Family glamping in Devon, five luxury lodges, ideal for families of six or even a group getaway for 30.

We have had a lot of last minute enquiries from families looking for a glamping experience in Devon, especially here at these beautiful lodges situated in a secluded valley on the Western border of Exmoor National Park.

This stunning family-friendly glamping site books up early but they do have some availability for September and October, which is a lovely time of the year to holiday with family and friends.

If you are new to glamping and are a little worried about how comfortable you will feel look at these, you won’t be disappointed. I am trying to get a group together to hire the whole place as it looks ideal for all members of the family, all ages and for all occasions!

 

These fabulous child-friendly holiday lodges are bordered by streams and woods and there is even a private lake. There are two skiffs: Oxford and Cambridge, perfect for one adult and one child in each, so why not race around the lake island!? Life jackets are provided too. For fishermen in the family the lake is stocked with over one hundred rainbow trout and if you can catch one you are welcome to cook on the BBQ back at your lodge.

 

The woods offer fabulous family-friendly walks any time of year. There are streams and water falls and nature trails to follow. They are very well sheltered and so can even offer a fab day out for the family even when it is raining!

 

 

 

 

For the sporty members of the family there are a number of outdoor games available to play on the lakeside meadow: petanque, cricket and badminton. There is also a football goal on the football field and a cricket net, basketball and netball hoop plus giant chess.

 

Babies and toddlers are well looked after here, little ones will love the cupboard bed. The cabin bed can convert into a cot or the owners can provide a travel cot if you prefer. The twin room has black out blinds. The cabin bed is also home to a secret den, a small hideaway with an inventive mind can turn into anything! In each lodge there is a high chair, toddler plates etc, if you need more the owners can supply, just let them know.

 

The owner can also provide babysitting if the adults fancy a night out.

 

The newest addition to this family glamping site in Devon is the hot tub! Offering amazing views over the lake and valley and down to the sea, what could be more relaxing than chilling with a glass of bubbly! The hot tub can be used for up to six people, children are welcome over the age of six and the owners can arrange babysitting for babies and toddlers younger than this.

 

For a touch of luxury on Wednesday afternoons visit the Spa Barn and choose from a list of relaxing massages.

 

You can even take time out from cooking as the owners can offer fresh baked bread, croissants, chocolate twists etc, supply a perfect picnic or even prepare a scrumptious supper. The onsite farm larder shop is stocked with lots of goodies, local produce, beautiful homewares, traditional children’s toys and more.

 

The lodges here are beautiful; there are five in total all of which are fully equipped with home-from-home luxuries, including Egyptian cotton bedlinen! They have private shower cabins within the lodge and a wood burning stove if the nights get a little chilly.

 

The lodges are ideal for a family of up to six sleeping in three bedrooms and also perfect for a group get together, special occasions etc. The five lodges can be rented out to accommodate 30 people and there is also a party barn where the whole party can be seated for a special event or just to gather together. The barn is available for hire at a cost of just £15 per head, but is free if you book all five lodges. There is also a catering service with an extensive menu to choose from.

 

Located just minutes from the beaches, towns and villages surely you can’t wish for a better way to spend time with family and friends…

Spring to West Sussex for a short family break

West Sussex is perfect for a short spring break with the family as it is located less than two hours’ drive from London and an easy train ride , just. 1 hr 10 from Victoria  to Shoreham-in-Sea.

Boasting beautiful countryside and coastal scenery, West Sussex is also officially the sunniest country in the United Kingdom according to the Met Office records.

There are plenty of child-friendly beaches here, perfect for a brisk walk in wellies wrapped up with scarf and hat on a fresh spring morning. As the weather warms the layers of clothing can disappear and the kids can rummage in the rock pools looking for interesting sea creatures and build sand castles too!

 

West Wittering beach

West Wittering beach has been a family favourite of ours for years. Boasting Blue Flag status, West Wittering offers high quality water, shallow lagoons when the tide is out, and plenty of sand for castle building, all making it perfect for toddlers and young children as well as older members of the family. There is ample parking, especially during the spring, and a dog-friendly section too. During the winter the beach café is generally open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays ( do check before you head off if this important to you).

littlehampton beach

Littlehampton beaches in West Sussex offer an alternative family vibe to West Wittering. Littlehampton itself is a bustling seaside town with award-winning architecture, stage by the sea, award-winning beaches and a seasonal miniature railway. If you are looking for family-friendly events they seem to kick off in April. The Littlehampton beach is a mixture of sand and shingle and there are plenty of amusements for all ages.

More family days out in West Sussex…

Lambing at Coombes farm

1-coombes-farm-lambing-768x512
Stans Bike shack is fun for a pit stop before a lovely walk or cycle along the downs link.

