The wide range of child-friendly self-catering properties available, from cottages to tents, luxurious or otherwise, help to keep costs down too, while allowing you to make the most of Britain’s wonderful farm shops and farmers’ markets. Beautiful countryside studded with castles and country houses is balanced out by dynamic cities.
