When booking a family holiday you want to ensure that every member of your travel party is going to have a good time. However, many parents find it difficult to find destinations and accommodation in the UK that caters for every member of the family.
With that in mind we’ve put together this guide to help you find the best child friendly locations in the UK.
A stone’s throw away from the coast of Cornwall, the Isles of Scilly are incredibly popular with families.
Kids love to do a bit of camping, and Bryher is a brilliant place to go camping in the Isles of Scilly. Open between April and September, the Bryher campsite offers fantastic views and lots of things for your little ones to do. If you’re looking for an interesting location that is extremely affordable and fun for all of the family then Bryher is a great location for you.
Bryher is brilliant for a low cost holiday, but if you have money to invest in your accommodation then you should try the Flying Boat Club in Tresco. A self catering cottage that sleeps up to six people can cost around £200 per night, but families love this fantastic accommodation and beautiful location. Older children and teens can enjoy solo bike rides while mum and dad can take pushchair walks along the coast.
Sticking with luxury accommodation, if you’re thinking of a family trip to Legoland then you may want to consider the Four Seasons Hotel in Hampshire for your accommodation.
This stunningly elegant Georgian manor house has 133 bedrooms on offer. There are plenty of on-site facilities available, including an indoor pool, babysitting and lots of outdoor and sports activities are available.
As you check in your little ones will be presented with a giant toy box, from which they can take a present for their stay. The hotel is very good at creating a warm and welcoming environment for both parents and children.
If you are looking for affordable accommodation that is near to the beach then you should certainly consider a trip to Great Yarmouth or nearby Caister.
There are plenty of chalets, caravans and camp sites that offer great value for money accommodation that is family focused, and there are lots of local attractions that will appeal to big kids and little kids!
The National Sea Life Centre in Great Yarmouth, for example, always goes down a storm with little ones. These venues are always well presented, highly educational and incredibly good fun. From sharks to penguins there are plenty of animals to see at the Sea Life Centre and lots of activities to get involved with.
With easy access to the Norfolk Broads and the Britannia Pier there are plenty of good reasons to stay in Great Yarmouth or Caister.
Wales offers an array of family friendly destinations and locations, but Cardigan Bay is quickly becoming a family favorite.
For a reasonable fee, you and the family can take a boat trip from Cardigan Bay and during your 90 minute boat trip you stand a very high chance of spotting some local dolphins.
Once unheard of, it now seems that Bottlenose Dolphins regularly appear in waters not too far from this great location, and there are no words to describe the levels of excitement a child expresses when they spot their first ever dolphin in local waters.
If you have children aged between 8 and 18 and you want to have an adventure together then perhaps you might want to consider the challenge of cycling end to end of Hadrian’s Wall.
Hadrian’s Wall offers some fantastic views and the challenge of cycling from end to end can be both eye opening and incredibly satisfying.
Your holiday at Hadrian’s Wall doesn’t have to be completely based around cycling and camping. There are plenty of English Heritage sites that you can visit along the way. Many of these sites are free to visit, providing the opportunity for families to have a very challenging and cost effective holiday.
