Family Friendly Holiday Cottages

Going on holiday with kids can create some of the best memories you’ll ever have. Part of the excitement is witnessing them get really excited about going on holiday.

Holiday cottages offer the ideal accommodation for families with children – you can come and go as you please, make meals when you need to, lounge around or get out and about as the mood takes. Whether you’re heading for the beach, the countryside or a farm, having your kids with you will make everything you get up to that little bit more special.

And they are sure to love the range of attractions available within close proximity to many of our cottages. Let the kids run free in Suffolk by visiting one of the county’s several farm parks, including the popular Jimmy’s Farm. The farm owned by Jimmy Doherty was the feature of a BBC Two documentary, and offers kids the chance to enjoy the company of animals and wander around the farm shop.

Or why not take all the family to North Devon, and enjoy the delights of the North Devon coastline packed with award winning beaches and Victorian towns.

All of our cottages that have been handpicked as family friendly have been chosen because of features that we feel with make the holiday special for you the parents and the kids. For example many of the cottages will be located close by to sports activities, or will have the luxury of an enclosed garden, and with over 3000 across England and Wales, you will be spoilt for choice.
