Sheldon

Clergy Family Holiday (week 1)

Led by the Sheldon team

Are you the sort of family that likes to slow down on holiday? Would you like a small ready-made friendship circle for the children and other adults who aren't the least bit intrigued that you're a vicar? How about having home-cooked food served and the washing up done cheerfully, with prices nearer to self-catering than hotel? And would it be nice to be looked after by a friendly volunteer team who want you to have a good holiday just because they know your ministry matters and that sometimes it's costly for you and your family? A holiday for EVERY member of the family? Then maybe a Sheldon Clergy Family Holiday is for you, so read on ...

Sheldon itself is a great place for children, with a real sense of freedom and safety. The local area is full of family-friendly tourist attractions plus Exeter, Dartmoor and good beaches, all within 10 miles. Simple evening activities include scavenger hunt, barbecue, quiz, crafts, etc. We look after all your food needs and are always happy to cater for special diets and fussy eaters. Great takeaway picnics for lunch.
Bedrooms are modestly sized and there is plenty of communal space and adult-only quiet space. Indoor toilets and showers are provided if you bring your own tent or caravan.
