Throughout the year you can join in a wide range of special activities and themed breaks which run at the hotels. Use the search facility to the left to find a holiday to suit you or view the holidays brochure online.
In most cases the special activities are an addition to the regular programme, with our hotels being open as normal for guests, and so you can choose whether or not to take part.
Photographer or singer; bird watcher or painter; country dancer or gardener; crafts enthusiast or walker - there's a wide range of interest breaks and holidays to choose from. Activity and Interest Breaks give you the chance to try something new, perfect existing skills, discover new interests and meet new people.
Our guests are of all ages, young and young at heart, and so we offer some breaks geared towards particular age groups, but you are welcome at any time, whatever your age.
With over 30 walking breaks to choose from through the seasons you can be sure of finding something that suits you. All are, of course, led by experienced leaders and take in some of the most beautiful areas of England.
Sit back and let someone else do the driving! You can join coach holidays running from several areas of the country to our centres. Please note that travel costs to and from the hotels are payable in addition to our standard Terms.
