Five thrill-seeking holidays for single-parent families, offering watersports, bike rides – and endangered turtles
Acorn Adventure specialises in active camping holidays for families in Wales, France, Italy and Spain. Accommodation is in tented “villages”, which are already set up, and all activities, meals and evening entertainment are included. Acorn runs a handful of trips exclusively for one-parent families, including a week in the Ardèche, southern France, the highlight of which is a two-day canoe trip along the Ardèche river gorge, with overnight bivouac camp. There will also be opportunities to try out abseiling, caving, raft building and rock climbing, and there’s an on-site swimming pool, volleyball court and riverside beach where kids can let off steam. Single-parent families are welcome on any of the company’s other holidays.
• A six-night holiday departing on 5 August costs £409 per adult and £359 per child, including accommodation, meals and activities. Options include a package with coach travel from Manchester, Birmingham or London. acornfamilyholidays.co.uk
