Best UK Destinations for a holiday with a baby
30 / June / 2022
As any new parent knows, traveling with a baby can feel daunting at the best of times. That’s why a self-catering break in a UK location can often be the wisest choice – there are no airport queues, flight delays or luggage allowance to worry about! A UK break also provides the chance to spend quality family time in serene surroundings, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Upmarket holiday parks make a fantastic choice for parents with babies, as they offer a beautiful location, all the home comforts needed for a baby, plus plenty of family-friendly activities right on your doorstep.
If you’re tempted by the thought of a getaway, then check out some of the top locations in the UK for a holiday with a baby.
Home to the impressive 95-mile-long Jurassic Coast with family-friendly beaches, charming villages and lush farmland, Dorset makes a fantastic choice for a holiday with a baby. Crowned a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001, the stunning Lulworth Cove with its clear turquoise waters, bobbing fishing boats and picture-postcard village is the perfect place to while away a few hours with your baby in tow. The popular seaside town of Weymouth, where our award-winning Bowleaze Cove Holiday Park & Spa (formerly Waterside Holiday Park) is located, is also well worth a visit. Here, you’ll find a popular sandy beach and plenty of shops and restaurants. You may also want to take your little monkey to Monkey World – a 65-acre ape sanctuary and rescue centre.
Blessed with beautiful beaches, welcoming harbour towns and countryside aplenty, Cornwall is often ranked as one of the most baby-friendly locations in the UK. There’s a whole plethora of baby-safe attractions to keep you busy here. Whitsand Bay offers a tranquil three-mile stretch of sandy beach, and is considered one of Cornwall’s hidden gems. Or you can take your baby to Polperro – a traditional seafront fishing village with a fantastic range of family-friendly cafes and restaurants. You could also visit the world-famous Eden Project (the whole site is pushchair-friendly) or head to the local aquarium – your baby is guaranteed to love the bright lights and colours! Our Tregoad Holiday Park is within reach of all this stunning county has to offer, making it a great place for UK family holidays.
Boasting a beach-lined landscape, miles of countryside and a choice of vibrant cities; Devon makes a great choice for a family holiday. If you’re seeking peace and quiet, you could head to the serene north coast, or if you’re after plenty of attractions then family-friendly Torquay has a choice of beaches, a model village and a range of museums.
With honey-coloured cottages, plus plenty of farms and walking trails, the Cotswolds is a wonderful place to go on holiday with a baby. When you’re not soaking up the views, you could visit the animals at Cotswold Farm Park, or feel like Gulliver in Lilliput as you push your little one around The Model Village at Bourton-on-the-Water.
The Lake District
The UK’s most popular National Park and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Lake District offers stunning scenery with lush mountains, craggy hilltops and glistening lakes. There are a whole host of walks that can be enjoyed with your baby in a sling – plus an aquarium, a farm, and the World of Beatrix Potter exhibition at Bowness-On-Windermere.
