Big Fat Summer Holiday

Big Fat Summer Holiday

Wildlife encounters. Big thrills. Sandy coves ready for bucket and spade action. Great memories come from spending time together. It’s what family summer holidays are all about. We love setting off on a family bike ride down country lanes or hiring a narrowboat and making like explorers. Clamber through trees on the high ropes – don’t look down! From farmstays to theme park days, England has big fat holidays aplenty for the whole family to relax and recharge their batteries. And with endless opportunities for fun and laughter, it’s the stuff family photo albums are made of.
