Take the Family to our Idyllic Countryside Location...

Luxury Family Holidays in Scotland

Take time out with the family and escape to the idyllic countryside


Blessed with endless miles of rural countryside, big cities, charming villages, coastlines and castles, Scotland is the ideal place to enjoy a family break. Staycations give you the flexibility and freedom to explore, indulge and relax at your own pace. Plan your adventures, day trips and downtime at our hotel near Glasgow. 

With Glasgow only a short drive away and panoramic views surrounding our hotel, plan time away at our family-friendly hotel where you can spend quality time with loved ones and make new, everlasting memories.


Dedicated Family Suite

A luxury family holiday in Scotland isn’t far from the heart of Glasgow. Bowfield Hotel & Spa offers families privacy, peace and quiet, and a beautiful family hotel room to rest and relax. Spread across three rooms, our dedicated family suite features a master bedroom, a children’s bedroom and a bathroom for up to 5 family members. 

The separate rooms allow mum and dad to have alone time as well as keeping a close eye on the little ones – the best of both worlds. With a king-size bed for the adults, a triple bunk bed for the kids, and flat-screen TVs, you can hide in your room all day, watch movies together and enjoy one another’s company.

New Lodges with Hot Tubs

Fun Factory Soft Play

Tire out the kids and let them run wild at our indoor soft play where they can climb, slide, and have endless amounts of fun racing through our assault course. Supervised creche is also available in mornings and evenings (advanced booking required), so Mum and Dad can get over to the gym and get a quick workout done before the kids want to do something else. 

A family stay at Bowfield Hotel & Spa is not complete without a family dip in the pool. Let the kids practice their swimming whilst you sit back on our comfortable loungers and enjoy some downtime by the pool. There’s even a dedicated family swim time on Sundays at 11am.

Access to the swimming pool and soft play is included in every stay!

Things to do as a Family

Following your indulgent breakfast, enjoy a breath of fresh country air and explore the beautiful grounds that surround our hotel. Play I spy, hide and seek or simply wander together as a family. Our hotel is the perfect destination for family nights away.

If you’d like to explore some more, Glasgow is only a short drive away where you can explore the city, see the sights, historical buildings, indulge more and enjoy loads of family activities. Or if you’d like to stay a little closer to the hotel, the Barcraigs reservoir is gorgeous for a family walk. 

Whether you choose an action packed family getaway in Scotland or want to escape the hustle of the city, Bowfield Hotel & Spa is the perfect basecamp for your next family adventure.
