Great Ideas for Family Summer Holidays in the UK

Cost £350 Total For Father and Son

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 father and sons set in the stunning natural adventure playground, Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons) National Park.

In 2023 96.7% of our customers rated their activities with us good or excellent in terms of their overall experience and value for money. In 2021 this rose to 98%

”We both really enjoyed the event and it had a great balance of active and down time. Staff were really great, patient and well informed. Great break, great value”. – M. Balshaw 2021

”Just a quick note to say myself and my son had a lovely time. Please pass on my thanks to Ed, Cynan, John and the rest of the team for making the experience so enjoyable”. – F. Kabar 2021

The team were all in good form and the food/refreshments and activities excellent again. It’s a difficult time but the work ethic and organisation from everyone involved was exemplary, particularly given the added burden of the COVID restrictions; which in our opinion didn’t detract from anything. We love the event, the location and the team. We’ll be back again next year for sure. Cheers Steve & George 😃👍 – S Hayward 2020

A quick note to thank you all for a brilliant trip. Everyone was excellent and took great care of us all. The kids had a blast and will have awesome memories of their brief trip to Brecon. –  J De Maria 2020

”I thought the Father & Son break was fantastic. We had never done anything like it before, but our inexperience wasn’t an issue and we were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. The whole break was incredibly well organised. The instructors were friendly and encouraging. I would highly recommend it”. S. Corbett – 2019

”We all really enjoyed our experience this year. The boys enjoyed being with other kids their ages and exploring together. Loved the hike and map reading, loved the gorge walking and climbing. I thought the crate building was genius. All the instructors were great, confident, clearly very experienced and fun. Took the Dads a bit longer to warm up, but that’s just grownups – right? It was nice to chat with everyone and share parenting experiences. Lots of similarities which was comforting. Great trip. Thoroughly enjoyed. Not sure on our summer plans in 2020 yet, but would certainly recommend if asked”. A. Odds – 2019

You can change these activities if they don't suit your requirements. For instance you can substitute quad biking with climbing, caving, paintballing or clay pigeon shooting to name but a few. Please note if you decide to change the choice of activities it may impact price and transport options.


Gorge Walking

The best way of describing our activity is a river adventure . With our guides, you travel through a steep sided gorge following the course of the river by various ways and means. This can involve sliding down rapids, swimming down rapids, floating down fast flowing chutes and waves, climbing beside waterfalls and of course jumping off those adrenalin pumping 20ft ledges into deep pool.

Mountain Walks

You will be guided by our qualified instructors and can either just enjoy the scenery or pick up some mountain skills such as navigation and map reading. Most of the time you’ll be amazed by the stunning views as a new vista appears around every corner or over the next brow of the hill. Our mountain guides have extensive local knowledge so will be explaining about mans influence through the ages on the landscape, it geology and geography, flora and fauna.

Rock Climbing UK

Climbing is a rock activity. What goes up must come down – well firmly attached to a rope anyway. A great way of seeing the majestic Brecon Beacons National Park scenery & that of the Gower- even hanging upside down. Rock climbing in Wales is about putting on a climbing harness and enjoying yourself in the outdoors on boulders and outcrops, in old quarries and sea cliffs and remote mountain crags.

All included so you don’t have to worry about finding anywhere for your group to eat.


To and from activity venues. It’s difficult enough in an unfamiliar place to find a venue with a map or sat nav when you have a group of loud lads in the car. Therefore this option makes sense.
