October Half Term

You’ve only just got rid of the kids after the summer holidays and before you know it, it’s October and the little critters are out on half term.

In other words, it's time for a family holiday. Whether you're all in need of some R&R and a bit of late season sun (bits of Europe can still be warm) or looking for something slightly more adventurous, we've got the inside track on all the best family destinations.

If it's a relaxing break you're after, we can make sure that is exactly what you get: even with the kids in tow, this is possible. We know the hotels with the best Kids Clubs and activities on offer, so the children can be kept busy as much or as little as they (or you...) choose; we will also ensure there are babysitting services available in the evenings, so you can spend some time to yourselves and enjoy a peaceful meal.

If you're planning a luxury family holiday for the October half term with young children then much-loved children's party people Sharky & George, who we've joined forces with, will put together a carefully selected goodie bag kitted with bits and bobs to keep the children entertained throughout the trip.
