A fantastic value family break in historic Herefordshire, in the beautiful and charming market town of Leominster. Staying in a converted priory building with an idyllic garden and a huge park close by for the kids to let off some steam, it’s the ideal location for single parent families to spend a fun and relaxing October half term together – plus there’s loads to do in the local area, from paintball and quad biking to exploring medieval castles and shopping ’til you drop.
The location of our half term holiday simply couldn’t be better for experiencing everything this unique area has to offer. We’re in the heart of Leominster, where a lazy afternoon stroll takes you to a mix of antique stores, cosy pubs and traditional shops, and you can also sample delicious local produce such as award-winning cheeses and cider.
Nestled in the glorious Herefordshire countryside, this spot is a walkers and cyclist’s paradise, with lots of trails, hikes and scenery to explore and enjoy. History buffs will love the stately homes, fascinating museums and incredible architecture of Leominster and nearby Hereford, and kids of all ages will practically burst with excitement with all the many nearby attractions including Oaker Wood Leisure activity site, the Owl Centre and the West Midlands Safari Park.
This is a 3 night break from Saturday 19th October to Tuesday 22nd October 2019, in the half-term holidays.
Leominster itself can eat up a thoroughly enjoyable few days, with its delicious local produce and charming mix of shops. Walkers can easily access the Mortimer Trail and enjoy incredible scenery walking through the Marches of England, while cyclists can wheel through the lovely Tudor black and white villages and down quiet country lanes.
Want excitement? Get the blood pumping with family-friendly paintballing, quad biking, tree trekking and raft building at Oaker Wood Leisure, or spot some furry and feathered friends at the Owl Centre or West Midlands Safari Park.

" Lovely central location. Fantastic organiser, Becky. Small group but very friendly. Great day out to West Midlands Safari Park. Will absolutely be booking with SWK again. "
" From the moment Jude and I arrived we were made to feel so welcome. Such a friendly group of kids and grownups. This was our first SWK trip and we were both a bit nervous but we shouldn’t have been as the atmosphere is lovely and inclusive. Jude has already told me we are coming back next year but for longer.
" This is our third Single With Kids trip and our first UK trip. We have had three wonderful days / nights at the Fort in Wales. Cath is a super star. The group (although some knew each other) were so friendly, welcoming and kind. We have made so many special memories and we can’t wait to book our new SWK adventure.
" What a great weekend with fantastic people in the most beautiful venue. The activities were all great fun, but the best thing about the trip was the way the children were able to play freely outdoors from dusk to dawn. Becky is the best coordinator too!
" Really great break and well coordinated by Jo. It’s been lovely spending time with the other families making memories. Great first experience with Single With Kids.

" Another fabulous holiday in another great location. The white water rafting was particularly appreciated. SWK make holidays so easy. My son, as have I have made lovely friendships. We will be back for more.
" BBQ and camp fire singing was great especially cake and candles on my birthday. Grant and his able assistant Phil we're a brilliant double act and had just the right balance between co ordinating and fun. Best holiday we've had in a long time. We all had friends to play with and have already arranged to meet up next half term. "
" it was a great venue and experience. It's so good to see kids run wild with nature and have fun without so much as a ride, slot machine or electronic game in sight. "
" A great holiday in fun accommodation. Even though this was our second year there were still plenty of new things to do as well as going back to the places we loved the most. Linda was a great coordinator taking care of everyone. "
