10 Tips for finding Child friendly Holiday Cottages this summer

Almost everyone has experienced taking a young child on holiday- this might be your own child, a child of a friend’s or memories of a holiday you once went on as a child.

We all know the ups and downs of these types of holidays but are sure you can all appreciate that a little bit of planning goes a long way. To help you get that upper hand on your next holiday booking we have assembled our top 10 tips to help you to find a child friendly holiday home for you.  All our child friendly cottages and houses will provide a cot and high chair so you don’t have to include these in the massive packing challenge.

  1. If you’re worried about the great garden landscapes, pool or otherwise then please don’t hesitate to give some of our friendly team a call. We have people who have visited the site themselves and can answer any queries that you might have.
  2. If you are looking for a pool then you might consider going for somewhere with an indoor or enclosed pool which would make it safer for your young ones. However, we would like to remind you that no owner or company can take on your responsibility for your child while you are round the pool area.

  4. Maybe you like to take a pram with you for those long strolls along the beach shores. In this case you can always have a look on our website for properties that provide either storage space or have a garage.

  5. If you have young ones, you might want to consider booking somewhere with fewer stairs to climb such as an apartment or single story accommodations. This will make everything so much easier without limiting your choice of accommodation.187197453 (1)
  6. Look at the apartment or cottage and check to see if they will provide any toys or games, and see if there is a DVD player available. Even so, we would advise you to take some of the favourite toys and games as well as a new DVD for a quiet evening in after a long dynamic day at the beach.
  7. Check the area in which you want to make your booking to see if there are any local attractions. These could be local parks, castles to visit or even simple days at the beach.

  8. Now that you have packed your sun screen, nappies, and any other medicines you may need, make sure you look up the name and number of the local doctor that you could visit in case of an unexpected emergency.
  9. When you arrive at the property, make sure there are no sharp or unwanted objects lying around and that the area is safe for your child.
  10. Don’t forget that Mulberry Cottages does not expect its owners to provide cot linen and so you must remember to bring your own.  However, it’s a good idea to check on the website or give our team a call to see if the properties provide cots and high chairs.
