Acorn Village Life

The accommodation is all part of Acorn’s ‘adventure experience’, but without the discomfort and hassle often associated with camping. We aim to make camping easy with all the benefits of sleeping under the stars in comfort and we even do all the cooking! As well as easy family camping in pre-erected tents (with beds), we offer cabins in Spain, camping pods in Wales and en-suite rooms in the Dordogne and Malta. There's something to suit every family and all of our accommodation options and destinations are designed to encourage a really sociable holiday for the adults and kids alike. 

Camping made easy

We believe that all children should get to experience the wonders of camping, which is why we also specialise in school and youth group adventure holidays. ( A family camping holiday is even more special because it encourages ‘quality family time’; that essential and rare time away from gadgets and the busy aspects of day-to-day family life. A chance to lose yourselves in the tranquillity that only nature brings as well as to try new things together as a family. Conquering fears and enjoying a lot of laughter along the way! Lots of families like the idea of camping, but are put off by some of the work involved, such as how to fit everything in the car, buying and storing food and cooking and washing up (something many of us go on holiday to escape!). With us family camping is easy. All the benefits of camping in the great outdoors, without the hassle! Our family camping villages offer pre-erected standing height tents with beds and parent tents (because we know you prefer a little more to the kids) include fridges (oveseas), electricity, a wardrobe and light. Our staff cook and serve your meals in your marquee which is central to your village, leaving you time to spend as a family or socialising with the other like-minded families on your village. After dinner, our team keep the children entertained with a busy evening programme leaving you time to relax. Or you can join in on the fun!

Here are our accommodation options:


Our popular family tented villages offer all the joys of camping without the hassle and discomfort. Our comfortable standing height tents are pre-erected with proper raised beds, lighting, table, solid flooring and net inner, offering families a personal space for sleeping, dining and socialising. Families of 4 or more receive a primary and a secondary tent as standard and families of less than 4 are provided with a secondary tent. Primary tent upgrades are available for a small extra charge, subject to availability. Primary tents at our overseas camps offer a few extras including electric sockets and fridges. For those without this, there are electric points in the central marquee for charging phones and a main fridge that can be used by guests staying on the village. 

Each village is made up of up to 22 tents with a central marquee for dining & socialising. There is a play area in the middle and our villages offer families a friendly, safe, relaxed and sociable environment. Available at:

En-suite Family Rooms

The Mediterranean Adventure centre offers rustic en-suite wooden cabins, which retain a sense of adventure but are clearly more substantial and offer greater space for the whole family.
