How to find the right family holidays once your children are at school
Your kids have reached primary school … a major achievement but one not without drawbacks.
Yes, welcome to the world of school summer holidays and the seemingly impossible situation of finding a holiday with children that’s going to appeal to everyone in the family and come within budget. So where do you start? Read our top tips here …
UK or abroad?
Consider the cost benefits and convenience of staying in the UK and perhaps upgrading your accommodation instead of paying for flights.
Solitary or social?
If your kids like mixing with other kids, choose somewhere where you know they’ll make friends – which will inevitably mean more relaxation time for you.
Keeping children busy and happy
Party party … evening activities whether in the form of fancy dress parties or visits from the local zoo will give you some down time before and after dinner and give your children some independence.
Less is more
Remember when summer holidays meant building sandcastles and eating sandy egg sandwiches on the beach? Actually, a surprising number of children are still more than happy with a family holiday like this. Don’t always aim for ‘all singing all dancing’.
Explore your surroundings
