Week off work with the family – ideas please!
Go around the corner to Tenby – much quieter than Cornwall and beaches are just as nice.
Manorbier is my favourite beach – lovely bay, good waves, huuuge rockpool area for kids to explore, castle in the background.
Or Barafundle Bay – the (easy) walk over to it keeps numbers down to a bearable level.
There’s loads to do in the Tenby area.Posted 4 years agolambchopMember
A couple of Beach days, a day at home maybe take 5 year old to cinema, or local swimming pool or just get a paddling pool in the garden, a couple of locallish day trps and that’s your week sorted. Get up early and hoof it down to north Devon for a day on the beach and fish n chips for tea! Or head inland, Wookie Hole, Lacock Abbey, loads of places within an hour of Bristol. Just take it day by day.Posted 4 years agoclubberMember
My wife and I have a week off work early in the school holidays. We have a 5 year old and a 1 year old.
We haven’t organised anything to do yet… We don’t really want to just spend a week at home doing nothing and not feeling like we’ve had a break, not to mention that the kids will start going nuts so I’m looking for inspiration on things to do together.
We had initially planned to go camping for a couple of nights not too far away (we’re in Bristol so looking at Devon) but my daughter’s not been sleeping well recently and I’m not sure I fancy being stuck on a campsite with a screaming kid… Maybe something for next year.
I had considered just doing a load of day trips (Lego Land as an example) but with the kids at 1 and 5, there’s a huge difference between what they’ll actually enjoy and get some enjoyment from and it may well work out that it costs almost as much as the option below.
So, another option is a last minute holiday but that’s looking pretty expensive unsuprisingly though we could do France for about £1k (£500 ferry with car, £500 eurocamp type thing in mobile home)
Have I missed anything? Any great ideas out there…?
Thanks all!Posted 4 years ago
