In a glorious location overlooking Chesil Beach on the Dorset coast, this is a great spot for relaxed UK family breaks and holidays. Some guests find the building and facilities a bit tired, but this has the benefit of meaning kids can run freely and treat the place like home (!) without your having to worry that other guests or staff will complain. Also, you needn’t worry about packing the car up with baby/kids' equipment and toys – Moonfleet Manor has it all, including a vast play barn with areas for different age groups. And you can also bring your furry friends, as Moonfleet is a dog-friendly hotel.

Mealtimes are flexible to suit children of all ages, and the menus include lots of kids' favourites. When you want a Sunday lie-in, the breakfast club will take care of the children for a couple of hours, while the childcare service, operated in the on-site OFSTED-registered crèche/kids' club, welcomes each child for two free hours a day, so you can grab some 'me' time in the spa, in the cosy lounge areas or in the lovely grounds.
