As Lonely Planet has given our glorious coastline their official stamp of approval, you’d better believe it’s the number one place for those summer holiday family breaks, complete with a sweep of Blue Flag-awarded beaches and oh-so-many family friendly attractions.

Our countryside and coastal accommodation offer the best base for a family break, whether you’re enjoying time just you and the kids, celebrating reunions with the grandparents, or taking the plunge with a multi-family getaway (ear plugs not included).

While many of our top family friendly attractions are packed with ideas and things to keep kids big and small busy, we know that tricky teens can have very different demands than tiny tots, so we’ve gone one step further and put together tailor-made guides for families young and old. Because planning a break they’ll ALL love deserves to be a joy after so much time spent at home!
