A suitable family holiday rental in Essex

It is important to rent a suitable holiday home, one that provides a family with essential items for everyday living whilst having an enjoyable time. Check the facilities at each potential holiday letting, most people would prefer to have a washing machine and dryer to keep up with the amount of laundry that children generate. A dishwasher also takes much of the hassle out of self-catering. You know what is important to your family, so the best type of holiday accommodation is the one that satisfies most of your requirements.

A garden is often high on a family’s list because it adds that extra bit of outdoor living space where children can play and you can enjoy a lunch outside and leave the birds to deal with crumbs.

Essex is a brilliant destination for family self-catered breaks

One very good reason to take children on holiday to Essex is the coast. Southend on Sea is big and brash with plenty of amusements but the beach is poor apart from a section where an artificial beach has been made. The amusement arcades and funfair would appeal more to older children for whom beach holidays are overrated.

southend on sea

If you do have young children and want good sandy beaches, look for a holiday home in north east Essex, near Clacton on Sea and Frinton.

Apart from Essex seaside breaks, there are numerous other activities such as High Ropes, Colchester Zoo, excellent off-road cycle paths that interconnect parks in Chelmsford. Young children are very well catered for in terms of soft play centres, a park with a maze, huge sand pit and a boating pond in Maldon. Essex is really such an excellent place to take a holiday for both young and old.
