MANGO Single Parent Holidays offer a programme of holidays for single parent families. In spite of the growing number of single parent families, very few holiday companies cater specifically for their needs.
It was with this in mind that MANGO Single Parent Holidays was set up in 2003 and its programme of holidays specifically designed for Single Parent families has grown every year since. MANGO Single Parent Holidays runs holidays in the UK and overseas. There is a MANGO Single Parent Holiday to suit every Single Parent family whatever their interest. In the UK we have Single Parent Holidays near to the coast for those who like the sun, sea, surf and beach. Our single parent holidays in the Brecon Beacons are ideal for those who want more activities and enjoy the outdoors.
For those Single Parent Families looking for sunshine overseas, this year we have MANGO Single Parent Holidays to Jersey, Mallorca, Cyprus, Turkey, Lanzarote, Malta and many more destinations. In all our overseas locations we have found plenty for you to do as well as enjoy the sunshine, there are walks, boat rides, train and tram journeys, snorkeling, diving and beach games, which we call Beach Olympics. The MANGO Single Parent Family can now ski in France, Bulgaria & Romania at February Half term. Romania, a good introduction to Skiing includes all ski hire, 2 ski lessons a day, full board and a trip to Dracula's castle and has proven to be very popular for 5 years running.
All MANGO Single Parent Holidays operate as group holidays and are accompanied by a MANGO co-ordinator who is part of the holiday group. The MANGO co-ordinator is there with the group the whole of the time organising games, activities, visits and making sure everyone is having a great time. Their job is to make sure everything runs smoothly. We meet up each day after breakfast and plan our day together and then we meet up before dinner so that we eat together.

MANGO Single Parent Family Holidays stay in a variety of accommodation from hostels and barns to cottages, lodges and hotels. We go to the countryside and the seaside. There is something for every taste and every budget, and we always have fun.
MANGO Single Parent Family Holidays is run by Jackie Lewis and Steve Barber from their base in Shropshire. Both Jackie and Steve have been single parents themselves and understand that going on holiday as a Single Parent Family can be lonely and difficult. Jackie and Steve have been running walking holidays for adults for several years (see their website at www.tracksntrips.co.uk and www.just4youholidays.co.uk). It was the group format for their walking holidays, which lead to the development of MANGO Single Parent Family Holidays. In fact it was single parents on their holidays who suggested that the format would be ideal for Single Parent Family Holidays.
Holidays for lone parents and their children can often be a nightmare if you are surrounded by two parent families and feel left out. Often the kids make friends, leaving adults feeling left out and lonely. That is why we established MANGO so that parents can join in the fun too and meet other adults in the same situation.
All holidays are accompanied by Jackie and Steve or a MANGO coordinator and there is something arranged every day. But if you feel like doing your own thing one day there is no compulsion to join in the group - it is up to you.
Our experience so far shows that the group becomes one big family.
MANGO holidays also run holidays for you when you want to go away without the kids. These holidays are Just for You and include walking, sightseeing, cruising, adventure, photography and relaxing. Check them out at www.just4yousinglesholidays.co.uk

Mango Holidays sometimes referred to as MangoKids run holidays for single parents with their children. Small families with just one or two children are often penalised by the big tour operators who charge for two adults. Mango is the only tour operator to offer a discount to these small families for all children up to the age of 16 travelling with just one adult. Going on a Mango Holiday is an opportunity for single parents to meet other single parents and many single parents become friends and stay in touch after their holiday. Mango is not a single parent dating organisation. If you are interested in single parent dating you should check out our links page, which recommends a few organisations helping single parents meet. Being single with kids can be a daunting experience but it can be fun and we have designed a programme of holidays and weekend breaks for solo travellers with children to make sure they have some fun. Our solo holidays for single parents with children consist of adventure and activity breaks, ski holidays and holidays in the sun. Mango single parent holidays take place in the UK and overseas. In the UK we have holidays in Devon, Brecon Beacons and Pembrokeshire and we have a Christmas Party weekend in Warwickshire at the end of November. Mango holidays for single parent families overseas travel to Mallorca, Malta, Cyprus, Jersey, Morocco and Lapland to see Santa.
