Description automatically generatedFor the whole month of August, kids can accompany adults and eat at the gorgeous Little Channels Bistro for just £1! * Katie says: “Our thinking is to take the pressure off at home. Welcoming kids for £1 allows Mum and Dad to save on money, sanity and washing up – as well as offering the whole family a chance to enjoy a day out together. We find that our regulars keep coming back because they have a brilliant time, they don’t need to cook, clean or rely on TV. I like to think it’s a chance to celebrate old-fashioned family fun with plenty for the kids to do!”
Attractions also include the Little Channels Golf Centre – a friendly, family-oriented 9 hole pay and play course. For the more committed, The School of Golf holiday camps are proving a big hit! The camps are ideal for boys and girls who wish to experience playing golf during the school holidays and includes golf coaching, fun competitions, skills challenges and prizes! Suitable for all ages and abilities, the programme is headed up by Jack Cole and Matthew Mahoney – both fully qualified PGA Professionals.
The top-notch facilities include 22 bay floodlit driving range, putting green, pitching and chipping green and three practice bunkers, offering a unique way to learn and improve golf skills under
professional supervision and make new friends whilst having a bucket load of fun!
Set within a restored barn conversion with a beautiful quaint country courtyard for alfresco dining, Little Channels Bistro is the perfect setting. With plenty of high chairs, a children’s menu, and colouring pencils to keep your children entertained, the Bistro provides British cuisine and delectable afternoon teas.
