May Half Term Family Holidays

Kids go free

Make the most of the May half term on a spectacular family holiday. The summer half term and bank holidays come just at the point where families are craving an escape from the school year and the chance to break out on a walking holiday in the company of experienced guides and activity leaders. What's more a May half term family holiday is the perfect time to explore the British countryside with kids, avoiding the height of summer and crowds that can come with that.

As the mercury rises, destinations to discover during May come into their own as we edge towards midsummer, with longer days and hopefully plenty of warm sunshine. A great way to enjoy the great outdoors is by staying at one of our comfortable country houses all across the UK.

Adventure by the sea as you explore Cornwall and it's stunning coast. Walks on the Lizard Peninsula reveal some of the county’s most rugged and dramatic scenery including Kynance Cove with its turquoise waters. Kids can stand on the most southerly point of the UK at Lizard Point and perhaps spot red-legged choughs. At the end of the day, kids of all ages will love relaxing back in St Ives with the outdoor pool and gardens.

Whether it’s the Dales or Moors, Yorkshire offers families wonderful adventure and activities in spring. Whitby in the North York Moors is close to the beach and historic harbour but has woods and moorlands to explore as well and you can even ride the steam train to Hogsmeade station like Harry Potter. 

New for families in 2021, explore the UK's oldest national park with it's pretty villages, limestone valleys and outcrops of millstone grit. The Peak District is easily accessible from our country house Peveril of the Peak and opens up adventures to Chatsworth House, along the Tissington Trail and opportunities to refuel with a bakewell slice where it was created!

So, don’t just have a family holiday - go on a real family outdoor adventure!
