This summer holiday, QHotels is all about encouraging families
to have their own epic outdoor adventures as it joins forces with
three great British brands.
Teaming up with The Wildlife Trusts, My Adventure Kit and
Funslinger, QHotels - the AA Hotel Group of the Year - has created
the ultimate package of family-friendly activities, designed to get
families away from TV, tablet and smartphone screens and exploring
the great outdoors together - whatever their age.
From den-building missions to wildlife expeditions and monstrous
garden games, the trio of new adventure activities are available at
a number of the group's 'extra family-friendly' hotels.
Director of Marketing at QHotels, Claire Rowland, said: "From
country house estates, to woodland retreats, our designated
family-friendly hotels are set within acres of stunning, private
grounds which we really wanted to maximise for families and
children this summer."
Families staying at QHotels can get back to nature with bespoke
activities from The Wildlife Trusts, exploring the weird and
wonderful wildlife in the hotel grounds and beyond. Guests
can join a hotel's nature trail or simply explore what's around
them with five different nature spotting sheets, from creepy
crawlies to furry favourites.
For those looking for an epic adventure, families can also make
use of a bespoke 'My Adventure Kit' to unleash their inner Bear
Grylls, with everything they need to create their own den building
adventure. Complete with tarpaulin, para cord, a mallet and steel
pegs to ensure the den stays put, each kit also contains
walkie-talkies to communicate with the rest of the family and lots
of additional items for girls and boys to make their den
Or, to keep the kids, and adults, entertained
with some friendly competition, QHotels' new Funslingers are a sure
way to get the entire family active. Winner of the
prestigious Outdoor Playtime Awards 2015 and described by Philip
Schofield on ITV's This Morning as "brilliant", the
high-performance sports toy allows players to launch, release and
catch a projectile 'whissile' rocket, make super-human throws and
spectacular catches, for a monstrous game of throw and catch.
The activities are available at QHotels' extra family-friendly
venues across the UK from August throughout the summer holidays,
"We understand that every family is different, so in partnering
with three unique brands we are able to bring a range of fun summer
activities to QHotels, whether families are seeking adventure, want
to get close to nature or like some sporting competition - there's
something for everyone. After trialling a number of
activities with our QHotels Family Blogger Ambassador, Sarah Christie, and her children,
The Wildlife Trusts, My Adventure Kit and Funslinger proved to be
the perfect fit for our hotels," Claire continued.
On the new partnership, Peter Dorans, Corporate Relations Manager
at The Wildlife Trusts, said: "Spending time in nature is one of
the best things we can do as a family. It's fun, fresh,
varied, great value for money and good for us. We're thrilled
to be working with QHotels to offer families exciting ways to
discover wildlife while on a family break within great
locations. We hope their experiences will inspire them to
discover wildlife on their doorstep when they return home."
Marketing and Customer Relations Manager at My Adventure Kit,
Rachel Binner, said: "My Adventure Kit is all about encouraging
kids and families to explore their environment and create their own
unique adventure and have fun. From acres of parkland to wild
forest settings, QHotels' surroundings offer families the perfect
place to venture with our kits in a safe and secure setting.
"As we are currently re-branding from BattleBox Company to
My Adventure Kit, our partnership with QHotels is the perfect
launch opportunity as part of our exciting brand development."
Funslinger Managing Director, Rod Butterfield,
said: "Our throw and catch it gadget is designed with fun in mind.
So when it came to offering families something unique to do this
summer, it was the perfect game for QHotels' guests. Funslinger is
as easy, or as challenging, as you wish to make it. It's tough
competing with the virtual computer world, but we believe
Funslinger is a healthy, fun welcome back to the great
As well as the new outdoor activities, QHotels' dedicated 'extra
family-friendly' hotels also offer families a range of
child-friendly features throughout the summer, including kids
activity packs, new kids menus, milkshake vouchers on arrival and a
range of fun challenges, from Masterchef contests to colouring
