Starting a family is a dream come true for many couples, and they welcome the changes that come with the new territory of family life. Often this includes rearranging the finances to provide for your new bundle of joy, but this need not mean you have to miss out on a much needed holiday. The burgeoning field of holiday lets offers a very cost effective way of giving everyone a change from routine. A family room in a hotel might not seem very peaceful when you are crammed into one small space, especially with different bedtimes for all. But when you find flats for rent London or cottage there is room for everyone – often at the same cost as that hotel you used to book as a couple.

Spend only a matter of minutes online and you can find a wealth of flats for rent in London on offer, providing as much space as you need. You may give up on room service, but what you gain is a beautiful property with privacy and freedom from your to-do list. You have only to relax with your family knowing that the property is cared for by someone else. No DIY jobs screaming for your attention, no big cleaning work. Maybe dad can play with the kids while mum has that long soak in the tub, or mum can treat the kids to some afternoon baking while dad has that nap he’s always wanted. And of course, mum and dad can curl up together to watch that movie they’ve been putting off, once the little ones are fast asleep.

This is all even before you step outside your apartment to explore your new neighbourhood. It might be a stunning countryside location, with cliff walks and ice cream on the beach, or an exciting city bursting to be discovered. With endless activities available for children of all ages (including big ones…) you can plan days out around relaxing in your stress free home from home.

Whether remote or inner city, your holiday let property will provide a stable, spacious base for you and your family. The benefits of a change from routine are many and valuable. Rediscover your family in a new and relaxed setting, and why not make it a real event and invite the grandparents too???
