booked a stay at Hatton
Adventure World as part of our #XVAdventure with Subaru. The family camping weekends come highly
recommended by us now we have tried it out.
We were completely new to camping; I have never been in my whole life so
it was lovely having a relatively gentle introduction.
We were not just alone in a muddy field; there were lots
of lovely staff members and their children to assist who were camping
themselves. They actually went beyond
the call of duty and took pity on us when we arrived looking clueless in the
rain desperately trying to get our tent up!
Adventure World had also laid on a full entertainment programme to keep all the
children happily occupied, depending on the weekend you book the schedule
changes but each one offers unique and wonderful experiences.
is still another Family Camping Weekend this Friday and the boys wished we were
heading there again, if we had not already made plans to go to LolliBop I think
we would be sorely tempted! As it is I
think we will definitely go next year, it’s excellent value for £35 per person
(£30 if you book early enough!) as you also get two whole days entrance into
Hatton Adventure World alongside your pitch and those few special extra’s
depending on the planned agenda.
is obviously a lot of care and attention put into developing these camping
weekends. Setting up the tent can be
tricky at best; children get bored and restless and start running amuck with
the peg hammer! But at Hatton Adventure
World they had made up a special area with plenty of toys to keep the children
out of mischief leaving the parents to concentrate on the important business of

entertainment programme ensured I had two exceptionally happy boys. We must have been on a run of luck as at the
Bingo session we won five games! The
prizes were delightful and very generous.
the Saturday evening they amended the schedule as the Nature Ranger failed to
turn up for the unseen world of bats and moths session. The staff dealt with this remarkably well
and instead my boys had an opportunity to meet all the reptiles and handle
them. Getting close to the snakes and
lizards will be a fantastic memory they hold onto for a lifetime.
Farm Shop was one of our highlights for warm choc au pans for breakfast. The owner, Raymond is such a warm welcoming
man and one of our tent-building saviours.
Becky (another camping host) deserves a special mention too as she was
so pleasant with all the children, happy to answer a million questions about
animals and have the good grace to keep looking interested!
Hatton Adventure World itself is vast with so much to do, its a good thing you get two full days!
your wondering whether to give camping a go, heading to somewhere like Hatton
Adventure World where you know your children will be entertained and amused
gives you the confidence to relax, unwind and enjoy your holiday whatever the
weather decides to do.
