Great Holidays For Children

Self catering holidays in the UK are a popular choice with families as you have plenty of space for adults to relax, children to play and lots of flexibility to take the holiday at your own pace. Many owners provide facilities for children such as cots, high chairs and games but the cottages listed in this category all offer that little something extra. Some have nature trails to explore with the children; trampoline's for letting off steam; soft play areas for tiny tots or animals to pet and feed. For those who fancy a taste of country life, you may also want to take a look at our Farm Holidays – another popular choice with families.

Tips: The journey with children can be tiring and they are bound to be full of excitement upon arrival, so why not pack a new novel game to keep them occupied whilst you unpack. Some owners are able to provide home cooked meals – a perfect welcome for the first night or why not take your own ready cooked supper from home for the first night. Find out what onsite facilities are available and make sure you take all the toys and equipment to enable your children to make the most of them for example buoyancy aids for the pool, fishing equipment or a bucket and spade for sand pits.
