Our aim was to have had a few little holidays away by now with both children but life with two isn’t as simple as it seems. Whereas with Izzy we went abroad twice in her first year and
holidayed in the UK a few times too this time we still haven’t even applied for Chloe’s passport. There always seems to be something getting in our way of booking a holiday, from me being in hospital to them both getting chicken pox and more to the point the question of how on earth are we going to pack everything we need for a toddler and a baby?! And also fit clothes for us grown ups?
Well now we have finally got out first short holiday booked for May and we are so excited. I’m excited because it means a weekend away from the mundane household tasks and just concentrating on the important things, like my family and ice cream maybe even a glass of wine?
I’m also excited because we are going to a resort which is tailored to families like us. We won’t have to load the car up with prams,high chairs and travel cots because they provide them – for free!
We won’t need to take a million toys to keep them entertained
because there are kids clubs and swimming pools and the beach! We don’t even need our passports because it’s in the UK.
Where are we going?
The Sands Resort in Cornwall.
I can honestly say we have been gazing longingly at their website for quite some time so to be going there in just a few weeks is amazing.
We will be staying in a family suite overlooking the sea
which benefits from separate child sleeping areas which means we can relax and watch TV whilst the little ones sleep. There is a fridge in every room for storing liquids as well as a kettle, DVD players and even a baby listening service.
There are flexible meal times depending on when you would like to eat and even separate zones for family dining, quiet dining and couples dining – so no more feeling guilty when your
baby cries or your toddler has a tantrum. You can eat with your
children or without (using the baby listening service).
And the food looks a little bit good..
There are kids clubs galore from nippers 0-1,pirates 2-3 and the adventure club for aged 4-7. There is also the o-zone club for older children aged 8-12. There are lots of activities available for the children to enjoy whilst there and
each session can be booked when you arrive.
Whilst the little ones are at kids club you can treat yourself in the spa or enjoy a nice meal in peace! Wow.
It’s right on Watergate bay so I imagine we will spend a lot of time on the beach but swimming will definitely still be in the hotel pool.
British sea is too cold for me but isn’t it beautiful?
There is a lot more I could tell you about this hotel but that would kinda spoil my review so you can lust over the website and I will tell you ALL about it when we return.
*We will be staying at the hotel for free for the purpose of this review.
