I – and other mums and dads like me – need a holiday home that truly caters for their family, from the basics that we take granted at home such as stairgates and electric socket covers, to having a really safe swimming pool.  So I set about sourcing child-friendly properties and personally inspecting them, asking the all important question, “is this place nice enough for me to come and stay with my family?” Wendy Shand – Founder of Tots to Travel and Tots to France

Property owners who elect to have their holiday rental properties included in the Tots to Travel scheme have their accommodation vetted by a local representative according to a process jointly developed with the Child Accident Prevention Trust (CAPT). If successful, the property is then listed in the Tots to Travel directory along with a personal comment by the company representative on its child-friendly status.
