For this years summer holidays, why not try travelling with your parents, siblings, and their kids? By going on holiday together, you can pool resources and get more for your money, plus you can also allow cousins to hang out and play together. The grandparents can also enjoy the time with their grandchildren.
Here are some ideas for holiday destinations with large group holiday accommodation for your multi-generational travel that ensures everyone has a great time as well.
1. Exmoor guided family walking
The Holnicote House offers a full-board package for the whole family, free children under 11 and discounted for teenagers and grandparents. With 35 bedrooms, there is also enough place for everyone. You can also book guided country walks that are doable for kids and grandparents alike, with the chance to see some wild ponies and red deer along the way. Other activities include a heated pool and even a putting green where everyone can play a few rounds just for fun!
2. Pembrokeshire coast
Celtic Haven was a farming hamlet that has now been turned into a modern resort. With cottages offering enough sleeping space for up to 12, this is the perfect destination for your big family group. Children will find the heated pool and the adventure playground enough to entertain them for hours. However, there is also the coastal path for some family walks and the beach for some sandcastle-building fun. Even better, this destination also welcomes pets!
3. Camber Sands beach house
Bring the whole family for a beach house holiday at Camber Sands. You can find holiday homes suited for up to 8 people within the 3-mile beach itself. You can all picnic at the grassy dunes too!
4. Port Logan seaside
Sea View in Dumfries and Galloway is a quite isolated holiday home that will offer your family a quieter stay. But dont think that the kids will be bored here because just across the road is a sandy beach with many picnic tables. This is, in fact, the old-fashioned family beach destination. With three suites and each with their own bathrooms, everyone has enough space and there will be no need to fight over the bathrooms!
5. Irish holiday home
Cross the Irish Sea with the extended family and rent a villa with 5 bedrooms. Three miles from Newmarket, you won’t find yourself in the middle of nowhere. Have free use of the games rooms with a pool table, or swim at the blue flag beach in Ballybunion. You can also organize a group visit to Blarney Castle to kiss the stone.
6. Breton resort
Everyone can also go across the Channel and spend the holidays in the Les Mouettes Parc in Brittany. The park offers many activities for guests of all ages: from crazy gold, cinema, and spa. A giant and the beach at Carantec a mile away offer you options for swimming fun. There is also a free kidís club for children between the ages of 4 and 12, allowing the adults some kid-free time. Holiday homes for up to 8 people in 3 rooms can be rented.
Traveling with the extended family is a unique experience, allowing everyone to spend more time together, something that is becoming rarer nowadays. Such moments are the best gift you can give the grandparents as well, seeing all their kids and grandchildren having fun all together.
