Leading UK holiday park company Away Resorts has solved the problem of what to do with the kids in that tricky Betwixmas period between Christmas and New Year.
Their Mill Rythe Holiday Village on Hayling Island is offering a three-night Betwixmas Showbreak from 27 December, especially designed to give parents a rest after the Christmas chaos, and allow kids to let off some steam.
Mum and dad can sit back and relax with post-Christmas entertainment in the form of a Tom Jones tribute, Martin Jarvis, and illusionist, Matrix Illusion as well as the Christmas Spectacular Show and 2018 panto Cinderella.
And there’s a packed programme of events for kids including Christmas-themed PLAY activities, PLAY live on stage and a full ‘My Active’ programme, including Hoverboards, Target Archery, Laser Tag, Junior Fencing, while the ‘Play Activities’ include everything from tie-dye to mad science, biscuit making to nature rangers.
There’s also an indoor pool, soft-play area, tennis courts and, to blow away the cobwebs and work off some of that turkey and trifle, Mill Rythe’s stunning coastal location makes it the perfect spot for a bracing winter walk.
For guests who fancy venturing off the park to explore the local area, they could head to Portsmouth to visit Charles Dickens’ actual birthplace which is now a museum. Portsmouth Tourist Guides also host Charles Dickens walks through the city throughout the year. (visitportsmouth.co.uk).
Portsmouth Naval Dockyard is also just a 20-minute drive away for families that want to escape out for a few hours and see the HMS Victory and the Warrior.
Prices lead in at £149 per person, 8-15 Yrs £75, 2-7 Yrs £38, Under 2s go free. This is a three-night, half-board break from 27 December including accommodation and entertainment.
