Family holidays

Our range of children’s activities makes it easy for families with children of all ages to plan a holiday that everyone will love.

Each day is a big adventure, with organised games, craft and activities, as well as evening entertainment at our ‘Kids’ Zone’ and ‘XA Club‘ where they can play safely and meet new friends. There’s two miles of sandy beach right outside the door and surf lessons, rock pooling and caves to explore; your children will never want to go home!

All our staff have valid DBS checks in place (formerly CRB) and are experienced with qualifications ranging from Child Care Level 3 through to Early Years Professional Status, Playwork Practitioners and Primary teaching degrees.

Supervised sessions

Closed supervised sessions are available each day. These are sessions run by our highly qualified kids team, where children can be signed in to play group games, enjoy crafts, story telling and lots of other fun activities. As these are closed sessions, we cannot allow access to any other person during this time.

The sessions require booking on a daily basis at the Kids’ Zone reception as places are limited. From 8am in school holidays and 9am in term time. During the sessions parents must remain on the hotel premises. Outside of these closed sessions, the rooms are free for guests to use as they wish, but a parent or guardian must be present at all times.

* School holiday dates relate to standard school term times, please check with our Reservations Team on 01637 860543, for specific dates.
