Cornwall Revealed As Family Friendly Holiday Capital Of The UK

Anyway, it's good news for people planning to go away this Easter. The AA has done a survey revealing the UK counties with most family friendly B&Bs. They are (•drumroll•)

Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly come out top as the number one destination for family holidays, with 72 AA Registered B&Bs offering additional services and facilities to suit families with children of all ages including children’s menus (33%), baby-sitting services (6%), safe play areas (4%) and children’s entertainment (1%).

The Cottage, Hope Cove, Devon

Somerset comes in third, with 67 B&Bs offering family friendly extras, while North Yorkshire is fourth with 65, and Cumbria is fifth with 47, over half of which offer children’s menus.
In total, 1,226 B&Bs registered with the AA are family friendly, taking bookings from families with children of any age, and 1,215 of these offer something extra to make families’ lives easier.
