Imagine Mary Poppins collecting the children on Sunday morning, leaving you to lie in with your partner, the papers and a cup of tea. While we encourage you to spend quality time as a family, our nannies and complimentary childcare facilities ensure that parents can take time out to relax too.
Our country house hotels are stylish and sumptuous, yet we welcome the thunder of little feet – and paws too. Babies and young children will love our Ofsted-registered crèches, with two free hours of childcare on each day of your stay, while older children can make friends in the games room, try outdoor activities, or watch Blockbusters in the cinema room.
Being experts in luxury family breaks, we put family time at the core of your holiday: Make a splash with the kids in the pool, enjoy leisurely family meals, and explore our grand estates and their surroundings. But rest assured there’s plenty of scope for grown-up time too. We offer a complimentary crèche and baby-listening service (or babysitter, if you’d prefer), so you can relax under the spell of a spa treatment, don glad rags for a candlelit dinner, or simply take a walk or some time to yourself.
Our staff will immediately make you feel at home, and are always on hand to give you an insider’s guide to the local area. And to make packing easy, we’ll be in touch to ensure your room is kitted out with everything you need, from cots and sterilsers to toddler steps and bed guards.
Although Thornbury Castle does not feature the family facilities you will find at the other Luxury Family Hotels, we welcome children aged from eight years upwards who will be wide eyed at the chance to stay in a real life castle!
