Family friendly (children aged 5-15)

Welcome to Greentraveller's section on Family Friendly accommodation, for children and teenagers aged 5-15.

All of the places we feature have satisfied us that the owners are genuinely doing their bit to reduce their impact on the environment, see: How to tell if a hotel is green

The efforts of the owners of the places featured on greentraveller go much further than simply asking guests to put towels out for washing; many owners have invested in long-term energy saving technologies or developed their own ingenious methods for saving energy and water and dealing with waste in an environmentally friendly way.
