   Belgium for Families
Friday 3rd August 2018 to Friday 10th August 2018  :  8 days
Join us in a Belgium chateau within 10 hectares of private parkland. Lake, games room, tennis court, BBQ area, well equipped kitchens, laundry, small rooms, almost all en suite. Daily circular rides 40-55kmpd. An ideal introduction to cycling abroad in comfort. Families with children only please.

This offers the opportunity to tour abroad in comfort, in the company of other families. It follows a tried and tested format, where families set off together at about 0930, visit a cafe, then a place of interest and then another stop in the afternoon returning about 1730. After this the children get together and play whilst the adults cook an evening meal, drink a bottle of wine and generally relax knowing that the children are having fun. The ages range from 6 months to 16 years with the commonest age being between 5 and 12. Our children go as well and this year James is 10 and Louise 8. Any combination of bicycle is welcome, from kiddiback tandems, trailers, tag alongs to children on their own bike. I do ask that if children cycle on their own bike that the parents keep an eye on them. The pace is relaxed and I will keep everyone broadly together. However route sheets are provided so if you wish to stay awhile at a location, you are most welcome. The location I have chosen is a large Belgium Chateau. The rooms are small so that most adults can room seperately to their children if they wish. Most of these rooms are en suite. The chateau is based in 10 hectares of private grounds. There is an outside covered BBQ area and a tennis court. The chateau is very well equipped with 2 kitchens. One is recently renewed with a charcoal grill, oven, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. All this will allow a lovely environment to enjoy your holiday.
