Baby-friendly accommodation – enjoy a stress-free break with Classic Cottages

Let’s face it, holidaying abroad with a little one can be rather challenging – so new parents should consider the great advantages of a UK holiday cottage getaway...
April 2, 2012 - PRLog -- Offering 700 coastal and country cottages in Cornwall, Dorset, Devon and Somerset, Classic Cottages’ website has a very useful baby-friendly option. With a single click, the search automatically shows only properties that have cots, highchairs, stair-gates, baby baths, bath mats, changing mats and socket covers as standard.  It’s perfect for parents with babies and saves schlepping all that bulky baby paraphernalia into the car on top of the normal hefty baby or toddler luggage allowance.

Classic Cottages also offers special value-added extras that ensure relaxation levels peak while on holiday – from a chef to cook delicious meals to the delivery of locally-sourced food – or, for real bliss, how about yoga lessons in the fresh air of the property’s garden?  

Anthony Skitt, Managing Director of Classic Cottages, says: “A self-drive cottage break also provides more privacy than a holiday that involves a hotel and an aeroplane – minimising guilt if your bundle of joy or toddler likes to let off steam noisily. And of course, a big plus of holidaying with a baby is that you can often enjoy good value accommodation costs and fewer crowds during the off-peak season.”

Classic Cottages highlights some of its key baby and toddler-friendly properties...

Seahorses (sleeps four plus cot) is a modern coastal retreat on Cornwall’s north coast which boasts many handy features including a baby monitor and steam bottle cleaner.

The Old School Gables (sleeps four plus cot) is a beautifully restored old school in the village of Drimpton in Dorset.

Briar Cottage (sleeps six plus cot) nestles in a peaceful village near to the market town of Bridport in Dorset.
