The Child-Friendly Mansion Hotel In Worcester

The Elms, Worcester is the ideal place to go when you want your children to make new play friends while you relax

Although most babies couldn’t care less whether they’re holidaying with other children, as your tot gets older, you may find he craves the company of others. All well and good if he’s got a sibling, but if you’re enjoying the relative peace of having just one child, heading on holiday somewhere he can find a playmate makes sense.

And let’s not forget the considerable benefits to you, if your offspring is happy playing with his new best friend every morning – bring on the ‘me’ time.

Grand Relaxation

With this in mind, the best thing about staying at The Elms – one of eight hotels in the Luxury Family Hotels group – is its open layout, sociable spaces and general house party vibe. It feels less like a hotel, more like an enormous family home, somehow managing to be grand, but also relaxed and low key.

Set in an elegant Queen Anne mansion in Worcestershire, with 10 acres of grounds, it has a large entrance hall and lots of reception rooms with huge sofas where families can hang out during the day.

Making Friends Is Easy

Outside, there’s lots of play areas, plus organised games in the gardens at the back – think croquet, football and hide-and-seek. There’s a professional and friendly (not to mention free) crèche, plus The Den caters for kids from three months to eight years. Honestly, it’s hard not to make friends here.

Give it a few days and we guarantee your child will be swapping notes about the outdoor fairy trail and how to win at table football.
Book it! Prices start at £150 per night for a double room with space for a cot, and £280 for two connecting rooms, including breakfast.
