Whereabouts for a holiday in England?.
Looking to explore these shores a bit more, I'd thought about The west country as I'd like to go to Bath. Not bothered about being near to good biking areas, but it would be an added bonus.
I don't really want to drive as far as Devon/Cornwall, but I'd maybe consider it.
So, in summary, a cottage for a week when the schools go back (first week in sept), in walking distance of good eateries, nice area, things to entertain the wee yin etc.
All suggestions welcome. Thanks.Posted 8 years agoPookSubscriber
Devon and Cornwall are well worth the drive.
I spent the majority of my childhood holidays there, and always aim to get back each year.
Took my gf last year and she loved it.
I can strongly recommend this place
which has private grounds all along the river to watch birds/fish/the otter, a BBQ and swings.
Lovely people too. Also right on the camel trail for biking, and across the valley from the Camel Valley Vineyard for beautiful wine!Posted 8 years agoTi29erMember
I also like the rugged NE England coast line up from Filey towards the Tees estuary.
Whitby, Runswick Bay, Robin Hoods Bay, N Yorkshire Moors in the hinterland (Think! Dalby Forest) etc.
If you do go to Porlock there's a sodding hill out of the town that just has to ridden – steepest A road in the UK (?).Posted 8 years agosquinMember
Sorry to offer a suggestion of somewhere you opened by saying you didn't want to go, but….. St.Ives in Cornwall. I lived there as a kid and it's simply the most beautiful place in the UK. Beautiful white sand beaches, fantastic restaurants, great pubs, unbelieveable coastline, loads of art culture (Tate, Barbara Hepworth, Ben Nicholson, Leech (sp?), etc etc), plus there is some brilliant riding straight out of St.Ives onto the Penwith Moors. The weather will still be warm. September is their SeptFest with loads of live music and performances all month.
Also, can you fly from Prestwick to Newquay?
