Ideas for half term breaks
With summer over, the kids heading back to school and life going back into a routine, you might be getting itchy feet for a family holiday over half term. Most schools have a break at the end of October, and we've looked into a few ideas for half term breaks.
Center Parcs is a great option for a short holiday. There are four Center Parcs in the UK: Whinfell Forest, Cumbria; Sherwood Forest, Nottinghamshire; Elveden Forest, Suffolk and Longleat Forest, Wiltshire.
There is plenty on offer at Center Parcs for adults, kids and big kids. There's a large range of activities for everyone, including indoor and outdoor sports, like paintballing, horse riding, quad biking, treasure trails, water sports and much more. Whether you want a fun filled, activity packed holiday or a relaxed break full of nature and walks, Center Parcs could be a great option.
If you are looking for half term breaks abroad, lastminute.com is a great place to find cheap deals away for you and the kids. They have flight and hotel packages available in places like the Algarve, Egypt, Malta, Turkey and Cyprus - some at very good prices.
However when comparing prices it's important to keep in mind that most of them don’t include baggage, transfers, insurance and other extras (for four people you can expect to pay around £140 on baggage). They also offer trips within the UK, deals on hotels-only, deals on flights-only, and many tours and extras, so you're bound to find a great half term break there.
It's normal to get itchy feet in the lead up to half term, especially after returning to a routine following the summer. And the best way to treat itchy feet is by going on holiday!
There are plenty of options for half term breaks available, so whether you have young children or grown up children, you can give them something to look forward to and give yourself a break at the same time.
