Activate weekends away are the ideal opportunity to gather the girls and women in your life together for an unforgettable weekend of fun and relaxation – there is plenty to do but also plenty of ways to relax. Both venues have a pool and spa, unlimited tea, coffee, cold drinks and refreshment, and wonderful food – all inclusive. Kick back in the bar or join us for some feel-good entertainment in the evenings. It’s a great opportunity to come on your own, with a relative, or with a group. If you have a teenage daughter, she’d love it too – book a twin room and bring her along. You’ll find we’re a bunch of women from all stages in life, who are passionate about reaching out to our communities and having fun at the same time!
