Romantic Breaks with Kids: a How-to Guide
Romance doesn't have to go out of the window once you've had children – you just need to be a bit smarter about finding ways to fit it in. And that goes for breaks away from home, too – just because you can't get an overnight sitter or simply can't bear to leave your offspring behind doesn't mean that you can't celebrate Valentine's Day or book yourselves a romantic weekend away at any time of year.
It's all about planning and doing your research. Finding a hotel with an OFSTED-registered crèche and a spa means you can grab some quality 'us' time knowing that your kids are being more than ably looked after and entertained. Best of all is a hotel also offering children's high teas and baby-listening (which works via the telephone system), so you can have a leisurely dinner in the restaurant without having to pay for a babysitter.
