For those who love sports breaks and an active holiday, we highly recommend a visit to The Manor & Ashbury Resorts in Devon. They have a great selection of sports to try, including racket sports, team sports and leisure activities.

Sports Holidays

It’s great for everyone to get active as part of a healthy lifestyle – plus it makes you feel great. It can often be scary or even a little intimating to start up a new sport, which is why the Manor & Ashbury ensure all their sessions are friendly and welcoming.

There is a huge choice of sports available including favourites like football, rounders, volleyball and hockey. They have also recently added new sports like dodgeball and ultimate frisbee. If the weather is favourable some games will be enjoyed outside on the hotel sports pitches.

Sessions are offered for a variety of ages and abilities during the school holidays. Some sports, like continuous cricket, even allow the whole family to take part together. All equipment is provided, and a fully trained instructor will explain the rules.

Outside of these session times, and during term time breaks, the equipment and sports hall can be hired for your own games. Simply ask at our activity desk once you arrive. We are happy to help create the perfect sports break for your group.

Football Breaks

As mentioned above football is available as part of the hotel’s peak time sports programme, but did you know they also have an 18-hoel foot golf course? Football golf, or foot golf, can be enjoyed free of charge at the Ashbury Resort by all hotel guests.

The Ashbury are pleased to host competitions and tournaments in partnership with The Footgolf Association of England. The Footgolf English Open will be happening in August 2024 – click here for more information.

An impressive full size 3G pitch is also available at the Ashbury Resort. It is fully accredited by the Football Association (FA) and World Rugby (WRU). Which means it is suitable for all levels of the sports including top level matches.

The 3G pitch, alongside their multi-sports pitch, make a great base for training events, football breaks and tournaments. If you are part of a club or group, why not get in touch to hire the venue for your event. Or why not book a short residential sports break – whatever your needs, the Manor & Ashbury can provide.

Pickleball & Tennis Holidays
