Please note: This is a family break, and bookings should be made as a family group. We're sorry, but we won't be accepting bookings from adults without children.

Bring your family to a creative and fun Summer folk break at Halsway!

There’s a programme of activities each morning and evening, focused around children but suitable for the whole family – mum, dad, aunties and uncles, granny and grandad, even close family friends! – to join in with. You’ll be able to spend quality time together exploring creative and accessible folk activities (no experience necessary) and we’ll make the most of Halsway’s beautiful setting and outdoor spaces to inspire us!

We’re still in the planning stages, but typical activities could include:

  • Singing for everyone – perhaps creating some of our own Halsway songs…
  • Fun Folk Dancing for everyone – using up some excess energy or refining your best moves!
  • Music-making for all, where everybody can join in whatever their age, instrument or experience, and make a great sound together
  • “Have a go” workshops where we create new dances or learn something new or perhaps try new musical instruments
  • Games, crafts and outdoor play exploring the environment around us

All activities are optional, so if you want to take some time out to relax or do your own thing that’s fine, but we do expect children to be supervised by a member of their family at all times.

Afternoons are free-time, for trips around this lovely area; there’s plenty to see and do including the West Somerset Railway, the seaside and Exmoor. One day a week is left free for you to plan your own day trips, or to relax at the Manor if you prefer.

Stay in our beautiful Manor house – large family rooms are available, and also comfortable double / twin rooms for accompanying grandparents for example – or you can set-up camp in our lovely grounds. All meals are provided, so you can relax and enjoy yourselves in a convivial, family-orientated atmosphere!

Who’s it For?

The holiday is for families and children of all ages who want to experience a fun and creative folk break together. We are only accepting bookings from family groups including children. Your ‘family’ group can include close friends and relations of all ages, but please note that the organised programme is aimed squarely at providing inclusive family activities, there won’t be any activities aimed solely at adults.

The Team

We’ll be working with experienced and multi-talented community artists to deliver this week; team details will be added shortly.
