Travel: Luxury Family Hotels

We love quick family breaks – you know the effortless kind where you don’t have to fret about long haul flights or passports and you have just enough time to give you a change of scene from the day to day grind. Back then, before children, it would often be a short jaunt to the country in some plush hotel.  Sadly, those days seem like a distant memory.  Not anymore…the country manor is back – with kids…

We’re seriously swooning over Luxury Family Hotels who offer a highly curated selection of hotels across the UK, ranging from historical manor houses to castles.  They have all the trimmings for perfect weekend breaks – spas, excellent food, gardens to run wild in and one extra important element – certified Ofsted approved complimentary crèches.  Yes, you read that right – you get two hours of complimentary childcare each day.

The hardest decision you’ll have to make is – which one?  With locations dotted around the country, each property offers an unforgettable family weekender. From Ickworth’s baby listening service – where the reception will notify parents of any noises coming from a napping baby to movie nights and a games room for older children (parents can play too).  Or if what you’re really after is a place to totally decompress then New Park Manor is just what you’re looking for. Dubbed “a luxury family spa hotel in the New Forest”, it ticks all the boxes of a girly getaway spa weekend – but with the family. Nestled amongst tall trees, the gorgeous hotel marries old and new seamlessly featuring both indoor and outdoor swimming pools, hot tubs and treatment rooms – plus a healthy juice bar to leave you feeling invigorated.

If you’re so inclined to venture off the property, each hotel is surrounded with a wealth of local attractions.  The family that sails together will love sailing in the New Forest’s Solent or if you head off to the Fowey Hall in Cornwall – the Eden Project is only a 20 minute drive from the hotel.  Is your clan crazy for everything medieval?  Then Woolley Grange is just a short stroll from Bradford Upon Avon – a place that oozes history.

Families with pre-school children can benefit even more from great mid-week and term time discounts.  Don’t deny yourself life’s little pleasure anymore…and with prices starting at £99 this is one affordable luxury…
