Holiday activity clubs

When holidaying with young children it can be hard to keep them entertained all the time. It may be that this is the only break you get from work or from looking after the children, so it seems fair that you also need some down time and time to do activities you enjoy.

Holiday clubs are a fantastic idea, allowing the parents and children to have fun whilst also having time to themselves. Many holiday resorts offer holiday clubs where children can go along for a few hours and spend time doing activities such as painting, treasure hunting and water sports.

With parents having a few hours to venture out and do something they enjoy, or just relax in the room or caravan, these holiday clubs are a must for families.

Often holiday clubs are included in the price you pay for the stay, but if not they do not usually cost very much.

Crab fishing holidays

If you are looking for an activity for all the family to join in when away on holiday then crab fishing is definitely something you should try. Crab fishing can be done at many seaside locations around the country and is usually carried out on a pier. Cromer and Shell Island are both famous for its excellent crab fishing locations and many people flock there each year because of it.

Unlike fishing, crab fishing can be seen as less cruel and even the most inexperienced crab fisher can catch something. The bait you use is often a big factor when it comes to crabs and also the location in which you position yourself.

With little ones fascinated by the crabs and adults enjoying the competitive side to the experience it really is a great day out for all the family and best of all, it hardly costs anything to do. You can even fish with left over fish or bacon!



Organised adventure holidays

With many people looking for something a little bit more thrilling than a beach holiday, holiday tour operators have started to offer organised adventure holiday package.

The tour operator will sit down with you and discuss where you want to go, how long for and who with. They will then recommend a list of activities you can do in a particular area and together you can create your own personalised holiday plan. They will often even organise your transport to and from the place where the activities is and your accommodation settings.

These types of holidays are not cheap but as you have tailor made the holiday yourself, you can relax knowing what you have got to look forward too. These are great types of holidays to book for couples on honeymoon as you also get time to bond whilst on an adventure holiday and can even schedule in a bit of time for sun bathing on the beach or a sport of shopping.

Fishing holidays

Fishing holidays are very popular amongst people of all ages and can be enjoyed alone, with friends and with family. There are hundreds of different types of fishing holidays available to you, depending on what you are looking for.

If you want to spend the majority of the trip fishing, then you would want to either book a specifically designed fishing tour holiday or arrange it yourself, knowing in advance where the places are to go to fish and ensuring you have the appropriate licenses.

You can opt for a fishing holiday where you stay on a boat for the entire trip travelling round the ocean. You will be fishing off the side of the boat and then may port at a few locations to allow you to get off and go and explore the local surrounds and get a bite to eat.

Fishing holidays range massively in price as there is so many options available, but the cheapest way to do it is to organise one yourself.

A treehouse adventure

If you’re looking for a family holiday with a real sense of adventure why not try a treehouse holiday. These incredible treehouses can be found both in the UK and abroad and look spectacular sent out amongst the canopy of the trees. You’ll certainly need a head for heights and sense of adventure but this type of holiday would be fun even for the most reluctant teenager! A holiday adventure like this really takes everyone back to their youth climbing rope ladders and walking across wobbly bridges to get to different parts of the accommodation.

Needless to say due to the nature of the accommodation they would not be suitable for young children but would be perfect for those a little older and even as a group of fun-loving adults.

And you may be in a tree but there’s no need to rough it either as you can actually get a luxury treehouse with a fully functioning bathroom, whatever next?!
