Family self catering cottages for 4
Choose family self catering cottages for 4 from this list of good quality country cottages, pine lodges and houses. Where would you like to take a family holiday, on the coast or in the countryside?
We all have our favourite holiday destinations and for families; seaside breaks tend to be most popular because kids just love sea and sand and will keep themselves amused. As island nations, Britain and Ireland have real treasures in seaside resorts all around the coast. It's worth keeping distance in mind, children dislike travelling for too long and it might be worth looking to see which coastal towns lie within a 3 hour drive.
Safe for children beaches have Blue Flag status. This awarded annually and depends on the water quality and other factors.
A cottage holiday in the country or on a working farm also tends to meet with children's approval, especially if they are allowed to feed and stroke the animals. Some family oriented cottage owners deliberately keep hens, ducks, rabbits and similar small pets for children to handle. Holidays are all about pleasure and relaxation so that finding somewhere that has provision for young children will help make your family break really enjoyable.
All the cottages shown below sleep 4 people, the number of bedrooms may vary. Be wary of booking a pet-friendly cottage if you do not have a pet because children could have an allergic reaction; err on the safe side.
