Welcome to Acorn Family Holidays!

If you're bored of the standard beach holiday and want to have fun in the great outdoors with your family, you've come to the right place.
We specialise in family activity holidays in the UK & Europe. Our holidays are well geared for active families who love outdoor adventure and are packed full of adrenaline fuelled activities, guaranteed to keep the kids (and you!) happy. Whether it’s water sports or land-based activities you love, there’s something for everyone.
We have some amazing holidays to choose from and all of our destinations in France, Spain, Italy and the UK are ideally located for adventure, with mountains, lakes, beaches and rivers close by…
Enjoy adventures together, make memories…

Family holidays are all about enjoying quality time together and our adventure holidays offer so many opportunities for you to have fun and make memories. Leave the gadgets & gizmos behind because you won’t need them (we promise!)  From canoeing to high ropes, climbing to stand up paddleboarding, there’s a wide range of family friendly water sports and land based activities included in your holiday, ensuring you are making the most of this time altogether.

With lots going on each day, there’s  plenty of time to unwind in the evenings and have some adult conversation with a much deserved glass of wine, knowing the kids are happy and safe playing freely with their new found friends.

With everything taken care of, you can relax and enjoy your holiday, knowing there will be no arguments or grumbles about what to do that day and you’ll leave with lifelong memories. Most importantly, the planning and organisation (and the cooking!) is all taken care of so you can have a holiday too!

Some lovely reviews from our customers

It was awesome! The children have said that it was by far the best holiday we have had as a family. Staff were fun and friendly and encouraged us all to push ourselves. The timetable was well planned and kept us all busy. Lovely having it all planned for us. Brilliant!


Just back home from a week at the Ardeche centre. Couldn’t recommend it highly enough. First class food, even freshly prepared on the river bank. Brilliant. Instructors very knowledgeable and brimming with enthusiasm. Steve and Lauren caving – great. Rich( dick) homer kayaking super. And Becky on the decent – brilliant. Thanks again. Kids in bed, me soaking in the bath! Cheers Paul( the daft bald fireman).

My 5 year old daughter is still, 3 weeks later, talking about the paddleboard instructor (he looked a bit like David Walliams!!) who put her in the water to splash around, whilst I got chance to paddleboard. Awesome day! Thanks to him please, as otherwise I would have had to leave the activity as I did with kayaking. Much appreciated! Thanks to everyone. Faultless holiday. Perfect.

If you want happy, exhausted children then try this holiday. There was an excellent mix of activities and evening entertainment that we would not change and left my son wanting more
