Family Friendly Cottages For Teenies and Todlers
Child friendly cottages for those seeking a family holiday in a UK holiday cottage where children are welcome and catered for. Good child-friendly cottages offer the kind of self-catering holidays where your children grow up remembering how the sun always seemed to shine on holidays when they were young. They will include the kind of games or activities that will keep you children happy and occupied while giving their parents a bit if a break too. These days it is X-Boxes, table football, trampolines as well as many of the traditional board games that still entertain and allow Mum and Dad to join in. Their other benefit is that they will enable you to cut down on a bit of luggage too, especially if you have very young children in your family to bring on holiday. No need to pack that travel cot, highchair or stair gate – there will be one awaiting your arrival. Many ‘baby-friendly' cottages will go as far as including a little baby pack of essentials in case you forgot to pack them, such as some spare nappies, Sudocream and a baby alarm. This can range from the provision of cots, highchairs, changing mats, plates and cutlery to video games, climbing frames in the garden and beach equipment.
