Childrens gardens2

Family-friendly campsites

One of the great aspects of is that out of the 1400 garden sites that have registered with us since 2011, many make a really great base for a family holiday with children. Lots of our hosts have their own children, love having guests and new friends to play with, and of course all the gear is already there, too. Swings, slides, toy boxes, wendy houses, and paddling pools are often available, saving you from having to cram the car with too much extra gear.

The particularly memorable extras can be the pets and farm animals which are so often present – it’s such a joy to see children have their first encounters with a flock of funny hens, guinea-pigs you haven’t had to nurture, or a live-in pony. Take a look at some of the locations which are especially good for kids – either because of their locations by the sea or other attractions, or because of who is waiting there to welcome them!
