Family-friendly holiday cottages - best UK cottages for families I Cool Places

Family-friendly cottages UK

Renting a country cottage or any kind of self-catering property has always been the best choice for a family holidaying in the UK. And even in these days of more kid-friendly hotels and B&Bs, it still remains the most flexible option. There are literally thousands of self-catering properties around the country that are ideal for a family holiday, whether it's because they have a great location – by the sea, deep in the woods or close to popular attractions – or because they are well set up for children, with big gardens, games rooms, films and books or just a reliable wifi connection. In any case, living somewhere different is always fun; children love to colonise places and soon make them feel like home. We have loads of family adventures to share, from holiday cottages and beach huts to campsites and farms – which one will be perfect for your family?
