Great chance for a different kind of holiday (not widely advertised & a new venture for NT) for 2 adults & up to 3 children for 3 nights in next school holiday 28-31 May - premium NT accomodation & all meals are included plus access to a indoor pool & jacuzzi. Only 3 hours "work" doing things like eco-pile building or beach-cleaning per day on the lovely Stackpole Estate & Barafundle Bay.It's not the cheapest holiday but a great deal as the accommodation is fab see http://www.stackpolecentre.org.uk & it's a a true escape from the usual child-friendly options that parents can enjoy too. Also your money goes to a good cause & you don't even have to be members . For full details see https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/main/w-vh/w-holidays/w-holidays-working_holidays.htm or call 0844 800 3099 .Hurry there are only 2 places left!

Gladly - beautiful beach - can't park very close to it, but a fantastic cliff top walk to get to it as well.

Have posted another Family Working Holiday now at Craflwyn Hall in Snowdonia 24-27 August http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/394506/national-trust-family-holidays-in-b/
Please vote hot as NT are struggling to find their target audience with these & a great alternative holiday for families & all profits help the NT so can't be bad!

Unable to get to the deal through the link

Do all people on the holiday have to work. e.g. if I took the Mrs and Child would the Mrs have to work as well?
#10
what an excellent idea :thumbsup:
#11
This is a great idea. Alternatively, if anyone wants to come round to my gaf, work for 3 hrs a day cleaning and pay me £425 I'd be very happy to supply beans on toast!
#12
You mean you actually pay them to do their work :oops:

Seems more like a con than an offer :roll:

Sorry about link - I'm new to posting try

then search on Wales & either May or August or call NT 0844 8003099 & Denise is the person organising the Family Working Holidays & should be able to answer any questions or find out for you.
There is only 3 hours "work" each day & it should be fun & not too arduous as the kids are doing it too. Each holiday is led by a Group Leader (also a volunteer) under the guidance of NT staff so tasks may vary according to location so again it's best to speak to NT on the above number.

It's horses for courses! Some of us enjoy a little "work" in beautiful locations, with like minded people & how else would you get to stay in premium accomodation with meals & some activities in the school holidays at such a good all in price? Have you seen the photos?!
#15
how else would you get to stay in premium accomodation with meals & some activities

by paying £425.00 for 3 days accommodation maybe :roll:

Not voted as I work all year for a holiday that I can pay for and relax, so this sounds more like a charitable donation of your time and money, so obviously will suit others with more free time.

It's only 3 hours family friendly "work" a day!!!! That leaves loads of time to enjoy the location, facilities & other activities they may offer. I don't know of anywhere remotely nice that 2 adults & 3 children could stay for 3 nights full board for £425 in the school holidays let alone somewhere like these locations with a high standard of accommodation & facilities like pool & jacuzzi at Stackpole. Perhaps you can give some suggestions?

As I already said, i never voted, as taking me and my family on holiday for us to work 3 hours a day to pay for extras is not my idea of a relaxing time, no matter how nice the view out the window is in Stackpole. No need to take offense..

I'm not taking offense & you are entitled to have your say & vote or not either way. Hopefully it will suit some families & they will vote the deal hot so there is more chance of others finding out that this is available.

If anyone is considering the Stackpole, Pembrokeshire holiday TODAY is the day to call NT on 0844 800 3099 & ask for Denise who deals with the family Working Holidays as this holiday will be cancelled today otherwise as not reached the minimum booking number & other families will have their holday cancelled so lots of very unhappy children.
#21
Pembrokeshire holiday was cancelled today but please don't expire posting as they have now had sudden late interest today as a result of HUKD so may be back on with one place for one family left - will update listing Tuesday pm!
#22
Anyone interested in the Stackpole, Pembrokeshire holiday please call NT on 0844 800 3099 & speak to Denise today as still a chance it may go ahead but need enough bookings!
#23
Still available if just one more family book tomorrow - Wednesday !
#24
NT are holding the Stackpole, Pembrokeshire holiday open now with just one space for one more family left & It has been confimed that it will definitely go ahead. Also Snowdonia holiday has just one space left for one family too.
#25
Some of the activities at Stackpole have now been confirmed as otter survey , bat walk, orienteering & environmental games as well as visits to the beaches. Work is beach cleaning at Barafundle Bay (see pictures), gardening & some path clearing in the woods followed by marshmallows toasted on the bonfire of what has been cleared. Plenty to keep the kids busy! Plus a swim in the pool & relax in the jacuzzi ... how can you resist?!
Contact Denise at NT 0844 800 3099 to book or if you have any queries.
#26
this sounds like self promoting no wondering your taking offence to the over members comments, you bumped this msg 6 times !

425£ for 3 days, what a Crazy hoilday i agree with above members,
you can get a cottage for 7days around Pem's for 550£ and thats in Aug for a family,
#27
Thank you HUKD & all those who voted this hot - holiday went ahead as final place booked by a family who saw it here! Snowdonia holiday may still be available but on another posting so please expire this one now
