed in English?

Yes, all sessions are held in English. Our instructors are our employees - recruited and trained by us.  This is one of the best parts of an Acorn holiday.  Our staff really do make all the difference - they are incredibly dedicated to giving you the best possible holiday.

In Italy, we use expert local White Water Rafting instructors who know the Dora Baltea river like the back of their hands.  They are usually Italian, but always speak very good English.  Our staff usually also accompany each raft so there will be someone familiar with you at all times.
