About Child Friendly Holiday Cottages

Created for parents by parents…


We know how hard it is to be a parent as we have three children under 10 years old.

We also know about cottages as we have our own child friendly holiday cottages in Northumberland.

As such we understand the difference between cottage owners who provide the extra service and equipment required by sleep-deprived mums and dads, and those who pay lip service to these requirements simply to generate more bookings.  It’s the extra touches which make all the difference – we know that even just finding plastic cups, bowls and plates can ease the stress of a cottage holiday…

In late 2013 we created The Cottage Cooperative, which has a number of websites like this one to help guests find exactly the type of cottage they are looking for.  Cottages listed on our websites are owned by like-minded members who abide by a genuine code of advertising standards and are committed to offering a high quality service to guests.

For this reason there will never be hundreds of cottages on this website, but as members must agree to our standards before advertising, you should enjoy more peace of mind when booking.  We may well not yet have a cottage of the size you require in the area you want, but please check back soon as membership is growing slowly but surely.

All of the cottages in the Child Friendly Holiday Cottages collection and are listed on this website not only because they have the facilities required by busy parents, but also on the understanding that each member must provide a relaxing experience for every guest.

So we hope you find the cottages listed here provide everything you need to ensure you enjoy your holiday just as much as your children.

All you should have to do is arrive, relax and unwind.

Happy holidays!
