The Holiday Village Difference

To say Holiday Villages are a cut above the average family hotel is like saying Jamie Oliver’s not bad in the kitchen. It doesn’t even begin to cover it. Here’s some of the stuff that puts us in a different league…

    Pool Assault Course

    Twin Tracks is the latest addition to our wacky water inflatables and perfect for ages 6 and up. It’s an inflatable assault course for the pool that two people can tackle at the same time.

  • no-image


    Ages 5 and over can run on water in these huge inflatable balls. Or ‘human hamster wheels’, as we like to call them.

  • no-image

    Water Rollers

    Race your mates on the pool’s surface in these inflatable tubes - aimed at energetic over 6s. If you like these, you’ll love our ‘water wacky races’, too.

  • no-image


    Ages 6 and up can take to the pool in our inflatable canoes for games, races and general water-themed frivolity. We’ve got peddle boats and bumper boats designed for little people under 6, too.

    High Rope Adventures

    All Holiday Villages have a different assault course, where we rig you up in a harness and you’re free to swing, climb and walk across all types of routes. Some height restrictions apply, but they’re generally open to everyone over 6, even mums and dads - so no chickening out.

    When we say we’ve got every type of sport going, we’re not kidding. We’ve even got aeroball. That’s basketball on a trampoline, in case you’re wondering.

    From Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games to Hawkeye in the Avengers, being nifty with a bow and arrow has never been cooler. Ages 6 and up can perfect their skills at our expert-led archery sessions.

    Sports & Activities

    Rounders, football, crazy golf – you name it, we’ve got it. Plus, there are circus workshops, treasure hunts and raft-building challenges. This lot's aimed at all ages.

    Nightly Live Shows

    From the power rock classics of Anthem Legends to the TV-inspired HV’s Got Talent, we’ve got more live shows and cabaret sets than you can shake a mic at – and there’s a different one showing every night.

    LED Stage Backdrops

    All our stages are backed by state-of-the-art interactive digital screens, which take the entertainment experience to a whole new level. They’re also the stars of the HView cinema sessions, where you can catch screenings of hit family films.

    Holiday Villages host Splashathons on selected dates over the summer, where tots, kids and grown-ups can all sign up for pool-based activities and challenges in aid of the fantastic UK baby charity, Tommy’s. Kids’ TV favourite Peppa Pig is a huge fan – she’s been supporting the charity since 2006 – so we theme some of the antics around her.

  • no-image

    Family Theme Days

    We’ve done everything from an Olympics-themed Sports Day, to a Pirate Day that Jack Sparrow would have been proud of. This summer we’re getting out the giant Twister out for Retro day and we’re planning a great Reality TV day, too.
