Finding the right Family Holiday
Finding a good location for an enjoyable and relaxing family holiday can be difficult at times. Many holiday destinations are not particularly family-friendly places, often having few facilities or amenities for young children. The option of going abroad is out the question for many families, given the sheer length of the journey and the cost of travelling there. Plane trips or long car journeys are also extremely taxing for parents of small children, turning what should be an enjoyable holiday into an exhausting and stressful experience.
A good way to avoid this dilemma is to choose a holiday destination in this country. Britain has a wealth of places that are ideal for family holidays. One of the great advantages of living on a small island is that you never have that far to travel to get to where you want to go. Because of this, travelling with young children is much less of a chore and you can arrive at your chosen location quickly and without difficulty.
Even after you`ve found a good location, another problem of holidaying with children is finding the right kind of accommodation. Many hotels are not really suitable for children and parents with young families are not really catered for. One great solution to this issue is to rent a holiday cottage. You can find cottages for rent in most parts of the country at very reasonable rates, often in peaceful, secluded locations that are ideal for families. These cottages can function as a home from home, allowing you to enjoy family life while at the same time having a relaxing and fun-filled holiday.
There is a wealth of places in the UK to choose from if you`re looking for a cottage-holiday destination. All over England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland there are lovely self-catering cottages available at all times of the year. Many are located in the loveliest parts of the country, such as national parks, where you can enjoy not just the cottage itself but also the beautiful surroundings it is set in. You can easily find cottages to rent in places such as the Lake District or the Yorkshire Dales.
For many families, though, nothing beats a trip to the seaside. Britain is surrounded by coastlines of outstanding beauty that also have the sandy beaches and out-of-the-way coves and inlets that are ideal for families with children. Whether it`s Cornwall or the Isle of Arran, you`ll find coastal cottages
where you can enjoy a marvellous holiday.
