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.

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...

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!

'First Time Adventurers' - By Kelly Glover

My 10-year old daughter and I chose Acorn Adventure due to the list of activities on offer, summer holiday dates and location.
