Mr & Mrs Smith’s Family-friendly Outdoor Holidays

TravelPost Category - TravelTravel - Post Category - Inspiration & TipsInspiration & Tips

Summer is finally here, and we’re all asking ourselves: What to do to keep the kiddos entertained? Handily, the boutique-hotel experts at Smith & Family have scoured the globe for the very best family-friendly stays – here are a few of their favourites, where little guests will find plenty to keep them busy in the great outdoors…

Mr & Mrs Smith - Family Outdoor - Gleneagles, UK

Gleneagles Hotel, UK

Ready for a loch-load of Scottish luxury? Gleneagles is the place for you. The grown ups can delight in the championship golf, first-class dining and whisky-packed bar (as well as the traditionally kilt-clad doormen welcoming you in) and junior visitors won’t ever want to leave: fly-fishing, off-road driving, wildlife photography and more are all on offer for children. Adventure en famille awaits.

Smith extra: Free bike hire for the whole family for four hours each day

Mr & Mrs Smith - Family Outdoor - Emirates, Australia

Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley, Australia

Not far from Sydney, the Blue Mountains are an outdoorsy paradise for families. Child-friendly Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley is your luxurious home-from-home, on 4,000 acres of Australian wilderness. Here, wildlife safaris, mountain-biking and horse riding rule (and there’s a world-class spa and plunge pool-toting villas to keep the adults amused).

Smith extra: A gourmet Wolgan picnic hamper for families, to be enjoyed on the reserve

Mr & Mrs Smith - Family Outdoor - Anantara, Thailand

Anantara Si Kao Resort & Spa, Thailand

What’s better than a beach? Anantara Si Kao Resort & Spa’s is a winner for sun-loving parents and active children alike (and just a 90-minute drive south of Krabi). The box-ticking blend of grown-up pastimes – think stylish beach club and seductive day spa – and awesome adventures for little ‘uns (an arts-and-crafts centre, kids-only pool and the entire Andaman Sea) make for a let’s-never-go-home holiday.

Smith extra: Free access to the kids club; free WiFi; 15% off food, drinks and spa treatments

Mr & Mrs Smith - Family Outdoor - QT, Australia

QT Port Douglas, Australia

A stylish tropical tone reigns at family-friendly QT Port Douglas, where SpaQ and the delicious dining keep Mr & Mrs Smith entertained while little Smiths will be raving about the huge inflatable ducks in the lagoon pool. They won’t be limited to splashing about in the pool, either: choose from the beach, reef and rainforest to adventure further afield.

Smith extra: A bottle of bubbles, plus a late check-out at 12 noon

Mr & Mrs Smith - Family Outdoor - PUente Romano, Spain

Puente Romano Beach Resort Marbella, Spain

Andalusia’s sun-drenched coast promises plenty of outdoor fun, but Puente Romano is our favourite family-friendly spot on the strip. The laid-back village-esque layout and elegant clientele make it several cuts above the Marbella mainstream, and the multiple swimming pools, action-packed kids club, extensive gardens and golden sandy beach will keep everyone entertained.

Smith extra: Cookies and milk before bed for children, plus a bottle of Oloroso sherry for BlackSmith members, gourmet Spanish olive oil for SilverSmiths and a bottle of champagne for GoldSmiths


Smith & Family gives you the best price, guaranteed, as well as a little something extra on arrival. Book online at or by calling the expert Travel Team toll-free on 8003211098.
