Activity-filled Family Holiday by the Sea – ideas within 30 mins of your Beach House

activity-filled family holiday UK

School holidays are for trying new experiences, learning a new skill, reconnecting as a family, a break away from screens. We can guarantee an activity-filled family holiday by the sea.  

What are the moments you discuss around the dinner table for years after your holiday? Often we find ourselves remembering new experiences or being outdoors all together or competing around the golf course? Activity-filled family holidays are always a hit, especially when it can be a challenge to get the kids off their screens. By the end of this break by the sea they won’t remember why they even use screens! Get out into the fresh air, take exercise, learn a new skill, explore as a family, and tell the stories for years to come.

When you head home from your outdoor adventures the fun continues with hot tubs bubbling at 38 degrees overlooking the endless horizon of the sea, boardgames galore and you can even curl up to the crackling fire and enjoy a movie night. We’ve rounded up some of the best experiences for families within 30 mins drive of your luxury beach house. These experiences also include options if the weather isn’t playing up to the hopes for a beach walk or sailing adventure. Because all weather is enjoyable.

Our luxury beachfront properties can sleep up to 20 so gather a group of families and share the fun.
