Calcot Manor, The Cotswolds

This beautifully restored farming hamlet is one of the finest proofs that a relaxing UK break is possible with small children in tow, as it is equipped with an arsenal of facilities designed to delight parents and distract children. Parents can zone out in the outdoor pool after a Guinot facial, while toddlers can zoom around the Ofsted-registered Playzone crèche; and older children can hone their Wii skills in the games-packed Mez room. Calcot’s 220 acres offer plenty of ways to burn off the pub lunches at its Gumstool Inn with cycling trails (bikes with child seats are available free), tennis courts and, in summer, a maize maze. Thoughtfully designed family suites – complete with teddy- and toy-dotted children’s bedrooms – are housed in a converted barn, so the only sound that reception will hear from your children is via the baby-listening service… 

Near Tetbury, Gloucestershire GL8 8YJ. Tel: 01666 890391. Prices from £240 per person, including breakfast. Half board from £300. Children staying in parents’ rooms costs £30 a night.
