English Family Hotels

There are more and more wonderful hotels in the UK designed with the family in mind. With tiny babies you can have your first 'trip' away to a city like Bath, where a buggy is all you need and getting out and about is simple. Bath has plenty of young families so restaurants and shops won’t eye you suspiciously as you enter. For older children, who need entertaining, country house hotels offer the great outdoors and plenty of space for them to ‘express’ themselves. Or head to the coast for a few days sand castle making. We are currently busy hunting out great hotels for UFH and will keep you updated when we find them.

Bath, England

Set in a wonderful countryside location just outside Bath this is a fantastic hotel for a short break with the family. There is plenty to do both at the hotel and locally and as one of the Von Essen family hotels your youngsters will be welcomed with open arms, particularly by Peanut the resident spaniel! Wooley Grange is one of the rare hotels designed for adults but organised around families. We think it is a great location for a well needed rest – let someone else cook and clean up whilst you have fun with the children.

Suitable for: All ages

Worcester, England

With two children under two it takes a certain hotel to make a hotel stay really feel like a break, the Elms, one of the Von Essen Luxury Family Hotels really managed to succeed in this. The smaller size of this hotel and the wonderfully relaxed, homely atmosphere really lends itself to families with young children. The Three Bears Den is one of the most welcoming crèches I have ever visited.

Suitable for: All ages

Fowey Hall was the inspiration behind Toad Hall in 'Wind in the Willows' and sits in a spectacular location overlooking the sailing and fishing port of Fowey on the South Cornish coast, within its original walled gardens and with commanding views of the river estuary and far out to sea.

Fowey Hall

Bath, England

The Royal Crescent Hotel is wonderful spoiling and luxurious yet at the same time incredibly homely. All of the rooms and suites are different but each is beautifully decorated with antiques and stunning paintings. Many have working open fire places – there is something incredibly romantic about a drink before dinner in front of your own log fire. The hotel is part of the Classic set of the Von Essen Hotel group – although not one of its dedicated family set we feel that it is a great option for young families.

Suitable for: All ages.

Suggested Itineraries

We know it is often difficult, with the huge number of hotels out there, to know which one to go for, which combines with which and what sort of costs they are going to be. Here we have put together a few of our favourite options to give you a starting point. Any of these options can be changed, tweeked or added to so please do ask. The prices are per person and include international flights and private transfers. As the rates at all hotels change a great deal from their High Seasons (i.e the most popular times of the year to be there) to their Low Seasons (they often have great discounts at this time) we have based the 'From' costs on a good time of year to be in the country, the dates are included in the text at the bottom. Please do call us for a quote based on your dates.
