Family short breaks (family on beach, Southend-on-Sea, Essex)Family short breaks (family on beach, Southend-on-Sea, Essex)

From action-packed weekends of adrenalin sports to lazing in the lap of luxury at country house hotels, from mucking in on working farms to exploring some of the world's most exciting cities, short breaks and weekends away are are great way of staying sane and entertaining the kids in-between longer holidays and of taking a well-earned break from routine.

With this in mind, we’ve brought together our favourite properties and trips when it comes to short breaks for families with children of all ages, whether you want to see the sights of London, Rome, Paris or other cultural hotspots, hit the beaches, go wild in the country or even take a mini-cruise to the Continent. Of course, the accommodation options we’ve listed can also be great locations for longer holidays but all lend themselves well to fantastic and memorable short breaks with kids.
