Cottages with a zoo nearby

Book a cottage with family oriented amenities and a zoo nearby to give the children a good day out

cottages near a zooFamilies know that renting somewhere suitable and within their budget for the annual summer holiday is just the beginning of their planning. People with children want the occasional day out during their holiday and a cottage with a zoo nearby provides one such excursion that will keep the children happy.

One thing about zoos is that they all tend to be unique in design and ethos. Some like Whipsnade zoo in Bedfordshire focus on ensuring that animals have extra large enclosures for their well-being, Colchester Zoo has built a range of fun activities around the experience and provide a softplay centre, shows and numerous play parks. London Zoo offers an educational angle.

Happily, there are zoos dotted about, all over the UK and Ireland so that there are lots of possible places to go for a family self-catering break.

Staying in a holiday home near a zoo means that living costs are kept to the minimum, which means more money available for going out, for ice creams and treats.

Other factors to look out for when finding a holiday cottage near a zoo are:

  • Try to obtain a cottage with parking facilities if it is a built-up area. That will save time and money.
  • A cottage with a garden gives the children somewhere to play without mum and dad constantly worrying about them. It is even better if the cottage is provided with toys, including outdoor play toys or a sand pit.

Self-catering breaks with wildlife for the children to see

Safari parks are another way to spot dangerous animals from the safety of one’s own car. They’re a little like zoos with extensive grounds where animals can roam relatively freely. They will have restaurants on-site and adventure playgrounds for young children.

There is a range of established wildlife parks around the UK:

Knowsley Safari Park near Liverpool
West Midland Safari Park south west of Birmingham
Woburn Safari Park north of Luton
Shepreth Wildlife Park near Cambridge
Paradise Wildlife Park
Yorkshire Wildlife Park near Doncaster
Lake District Wildlife Park in Keswick

Galloway Wildlife Conservation park
Blair Drummond Safari and Adventure Park
Black Isle Wildlife Park

Cottages with a pets corner

cottages near an animal parkMost children are interested in animals so it’s a boon to have somewhere to stay near a zoo, pet’s corner or a wildlife park. There are certain self-catering holiday owners who are aware of this and aim to give their guests and their children a good experience.

One thing about small pets corners is that children will be able to stroke the animals and perhaps handle them. Think of the lovely memories your children will have from this holiday.
