Cuckooz partners with the Modern Nursery to launch family travel apartment

The apartments are designed to accommodate the growing trend of business travellers opting to take their family with them when visiting the UK for more prolonged periods of time.

A total of 37.9 million visits were made by overseas residents in 2018, largely driven by visitors from the USA with 8.8 million of those travelling doing so for business requirements.

It is estimated that by 2020, around half of the UK and American workforce will be freelance and that there has also been a 40 per cent increase in the number of children being homeschooled. This has led to an increase in the number of parents opting to take their children with them on business trips.

Cuckooz co-founder Charlie Rosier said: "Family travel is no new trend, but the propensity for the new age business traveller to take their family along for the ride is something we've seen a growing demand for. Changes in the way we work and the way we raise our children has extended the boundaries of what is normal, and this greater level of flexibility is resulting in more and more people choosing to bring their family with them when visiting the UK for an extended period of time for business."

Rosier says there is click of suitable accommodation for such families: "The traditional hotel may fit the needs of a modern family for a few days at a time, but they aren't providing the requirements for a family to settle in a given city on a more long-term basis. Serviced apartments are a far more suitable option when looking for a home away from home with the space and amenities to accommodate a family, but we wanted to take this a step further and shoulder some of the weight that comes with travelling with young ones in particular."

This led Cuckooz to create its first family-friendly apartment in partnership with contemporary nursery décor specialist the Modern Nursery.
 
Located in Old Street, the two-bed deluxe apartment has been designed with a family of four in mind, complete with cot, toddler bed, high-chair, teepee, ball-pit, plates, baby-friendly cups and cutlery, baby bath, potty, a nappy changing station, playmat, all-natural bathroom toiletries by Jackson & Willow, a stroller and assorted toys and books recommended by Cuckooz childcare professionals.

Rosier said: "Old Street is a place where every member of the family, from the tallest to the smallest, can feel at home. Brimming with young families, the leafy area boasts parks, museums and city farms and offers a variety of kid-friendly visits, for all ages."

Residents are entitled to a discounted membership to Cuckooz Nest during their stay. Cuckooz Nest is the sister company of Cuckooz, a co-working space with an integrated nursery for children under two providing a flexible childcare option for those conducting business during their stay.

Cuckooz's family-friendly apartment is available for a minimum three-night stay.
