The place to book an opulent UK household getaway this October Half Time period
Some of our most popular country house hotels are also offering family-friendly attractions this half year. In the Surrey Hills, just 20 miles from London, the historic and glamorous Beaverbrook is the perfect place to sit on a sofa in the drawing room with a cocktail while your kids go to the kids’ club run by Sharky & George.
During halftime, the program comes into its own, focusing on high-octane forest adventures, treasure hunts, and fire-building, all from a base in a huge, hidden tree house. A one night Family Escape package, where two adults and one child share a room and have full access to Sharky & George’s activities and spa, costs from £ 515 per night.
Others to appeal are Ellenborough Park, which is 90 acres outside of Cheltenham, where kids stay and eat for free for over half the semester. There is a fenced outdoor heated pool, family treasure hunts, and Halloween painting competitions.
