Family holiday activity leaders

Family Walking Adventures are offered at a range of our UK Country Houses from the Isle of Wight, with holidays ideal for younger children, to the Scottish Highlands, more suited to older children. Holidays are action packed with led walks during the day and fun activities before and after dinner. Our Country Houses have great facilities for families – grounds to explore, games rooms and many have swimming pools.

Activity Leaders organise outdoor games and craft activities on our Family Walking Adventure holidays during half term, Easter and summer holidays. Appointments last from four days to five weeks.

About the role

Most holidays run from Saturday to Saturday or Friday to Friday with walks, guided by our walk leaders, offered on five days. Activity leaders organise games or craft activity sessions each day, before and after dinner, and join two guided walks (one walk on four night holidays). All leaders are resident for the duration of the holiday and spend most time with our guests from greeting them on arrival to saying goodbye at the end!
