What’s different about Parent Friendly Stays?
There are countless existing holiday websites featuring thousands of hotels and cottages. We’re not trying to compete with them.
What we offer is something slightly different: a hand-picked, individually reviewed selection of parent friendly cottages, cottage complexes, lodges, hotels, farm stays and glamping sites.
We’ve carefully scrutinised every single holiday listed on our website to make sure each one is guaranteed to offer you a relaxing and enjoyable family holiday.
Many of our holidays offer a unique discount or gift to those who mention PFS when they book – check out our PFS Rewards section for more details.
You won’t find any negative reviews on Parent Friendly Stays because we only feature holidays we’d genuinely recommend to a friend. If we don’t think somewhere is child and parent friendly, we won’t include it.
And while we don’t have the time (or money!) to test out each venue ourselves, we’ve fully researched every holiday as if we were planning to stay there ourselves. Meaning you’ll have a pretty good idea what to expect. You can read in-depth reviews of holidays we have visited ourselves in our tried and tested section.

Do we make any money from PFS?
For many years – eight in fact! – Parent Friendly Stays existed on the internet as an entirely free resource for fellow parents.
In 2020 we decided it was no longer sustainable for us to maintain the site in this way, and introduced a small charge for the holidays we feature to help cover our costs. It was perhaps a sign of the value our visitors and holidays were getting from PFS that so many decided to stay with us after we introduced a fee. We also feature a small number of holidays for free, but charge a small affiliate commission on any bookings made by visitors who found them through us.
None of this affects the prices our visitors pay for holidays they find on our site, or the close scrutiny we give to any holidays before featuring them. We continue to apply extremely high standards to our hand-picked selection of parent friendly holidays to make sure we only feature the very best destinations. You can read more about this on our disclaimer and affiliate disclosure page.
We hope you continue to enjoy PFS and find it a useful resource for many years to come!
