About Taking 5

Rock 'n' Roller Coaster - Orlando, Florida


Taking 5 is a new website bringing together holidays and outings accessible to families of 5 or more.

Finding information about holidays or short breaks suitable for families larger than the standard 2 adults and 2 children can be a lengthy, disjointed and frustrating task. Taking5.com aims to simplify the process.

The company was created after Jane Batt realised how her family’s travel options were diminished once they became a family of five. Taking 5 will be a central information point, collating helpful travel information for larger and extended families, as well as the occasional child free recommendation. A series of holiday reviews, tips and guide videos will be published in partnership with relevant advertisers as the site grows. Featuring advice, reviews and holiday booking options, it’s aim is to help guide larger families towards some great holiday experiences.


Jane has 3 boys aged 9, 7 and 4. She currently runs the successful parenting/events website www.practicallyperfectmums.co.uk and has an established social media following on Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Google+, Facebook and Pinterest. As the writer of a top 500 parenting blog, she’s regularly approached by PR companies and brands to review items, experiences and more recently, holidays. She’s part of a broad network of family influencers and is a member of the TOTS 100, Netmums Bloggers Network, Social Fabric and Mumsnet Bloggers network.

Jane’s was a professional video producer for almost 20 years before going onto develop websites. She loves any excuse to get her hands on a camera, so watch this space for video reviews of her latest holiday recommendations!
