Family friendly holiday cottages

Making family travel easy

Travelling with children is fun, rewarding and challenging; sometimes in equal measure. It’s our mission at Crabtree & Crabtree to minimise the challenging bit so we’ve selected the houses that are best suited to children of all ages (think enclosed gardens, convivial kitchens, big bathrooms and games rooms bristling with toys) and added toys, babysitters and insider tips on local mini-explorer activities. All you have to do is focus on the fun and rewarding bits, which, with everything from broomstick flight training, surf school and pottery workshops on your doorstep, is the easy part!
