Family-friendly self-catering holidays in the UK and Ireland

Find good clean holiday homes such as cottages, pine lodges and apartments, for family-oriented self-catering holidays, which are equipped for young children. You will find that there are plenty of family-friendly, or even baby-friendly holiday homes that specialise in holidays with small children.

Family friendly self catering is geared to children and their needs. 

Travelling with young children and babies is so much easier if cots, high chairs, changing mats, stairgates and other essential baby equipment is provided.  The right kind of bed suited to the age of a child is important. Babies and toddlers under two and a half can sleep in traditional wooden cots. Only small babies are suited to travel cots.  Older children may require child-size single beds or bunk beds.

A family friendly holiday with equipment and the environment planned for small children can make all the difference.  It is most reassuring to know that gardens are enclosed and safe for children. Certain self-catering properties are also able to offer babysitting services if required. Each of the holiday cottages listed on the pages below is suitable for families.

Places to stay with hands-on activities for children

Children enjoy farm holidays where there are lots of things of interest to them because they will have heard about farm animals and tractors from childrens' books. You may also be interested in holiday cottages with shops nearby to make the provision of daily essentials easy during your self-catering holiday. Days out can also be fun on holiday. How about a cottage with a zoo nearby or a soft-play centre?

Seaside holidays are a firm family favourite, perhaps consider a self-catered cottage break in Skegness?
