In the spirit of Father's Day and in anticipation of celebrating our dads and everything they do for us this weekend, we have narrowed down our top family break ideas. Treat yourself and the kids to a fun-filled trip to reconnect as a family and enjoy some of the best attractions the UK has to offer! 

  • Landmark Forest Adventure Park: This two-night break includes a family ticket to one of the Highlands' most popular family attractions - Landmark Forest Adventure Park, featuring forest trails, adrenaline filled rides, a butterfly house, rope courses and so much more! You'll get two nights' family accommodation at our 4* Macdonald Aviemore Hotel with full Highland breakfasts on both mornings, full use of the leisure facilities and a family ticket to Spey Valley Cinema!
  • Trip to Longleat, the UK's No. 1 Safari Park: From Penguin Island to the Adventure Castle to the Hedge Maze - one of the biggest in the world - Longleat is the ideal weekend afternoon activity for the whole family. And it's right next door to Macdonald Bath Spa Hotel, so our Family Break in Bath includes tickets for the whole family to visit the park, overnight accommodation and a full English breakfast in the morning to fuel you up for a day of animal adventure!
  • Kelpies Family Break: Book to stay at our Macdonald Inchyra Hotel & Spa to enjoy dinner, bed & breakfast as well as the full access to The Kelpies - the world's largest equine sculptures. You'll also get full use of the Leisure Club and pool, so mum and dad can relax while the kids have a blast splashing about!
  • Chester Zoo Break: Taking your kids to the zoo is such fun - think face painting, mini golf and of course learning about the over 500 different species they have! This package includes overnight accommodation at Macdonald Craxton Wood Hotel & Spa OR Macdonald New Blossoms Hotel, a full English breakfast and entrance tickets for a family visit to Chester Zoo - the UK's number one Zoo, with over 20,000 animals set in 125 acres of award-winning enclosures and gardens.

And if you can't get away for a break, why not give him the gift of sheer relaxation with our Daddy Day Care spa package? He'll get a deep tissue back massage that targets tight muscles and areas of tension as well as a scalp massage. This is the ultimate luxury treatment to relieve aches and pains, which can be tailored to your dad's individual needs. After his treatment he has full use of the spa facilities for the day and gets a delicious burger and beer to enjoy for lunch!

On Sunday we will be wishing a very Happy Father's day to the men in our lives who do everything they can to provide and care for us!
