Baby and Family-friendly Holiday Home

Goose Nest is a family friendly holiday home in the Cotswolds which has been equipped with all the things you need when you go away to make it a home from home for you and your family.  Your baby, toddler and older children's comfort and enjoyment  on holiday are important to us - if they are happy their parents are usually happy!  


In the specially decorated small, child's bedroom is a low child's bunkbed, a selection of children's toys, baby monitor with night light.  Two travel cots, each with an additional breathable mattress is also provided free of charge.  There are stair gates; and a baby and toddler carrier available.   The child's bedroom will fit a travel cot as well as the bed but the layout of the room means it won't easily fit a child's inflatable bed instead of a travel cot.  The enclosed, glass-fronted balcony makes the living area of the house safe for todllers and young children.


In the kitchen, there are two highs chair, steriliser,bottle warmer and a full range of children's cutlery and plates and a toddler table and chairs.  If you are making your baby's food, we have provided a hand blender to help with pureeing.  


For older children there is a Nintendo Game Cube and a selection of games, a DVD player with a range of DVD suitable for children of all ages.  For the more traditional amongst us, a wide range of board games for those long summer evenings.
