North Yorkshire is a diverse holiday destination, with plenty to offer travellers of all persuasions. With its blend of stunning countryside and pristine coastline, it's a particular hit with families. There are also plenty of fun attractions to check out, from the exciting Flamingo Land Theme Park and Zoo to Clifford's Tower in the centre of York. There's no shortage of family-friendly hotels in York, either.
Facilities for the Youngsters
Kids are always on the lookout for things to do. You may have a jam-packed schedule during the day, but that won't stop them getting restless when you're back at the hotel. The best family-friendly hotels in North Yorkshire offer a range of facilities designed to entertain kids and - crucially - to help wear them out.
The Majestic Hotel in Harrogate has plenty of facilities to keep the youngsters entertained. The indoor swimming pool is hugely popular throughout the year. There's also a tennis court, which is great for wearing the kids out and ensuring everyone gets a good night's sleep.
Some family-friendly hotels can supply extra beds for families. Rollaway beds are a great way to ensure that the whole family can stay together. Being forced to book extra rooms is not only expensive, but it lacks the intimacy which is key to a memorable family holiday.
The Meltham Guesthouse in Scarborough is happy to provide extra beds for kids. The intimate B&Bs is also just metres away from Peasholm Park and the beach, making it great for families.
Leave the Kids in Safe Hands
Holidays with kids can be special times, particularly in their early years. Any parent will know, though, that they can also be exhausting. From time to time, parents would be forgiven for seeking a little time to themselves. With hotels that offer childcare and babysitting services, this is a very real possibility.
The Hedley House Hotel in York offers childcare services, giving mum and dad a much needed break every now and again. The hotel's central location means you can stroll into the city centre to enjoy a romantic and peaceful meal in one of York's many exquisite restaurants.
