Discover ‘School Holiday Heaven’ This Half Term at The Celtic Manor Resort…

NEWPORT, Wales, January 30/PRNewswire/

As the dark days of winter finally draw to a close, February Half Term is the perfect time to getaway for a break with the whole family and there’s no better place to blow away the cobwebs than at The Celtic Manor Resort.

This world-class destination set in the beautiful Usk Valley in South Wales, has something for everyone, no matter what age they are. For hotel residents, the Resort’s Hideaway Club is offering an exciting schedule of complimentary activities for children throughout the holiday and with specially discounted rates available on accommodation, there’s no better time to treat the whole family to a touch of luxury.

With four unique restaurants, The Celtic Manor Resort offers an abundance of choice when it comes to dining. A new selection of Children’s Menus have been created to give parents more choice, offering a wide selection of healthy meal options as well as some of the more traditional favourites.

The Hideaway Club will appeal to children of all ages. The Resort’s child-care team, with a little help from Dylan the Dragon, has created a mix of fun, educational and exciting activities to keep children busy and entertained throughout the week.

Between February 13th and 24th, Celtic Manor’s youngest guests can create arts and crafts masterpieces in the ‘Sticky Fingers’ group, or let off steam playing ‘Dragon Sports’. Older children can get wet at ‘Splashers’ supervised swim or chill out with friends at Friday night’s ‘Movie Madness’ club. Budding junior golfers can improve their skills with expert tuition at the Resort’s world-class Golf Academy, just GBP30 for a one-hour session or GBP15 for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, Mum and Dad can relax and enjoy the surroundings of this five star resort. Perhaps play a round of golf on the Roman Road championship course or escape to the sanctuary of the award-winning Forum Health Club and Spa.

As Half Term also coincides with Valentine’s Day this year, why not try the romantic ‘Treat for Two’ spa package, specially created for couples. This unique experience includes an authentic Rasul Mud Ritual for two, a sensuous Royal Chocolate Cocoon Facial enjoyed together in the privacy of one of the candlelit double therapy rooms, complimentary Champagne sorbets and petits fours and use of The Forum Spa’s luxurious facilities.

For the family that likes to play together, the Resort’s fantastic location set in 1400 acres of panoramic parkland, lends itself to all manner of outdoor activities. Mountain bikes are available to hire for kids and adults and there are numerous trails for woodland walks. Horse riding, fishing, clay pigeon shooting and more can all be organised by prior arrangement, subject to availability.
