Group holidays for single parent families:

Are you a single parent tired of travelling alone with your children? Join other single mums and single dads and their kids by going on a single parent group holiday in the UK or abroad! Whether you are bereaved, separated, divorced or a solo parent by choice – you will meet like-minded single mums and single dads on our one parent holidays, which have been a great success for almost 15 years now.

Spend your holidays with other solo families at carefully selected family-friendly hotels, relax and let us worry about the details: One of Single Parents on Holiday’s team members will be at the resort, organising every aspect of your single parent family holiday, so you can have a hassle-free time in the knowledge that everything is taken care of. If you holiday with us, you won’t feel out of place as everyone is a single mum or single dad. Just choose from our range of 4-star single parent beach breaks, activity holidays, farm stays and ski holidays. Book your solo family trip with the leading tour operator in the UK for single parent holidays since 2005.

Group holidays for singles 40+:

Due to popular demand from parents whose children have grown up, we are now offering holidays for adults only, complementing our single with kids holidays. Our solo trips are ideal for singles, single parents whose kids are away or grown up and anyone whose partner can’t or won’t travel – there are many reasons why people seek company on holiday. If you think a group holiday might be for you, and you want to put your feet up and let others organise, then our solo holidays will be a great fit. Your Single Parents on Holiday host will be your tour guide and organise every aspect of your trip, allowing you to focus on discovering new destinations, enjoying adult company and recharging your batteries with other solo travellers in their 40s, 50s and 60s. Let us take care of everything else!

Our single parent family and solo holidays are financially protected. Find out more here: financial failure protection.

Single parent ski holidays 2021:

If you have ever skied or snowboarded, you will know that it’s not much fun to be alone on the slopes whilst the kids are at ski school. With this in mind, we have designed a range of fabulous single parent ski holidays that run in all the school holidays, starting at Christmas and finishing at Easter. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced skier, we will make your single parent holiday as hassle free as possible by arranging your safe return transfer from the airport to the hotel, organising your lift passes, hire equipment and ski lessons. Naturally, our team members will stay with our group throughout the week. They will check that our single mums, dads and kids are happy with their lessons and offer ski guiding for the intermediate to advanced skiers, so everyone has company on and off the slopes. Our 4-star family hotels are either right by the piste or within a short shuttle distances from the slopes.

Solo holidays for single parents without kids:

So, what do you do when the kids are staying with your ex, or have fled the nest? Whatever your situation, who doesn’t dream of a break away from the kids to recharge their batteries and enjoy some me-time at some point? We have created a select number of solo holidays for any singles or single parents who are able to travel solo, want a stress-free, fully organised break and don’t want to miss out on adult company on holiday. Check out our beach break in beautiful Croatia or join us on one of our solo ski trips in Austria.

Holiday Reviews

"I asked my daughter how she would describe our holiday in Lanzarote and she said ‘fabulous’. I totally agree. Sandra is a wonderful host and, alongside the super clean and comfortable hotel, the all-inclusive deal with great food and drinks, the lovely swimming pools and, of course, the good company of other families, this proved to be a really great holiday. We loved our camel ride, the trip to Rancho Texas zoo, the beach with pedalos and banana boats, walking along the seafront to the marina, visiting Teguise market and cruising in the glass bottomed boat – all great fun. Many thanks once again."

− Beccy & Lily (9) - single parent beach holiday in Lanzarote, August 2012

"This was the 1st time using “single- parent holiday”. I truly really loved it. Very well organised and loads of avtivities for the children. Safe environment and very good hotel."

