With tickets to local attractions as well as the games room and play areas in the hotel, we’ve got it all covered!”

Keep the younger kids happy with Family Fun in Leicestershire for just £99 for one night including breakfast, or upgrade to 4 nights for an extra £150 and get yourself a family break for just £15.50 per person per night!
