Hi, I'm looking for my first holiday abroad in years and need advice as I'm overwhelmed. My husband and I want to go somewhere September time when we'll have a nearly four year old and six month old.
We'd like our money to go as far as possible as I'm on maternity leave.
I like sandy beaches and relaxing (as much as possible with two preschoolers!) DH likes to do things. Warm weather, a short flight and somewhere fun would be great.
Years ago, pre children, we went to gran Canaria, and Malta. Do you have any suggestions of great destinations and recommendations of affordable holiday companies please?

We have just come back from Tenerife and absolutely loved it there. We stayed in Costa Adeje which is 15 mins walk from Playa dad las Americas which wasn't as bad as we expected! We loved walking on the promenade which was very well kept and very clean and plenty to see.
The flight is 4 hours and there is no time difference which is good for the little ones. We weren't in the slightest bit harassed and everything was cheap and easy. As I say we went out there not quite knowing what to expect and were very pleasantly surprised. If your DH wants to do things there is plenty to do on the island including hiking up to the volcano or walking to various picturesque fishing villages.
Saw many people there with young children and babies. Great climate year-round.

Have a look on Jet2 Holidays. I always book my packages with them as they have 22kg allowance, transfers are good and generally very resonable. Lanzarote would be my fav! I've been going there since I was a child and I love it! grin

Although not guaranteed to have good weather, Cornwall does have a milder climate and might be worth considering, it could also save you a fair bit of money if the budget is quite tight.

I know you'd probably prefer to find somewhere abroad but there are some beautiful areas of Cornwall to explore like the Lizard Peninsula and you can even stay in lighthouses!

Here are a few other ideas if you still haven't decided

Corfu. Short flight, so many perfect resorts. Roda beach in particular is fab for young children. Would recommend self catering and choosing different restaurants every evening, plus you have more freedom and facilities to suit yourselves!!