− Judith & Elvie (11) - single parent activity holiday in Alpendorf, August 2011

"My daughter and I enjoyed a trip of a lifetime to Magredi in the beautiful and very rural Friulian Dolomites area of Italy. I chose the holiday because it was recommended by a friend and because it felt there was a great balance of activities that we would both enjoy like enjoying the delights of the farm amidst the beauty of the mountain and lakes, while being able to have time out at the pool and first class horse-riding facilities. For us adults there were also nice touches like wine tasting.
We had never experienced a holiday with a similar group of single parents, and were a little nervous over what to expect. However, we need not be concerned. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed by both our fabulous and very organised rep for the week, Andrea, and the rest of the group. Within hours we were all chatting away and making friends. Violet absolutely loved having a big group of kids to hang around with and enjoyed the freedom of being able to amble around the farm without adult supervision at all times. Being able to ride a horse every day was a dream come true for her, and she came home a competent rider.
My daughter enjoyed all the range of activities on offer, and while she would happily be in the pool all day, relished the chance to pick fruit to then make into jam, take a horse and tractor ride around the farm, and arts and craft mornings.
It was fabulous not having to make decisions over what we were going to do each day, that it was all organised for us, and that we just had to turn up. That made it relaxing for us adults and it was nice also not having to cook! It was also great that you knew there as always a parent on hand to keep an eye on your child if you needed some time out.
Single Parents on Holiday are a very professional outfit, who take a very individual and personal approach to ensuring you have a fantastic, and easy holiday to make memories to last a lifetime. I will be recommending to all my friends looking to take a similar holiday.

− Sharon & Violet (8) - single parent farm holiday in Magredi, July 2018

"Just a quick note to say thank you for a WONDERFUL holiday. Oscar and I had a fantastic time. Thank you for looking after us so well!"

− Ruth & Oscar (Turrach skiing Feb 07)

"Jack and I had a fabulous time on the holiday. Was great for Jack to have other children to enjoy the experiences with, and I loved being able to talk to other grown ups. Thomas was a wonderful host and nothing was too much trouble for him."

− Unity & Jack (9) - single parent activity holiday in Alpendorf, August 2019

"Question: Is it possible to go on holiday without finding even just one thing to complain about? The answer is quite simply yes. The Sani beach holiday with Single parents on holiday is one of the best holidays I have ever been on. Thanks to the tireless organisation by Sandra and her family plus the helpful, courteous hotel staff, my 6 year old daughter Chloe and I were made to feel welcome and so well looked after throughout our stay. Thank you so much for a wonderful stress free holiday."

− Martin & Chloe (6)(Halkidiki holiday, August 2010)

"The hotel was in an excellent location, and provided consistently good food and quality facilities. The range of inclusive snacks and drinks was excellent; and Sandra’s organisation and attentiveness was, as always, first rate."

− Paul, Alice (13) & Daisy (11) (Fuerteventura, August 2012)

"The hotel was a friendly, typically Austrian hotel in the Alps. Great views. Food choice was amazing. SPOH arranged some great day-out activities for the families, and you did feel obliged mostly to all do the trips together. If you do not like spending long days with / as a group then this holiday is not for you, because you do not get much time alone. Our kids bonded really well as did the adults and we enjoyed every minute. Our guide, Thomas was a very welcome addition to our group and we appreciated everything he did for us. He could not do enough and he made our holiday seamless and very relaxed and enjoyable. We made some very good friends in our group (including Thomas) and we miss everybody and are already talking about our next trip away together with SPOH!"

− Kate & Sebastian (10) - single parent activity holiday in Alpendorf, August 2019

"Another thoroughly enjoyable holiday with SPOH. Friendly, like-minded adults, happy and excited kids. There was something for everyone on this action-packed holiday: hiking, rafting, summer tobogganing, or just floating in the infinity pool with one of the most stunning views I have ever seen. Despite all the action, it was the most relaxing week I've had all year thanks to the expert organisation skills of our lovely host, Thomas. Along with the almost, non-stop, delicious food, I hardly had to think or lift a finger all week. I'm ready for next year's holiday now!"

− Katrine & Marius (7) - single parent activity holiday in Alpendorf, July 2018

"I took my 5 year old daughter on this trip and it was a sensational holiday for us both. The excursion to the souks was a real cultural experience - with snake charmers and handmade items galore. The vibrant colours and vivid designs were truly breathtaking. The local guide meant that we were not hassled too much and I’d recommend checking local prices to avoid being ripped off. I’d also take a buggy/stroller if your child isn’t great at walking longer distances. The weather was absolutely perfect varying between 25 and 29 degrees which meant that the children spent the majority of their time in the swimming pools. The Atlas Mountain excursion is well worth it. Overall an amazing holiday that we didn’t want to end! We managed to find a local camel ride which just topped everything off! You won’t regret going on this holiday."
