English Tourism Week is on the horizon – just behind that field of cow parsley, in that freshly boiled pot of tea, between the sheets of that medieval lodge, at the top of that fell. Some of the UK’s top family travel bloggers have joined forces to share their ideas for places to visit In England with kids.
Places to Visit In England With Kids
This is glamping at its absolute – yet affordable – best. Somerset Yurts have thought of everything to make your stay amazing, right down to a little solar radio and the teapot, fire pit, deckchairs and lanterns. Waiter not included. There is an indoor barn for cooking, eating and washing – camping at it’s most glamourous.
The Lake District
The Lake District, it’s brilliant for families, and for romantic getaways. Bounce in the treetop trampoline nets at Brockhole, walk around Windermere and climb some fells. Climbing your first fell is a magical rite of passage.
History lovers, Horrible Histories fans and fellow house fantasy dreamers, if you are looking for somewhere unusual to stay this year with family or friends, look no further, but act quickly, these will fill up fast! From 1st July 2016 you will be able to stay overnight in a medieval lodge at Warwick Castle in the ‘Knight’s Village’. These two-storey lodges look perfect for weekends away with medieval evening entertainment and two day access to the Castle and its attractions.
