For many, starting a family can mean taking a break from holidays due to the expense, inconvenience and difficulty and transporting young children. However, these reasons don’t need to stop you taking you R&R, below we’ve highlighted some great places to go for a family break which won’t be more trouble than it’s worth.
B&B break in the UK
B&Bs in the UK are generally very family friendly accommodation options. Run by warm couples and located in some very serene areas, B&Bs often end up being a special home away from home. For a family, they give you a sense of privacy while allowing you to interact with gracious host couples. Thousands of families each year travel to serene locations across the UK, and are put up in beautiful houses that have great family ambience. From a nice inner city B&B in York to a boutique bed and breakfast in Whitby, there is a huge range on offer out there. You can get houses that have a game room, study area, special child facilities, as well as outdoor activities to keep the young ones engaged. If you happen to stay on a B&B in a farm, they may even allow your children to have fun with some farm activities.
It is not uncommon find your host going out of their way to get child friendly movies, games, and entertainment facilities in order to make your stay memorable. Best of all, you get this at beautifully low prices!
Golf and Spa holiday
For couples, a golf and spa holiday can represent the best compromise. If you both are avid golf fans, then this can be a bonding experience. Combining the elegance of premier golf courses with exclusive spa treatments is a holiday pairing made in heaven. Some of the best locations for this kind of experience would be in Sri Lanka, Morocco, and even Turkey. Asian countries in particular offer great spa experiences, using masseuse who have been trained by accomplished masters in the trade. After a relaxing massage, you can head out to a world-class course. If lucky, you will find the courses to be challenging, modern, and yet the green fees surprisingly affordable.
Most likely your young ones will not fancy watching you take on a beautiful golf course, so they can head out and see the local sights in the meantime. You can also find out if the local hotel runs a children’s club during peak periods. Here, they will meet others their age, and socialize while supervised by responsible hotel staff. It is a win-win for all.
There is no better way to beat the heat of summer, and even the chill of winter, than to head out for a thrilling ski holiday. For master skiers, the adrenaline rush of 1.5 km drops is irreplaceable. Having kids shouldn’t block you from experiencing the thrill of premium ski tracks.
That is why family ski resorts are such a blessing. They cater to the needs of both parents and children alike. Some go to the extent of not allowing cars within the resort, creating a safe and quaint environment for your little ones. What’s more, they have qualified ski instructors for your children, who will teach them the joy of snow and ice in safety. For those with babies and toddlers, a child friendly resort will typically provide you with child equipment free.
For such family friendly resorts, look in France, Austria, Switzerland, and even Italy.
