I think it's safe to say that, as a child, almost everyone fantasised about being royalty, whether you were the princess that dreamt about long dresses and your own tower, or the brave young prince slaying dragons to defend his castle. Well, why not give your child the chance to experience this (minus the dragons!)?

Bovey Castle

Located in Dartmoor National Park, Bovey Castle offers one of the best family experiences for all ages. From Lego Room Service to the Hawk Walk with the Falconry Team, there is something to keep all children entertained. A family stay at Bovey Castle isn't just about the children...so why not enjoy some time to yourself in the Spa or the on-site Golf Course while the castle's Bovey Rangers look after your little ones with a range of fun outdoor activities?

Culzean Castle

Culzean Castle is well known for its incredible cliff-top location on the Ayrshire coast. The castle is set in its own vast estate and offers up to six bedrooms, many of which can take extra beds for families. On the estate itself, the castle has its own themed adventure playground,  a museum for you to explore, plus a huge deer park filled with deer, llamas and Highland cows! Near to the castle, there are many options such as the Heads of Ayr Farm plus lots of great activities down on the seafront in Ayr.

Ashford Castle

Ashford Castle is a real stand-out option if you are visiting Ireland with your family. This 5-star castle welcomes families of all ages and the whole estate has a range of activities to suit everyone's interests. From boat trips, horse riding, fishing or even relaxing with a movie in the on-site cinema, the options are endless! The castle also has a range of dining options, from formal dining in the George V dining room to more relaxed options in the Cullen's at the Cottage restaurant so again, children of all ages can be catered for.
