In contrast, conquer your fear of heights at Go Ape, where high wires and zip lines are the order of the day. Or, you could split up and try different activities in smaller groups. Then meet back in the evening to compare notes and get the most out of everyone’s holiday.
Once you arrive back at your holiday home, why not take full advantage of the space by taking a stroll around a private garden before planning a dinner party.
