Ardeche flooding update

There have been severe floods in the South of France over the last few days, less so in the Ardeche region. Acorn's Ardeche campsite has had a lot of rain, but has not experienced any flooding. Despite some amendments to the river programme, the Centre is open and operating as usual. We expect the river activities to be operating again soon. In the meantime, alternative activities will be provided.

The weather forecast for the next week, as reported by the MET office, is mostly sunny and dry. Some rain is expected again on Monday but the rest of the week is forecast to be clear. The river water levels are dropping.

Acorn's Ardeche centre is therefore open for business and all of our holidays are continuing as planned.

If you have any further questions please call 01384 398870.

Holidays make children happier and smarter...

If you are looking for a reason why you should finally book that summer holiday this year for your family, science says you should! 

According to an article written in The Telegraph, holidays make children happier and smarter. 

Why? Firstly, it's because of the quality time we spend with our children on holiday. In a typical day we spend two thirds of our time talking about the daily routine and many parents confess that they spend very little time playing with their children. Only 65% of parents say they play with their children occassionally. 

Secondly, holidays can advance brain development in children. I will leave you to read the full article on this. It's interesting.

A family holiday that gives you all a break!

The Telegraph has recent recommended us as a family holiday that gives everyone a break.

It's not easy to find a holiday that satisfies teenagers and parents (as I am sure you know from personal experience!) Sulking, boredom, tantrums (and that's just the parents). The last thing anyone wants is a much longed for holiday turning into a very expensive disaster. Let us free you from this problem...

The secret ingredients of the perfect family holiday include 1. Having plenty of organised activities that everyone can enjoy. 2. Having plenty of other like-minded families close by so that your kids have ready made friends and you have some much needed adult conversation (and time to relax).

New single parent family holiday 2018!

We are seeing huge popularity in our single parent family holidays this year, with most almost sold out completely. So, we have added a new single parent holiday to our Brecon Beacons Adventure centre this summer.

Our holidays are particularly popular with single parent families because everything is fully organised, everything is included and there are lots of other like minded people to share your holiday with (so both you and the children will make friends). Our holidays are extremely good value for money, action packed and lots of fun for you all! 

Dates

20th-24th August 2018

Fancy a staycation this summer?

Experience a Family Adventure in the Brecon Beacons from only £178pp!The staycation really took off last year and has accelerated again this year, with many of us realising there are some beautiful places right on our doorstep. And for great prices too! The Brecon Beacons National Park is a firm favourite and was recently voted one of the best National Parks in Europe by The Lonely Planet. Our Adventure centre is ideally located within the National Park on the shores of Llangores Lake, not far from the town of Brecon and within easy reach of the M50.
