Not all family friendly holidays happen during the summer, of course. And for those slightly less warm and sunny breaks at Christmas, October half term or maybe February, what could be more enticing to return to after a wet day out with the kids than a cosy cottage with it’s very own log burner or open fire? Somewhere to warm up, dry off the dog and maybe even the wellies..

Here’s the Parent Friendly Stays selection of child and family friendly holidays with a log burner or open fire.
