8. Waterside house in Wales
Pembrokeshire has superb beaches, great sailing and walking, and better-value self-catering than the West Country. Rock House, sleeping up to six in three bedrooms, has an enclosed back garden and a front terrace overlooking the Cleddau Estuary. The sand at Broad Haven is a 20-minute drive away.

If you have your own kit, you can pitch up at one of 23 Haven Holiday
parks around the British coastline. Each site has great family facilities. Alternatively, rent a spacious caravan, a three-bedroom tent or African-style safari tent for extra fun for the kids.
10. Seaside fun
Visit one of the many seaside resorts in the UK for a family holiday to remember. Take a trip to Blackpool in England, Barry island in Wales, or Stonehaven in Scotland for the ultimate seaside experience - with donkey rides, funfairs and sandcastles galore.
