It would help if you explain a little more please. What passport do you and your family hold, UK or EU? 

Which visa you require depends on what you would like to do here in Spain. If you want to retire here and not work then the non lucrative visa will be best.

Here is a link to the non lucrative visa:

If you want to start a new business then the entrepreneurs visa will be required but you will need to supply a business plan that will include benefits for Spain and how you will be able to create employment in Spain.

Hi,

You will find it extremely difficult to set up a new business here in Spain. You will need to submit a detailed business plan, how its going to benefit Spain and how you will be able to employ Spanish people. 

Here is a link with all the details and information you need:

As Steve said, it's very difficult Brits no longer EU citizens a lot of hurdles to jump. But good luck.
