Exmoor self-catering holidays for families

Find that perfect family holiday cottage to rent in Exmoor, or close by and enjoy walks in the national park, spotting wild ponies with the children and learning about nature together.

Cottages make very good holiday accommodation for families because the ones that aim to attract young families with kids have put a lot of effort into providing play equipment and facilities that children would enjoy. The accommodation itself will be robust enough to withstand the tumble of play of children and easy to clean up the inevitable crumbs and spills.

Family self-catering accommodation

Many families want to live as they would at home, with a few extra treats of course and it’s easy when renting a cottage or house. Treat it as your own, make sure that you have all the children’s favourite snacks and drinks - and everyone will be happy. Book a cottage with the right kind of facilities for your childrens’ age group and they will be as happy as Larry.

Stay close to the Exmoor National Park

Try to book accommodation as near to the places in Exmoor that you plan to visit to cut down on lengthy car journeys. Sometimes compromises have to be made if there is a choice of accommodation in a beautiful spot or another that has a swimming pool but is a little further away. Exmoor is a hugely popular family destination; the northern edge of the national park skirts the coast and its beaches, the rural areas are heaven for cycling, wildlife spotting, walks and picnics.

Prices

Sadly, cost always has a role to play and families have to budget for a holiday. You are likely to be out everyday exploring north Devon and not admiring four walls, so perhaps a more expensive property is not as important as what you see and do during your Exmoor break.
