Great Ideas for Family Summer Holidays in the UK
It is getting increasingly difficult to spend quality time with growing children. It also seems that year on year children become increasingly divorced from the outdoor environment with their world becoming ever more sanitised and risk averse. For instance whatever happened to traditional activities such as climbing a tree? Adventure Britain have therefore come up with a Summer activity break during the school holidays just for parents and children whther it be fathers or mothers and daughters or mothers and sons set in the stunning natural adventure playground, the Brecon Beacons National Park.
In 2018 96.5% of our customers rated their activities with us good or excellent in terms of their overall experience and value for money.

“My son and I had a great stay at Call of the Wild. The staff were fantastic, as was the rock-climbing and gorge walk. We thoroughly enjoyed ourself and hope to see you all again, perhaps with the rest of the family next time.” P.Moran 2018
”Just wanted to say what a great time Isaac and I had over the weekend and could you please pass my thanks onto Dave and the rest of the team for making it so enjoyable. Many thanks” S. Folker 2019
”On behalf of both little Holly and me I wanted to thank your company and ALL of the staff involved in these last 2 days from the bottom of our heart. It exceeded our expectations and pushed us both beyond what we thought we could do. Little Holly took to it with gusto and made lovely friends in doing so. They were a fabulous crowd and we loved every minute. Our guides were tremendous – kind, thoughtful, funny and understanding and Jackie our cook was tremendous – all are a credit to your organisation. When you can, can you ask Dave to send the photos/videos of the gorge walking to my email as we can’t wait to relive it and share our memories with our loved ones”. J.Holmes 2019
