Baby Friendly Boltholes
Should having kids in tow mean you need to sacrifice your taste for your toddlers? Or go cold turkey on luxury travel? “Absolutely not!” Says new mum and former travel PR Sian Williams, founder of an online directory of family friendly holidays for boutique-hotel junkies. www.BabyFriendlyBoltholes.co.uk features more than 200 finds from funky farm-stays in the West Country to chic chateaux in the Dordogne, and every property is handpicked as much for its interior design as its baby-friendly facilities.

If you love the beach, if you crave the perfect beach lifestyle, Beach Retreats is the holiday you’ve been waiting for.
