It’s all the more reason to leave the cooking to someone else so that you can make the most of the time together.

When choosing family friendly hotels for Christmas, we looked for the destinations that really brought the festive season to life to children as well as parents. Naturally, that means wonderful food, but also mesmerising locations, plenty for children to see and do, space to get outside and the opportunity to enjoy a convivial environment but also time for yourself as a family as well. So from spa treatments to treehouse suites, swimming pools to sumptuous dinners, here are our favourite family friendly hotels for Christmas.

From a stylish, four-star coaching inn in the Cotswolds dating back to the 1300s to an exquisite restaurant with rooms in Devon, surrounded by exceptionally beautiful countryside that’s just waiting for you to get outside in your wellies and explore. Head to one of the UK’s finest country house hotels, surrounded by manicured gardens to a five-star hotel and spa in Hampshire, surrounded by the New Forest and complete with family suites, kids cookery classes and local attractions ranging from Marwell Zoo to pony trekking.
