Crieff Hydro

Centrally located in 900 acres of Perthshire countryside, Crieff Hydro offers an unrivalled range of leisure pursuits for all ages and is arguably the most comprehensive family activity and child-friendly holiday resort in Scotland.

Never heard of Crieff Hydro? Neither had we! However, we currently have two sets of friends who swear by this place for a brilliant family activity holiday in Perthshire, Scotland, so we thought we’d spread the word, especially about Crieff Hydro BIG Country…

Crieff Hydro Summer Holidays

Free childcare

I think the the big draw for families is BIG Country, Scotland’s largest registered childcare centre, which accommodates children two to 12-years-old. Think three-storey castles, amazing craft sessions and the biggest ball pool you’ve ever seen. You get up to four hours of FREE CHILDCARE a day if you book with the hotel directly. For under twos, there is a crèche and babysitting service (for a small supplement).

With the kids safely in BIG Country, you might want to enjoy a quiet meal for two or you can take advantage of the adults-only Victorian Spa and couples-only dining areas. Not forgetting all the onsite facilities, e.g. 18 hole golf course, Segways, 4x4s, watersports, badminton and tennis.

Family Activities

As a family, why not take part in several of the on-site activities (over 60 different things to do, as I type) including swimming pool, mini quads, pony trekking, low ropes, putting, bouncy castle, cinema, and a free daily entertainment programme. You can also join in the evening entertainment, which entails live music every Friday and Saturday night all year round, plus Mondays and Wednesdays if you stay during school holidays.

Crieff Hydro Accommodation

You have seven accommodation options to choose from, from luxury hotel and self catering, so you’ll certainly find your home from home. There’s a four star Victorian hotel with 215 luxury bedrooms and over 50 three to five star self-catering accommodations, from holiday cottages to chalets. The resort even has executive studios, ideal for couples or families.

Our friends (at the time of their visits) had children ranging from three to seven-years-old. We have yet to make it up there, but it looks so great that we thought we should share, as it’s good to find places that are so family orientated when you’ve got children of varied ages and you want to keep everyone amused.

What are you waiting for? Your Crieff Hydro holiday awaits…
