At Baby Friendly Boltholes, we offer a large range of toddler friendly cottages and farms for parents and their little ones. So you can book your dream holiday or half term break safe in the knowledge that you and your family are made to feel welcome from the moment you arrive.
As parents ourselves who have travelled with our children, we understand how tricky it can be going away when your kids have so many needs. Particularly at toddler age, when they can be difficult to please and in the process of developing unique personalities of their own, travelling around isn't always tantrum-free. It's always a rewarding and enriching experience in the end, but toddler vacations never come without their challenges!
We know the importance of finding the right place where kids are free to play, and parents can relax knowing that their little monkeys aren't disturbing other guests. With many of our cottages and farm stays, boredom is non-existent as there's always space to roam and plenty of places to run around, or lots of fun activities and attractions close by. If you're worried about travelling with your toddler because you feel like it's a hassle packing all the necessary equipment, this is something that we can help with too. Not only can we help you book cottages and holiday homes that make families feel right at home with exciting things to do, but we also make sure that they come fully equipped with all the tools, equipment, nursery accessories and toys that you could need for your trip.
For holidays that can engage and stimulate, we have many farm stay cottages that give your little ones direct access to animal petting or feeding. Farm stays often have resident animals such as sheep, goats, chickens or rabbits roaming freely on site, as well as a chance to help the owners collect eggs each morning. Or you can also book a cottage in one of the UK's most coveted destinations, such as the beautiful Cotswold region amongst lakes, nature trails and spectacular 'chocolate box villages'. Or perhaps dreamy Derbyshire for families who enjoy the great outdoors, Scotland for foodies who want easy access to both city and coast, or magical Wales where families always receive the warmest welcome from their hosts. A quaint UK cottage holiday can be the perfect way to spend quality time with your loved ones during the summer holidays or at any time of year, no matter the weather.
There are also a number of cottages abroad, including the breath-taking regions of Normandy or Aquitaine in France, the rolling countryside of Tuscany and Umbria in inspiring Italy, or the pool cottages and lodges located in magnificent Andalusia in Spain. Here at Baby Friendly Boltholes, the world really is your oyster. And we always combine taste with toddlers to offer frustrated or exhausted parents a sanctuary of comfort, convenience and relaxation.
When it comes to luxury, we've left no stone unturned. Because we don't believe in sacrificing style or the finer things in life for parenthood. Being a parent with a toddler doesn't mean you have to settle for second best. So that's why our toddler friendly cottages can come with services such as babysitting or a chef service, as well as other important features such as stairgates. Our selected holiday homes are run by the kind of people who know that it takes far more than just a travel cot or highchair to turn a cottage into 'child friendly'. There's so much more to looking after toddlers than that, and each of our featured cottages have been hand-picked and checked over by our team to ensure that they tick all of the boxes.
Every single cottage listed on our website welcome children under 5, so you can relax knowing that your toddler can enjoy the holiday as much as the rest of the family. Please feel free to use our online search to find your perfect toddler friendly cottage in the UK, Europe or worldwide. We offer extensive search features with so many filters to choose from, so finding a cottage break in your desired area couldn't be simpler.
