Child Friendly Holiday Destinations For New Parents

The Summer holidays are now here so it’s the best chance to make the most of spending quality time together as a new family. Yet where to you go on holiday with babies and toddlers?

With the help of Babythingz — a leading UK supplier of cute cosytoes for prams and buggies — we’ve discovered the top child-friendly holiday destinations for you to choose from, as well as tips for travelling with young ones.

Cornwall

I would have to list my home county as the top child friendly destination of course, due to its beautiful coastline with peaceful and exciting spots to discover. With it still being within the UK it’s easier to cut down on travel time, especially if you have a fussy baby.

There are lots of secluded holiday cottages to let down here which are great for families with crying babies and boisterous loud toddlers. If you choose accommodation close to the beach it’s practically a free day out also. Cornwall has lots of places visit like Newquay Zoo and the Minack Theatre, which is based in Porthcurno and features comedy puppet shows for kids.

You also have The Eden Project and Dairyland to explore and have fun. But for me the best place to visit in Cornwall is the beach. Cornwall has many beaches with different facilities at each. My favourite is Perranporth, not only is it just 10 minutes from my house but it’s very child-friendly as well. The car park is literally beside the beach so great with the kids. It’s a very sandy beach with a pub on the beach as well as a restaurant and a little bistro overlooking the sea.

Holiday prep: have you got everything? What about insurance?

The number of people going abroad for their holidays has grown from 55% to 57% according to the ABTA Holiday Habits report of 2017. Indeed, holidays have become less of a luxury and more of a lifestyle option. But are we forgetting something? Are we taking out travel insurance before we go, and if so, what exactly does it cover? With work accident solicitor group, True Solicitors, we take a look at the facts.

Why do some people skip insurance?

ABTA reported that 25% of people going on holiday didn’t take out insurance in the months leading up to May 2017. This is 3% more than May 2016’s data. However, this differed between age ranges but was commonly problematic among young people travelling abroad.

31% of 18-24-year-olds went abroad without insurance in May 2016. This figure increased by 9% in the following year. 25-34-year-olds were also guilty of this risky move, with 31% of jet-setters not insured in 2016 — growing to 38% in 2017.

Top Tips For Visiting Canada – Niagara Falls

As you know from some of my older posts, Canada is a special place for me. Yes My sister lives there and yes it’s my favourite holiday destination. But I have never shared my tops tips with you on why Canada especially Niagara Falls is one of the best places to visit. I want to add that Canadians are extremely friendly and helpful so don’t be afraid to ask for help or directions while you are there.

Niagara Falls is one of natures wonders of the world. The majestic falls are stunning. Taking a boat ride on the Lady of the Mist around the falls is not to be missed. If you head to the falls at night they do a breathtaking light show with the falls lit up in different colours. We stayed in a hotel right on the falls and the relaxing sound of the water from the waterfalls by night is amazing.
