    cottage in Lyme Regis? or too far?

    there’s some kid friendly soft play type places around there and there’s always rock pools to play in when the tide’s out?

    North Norfolk, should be loads of cheap options now kids back in school.


    Try the Haven website ,if you are after a static van for a break .

    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.

    cheddar gorge?

    Isle of Wight?

    Jurassic coast ? Lullworth cove area
    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 lovely


    Head Swanage way or inland a bit from there or just Camber Sands way…



    The viaduct:

    The Hat museum:

    You don’t know what you’re missing!


    the question is….what are you planning to do?

    Isle of Purbeck (as mentioned) is a great spot for beach walks, cliff walks, pubs, thatched cottages, castles and feels you’re on holiday!

    Durdle door camp site might do a cheap static for the weekend!


    second Lulworth cove area, or Rye.


    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!

    So…any suggestions??



    I’ll second stockport.

    It also has the air raid shelters

    And more importantly a biscuit factory..


    *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 draughty


    Weather was looking ok in Eastbourne at the weekend, there’s the Martello caravan holiday park in pevensey bay, very near friston forest and South Downs, enigma bikes are up the road too in hailsham.


    Cheers for input – booked a Haven holiday at Coombe Park, nr Hastings!

    The lad will love the pools, and seems a nice enough place 🙂



    Worth taking the boy into hastings, the smugglers caves and the funicular railway are fun. De la warr pavilion in Bexhill and Seven sisters are worth a visit too.




    rusty trowel

    Could have stayed in our shed ya tos*er! 🙂
