Families still looking for a peak season holiday should check out the selection of guided walking family-friendly breaks – based at HF Holidays UK Country Houses – which are still available during August.
There’s a fantastic Kids go free offer on the seven-night Guided Walking for Families holiday – starting 21 August – on the Isle of Arran where the company is offering one free child place – valid for children up to 17 years – per one full paying adult. Based on sharing an en suite family room, the price per adult is £613 inclusive of accommodation at the company’s Altachorvie Country House.
The choice of guided walks each walking day – easier for younger kids and harder for active teenagers – includes highlights such as the mysterious standing stones on Macrie Moor, a coastal walk to Lochranza and scrambling on Goatfell ridge.
Or, head to Exmoor on a seven-night Guided Walking for Families holiday – starting 14 August – at Holnicote House near Selworthy which, based on sharing an en suite family room, costs £649 per adult, £324 per child (aged four to 17 years and sharing with two adults) and under fours are free of charge.
Walking options include climbing Selworthy Beacon, looking for herds of red deer and wild ponies on moorland and woodland and taking in the high sea cliffs along the South West Coast Path.
All prices include full board, the programme of organised walks and social activities, transport to/from the walks, plus the services of an HF Holidays’ walks leader.
