School holiday planner
The biggest school holiday planner questions – answered
If you are a parent or guardian of school-aged children, you’ll know that school holiday breaks will be a punctuation point in your annual calendar, marking (and controlling) how the year flows on either side of the school holiday terms.
Where to go and what school holiday activities are available are likely to be the two most pressing questions for families planning their school holidays. The Cotswolds is perfectly suited to a school holiday for Easter, a school holiday for summer, a school holiday for Christmas and all the half terms in between. The stunning scenery, gorgeous villages, nationally rated restaurants, pubs and cafes, and endless year-round activities for all ages makes the Cotswolds the ideal candidate for your school holiday destination.
The range of activities for children of every school age, and big kids too, is endless. In the spring, why not reconnect your children with nature at a Fat Squirrel Outdoor campfire experience? With the improving weather have a fabulous summer adventure at phantasmagorical Giffords Circus and as the days get shorter head to the UK’s biggest tropical butterfly farm near Stratford-upon-Avon or Slimbridge Wetland Centre to watch the spectacular arrival of migrating geese and swans.
