Holidays for Single Parent Families in Devon

We welcome all families to our adventure breaks here at Adventure Okehampton, in our two centres on the edge of Dartmoor (Devon).  Don't worry if you are a single parent, or it’s just that you both can’t get away with the kids this holiday, there's plenty of opportunity to mix with other families when you're on our Adventure Holidays. We find that all our guests mix well together creating a relaxed, friendly environment for the children as much as the adults. You will get to know the other families staying during your activity sessions when you will be small groups of 12-14, you can then continue the conversations in more comfortable surroundings over dinner, then over glass of wine whilst the children enjoy their new friendships happily playing in the games rooms.

We try to ensure our holidays are priced to match all pockets. Our prices include full board, selected activities and family room. You can reduce your costs as we accept Tesco Club Vouchers for the accommodation part of your stay, but you are advised to book early if you wish to use these and must state this at the time of booking.  If you are looking to reduce your holiday costs further you could taking our camping adventure holiday, as you can save on the accommodation element.

Extra activities can be added to the package if you want to stretch the family further or add extra nights accommodation only, if you want a rest afterwards!
