As single parents, we recognise life doesn’t stop after divorce or bereavement, it just changes shape. At Single With Kids, we concentrate on bringing the fun back and minimising stress, whether you’re looking for a day out, weekend away or a holiday; new friends or even looking to start a new relationship.
Holidays for Single Parents
Single With Kids specialise in providing a wide variety of great value breaks and holidays for single parents. The thing that sets us apart from a “normal” family holiday is the community that can be found in single parent groups; children instantly have friends on their holiday (sometimes as soon as departures lounge – look out for our bright green Single With Kids bags) and our single parents immediately have like-minded adults to relax, converse and even party with.
Having withdrawal symptoms from the great outdoors? Want to surprise the kids with a weekend steeped in nature and exploration?
The longest running of all our single parent holidays, and Single With Kids roots – camping and glamping! Our single parents seem to love the choice of destinations, facilities and budgets. No-one should have to miss out on a fab weekend away with the kids, thats why our camping UK holidays 2014, such as the Severn Valley Camp, start from just £40 for up to FOUR people!
Not the camping type but still want to get away for a much deserved break?
We have the biggest choice of UK breaks for single parents – it’s not all tents and mud! Our Cornwall Lodges holiday sees our single parent families staying in quaint little cottages with the resort offering lots of facilities, whether you want to relax in the Indigo Spa or have a dabble in golf and tennis the kids will be more than happy making new friends in the lively Kid’s Club and Pirate Pete’s soft play centre!
Fancy enjoying some sun sea and sand with your little ones? An overseas holiday might be for you.
Our overseas holidays have proved very popular with our single parents, meaning we can offer an even BIGGER range of destinations. Spending all year in the UK can leave a thirst for some proper sunshine, but many single parents don’t consider an overseas holiday attainable. Whether it’s the added pressure of travelling alone with children or dreading sitting alone while the kids toddle off and play with new found friends. Single With Kids holidays offer single parents the chance to actually relax! Relaxing on holiday with your children, who would have thought? The chilled out group environment allows for single mums and dads to dip in and out of organised activities, meaning the holidays really are tailored to you. You might like to read that book you’ve been dying to get round to while the kids race up and down water slides on our Cyprus holiday. Or why not indulge in adventures for the whole family on a ski holiday in Bulgaria – snowy landscapes and crisp sunshine will make it a beautiful, memorable trip.

The friendly community you enter into when booking with Single With Kids is often overlooked on first thought. We hear of the apprehension lone parents face when debating whether to book their first holiday with us. At Single With Kids, we could tell you over and over again how much you’ll enjoy our holidays… but wouldn’t it make more sense for people who have bitten the bullet and decided to join the SWK ranks to tell you how much they enjoyed it? We thought so too:
Isabelle, age 9 (Turkey Hisaronu)
“I like going on holiday with Single With Kids because you get to meet people who are just like you and you realise that you are not the only one whose parents are divorced.”
Amie with Lucie, age 2 (Pembroke)
“I never imagined that I would enjoy a single parent holiday, and to be honest I nearly cancelled it so many times, but now I am so so glad that I didn’t! It was 100 times better than I ever imagined it would be and we both enjoyed every moment of it!
I have never been on a holiday before that has been so jam packed full of fun, laughter, friendship and good times! The other parents there were just such lovely people and it was an absolute pleasure to be able to spend every evening out in the fresh air with a nice bottle of wine, good company, good conversation and lots of laughs! I was also blown away by how lovely all the children were and how much they all looked out for each other and enjoyed playing together.”
Simon with Sam, age 12 and Hannah, age 10 (Majorca)
“This was one of the best holidays I have ever been on. The management and everything about it was first class. I only wished I had found SWK when you first started. Was going to say going away with SWK has been life changing but do not want you to think I’m going too much over the top – but it has!”
Jane with Alice, age 7 and Sophie, age 5 (Center Parcs)
“The highlight of the holiday for me was when the two kind mums we were sharing with kindly took my two daughters down a water slide and I actually managed to swim by myself – bliss!”
Linda with Bethany, age 16, Phoebe, age 13 and Liberty, age 6 (over 20 SWK Holidays!)
“We have had the most amazing two years with SWK and been on about 20 holidays. My girls absolutely love their trips away so they’re not missing out on holidays. The SWK trips are so fantastic that the girls will be talking about them nostalgically as adults.”
Joshua, age 10 (Morocco)
“The general spirit of this holiday felt like we were all a big family, sticking together and having a blast.”
