Designed especially for families with kids of any age, these holidays feature a choice of three child-friendly guided walks during the day with highlights on the Isle of Wight including walking on the chalk cliffs on Tennyson Down, following the Shepherd’s Trail to Carisbrooke Castle and walking along the coastal path to Sandown.

A seven-night holiday starting 29 March costs £649 per adult, with children (11 to 17 years and sharing with an adult) paying £324, whilst under 11s are free of charge. A three and four-night break is also available at this time.

Or, families can explore the Yorkshire Dales – with highlights including walking along the Pennine Way and to Malham Cove, Gordale Scar and the waterfall of Janet’s Foss. Accommodation is at the company’s Newfield Hall Country House – situated in two acres of grounds – where facilities include a putting green, indoor heated pool and a range of board games and books.
