Does anyone know a company that provides holiday lets for families with more than one baby/toddler. We need to visit family in the UK with a two year old and tiny baby later this year.

Take a travel cot with you? Or see if anyone has a bedside crib like a Chicco next to me that you could take for the baby. Also, consider room layout, we have found it very hard to work out from photos online whether there is actually enough space to get 2 cots/children in.

Why wouldn't the toddler cope in a normal bed?
Is there a particular concern?

Take a bed guard and put the two year old in a bed

We used to use baby boltholes.

Also, consider a large travel cot (for bed size) and a moses?

When our were this age we stayed in several holiday lets. Some provided a cot for the baby. If not we used a travel cot. And toddler went in a normal bed. No issues.

I've used an inflatable bed since my DS was two for travel. Folds away small in its own bag and came with a pump. It's served us well over the years! Has sides on it so they don't roll off.

If you are booking direct with the owner then drop them an email/call them and ask. We used to run holiday lets and we always had a spare travel cot if it was needed in addition to the cot provided - or we knew people locally who could lend us one. You might need to consider bringing your own bedding for the baby though.

When DD was 2 she was in a cotbed without bedguards so quite used to sleeping without rolling out.

We had her in a normal sinlge bed at my mum's and in a holiday let and I actually think it was a lot easier as the bed is wider than a cot bed.
