Family breaks in spring

Family holidays in spring

Family holidays in spring needn’t mean soggy BBQs and missing tent pegs. England is packed with fun and engaging things to do with kids, from dizzying treetop adventures to interactive museum exhibits and thrilling theme park breaks. For more of a laid-back pace, escape to a Cotswolds farm stay where you can spot the beasties on a nature trail and befriend the farmyard’s residents. How about a once-in-a-lifetime experience you’d never expect? Let the roar of tigers and lions lull you to sleep as you bed down on a bespoke luxury safari in the deepest, darkest wilds of... Kent.