2017_wc_event_puddle_jumping
The wetlands centre in Arundel is a great day out, with family friendly events throughout the year including Puddle Jumping Championships – spring half term 2017!

Petworth Park has wild deer and the house is national trust and always runs great fun events in school holidays and also nearby Knepp Castle has wildlife safaris which are great fun, they do dawn/dusk/bees and other animals. The owners of the cottages went on a deer rut safari there in Oct and say it was great fun!

West Sussex is beautiful any time of year. Springtime here is just as stunning as other seasons, you can just feel everything waking after its long winter sleep, buds on the trees, bluebells in the woods and spring lambs popping up in the fields and maybe some puddles to splash in too!

What are you waiting for!

 

 

Family holiday review – child-friendly holiday complex in the Charente, Poitou-Charentes, France

In a region dotted with tiny hamlets, lakes and beautiful countryside you will find these wonderful family-friendly holiday cottages. Each cottage is baby and toddler friendly and there is plenty to keep the whole family entertained within the grounds.The Tilbury family headed off for their summer holiday earlier this year and below is what they thought. You can view the cottages they stayed in by visiting the Holiday Tots website here: holiday cottages

Tilbury family: mum, dad, Ben age 7 and Maya age 5.

144308566178815_largeAfter finishing school that week, the family were looking for a chilled holiday somewhere we could let the kids run free and enjoy themselves, come and go as we please and just enjoy some peace and quiet ourselves too!

roast-marshmallows

Time for a chat and a few roasted marshmallows

Stansted to Limoges is a dead easy flight, nice and quick and no hassle. The car hire at Limoges is ridiculously easy too – we literally stepped out of the airport and there was the car hire centre, collecting the car took about 10 minutes which was great when you just want to get going.

The holiday complex is only 40 minutes from the airport and it’s a fairly easy drive too. We arrived at the cottage complex to a warm welcome from Paula and some lovely French bread, cheese and a bottle of rose – fab! Paula showed us around and let us explore in our own time, the kids had other ideas though and were desperate to get into the pool, so whilst they raided the suitcases for swim kit, we sat outside and enjoyed the first bit of glorious sunshine…

jacuzzi-view

Sunset from the Jacuzzi

The accommodation is ideal. We stayed in PM4S and the size was perfect for the four of us. Our little courtyard was great for some al fresco dining and the kids were able to run in and out to the gardens and come as they please. (There are 4 cottages in total, suitable for a variety of party configurations and you could hire the whole place – for up to 26 people… that’s our next step!) The grounds are awesome! So much room to play and lots of different areas to explore. The pool was a huge hit, and the hot tub! But they also enjoyed the barn, little play areas and indoor games room as they all provided some relief from the mid-day sun. What really surprised me was the peacefulness, it is so quiet here. It’s gorgeous, you can really sit back and relax, read a good book and have a great nights sleep!

Local Boulangerie

Local Boulangerie

My husband took on the role as croissant and fresh bread collector each morning (a 5 minute drive to the village) and we enjoyed lunch every day outside the cottage.

We did venture out to a few places, Parc Bellvue –  http://www.parc-bellevue.fr/page/accueil  (fairly expensive for what it is – a bit tired and in need of some modernisation in my opinion) and trips to Roucherchourt (lovely to walk around, enjoy the chateau and some local boule watching) La Guerlie beach is only a mile down the road and has a café, restaurant, water sports, beach, playground etc… but to be honest, our home for the week was so good for all of our needs and wants – we stayed here most of the time!

Toddler play area

Toddler play area

If you are after a chilled family friendly break away with a warm welcome and very helpful hosts (Paula booked a restaurant for us and also gave us tips on places to visit and things to do, information on the beauty treatments – which are amazing, according to our neighbours for the week!) this is the place to come. I kept saying to myself all week, “This place just works.” They have thought of everything. There is plenty of baby/toddler equipment and anything you need, just ask.

f66e4b3115It is so safe and quiet, we could let the kids roam and know that they were fine. There are toys and games dotted around the cottage, the grounds are full of things to do, there is no chance of boredom here. The week we stayed, two out of the four cottages were occupied so we had pretty much everything to ourselves. I think the kids would have preferred some others to play with, however the following week 13 kids were booked in – so it was an unusually quiet week for the owners.

maya-hammockWe will definitely return and come back with friends and family, they will love the place.  The kids miss the hot tub and the lovely cats, my husband misses his early morning coffee on the bench overlooking the whole grounds and I really miss that hammock (when I could get a look in! – can’t quite beat it!

A big thank you to Paula, Richard and their girls. A lovely stay, can’t wait to return!
