Any recommendations on where to go? We have to take a week off to use up holiday and I can't face a long flight abroad for sun. Children are 4 and 2.

Bluestone? Great pool and indoor play area plus activities if you like. Golf buggy to hire if you cba walking around the site in the freezing rain. Handy for Tenby and other gorgeous Pembs beaches if the weather is ok. Also Folly Farm great for preschool dc.

Center Parcs.
Pricey but only the same as Bluestone.....and you can then spend the entire time in the warm tropical swimming dome and don't even need to venture out in the cold.

Thanks for the replies. Will look up Bluestone. Is it a holiday park?
Have looked into Center Parks but friends have said it's a waste for kids of our ages - better to wait until they're older and can make the most of it.

Center Parcs actually has loads of stuff for your kids ages.
In the pool at each park there is a specific children's pirate cove pool for little ones so parents can sit around nearby and watch them, without other swimmers and older kids being too near.
You really should check it out because there are tons of activities for little ones and fab play parks and forest activities.

I guess your friend is meaning the bigger water slides are for people over 1.22m but on the main water slides, you can sit them on your lap or if they have a life vest on, they can go down some on their own.
We've taken ours from age two onwards and always had lots of fun.
Lovely warm water and brilliant parent facilities....Center Parcs always wins Tommy baby awards for their baby and toddler facilities.

This place is fab for toddlers.

Can feed the chickens and collect eggs every day, pony rides, lovely swimming pool, play areas, soft play barn, beautiful cottages, fire making with marshmallow toasting in the woods. Really recommend it.

Clydey Cottages pipped Bosinver for me - pure bliss for knackered parents!

Last year in Feb half term, when DD was 5, we went to the Alton Towers hotel and waterpark. They had a cbeebies event on (for free) in the evening. It was absolutely fantastic, so much better than expected.

Have a look at Ribby Hall. It's perfect for toddlers and the accommodation is lovely. Loads of activities and things to keep everyone occupied even if the weather is awful.
