Family rooms from just £30 per night are on offer by the Independent Hostels UK network (IHUK) of over 300 houses, cottage and barns across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. In addition to the privacy of a multi bed room (sometimes with a double bed, often en-suite and ideal for any family size) they provide self-catering facilities, dining areas and other social areas where the kids are welcome to play. Independent Hostels are ideal for family holidays for those seeking friendly, clean and value places to stay without membership requirements.
