Camping holidays with babies & toddlers


Going on holiday now you’ve got a baby or toddler to consider might have changed your priorities but it should not put you off getting away for some much needed relaxation and family fun.

The thought of camping with babies or finding a toddler friendly holiday can be a daunting one for many reasons. We've been organising family camping holidays for over 50 years. So while we can’t promise to do anything about teething or tantrums, we can make your family holiday as relaxing possible, with flexible accommodation choices, toddler friendly campsites and baby & toddler equipment. Leaving the only decision you need to make being which of our family friendly campsites to choose!

Holidays with toddlers

Holidays with toddlers

Our campsites have a fantastic variety of facilities and activities to ensure the whole family is catered for, especially active little toddlers. We know how full of energy they can be, so to ensure they sleep well at night and you get some time to relax, we’ve created lots of activities to get them involved in:

Toddler pools - many of our campsites have children's swimming pools separate from the bigger pools, the perfect depth for splashing around.
Play parks/play areas - we've created exciting, colourful, climbing areas that are great to burn off some energy.
Children’s clubs and arts and crafts - most of our sites offer various clubs or activities to keep your toddlers busy and help enrich their holiday.

With so much fun to be had, just make sure you capture every moment of the fun with good photos! Here's a few tips on how to take great family photos on your holiday.

Flexible accommodation choices

With a wide range of accommodation choices available, camping with babies and toddlers has never been easier. Whether you want a small space so that you can keep an eye on the little ones, or larger multi-bedroomed accommodation, where everyone gets their own space, we have options to fit all requirements:

Outdoor space - all our emplacements have room outside for the little ones to play.

Self-catering accommodation - organise your day around your baby's routine and not a resort's.

Choice of 2, 3 or 4 bedrooms - room for everyone to get a good night's sleep.

Whichever accommodation you choose, from a mobile home or a canvas tent, we make sure it's all ready for your arrival, all you have to do is get there, unpack and relax. We’ve converted many first time ‘camping with babies families, as blogger Mummy Barrow will tell you.

It’s also worth noting that most of our sites have child friendly restaurants or supermarkets onsite. We know eating out every night can be exhausting, so we like to ensure all options are catered for on our campsites.

Baby and toddler equipment

Don’t let the thought of lugging around baby and toddler equipment ruin your holiday plans. We provide baby and toddler equipment, making travelling with young ones even easier. Our aim is to make our locations the best holidays for babies and parents. We can supply:

Travel cots and highchairs on all campsites with a Canvas Holidays courier.

These items are subject to availability and must be reserved at time of booking. Charges apply.

Family days out

Family days out

Although you might spend some of your days soaking up the sun by the pool, we’ve got a range of activities to keep the whole family entertained, especially those full of beans toddlers.

Activities specifically for under 4s
