It’s somewhat of a British tradition: each summer, the whole family packs their suitcases and heads to a warmer destination in search of sun, sea and sand. With budget flights and rock-bottom budget package deals readily available, the annual ‘fly and flop’ holidays became a thing of routine, with parents packing their summer reads and kids looking forward to making new friends at the children’s clubs.
Travel with one or two children is tricky enough; when there’s five or more of you in the family it can seem impossible to find accommodation to suit your needs. We’ve rounded up UK breaks for large families, giving parents with three or more kids the chance to spend quality time with their brood in comfort and style. This light and airy property is just five minutes away from the train station and two minutes’ walk from the nearby beach, making it ideally located for a family break with children.
Skiing holidays with the family are a great way to have fun learning a new sport and enjoying nature together. We’ve rounded up the best kids’ ski gear to ensure your little ones are kitted out for the slopes! Tiny tots can take to the slopes with these aquamarine fun skis and poles from Skiweb. Ideal for snow bunnies aged two to four, the skis are wide with rounded tips and no metal edges for safety.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
