If you’re going on holiday as part of a larger group of several families then you’ve got two main options.  The first is to find a property big enough for everyone – see our big cottages here for ideas.  But for some, a cottage complex is a more appealing idea for extended gatherings: all the child friendly facilities, bedrooms and space you need, but with a bit of privacy too so you can all retire to your own holiday homes at night.

Here’s the Parent Friendly Stays selection of child and family friendly cottage complexes featuring multiple self catering cottages in one place.
