Are you thinking of a family staycation in the UK this year? We've some great hotel staycation ideas - perfect for families looking for a getaway with a bit of personality.
No two Best Western hotels are the same – each has its own unique personality and story to tell. With more than 270 hotels across Great Britain and unfortunately too many to squeeze into this section, we have selected three staycations that are perfect for families looking for a getaway with a bit of personality this year.
Whether you have kids or are just a big kid yourself, splash out and head for Waterworld, which is within easy walking distance from the hotel. Or take a short trip to discover thrills and adventures at Alton Towers. For family adventures with less of a white-knuckle theme, Trentham Gardens and the scenic Caldon canal are within easy reach, while the breath-taking rolling landscape of the Peak District is just 20 miles away and definitely is worth the drive.
There are some fascinating visitor attractions nearby, such as the World of Beatrix Potter in Bowness-on-Windermere, or Rydal Mount and Dove Cottage, both once inhabited by 19th Century poet laureate William Wordsworth. But this area is really all about the great outdoors. Wander lonely as a cloud in the footsteps of Wordsworth or mess about in boats like Swallows and Amazons. Hire a mountain bike, ride on an open-top bus, whatever you do make sure you get exploring.
You will be very hard pushed to find a better location in the capital. Hyde Park is right on the door step, while attractions such as the Victoria & Albert Museum and the natural History and Science Museums are both about a mile away, to keep the kids entertained. The West End theatres are close by too, as well as endless shops and a plethora of amazing restaurants a capital break has everything you need for the perfect family break.
These are just a small selection of the brilliant family breaks waiting to be discovered at Best Western hotels. With children under 12 staying and eating breakfast for free, there has never been a better time to pack up your gang and enjoy a family adventure together.
