Dreading January? It can be a very blue month indeed; with the Christmas tree down, the lights switched off, and you’re heading back to work for another year. Many people use the first week of the new year to plan trips so that they have something to look forward to in the coming months.
Get ahead of the curve in 2019 and book your family holiday in before the new year crowds, why not have a look at some of our favourite family UK staycations.
The Great Value Family Holiday
Feeling the pinch after Christmas spending? A family break doesn’t need to be expensive, and we know the best places for a great value yet exciting and action-packed family holiday.
The scenic walks are a free, family-friendly experience, a great way to get the kids away from screens and into the outdoors to create lasting family memories. If you want something a little more exhilarating, there are plenty of opportunities for water sports in the Lake District and a lot of affordable boat hire options.
Hallmark Hotel Bournemouth East Cliff is also a perfect spot for an affordable family holiday, with the stretching sands of Bournemouth beach, and the inviting blue sea freely available. Pack a picnic, buckets and spades and have yourself a good old-fashioned day at Britain’s best beach.
There are Classic Family Rooms available at Hallmark Hotels Bournemouth East Cliff with space for two adults and up to three little guests. Each family room comes with Hallmark Hotel’s children’s packs, unlimited soft drinks throughout your stay, and special children’s menus.
The Family Weekend Break
Want to take a break outside of school holidays? A weekend break is the perfect option for you! We have hotels across the country, meaning a great night’s sleep and a family holiday is never too far away.
Whether it’s museums, days out, or unique attractions, Manchester is the perfect place for a family city-break and the Hallmark Inn Manchester is the ideal base to explore the vibrant city. The Science and Industry Museum is a must-visit for inquisitive children and adults alike, and Media City is just a short half hour car ride away where the kids can meet their TV favourites on the CBBC Interactive Tour.
Enjoy a blissful night’s sleep, at the Hallmark Inn Manchester which offers stylish and comfortable family rooms for up to two adults and two children.
If it’s non-stop entertainment and family fun you’re after, London is the perfect city for it. From the London Zoo to Harry Potter Studios, there is plenty to do and something for everyone to enjoy. Either of our London locations, Hallmark Hotel London Chigwell Prince Regent and Hallmark Hotel London Croydon Aerodrome, are perfectly suited to accommodate your whole family and offer a peaceful night’s sleep away from the bustling city centre.
The Dog-Friendly Holiday
If you’re anything like us, the dog is just as much a part of the family as anyone else so why should they miss out on the holiday fun? We know how important our four-legged friends are, which is why all our hotels are pet friendly.
Our Hallmark Hotel Gloucester is surrounded by beautiful walking spots that your dog, and family will adore. To the east of Gloucester, you have the beautiful Cotswolds where you can explore dog friendly villages like Chipping Camden and Bourton-on-the-Water. To the west of the hotel you can get lost in the extraordinary Wye Valley and the Forrest of Dean, a paradise for both dogs and dog-lovers.
The Classic Family Bedroom for three guests is ideal for a young family and beloved pet.
If you fancy more northern climates, the Hallmark Hotel Glasgow is a quick half hour drive from the famous River Irvine. Here your family and pooch can discover the wildlife that the river supports, including kingfishers, owls and herons, and take a walk around lush woodlands taking in the beautiful Scottish landscape.
Back at the central Glasgow hotel your family can enjoy loads of space in one of our two apartments or a spacious family room with space for up to four guests.
