Hello For various reasons we didn’t have a good Christmas/New Year together as a family and we now have the opportunity to take some time off for Feb half term. Problem is I can’t figure out what to do. Have one pre schooler and one primary school age. Looking for a little luxury for the parents and some fun for the children. Was considering a Woolley Grange type place but also wondering if there exists a great family hotel with a heated pool somewhere like Spain. So many places have seasonal in heated pools. Budget is flexible because if the hotel is £££ we’ll just do a shorter trip (~3 nights) rather than the full week. Actually prefer not to be away for 7 nights anyway.
We did Het Heijderbos which had a second big indoor dome that was a bit like the jungle zone on the Crystal maze crossed with an amazing soft play centre. Except it wasn't very soft - all ropes and wooden climbing things and caves with a stream running through so you couldn't let little ones loose on their own but it was great fun doing it all together. I think one of the Belgian ones has something similar but pirate themed. My dc were 3 and 6 when we went and they loved it.
Aquaworld Budapest, water park connected to Ramada hotel where their own pools are heated to 38C. Lovely at 10pm in the evening to be looking at the stars whilst in the pool I think countries were they have a long tradition of bathing do this kinda thing really well
