Luxury yurt accommodation in Lanzarote, Canary Islands
It is a wonderful place for a family vacation with small children and a great place to recharge your batteries. (more)Alison Brookes Day
Fabulously relaxing, beautiful island, relaxed yet very responsive hosts. A great experience...Great for kids with donkey rides, missions to collect eggs every day, and to hang out with other kids on the communal trampoline, pirate boat and playground. (more)Michelle Levene
Most memorable were the rural location with an opportunity to see the landscape and vegetation. The space, both our private area around our yurt and outside where the kids were free to play on the trampoline and meet the chickens and donkey. The smallness of the resort and the uncrowded beach. The morning bike ride into the village for bread. (more)Roos Eisma

The thing that worried me most about becoming a dad (bulging nappies aside), was the thought of kissing those exotic long-haul vacations goodbye in favour of a nice day out at the local country park and visiting the grandparents – “yours or mine this weekend?”. Struck by this worrying realisation that a life of day-trips and comfortable furry footwear awaited, I dragged my wife, who had done all her kicking and screaming for the year, and our two-month-old son Benjamin (who hadn’t), on a two-month, twenty thousand mile round-trip to Australia. If Simon's article has whet your appetite for traveling with small children, take a look at the rest of his 'baby on board' baby friendly vacations article.
