About Us

Choosing the right place for a family holiday can be difficult. That’s why – back in 2007, we launched Child Friendly Cottages. Eight years on, we’re still a family business helping other families find great places to stay.

Child Friendly Cottages is a unique collection of child-friendly self-catering holiday cottages, predominantly across the UK and France. We’re focused – and do what it says on the tin! Just child-friendly cottages. Not hotels, nor campsites, nor places to eat.

Our cottage owners welcome children of all ages. The listings include a wide range of properties to suit different needs and budgets – lovely places for families of all shapes and sizes. We look for properties that enable families to escape their daily routine and return home with great memories.

Detailed information about each property is provided to help parents make an informed decision about their family holiday. Perhaps you have an early waking toddler and want to know whether the cottage bedrooms have blackout lining? Or maybe you have older children who would like access to a swimming pool or games room? Or possibly you need somewhere with a downstairs bedroom for grandma? We have tried to include lots of detail so you can find the best place for your family’s requirements.

It is important to note that Child Friendly Cottages does not own or operate any of the properties advertised on this website. All bookings are made directly with the cottage owner – each advert contains all the contact information you need. You pay no commission or booking fee, so in general save money compared to booking via an agency.

Time is precious as a parent, and rather than waste it looking at many different websites, we hope Child Friendly Cottages will enable you to quickly find the best self-catering cottage for your family holiday.
