Active single parents

Amanda's verdict
Family holidays are precious, hard-earned and over all too quickly. Getting them right is especially important for single parents, when time is at a premium. Single With Kids is a brilliantly simple concept - the holidays are in small friendly groups, exclusively for single parents, and range from cheap camping breaks and party weekends to five-star beach resorts.

Single with Kids says

We provide single parents travelling with their children an exciting holiday experience – real-life adventures that will appeal to both single dads, single mums – and their children.

  • UK & the Med options
  • glamping & camping
  • winter activities

Holidays post-divorce or bereavement can be a lonely experience, with single parents often finding themselves sitting alone while the children play. Our holidays ensure company not only for the children, but for the adults too, with events arranged to build friendships and make memories.

Our breaks range from cheap camping weekends – within most families’ budgets, they offer a taste of the ‘Enid Blyton’ adventures many of us enjoyed as kids – to longer holidays abroad.

Our overseas holidays range from the ever popular ‘bucket and spade’ resorts in Majorca (where our groups enjoy varied itineraries including beach parties, aqua parks and cave visits) through to themed weeks such as the Lapland Adventure Holiday at Christmas with activities such as dog-sledding, ice fishing and reindeer sleigh rides.

Closer to home, our August holiday in Pembroke, on the stunning Welsh coast, is an annual favourite, with fabulous group accommodation within walking distance of Barafundle and Broadhaven beaches plus a host of child-friendly attractions.

Our camping holidays, for children of all ages, run throughout spring and summer, culminating in the End of Summer Campfest at Wicksteed Park, where there’s the added attraction of a mini theme park for the children.

There are glamping breaks in tipis and wigwams too for those who prefer a little more luxury.

From toasting marshmallows around the campfire with new friends to skiing holidays and activity breaks, we take care of every detail.
