Quality establishments that provide a warm welcome for children of all ages are not easy to find and many of us choose to settle for well-known hotel chains. However, there are many fun-packed options to choose from when you are planning a winter getaway with the family. Here are three stunning hotels that promise to keep children of all ages happy and content from dawn to dusk.
Just an hour’s drive from London, this large hotel is set on 500 acres of green pastures. Horses play in the fields whilst you enjoy breakfast, and the large pool is likely to keep the young ones equally enchanted. They can also have fun at the Kid’s Club, ride a bike, learn to play croquet or try their hand at tennis. For the adults, an indulgent spa awaits after a busy day at this luxurious 18th century manor house.
Experience a few days of Georgian splendour at this opulent hotel, it offers a pretty chapel, designated children’s bedrooms and a stunning Orangery where guests take their meals. Try the Cowshed Active spa for working off those teatime treats, featuring a pool, sauna and gym, or just take it easy in the serene aromatherapy room.
For a taste of authentic Cornish charm and a modern British holiday vibe, you will struggle to find a better hotel than this. Nestled above a glistening beach, the fresh decor and relaxed atmosphere simply add to its seaside appeal. There is also a distinct air of sophistication with one of Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen restaurants on site and a wealth of fun activities at the Swim Club spa. Staff organise crafting events and games for the children, but youngsters that are more adventurous can sign up for the Extreme Academy for expert surfing lessons.
