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.

  • no single supplements
  • organised activities
  • school holiday departures

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 in the UK – within most families’ budgets – to longer holidays abroad.

Our glamping breaks in tipis and wigwams are the perfect choice for mums or dads or who want to holiday in the UK with a little luxury.

Check out our five-night Wigwam holidays in Northumberland – home to stunning beaches, historic castles and one of the Harry Potter film locations. Suitable for all ages, including teenagers, you’ll stay on a working organic farm in one of our spacious (and heated) wooden wigwams. They sleep up to five in comfort and on-site facilities include a barbecue, fire pit and spotless shower and loo facilities. We typically have 12 or more families on these holidays – they are self-catering but we usually end up doing some activities together. Fish and chips in nearby Seahouses is a favourite.

Head to Herefordshire for our tipi holidays. Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, it’s all about the great outdoors from nature rambles to toasting marshmallows around the fire with new-found friends. There’s a Bake House on site so you and your children can cook your own bread or pizzas if you wish.
