Family friendly holidays with a pub or restaurant nearby

Pub or restaurant within walkingAfter a fun-packed but busy day out with the kids, sometimes there’s nothing we fancy more at Parent Friendly Stays than a nice cold pint or a tasty meal out. Obviously it’s dependent on having someone you can trust to look after the children (see our selection of properties with a babysitting service), but it also really helps if there’s a nice pub or restaurant on your doorstep – it means you’re still near home if you’re needed, and you don’t need to worry about getting an expensive taxi back at the end of the evening! Here’s our selection of parent friendly cottages and hotels with a pub or restaurant within walking distance.
