UK destinations that feel like a holiday abroad

Last updated 5th June 2017

If you don’t want to travel too far with your small children, these UK destinations will make you feel, as if you are in a country far away.

What is a good place to go to, if you don’t want to travel too far with your small children, yet want to give them a feeling of a trip abroad?

You can’t beat a holiday by the seaside and the Isle of Wight is the perfect destination for toddlers and a great place for parents to reminisce about their childhood holidays. There are toddler-friendly attractions, such as the Isle of Wight Steam Railway and The Needles Park at Alum Bay, which has a chairlift down to the beach and lots of rides.

Ryde is also worth a visit to check out the fun fair, boating lake and parks, before lunching on fish and chips. There’s accommodation to suit all budgets, from camping and caravans – I’d recommend The Orchards Holiday Caravan and Camping Park in Newbridge, where tent pitches start from £18 per night and caravans from £110 a week – to B&Bs and, for something a bit more luxurious, there’s the Priory Bay, a country house hotel with luxury yurts in the garden (from £200 per night) and barns and cottages (from £735 a week).
