Holidaying in a Sykes family cottage

Whether it's a pre or post baby holiday you are after, relax in boutique style with your family in a Sykes Cottage

family holiday main

In the last few months before your baby is born, a foreign holiday is normally out of the question. Escape the stress of the imminent arrival and plan a relaxing break for you and your partner before two become three. Indulge yourselves at a boutique hotel-style cottage with luxurious furnishings to enjoy without the worry of sticky fingerprints and gorgeous but breakable objects! Enjoy a romantic couple of days together in a cosy cottage before the new arrival makes an appearance.

Renting a holiday cottage with Sykes Cottages means a holiday with a new baby in tow can be a breeze. With a self-catering holiday cottage, you’ve got all the space you need to sterilise bottles and heat baby food all with a wonderful view from the kitchen window. Choose a cottage near the beach or in the heart of the countryside for a well-earned family holiday. Plan a realistic itinerary to minimise your stress levels and enjoy the precious time as a family.

Your home away from home is exactly that, so you can create a relaxing atmosphere to keep your newborn in her normal routine. Think (hopefully) fewer tantrums and sleepless nights all round! Most holiday cottages provide cots, high chairs and stairgates so all you’ll need to pack are the essentials for a week away. If you’re travelling with older children as well, you’ll appreciate the extra space a holiday cottage offers, perfect for letting off steam and spreading their toys out. Choose a cottage anywhere in the UK for an unforgettable first family holiday or perhaps a chance to introduce him or her to the rest of the family.

Our family cottages aren’t just geared up for little ones; they’re the perfect place for Mum and Dad to relax too! Choose a cosy cottage with a woodburner to curl up in front of once you’ve settled your baby down for the night. Perhaps you’ll make the most of the fully-equipped kitchen and cook up a storm or relax with a good book. Choose a self-catering cottage as the perfect location for a first family holiday for convenience and flexibility not to mention a great time away.
