Cambridge is a brilliant destination for families with children of all ages and interests. Its stunning architecture, fascinating history and renowned eateries are certain to keep the adults busy.

While kids will be thoroughly entertained by its museums, science centres, parks, and nature reserves. Even rainy days have a lot to offer families with children when staying in Cambridge. Cambridge is home to the best family walks too.

Whatever the weather, there’s a lot for families to love in Cambridge. But why exactly should your family choose to stay in a serviced apartment on your upcoming break?

Space for all the family

On average, serviced apartments offer 30% more space than a hotel room. This space is also split across multiple rooms to give everyone the scope they need to truly enjoy their stay. The extra space and separate living area will come in handy if you’re a family with young children.

Your young child’s early bedtime doesn’t mean an early night for you in a serviced apartment. Parents can make use of the living and kitchen area without disturbing their little ones to enjoy the apartment their way.

Stay up late, chat, and watch TV into the night, whilst sticking to a routine similar to the one you rely on at home to keep your children settled.

Complete freedom and flexibility

The extra space doesn’t just come in handy at bedtime. By staying in a serviced apartment you have the freedom and flexibility to live like you would at home. You and your children will have the space to roam as freely as you like.

We understand that packing light, even for a city break, just isn’t possible as a family. With serviced living, you don’t have to worry about packing too much.

There’s plenty of storage space so bring all you need to feel comfortable. There’s also enough room to bring a few toys to keep your children entertained during every stage of your trip.

Easy to prepare for the day ahead

The kitchen and laundry facilities of a serviced apartment certainly come in handy when travelling with children. Dirty clothes can be given a quick zap in the washing machine to leave you with very little washing to do when you arrive back home.

Preparing for the day ahead is also easier thanks to our serviced apartments’ kitchen facilities. You can prepare packed lunches and snacks in advance to save money throughout your city break and keep your children satisfied.

In addition to this, the kitchen facilities and extra space mean you can indulge in a night in (or two) during your trip.

Home-cooked meals can be prepared and enjoyed in a serviced apartment. It’s the perfect way to unwind after a long day of sightseeing.

The best location to live like locals

All our Cambridge based serviced apartments are centrally located. As a result, you’ll spend less on transport during your stay and be ideally located to enjoy all that life has to offer. FlipFlop Globetrotters explains why slowing down and enjoying life as the locals would is important on a family trip:

“City tripping as a couple was mostly about seeing as much of the city as possible. Now that we travel with our son, I find that I really enjoy slowing down and soaking up the local culture. When travelling with a child, it’s much easier to meet and talk to locals! And even a simple trip to a supermarket can be fun! I’ve never seen so many types of pasta in my life as when we were in Milan. We also try a lot more local eateries in the area where we’re staying and see more of the neighbourhood.”
