Holiday Recommendations

sun-clipart_1-wt3ukbIf the thought of going on holiday with twins doesn’t exactly get your heart racing with excitement then don’t worry. Help is at hand! We’ve rounded up some of the best online pages out there as well as giving some personal recommendations from some of our very own twin mums. Do you have a hidden gem you’d like to share with us? If so let us know!

The Telegraph recently did a round up of their top 10 European resorts for under fives. Read it here.

The guardian  also did  a lovely round up of their top 20 holidays for families. Read it here.

There is also a Twin Friendly Holidays facebook page. If the founders get enough people to Like the page they are hoping to convince holiday companies to think about giving discounts to twin families.

We’ve also had some recommendations from some of you.

Jo recommends Colwall Park near the Malvern Hills
“They have a family suite on the top floor of the hotel and the baby monitor reaches to the lounge and restaurant. So we were able to put the boys to bed and then go and enjoy a meal together. There is a nice large garden at the back of the property for the kids to run around in and there is a ton of stuff to do in the area.”

Lowri recommends Southwinds Condos in North Carolina, USA

“We were travelling to the US to meet up with family and booked a week at a condo near a town called Beaufort in North Carolina. There was plenty for the kids to do with two pools in the complex and the beach a 100m walk from where we were staying. The town of Beaufort is also really pretty with lots of pirate themed things to do – reputedly it was the home of the pirate Blackbeard. There’s also a town tour on a London bus!”

Julie recommends Calcot Manor in the Cotswolds
“This is a lovely country house hotel and spa with an Ofsted registered crèche and a night time listening service. It begins to feel like a holiday when you  pop the kids in the creche and nip along to the spa for some relaxing treatments! They also do a  children’s dinner sitting at around 5pm (the kids have dinner whilst the parents have wine) and later in the evening you can slip out to a grown-up dinner in the restaurant once the kids are asleep. It’s not cheap but is lovely as a restorative mini break.”
