Programme, activities and the local area

Mum and Dad after the assault course

We have designed fantastic, exciting programmes for you and your family on our Normandy adventure holiday. Climbing, canoeing & bread making to name but a few, or amazing outings like a spectacular walk across the bay to Mont St. Michel. We have superb facilities on site within our 100 acre estate including our mini-farm which is loved by old and young alike, we even have our own cider press.

The beauty of our holiday is based around the idea that parents can do amazing activities such as clay pigeon shooting whilst we look after and entertain the children. Children have a wide variety of supervised activities to choose from that they can do without their parents such as archery, climbing and orienteering. We also provide activities for the whole family to do together, along with other families, such as It's a knock-out and the ever popular assault course.

Of course nothing is obligatory and whilst there is always something going on to entertain you, you can also opt out and choose to do your own thing. We are in a region blessed with many attractions, from beautiful beaches to towns and villages steeped in both ancient and modern history, which you are free to explore at your leisure.

Finally, at the end of each day and after a nutritious and tasty dinner, our animation team will join everyone to organise a variety of fun evening activities.

Below you can see some sample programmes from last season to give you a flavour of the fantastic week in store for you and your family.

What's included within your Chicks (3-5yrs) programme

Your chicks have their own area with a paddling pool, house and toys. We will supervise some play sessions but generally this will be with parents rather than instead of parents, though there is plenty of scope for parents to share those duties with parents of other chicks.

By far and away the biggest favourite of the chicks is our mini-farm with its chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs, quals and pigs and they can play in the mini-farm whenever they want so long as they are with mum or dad or a member of our team. As well as that we run a couple of arts & crafts sessions during the week. There is a great trampoline which is fully enclosed and really good fun. The trips out to Champrepus zoo (optional extra) and the bay walk with its vast area of sand and paddling is excellent as are the local beaches at Caroles and Juilloville. We do daily bike tours for adults and have a couple of child bike seats available for those interested in biking.
