Recommend me a gettaway this weekend…
If you want off-grid, I can recommend Lundy.
Electricity goes off at night – open fires, no TV, WiFi or mobile signal. Loads of wildlife and a pub. Bliss.
Accommodation on the island is managed by the Landmark Trust.
We stayed here – it was great. have brilliant memories of sitting up in the light house on deckchairs drinking whiskey and eating fruitcake whilst an Autumn storm crashed against the tower. Lovely:
For proper back to basics, this may be another option:
Worth a call – we got a great deal on a last minute booking.
You can get boat from Ilfracombe or a heli from Hartland.Posted 4 years agosingletrackmindMember
Jurassic coast ? Lullworth cove areaPosted 4 years ago
Burford is a pretty village to visit
Rye or Romney Marsh is quaint
Do some NT stuff ? Leed Castle, Hever castle ,Chartwell
Weather will be fine , warmer and drier from Thursday afto onwards.
Croyde Bay for a relaxed surfer vibe and nearer than you think
South Wales, Gower area or Pendine sands . never been but supposed to be lovelyDrPMember
Looking to take the family somewhere cheap, quaint, and ideally off grid this weekend..
Live on the south coast, and want to ‘get away’, but not too far.
A little cave in the welsh hills would be nice, but alas don’t want teh distance.
Was thinking of a static caravan type thing in Eastbourne, but mind not really operating at 100%.
Weather not looking too sharp for camping either!

*the facilities slightly had the smell of unmarried man about them (we were in the lighthouse), also the only pub with walking distance – something like – sitting on LHS meal A = 6.50, on RHS meal A = 7.50 ???? not a winner (*couple of years ago) (*there were takeaways that delivered)
BUT fabulous view, interesting surrounding – round Bill path (*not suitable windy day, children on rope, sculpture, old tramway etc etc), Weymouth harbour for nice scenes , buzz food etc, and you can bike all around it and we did it in BLAZING sunshine, suspect in winter it might be a bit draughtyPosted 4 years ago
