The Holiday

1. Do you provide transport?

We have families travelling from all over the UK so can’t provide transport but we do encourage car sharing. Please do post on our forum to see if anyone lives nearby.

2.  I don’t know anyone…

You’re in the majority! Most of the families on the trip will never have met before – your coordinator will arrange get togethers and events to bring the group together. You may be strangers to begin with, you’ll end up leaving as friends. There is a buffet on the first night that is always a good icebreaker.

3. What is the board basis?

This holiday is self catering – there will be some group meals including a pizza making evening!

 4. What is included in the price of the holiday?

SWK have exclusive use of the whole site! The cost is based on your own private Tipi for families of 3 and more or a shared Yurt.

The holiday will be accompanied by a Single With Kids coordinator who will organise group events and outings. These events are not obligatory, feel free to dip in and out as you choose.

5. How big will the group be?

This is a medium sized trip. There are 4 private 5 bedded Tipis and 5 Yurts  2 x 5 bedded and 3 x 6 bedded – the total spaces available are 48 which is around 14 families.
