Family Cottages & Holidays in the UK

Family holidays in the UK

You don’t always have to travel abroad for a memorable family holiday. Pack your bags and hop in the car (or board the train) and discover what the UK has to offer. Going on a UK family break means you won’t have to endure the stresses of getting the whole gang ready for airports, flights and transfers. 

Staying in a holiday cottage also has its own unique benefits. Not only do they give you a sense of extra freedom but they also offer a more homely and cosy setting than a standard hotel holiday. With thousands of family-friendly holiday cottages to choose from, you’ll almost be spoiled for choice.

Types of family holidays in the UK

For those with small babies in tow, we can help you find the ideal baby-friendly cottage, complete with all the essentials for a stress-free break. If you’re planning on bringing the furrier family members along, then you’ll be pleased to know that we have plenty of pet-friendly cottages for you to fall in love with. 

Want the best of both worlds? Choose a child-friendly cottage with a spacious, enclosed garden for the kids to play in, while you get to sit back and relax in the sunshine. If you’re looking to treat the family to a little bit of luxury, then take a look at our collection of deluxe holiday cottages with their very own hot tubs, swimming pools and games rooms.

Incredible destinations, right on your doorstep!

Pack your sun cream and head for the sandy beaches of Brighton, Cornwall and Devon. With their dramatic coastlines and vibrant seaside towns, you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d arrived somewhere a little more tropical! 

If exploring ancient woodlands and historic villages are more your holiday style, then a visit to North Wales or the New Forest is sure to keep you all entertained. The Lake District, Peak District and the Isle of Skye offer the ideal base for keen mountain climbers and walkers to enjoy. 

There’s so much to do...

In need of some inspiration on what to do when you arrive? Whether you’re a family who loves to try exhilarating activities or those who would rather enjoy a relaxing stroll and quiet picnic - you’re bound to find plenty of things to do.

From the best activities to most scenic place to visit, you can find a whole host of information on our ultimate guide to UK family holidays. For those planning on getting out and about in nature while you’re away, our guide on the best places to visit in spring might come in handy.
