Family Holidays and Child Friendly Breaks UK & Ireland

Having experienced some of our most memorable UK family holidays right here on home turf was the reason that we began our website to champion the 'staycation'. There are so many hidden gems just waiting to be discovered right on your doorstep that completely eliminates the stressful and costly trips abroad. There is 'simplicity' (comfort?) to piling EVERYTHING in the car and taking it all with you just in case.  Away with the Kids aims to highlight these GLORIOUS places to stay for family holidays in the UK & Ireland - ranging from luxury country hotels or stunning beachside ones; quaint rural holiday cottages or luxuriously appointed holiday abodes; simple campsites, fancy glamping sites, self catering lodges in hill-walking country, and the refreshingly ever evolving list goes on…

We know the owners that we work with and the places that we represent and tell you what you might expect.  We work hard for our well-deserved family holiday, both in time AND money - we strive to enjoy it, come what may! Our site helps you do the same.

Family Holidays UK & Ireland - from the stunning and abundant beaches in Cornwall, the glorious scenery in Pembrokeshire, Wales, the sedate rolling hills of Norfolk, the greenery and sparkle that abounds in Ireland, the mountains and lakes of Scotland, the magic that is The Lake District, our island(s) have so much to offer for any family holiday UK or short family break - with no flights to contend with - just chuck your things in the car or climb aboard that train and go Away with the Kids.
