Please can I request that if at all possible you book online with our partners? This provides me with a small commission that allows me to continue running Recommended Family Holidays & providing you with the best service I possibly can - many thanks! If contacting me directly, please bear in mind there may be a small delay, sorry but I am disabled & not too well at the moment but I will get back to you as soon as I am able.
If you are looking for a highly recommended self catering holiday cottage, why not have a look at our Top 25 Family Friendly Places to Stay - these are the most highly recommended family friendly self-catering cottages across our whole website.
The owners of the holiday accommodation we feature welcome families and many of these family friendly holiday cottages or gites have a number of facilities to make your holiday more enjoyable such as a pool, kids club, babysitting service or in-house catering service. We also encourage you to make your own family holiday recommendations.

Finally, in recognition of the new EU ePrivacy Directive that has just come into force - I use Google Analytics & Statcounter to monitor visitor numbers to the website so I know what works and what doesn't! Secondly, I use some affiliates - these are companies that pay me a small commission (typcially 2-4% of any booking) for directing my visitors to their website. The reason I do this is that this small income helps me in providing an income to help the continuing running and development of Recommended Family Holidays - rest assured, it is certainly not part of my core business model! Such affiliates include Hoseasons, Keycamp and Premier Holidays plus the advertisers you see in the bottom left hand side of the page. They use "cookies" (a small piece of code) so that if you make a booking within say, 30 days, I receive the small commission. I just wanted to let you all know how it works - without them, I can't run Recommended Family Holidays!
