Thinking Of Booking A Last Minute Family Holiday This Summer?

Collaborative post

We haven't had a summer family holiday this year as all of our pennies went on our recent wedding, so I am currently craving a sunshine break. There is just something rather magical about family holiday's, I love the break from routine and being able to relax without the chores of everyday life getting in the way. As a family of five, it is also the only time that we get to spend quality time together without work, school, after-school clubs and life getting in the way. Most importantly of all holiday's are where memories are made, children seem to flourish on holiday learning new skills, trying new things and I think it is so special to be able to discover the world with them and see things through their eyes. 

So I have been searching for a last-minute holiday. 

Searching for holiday's is one of my favourite things to do, I have lost count of all of the different places that I want to visit. My brother works in travel so he is always visiting amazing places with work and telling me about them and it sets me off daydreaming, I have a serious case of wanderlust. One place that keeps getting recommended to me is Turkey, a few of our friends have been recently and recommended it and there seems like there is so much to do for families. Turkey is somewhere that I have never been before but my husband visited many years ago and has always wanted to return for a family holiday with our own children. 

Whilst browsing online I discovered a great deal that Mark Warner are running where you can receive 15% off the cost of your Turkish summer holiday with them. The beach resort of Phokaia looks idyllic with a golden beach, the warm mediterranean sea to paddle in, tranquil gardens, a spacious and modern looking hotel and an impressive activity programme to keep the whole family entertained. Located on the outskirts of the harbour town of Foca, which looks full of charm and somewhere wonderful to explore. It is the kind of holiday that you know that you will be well looked after, make memories to last a lifetime and not want to leave. 

The thing that really stands out to me is that Mark Warner offer day time children's clubs and they even offer evening childcare. The dream! As we have just got married this sounds perfect for us as the children will be coming on honeymoon with us, and the idea that we can arrange childcare so we can actually enjoy a nice evening meal without the children interrupting every two minutes or wanting to eat super early is just perfect. 

Now I just need to convince my husband that we should spend our savings on a last-minute family holiday this summer and not the home improvements that we had planned. Wish me luck. 



  1. We are searching for last minute deals too! I hope we get something good.

  2. We've not booked anywhere for the summer yet, hoping to get a last minute deal. Fingers crossed you manage to convince your husband

    1. It didn't work sadly, but we do have two weeks booked for next year xx

  3. I agree with you, I love searching and planning holidays too xx

  4. Good luck, I hope you get your holiday! We're off on holiday in a few weeks and I can't wait.

  5. Our holiday has fallen through but am unsure whether to try and book another, or just enjoy the UK
