From 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 feeding the chickens, helping collect the eggs each morning, stroking the rabbits and guinea pigs or even enjoying a pony or horse ride.

Here’s our selection of child and family friendly holidays with animal fun guaranteed to entertain and enthrall children of all ages.
