we chose to stay in one of their newer mobile homes the Avant which you can see here. It came with three bedrooms which included two singles a bunked and a queen size bedroom. We also had the add ons of the ‘welcome pack’ which includes the usual tea and coffee, olive oil and the few essentials that you’d need for a self catering week away.
We chose the Aloha Village Parc in Serignan Plage in the South of France for a number of reasons, it was really easy to fly from Bristol to (and cheap flights less than £200 for three of us return), it was rated five stars on Eurocamps site and had 8* on Trip Advisor (which is first port of call when looking at places) and it was very colourful (essential!).
Whats great about serviced apartments like Cove (especially with children) is the ability to cook for yourself. There are many supermarkets in the area and we managed to pick up enough groceries to make sure we have a packed lunch eat day too. I find this helps so much with kids and also obviously saves a bunch of money too. So we were able to go for treats like cake and coffee without breaking the bank as we were preparing all our other meals ourselves.
Legoland really was such a lovely day and the perfect half term activity and staying over in a hotel either side of the day meant we were all rested but got to spend some quality time together. The pass we had meant we could have made it a two day trip which I think if you have older kids would be ace but we felt like as we were only going on the little rides a day was plenty.
We decided to take the day pretty slowly at Legoland especially as we have two very little kids. We did get a Q Bot which meant we could reserve the next ride as we walked along and so didn’t have to queue but actually I don’t think we would have had to have waited all that long on the rides we were going on. My favourite bit was riding the helicopter with Wilf in Duplo Valley
We all had such a wonderful break at Landal Dylan Coastal and are already planning to check out their other locations in the future. We could easily have stayed longer and used the location as a base for exploring other parts of Camarthenshire. If you visit the location and do drive I would recommend a day trip to Tenby.
watergate Bay simply is THE most family friendly hotel we’ve ever stayed at. We are lucky enough that we’ve had the opportunity to review a few now and whilst they all have our plus points Tom and I have both said that we can see ourselves booking into this place year after year as it’s just so perfect for all our needs. It helps of course to be set in beautiful Cornwall and we found our journey down to be so stress free.
I visited Watergate Bay hotel this time last year for a weekend with some Instagrammer friends. It was my first night away from my daughter (she had just turned one) so was quite a big deal I guess but was such a wonderful trip I thought at the time how I would love to take the whole family back again in the future.
Brownsea Island was actually the location of the first ever Scout camp back in 1907. You can catch the ferry over from Poole Harbour which takes about 20 minutes (and is very fun!). I think the ferries go pretty much every hour (although definitely double check before you go as the last ferry is around 5pm).
favourite things to do in the area was to check out the free mini golf designed by artists Craig Redman and Karl Maier. The kids had a blast and as it was such a sunny day it had a real festival feel about it. With people sitting on picnic benches around the side enjoying their afternoons. Would definitely recommend an afternoon here if you are in the area.
Having been a favourite home for Henry the 8th in his childhood its walls have seen a very interesting past. Bought by millionaires Stephen and Virginia Courtauld in 1933 it was in disrepair and needed a huge amount of work. It’s to their credit that they turned it into this beautiful art deco mansion!
