Scroll down for our hand-picked recommendations for self-catering Hoseasons Family Holidays.  

After 70 years in the business, Hoseasons Family Holidays have come up trumps when it comes to providing the perfect holiday. Realising that not every family fits the same peg they have an eclectic range of self-catering properties so you can easily find something that suits your family no matter how diverse your (or their) wish list is. 

It can be hard to tear kids away from their screens these days but these holidays will lure them back into the great outdoors. Open their eyes up to sleepy English or European backwaters and give your kids a go on the tiller with a canal boat holiday – they’ll love the thought of being in charge of a boat and before you panic at the thought of the ensuing chaos that could unfold, rest assured that you’re all given expert instruction on how to operate the locks before you’re let loose. 

Accommodation is compact but comfortable with narrow boats typically sleeping 4 – 6 people. If you prefer something even more sedate than a narrow boat and still want to enjoy life on the water you could opt for a houseboat instead. These are luxuriously furnished and, of course, stationary, so you sit still and watch the world pass you by from the comfort of a deck chair.

Forest lodges are an option, set in idyllic surroundings where there’ll be nothing to hear but the wind in the trees. Your kids can roam free building dens and spotting the wildlife and you can put your feet up on the wooden decks and relax. Lots of the sites have on-site facilities; some, incongruously, even have dry ski-slopes for your kids to get a bit of practice in before your next holiday in the snow. 

Holiday parks pack a punch when it comes to ensuring there’s plenty for the kids to do; you’ll find tennis courts, swimming pools, hot tubs, shops for stocking up the fridge and age-appropriate entertainment laid on to keep everyone smiling.
