Holidays for single parents – the concept:

Unlike big tour operators, we offer holidays exclusively for single parents and their kids because we know what it’s like to travel on your own and feel like the odd one out amongst traditional two-parent families! If you travel with us, you will spend your single parent family holidays in a group of like-minded single mums and dads at carefully selected family friendly star-rated hotels – and you won’t need to worry about organising a thing: For your peace, of mind a Single Parents on Holiday team member will spend the week with our single parents and will have organised all aspects of your single parent holiday before you have even arrived at the resort, so you can have a hassle-free time in the knowledge that everything is taken care of. Whatever your situation, whether you want to get back to nature and spend as much of your holiday outdoors, we are confident that one of our single parent family holidays is the perfect match for you.

Holidays with a touch of luxury:

As usual, our single parent holidays 2020 include 4-star hotels and superior 4-star hotels that offer a touch of luxury. Whether you love a bit of pampering and are looking for a hotel with an amazing spa and kids club, or you just want to put your feet up and let others organise (that’s what we are best at!), our single parent holidays 2020 programme has some beautiful hotels where you can treat yourself and the kids to a little bit of luxury. And you don’t even need to go to the other side of the planet as our beach and activity holiday destinations are only a short flight away. Travel with Single Parents on Holiday for the best single parent holidays for UK solo parents.

Single parent ski holidays:

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 the 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.

Single parent dating:

Online dating for single parents is a convenient and safe way to meet other solo mums and dads for friendship and dating. Join our single parent dating site for free, browse profiles of single parents in the UK and decide in your own time if single parent dating is for you. There is no pressure, it’s easy and secure, and you can be as selective as you like. Best of all, you won’t need a babysitter to get to know the other singles.

Holiday Reviews


− Stuart, Imogen (11) and Jack (6) - single parent beach holiday in Lanzarote, August 2018

"The best holiday EVER! – Isabelle, aged 9 Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this holiday and company if you want a relaxed and well organised break"

− Kate & Isabelle (9) - single parent beach holiday in Sardinia, August 2015

"Our holiday on Fuerteventura was really great because of how un commercialised it is as an island and because of the fabulous beaches. It was a little hideaway that we came to love. The group was such fun and our guide became a part of our fun."

− Laura & Daniel (10) (Fuerteventura, August 2013)

"I fell in love with Marrakech, it was a wonderful holiday and I met some lovely people on this holiday. It was a well organised trip that I felt safe to explore and enjoy Morocco with my son. "

− Hannah & Reuben (6) - single parent city trip in Marrakesh, February 2020

"The whole holiday was brilliant from the easy pick up to the comfortable Mercedes taxi ride back to the airport. Sandra’s attentiveness, organising of the water park trip , the extended stay in our accommodation and Tim’s interaction with my teenage boys all helped to turn what would have been a good holiday into a great holiday. The hotel accommodation was perfect for me and 2 big teenagers, plenty of space, the room, the pool, eating and bar areas were always clean and tidy. Combined with lots of sunshine and good company meant I had the perfect relaxing holiday, Thank you."

− Teresa, Jack (13) & William (11) - single parent beach holiday in Crete, August 2011

"Myself and my daughter had the most amazing time in Magredi. It exceeded my expectations on so many levels. Our group was such good fun and the kids all made wonderful friendships which was so lovely to see. It was great to watch the kids try out all the fun activities like pizza making and jam making and I loved that the kids sat separately at dinner so the mums could have well needed adult chat over a lot of local vino! I would highly recommend this holiday to any single parent out there who wants an adventure holiday (with a good amount of time to relax too) but doesn’t want the stress of organising everything independently. If you’re lucky like me and Layla, you’ll have the most memorable week possible. "

− Deborah & Layla (5) - single parent farm holiday in Magredi, July 2018

"The holiday was an ideal choice for my son's first ski holiday - we enjoyed skiing in the morning and then taking advantage of the lovely hotel in the afternoon. The kids' club and the slide from the second floor to the ground floor were a particular hit!"

− Amy & Gabriel (3) (Turrach skiing, April 2016)

"A massive thank you to Sandra and Daniela for another enjoyable ski holiday with SPOH. An overall great value for money holiday that was stress free! We shall see you again soon."

− Kowkchee & Neve (14) - single parent ski holiday in Zillertal, February 2013

"My children came home saying Magredi was the best holiday ever. They keep asking when they can see their new friends again. The setting was beautiful, the family who run Magredi were so welcoming and kind and we all enjoyed both the activities on offer and hanging out by the pool. The horse riding was a highlight but what I will remember most is the laughs with all the other parents and watching my girls play with the other kids."

− Anna & children aged 9 & 8 - single parent farm holiday in Magredi, August 2016

"Alpendorf is a great location for this type of holiday, being on a mountain side enjoying fantastic views. The hotel has everything both the kids and adults could want including superb pools, one of them an infinity, a well-run gym with free classes and a wellness area. It’s full-board with the breakfast and dinner being excellent. The lunch is basic but runs for five hours leaving you to catch it before or after your day out; they’ll even make a packed lunch for you too. There are kids rooms and a park with mini golf, cars etc nearby that the kids can spend lots of time in whilst the adults relax in the hotel bar area.
Our guide, Thomas, organised daily activities which ranged from hikes to white-water rafting to tree-walking. My nine year old enjoyed all of these and was about the average age of the kids in the group. We had a large group with 14 adults so the girls and boys formed separate groups but everything worked well with both kids and adults being able to interact with different people during the week. Thomas had a laid-back approach which suited us and we never felt compelled to the activities.
Overall, it was a great week and I would recommend this to any single-parent, especially whose kids enjoy activities."

− Trevyn & Timothy (9) - single parent activity holiday in Alpendorf, July 2018
