Taking a child friendly holiday

Taking a vacation when you have children seems almost impossible to fathom. Part of you is reluctant to leave the kids behind with babysitters or relatives but another part of you is itching for a proper holiday. A great solution is to go on a child friendly holiday where you stay in an area which has activities for both you and your children to enjoy, and has accommodation options available to suit your family needs.

When children go on holiday, they look for fun and are constantly looking for new things to do. Keeping this in mind, a holiday must be planned to keep children busy, active and occupied, whilst parents can have their fun as well. Ideal child friendly holidays cover a vast number of activities and entertainment. There should be something that both children and parents can enjoy simultaneously, so the entire family has a good time and neither party will get bored.

For entertainment purposes, selecting a spot that is close to a town is a good idea, as you can always find something to do there. Many families pick towns with a beach close as this is the best possible way to spend an afternoon with the kids. Another must is having a swimming pool nearby. Selecting a town with a zoo, adventure parks, gardens, aquariums and farms nearby is ideal as there is plenty to see and do in the area no matter how old you are.

One of the most important aspects of a child friendly holiday is your accommodation needs. If you have a baby, you should select a hotel, cottage or bed and breakfast option that offers a cot and a highchair so that you do not have to bring these along with you on your trip. Having a microwave, washing machine, bathroom, heating and parking on site or close by is also advantageous when you have kids around as it is easier to look after their needs with all these facilities at your fingertips. Some properties offer additional baby friendly facilities, which you can check details of before booking. It is important to make sure that you book a non smoking room as well.

Children love to watch television, so make sure that your room has one with cartoon channels available for your kids to watch. If youre travelling with infants and are looking for a holiday with an extra helping hand, some places feature a crche service, where your little ones will be in the care of professional and fully trained staff.
