Family Friendly Holidays in the UK

There is something very special about getting out of town with your family. Whether it’s a family weekend away in a nearby town, or a grand reunion over Christmas, these are memories that last a lifetime. Not only do family holidays give you a chance to relax and unwind in a new location, but they also offer a unique opportunity. Taking your children on holiday teaches them about different places. It exposes them to new environments and allows them to grow as individuals. You could be conquering mountains for the first time in the Peak District, or discovering fossils along the Jurassic coast. No matter what, family holidays provide a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in your surroundings.

One of the best parts of a family holiday in the UK is the incredible wealth of options around the destination. The UK is full of fascinating history, breathtaking natural beauty, and all manner of parks and museums to explore. Depending on your children’s age group, you might find certain locations and destinations more appealing. Very young children might enjoy a countryside holiday, counting the lambs and sheep in the fields beyond your Party House. Slightly older children might love a trip to a water park, aquarium, or historical attraction they may have learned about in school. Regardless of where you go, you can be sure of one thing. Both you and your family will have a memorable adventure and see something they hadn’t seen before. Party Houses have family holiday houses throughout the UK, which means you can plan your holiday according to your family’s interests. Additionally, our venues can accommodate large groups, making them perfect for family party or family celebration weekends. You could embrace your inner explorer, or sunbathe by the pool. Either way, we’ll help you find the perfect spot for your family weekend away.

Family Party with the Pets:

At Party Houses, we understand that pets are a part of the family. A family holiday just isn’t the same unless everyone is there. Thankfully, many of our venues are pet-friendly, making them perfect for the whole family. This not only makes your destination feel like a home away from home but eliminates a world of unnecessary stress. Planning a holiday is a wonderful thing to do, but it can involve a little admin. Booking a pet-friendly Party House not only makes it a real family holiday but also eliminates the need to arrange pet sitters or kennels. This makes it possible for you to really enjoy your holiday, without worrying whether the pet sitter has remembered to fill the water bowl. It also means that your furry friends get a little holiday of their own, with space to run around and enjoy the countryside. This way, your family weekend away can be enjoyed by everyone.

Family Party with All the Extras:

If you’re organizing a family party as part of your UK family holiday, why not organise some entertainment and catering? The lovely part about a family party is celebrating an occasion surrounded by people you know and love. But as is the nature of any event, they can take a lot of planning and organising. Party Houses work in connection with many service providers, that can organise everything you need for your family party. This way, you can relax while someone else tackles the food and entertainment. Depending on the occasion, you might want to organise some games and activities. You could have a family game of laser tag or participate in a dance lesson. Depending on your age range, it might work to organise a program of different activities to keep everyone entertained. Either way, a family celebration weekend is an opportunity to relax and kick back. Organising a caterer can free you up to spend time with your family. This way, you can be a part of your family party rather than a coordinator.

Best destinations for a family weekend away.

A family holiday, UK or elsewhere, is lots of fun… but where is the best place to go? With so many fascinating places to visit throughout the UK, there’s no need to hop onto an airplane to have a fantastic family weekend away. To help make the process easier, we have included a few suggestions for our favourite family-friendly activities in the UK. These suggestions are just a few of the many incredible things there are to see.

Jurassic coast:

With a name like Jurassic Coast, it is unsurprising that this incredible stretch of coast is worth a visit with the kids. Any child fascinated by dinosaurs will greatly love exploring this area. Between beautiful beaches, fascinating museums, and historic coastal walks, this area boasts an incredible selection of activities for those interested in earth’s history. One particularly attractive activity in this area is fossil hunting, an activity that really brings the textbook to life. This is something that can be exciting and fascinating for the whole family, and that can spark passion and curiosity in your children.

Peak District:

The first official national park in the UK, and an area of unequivocal serenity, the Peak District is a must-see for active families who enjoy getting out into nature. The Peak District is home to a wealth of hikes and caves to explore. It also features many market towns, activity centres, parks and museums. Many of our largest venues, such as Toft Hall and Hamps Hall and Barn are located in the Peak District. These venues can accommodate groups of 40 or more, making them ideal for large family reunions and gatherings. Guests looking for a relaxing countryside stay will find the Peak District equally appealing.


Wales is a particularly lovely area to visit, with plenty of natural beauty as well as a fine collection of entertaining activities. The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path is perfect for nature lovers. There are many foraging courses available in which guests can learn to forage edible ingredients from the area. Those looking for some real adventure might enjoy a zip-line ride over the mountains with Zip World. Children of 5 and up can participate in this activity with adult supervision. If you’re looking for something a little more laid back, visiting the lions and giraffes at Folly Farm could be a nice alternative. Depending on where you end up staying, you could enjoy anything from pottery or chocolate making, to daring adventures through the Welsh countryside.
