*During Bank Holiday weekends this break costs an additional £10.

Selected hotels can accommodate 3 children from an additional £27.50 (and £5 for each additional night booked), simply add the total number of children in your party (aged 3-16 years) to the booking form and your short break cost will be calculated. Additional nights can be bought at the time of making your booking for £75 including breakfast (£80 during Bank Holidays). Extra children under 3 years are free so you don't need to include these members of your family in your booking. However, please make a note on your booking form that you will be bringing an extra child under 3 years to alert the hotel.
