The perfect summer family getaway in Argyll

With the school summer holidays around the corner, there has never been a better time to book a last-minute break!

The perfect summer family getaway in Argyll

Staycations are on the rise. In fact, ABTAs travel trends report 2017 revealed that domestic vacations in the UK rose to 71% in 2016 – up from 64% in 2015. With breath-taking views, plenty of fresh air, activities to suit every taste and plenty of R&R, Argyll Holidays provides the ultimate family holiday.

With eight holidays parks to choose from, Argyll Holidays offers a location to suit every family.

For Active Families
Voted the country’s ‘Best Family Holiday Park’ in the Scottish Outdoor and Leisure Awards 2016, Drimsynie Estate Holiday Village, near Lochgoilhead, is the perfect retreat for all the family. With magnificent west Highland scenery to explore and thrilling outdoor activities, from archery and fencing to crazy carts and body zorbing, there is something for everyone.

There’s also a variety of on-site activities for all ages. Children under 7 can learn to ride their bikes with Argyll Holidays Balanceability programme, go on a swashbuckling adventure with the Pirate’s Paradise gang, or even explore Drimsynie with the whole family on the exciting Go Quest! woodland trail.

There are a range of caravans available across the holiday parks including the spacious two-bedroom Premier caravan at Drimsynie. Comfortably sleeping a family of four, the lounge area is finished with a stylish and modern interior, and with plenty of seating it is perfect for dining and relaxing with the whole family. The premium caravan also comes complete with a fully equipped kitchen, central heating and a flat screen TV with selected satellite channels.

Four nights stay for family of four at Drimsynie in July starts from £349.00.

With luxury caravans and lodges, Hunters Quay is another popular choice for families. The on-site leisure complex is perfect for water babies, where they can spend the weekend splashing around in the two heated swimming pools and even try their hand at snorkelling. For parents looking to relax they can enjoy a quiet minute in the sauna, steam room or jacuzzi - or even visit the on-site spa for an indulgent pamper.

The two bedroom accessible caravan at Hunters Quay is perfect for families with additional needs. Sleeping four, it has a fully equipped kitchen and an innovative wet room, as well as an accessible private balcony with outdoor furniture.

Four nights stay for family of four at Hunters Quay in July starts from £299.00.

For Explorers
Argyll is the perfect place to explore what Scotland has to offer on foot. From leisurely family strolls to Munro bagging, there is something for all ages and abilities. One of the most popular walks is the Dukes Pass near to Argyll Holiday’s Drimsynie Estate Holiday Village, where you will be treated to some of the most scenic views of the iconic Trossachs landscape.

Loch Awe holiday park is a short drive from the popular coastal town of Oban. Here you can amble along the seaside streets and enjoy some of the best Scottish seafood the country has to offer. For those looking to venture out to the Scottish islands, catch the ferry from Oban over to the neighbouring Hebridean island of Mull and enjoy a day exploring the charming Tobermory main street.

Four nights stay for a family of four at Loch Awe in July starts from £315.00.

For Water Lovers
All of Argyll Holiday Parks are located close to the water. Loch Lomond Holiday Park sits right on the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond and is perfect for families who love watersports.

There’s a private jetty for those who have their own boats and want to tour the world famous Loch at their leisure, or for the non-sailors there are regular touring boat trips across the water, including a sunset cruise offering spectacular views.

Families can hire kayaks to explore their surroundings or partake in some fishing. There’s also regular wakeboarding displays and classes giving thrill seekers a new challenge.

With a brilliant selection of exclusive lodges, including some with hot tubs, and caravans Loch Lomond Holiday Park is the ultimate in luxury and is ideal for families with older kids looking for escapism and quality family time together.

Four nights stay for a family of four at Loch Lomond in July starts from £349.00.
