OUR FAVOURITE UK FAMILY HOLIDAYS


We have been blessed with having some really great family holidays together over the last few years, it's something I take seriously, both in discovering fab places to go, spending months planning and looking forward to getting away (which gets me through the darkest winter months). Here are just a few of our favourites;

1. DRIFTWOOD BEACH HUT


I dream of living in a beach hut by the sea and this beach chalet at Gwithian Towans is pretty much perfect,  I'd move in tomorrow if I could and owner Phil would let me! The boys would surf after school, I'd serve cappuccinos in the surf cafe nearby and wear flip flops all year round!

Ok, back to reality, if you share my dream you can hire this beach hut through Forever Cornwall, which even has surfboards in the rafters to borrow.

2. CORNISH TIPI HOLIDAYS


The ultimate escape-from-it-all holiday, you cook and heat your water on an open fire, there are no cars allowed on site and no wifi! The boys went completely feral and absolutely loved fishing and cooking their catch.

3. RUSTY THE TIN TENT


This is perhaps the most imaginative and quirky holiday property we've ever stayed in, the boys had acres to roam, we had real fires and Rusty was so cosy you could stay all year round - utter bliss in the most magical of settings in Cornwall.

4. FEATHER DOWN FARM


I love Feather Down Farms, they've got it spot on when it come to family holidays and whilst they are quite pricey they really are the stuff of childhood memories and we remember our holiday so fondly and have judged all our 'glamping' holidays against it.

5. WENDY THE ABERPORTH EXPRESS


When the boys were little we stayed in a railway carriage called Wendy right by the sea in west Wales, it was beautifully converted and contained lots of railway paraphernalia. The train loving boys thought it was brilliant!

6. CAMPING AT FARRS MEADOW


We discovered this gorgeous campsite last year, with quirky compost loo's and showers in horseboxes it was enchanting and we'll certainly return.

7. A ROAD TRIP IN A VW CAMPER


Despite being quite a squeeze this road trip in a camper to the Norfolk coast (taking in the world snail racing championships on the way) was perhaps my favourite holiday. I would love to hire one again and go on another road trip with the boys, now they're older they would love it - although I'm not sure we'll fit all five of us in!

So after so many great places over the years, where next?

  1. These all look like loads of fun. What quirky places you've stayed in. A camper van road trip is definitely on my list, but I reckon I need to put some of these others on there too. As for what next... I'm not sure the bunkhouse in Aviemore I'm heading to next week quite matches up to this list, but how about a Bothy adventure?

  2. I love seeing all the places you've been to. You've inspired many of our recent holidays. I'm desperate to go on a road trip in a camper van, in fact I'd love to own one, move to Cornwall and spend the rest of my life surfing!!

  3. I adore my good old British holidays! We have a dog so we have chosen to holiday in the UK rather than kennel her, and we always love heading to the Jurassic Coast as we find the towns much more dog friendly anyway! These are some gorgeous recommendations, I absolutely love Cornwall, the sea just seems a different colour down there! Katie x
