27 November 2014

courtfarmxmas2So November’s nearly over already (where does time go nowadays?!) and the annual routine of festive TV adverts and Christmas music in the shops started many weeks ago. For those lucky families who long since booked a child-pleasing holiday over Christmas or New Year in a cosy self-catering cottage or well-equipped family hotel, there are only a few weeks left to wait.

But what about those of us who weren’t quite so prepared and have suddenly now realised how much we wish we were spending the festive period with our families somewhere new and exciting? Well you needn’t worry! We’ve rounded up all the child friendly holidays from Parent Friendly Stays who’ve still got space this December and listed them below.

Details were accurate at the time of writing, but if you do fancy going ahead and booking something we’d recommend acting fast to avoid disappointment – and please don’t forget to quote Parent Friendly Stays when you book.
