We've got a baby and toddler and can't face going abroad at the moment as it's just too stressful with s small baby (we're wimps I know).

I'm not overly keen on caravan parks but would love a self catering cottage/apartment with something to do for the kids like a play area or working farm.

Did Centerparcs last year but fancy something s bit different. Any ideas?

This place had a barn with toys and tabletennis table, farm animals and play equipment. And a pool!

Greenwood Grange in Dorset is ok but haven't been there since it expanded.

The Helpful Holidays site has check boxes for stuff like this - or call them, they are indeed very helpful.

We stayed here when DS was 18mths old (DD was 4). It has a big play area and indoor swimming pool plus animals to feed. The place was FANTASTIC!

We haven't been but I think these look lovely - www.featherdown.co.uk/index.html and they're not that expensive even during school holidays. Great for the age of your dc as lots of space and staying on a working farm with your own chicken coop!

We stayed here http://www.smythenfarmholidaycottages.co.uk/ last summer with our toddler and it was great. They do pony rides, have a little play area and games room and it's quite close to a few attractions such as exmoor zoo, woolacombe etc.

Another one for you to look at here

We went there last year...2 two year olds, a 4 year old, a 13 year old and 4 adults and it was great smile

Could try here near part of cornwall only an hour from exeter.

Big fan of the lakes for kids. DS was content to throw stones in water for hours. Coniston is a nice
Place to base yourself.
