FAQ's

 

Do i need to pack anything specific for an adventure holiday?

As these properties tend to be more rural and off the grid, we'd reccommend taking some sturdy walking shoes and a torch to make sure you can get around safely. While the majority of the properties offer electricity points where you'll be sleeping, it may be worth taking a power bank for your devices just incase. 

What age do my children need to be to take part in activities?

This will vary hugely depending on the activity, but for any adrenaline type activity such as climbing or abseiling the owners will be able to give you a very clear answer. If you're planning on taking along anyone under the age of 16 it's worth dropping the property a message to double check any age restrictions 

Do we have to do activities every day?

Absolutely not, this is your break so you do it your way. You can book as many or as few activities as you'd like, then spend the rest of the time relaxing and enjoying some peace and tranquility.
