Family friendly holidays with animals on site

Animals on siteFrom a young age, many children are drawn to animals and find them a constant source of fascination, humour and wonder. So at Parent Friendly Stays we’re a big fan of holidays which give our children the option to spend time around animals – like helping collect the eggs on a farm in the morning or feeding the resident rabbits or pony. Below is our list of child friendly holidays with animals on site.
