Hi, my trio will be 15 in Jan. I have bb/g. Finding it increasingly harder to find a holiday to suit us all. Our problem is my dh has cancer, so we are not in a position to book too far ahead as no one will insure him. Our last pre cancer holiday was 4 weeks touring the West Coast of America, absolutley fab! Open to any ideas, w/ends, anything!
Agent.........what is there to do in Edinburgh? Still struggling, dh wants to go back to Forest Holidays, yes its lovely accomodation, fab hot tub but no onsite facilities, poor dd had her period the 4 days we were there so couldn`t even use the hot tub!
if you don't want to go to far then Jersey & Guernsy and are fab and easy to get to by ferry from the south east southampton portsmouth ect and there are good flights from most airports as well
(although i would recommend not taking car and hiring one when you are there as it works out cheaper and easier to do )
If you go buy ferry you can book last minute and you will always find somewhere to stay The Mayfair hotel normally have good deals has a pool games room wifi and is reasonably priced I think the Merton has the aqua dome swimming pool
Its safe enough that the your kids can go out at night and you won't have to worry to much about them either as St Helier is pretty small
You can do day trips to france and the weather is generally pretty nice most of the time Its not to far away but it is dose feel like your abroad (ifyswim) and its not in the euro either
There are some really nice hotels and also some good self catering options as well out of season
Its not in the EU though so make sure that you have travel insurance
Isle of White is another great place thats easy to get to and you can combine it with a few days with Channel islands as well as the ferries go from southampton to both places
Ferries/fast cat go every 30 mins or so every day they have the Bestival there last year which load of teen/ young kids went to and its a pretty easy place to get to
Hello. Edinburgh is great. We live in Glasgow, so usually go over in the festival, but outwith August there is plenty to do. Lovely hotels and restaurants. Beaches very close. Pandas at the zoo. The Dungeons. The Castle. An underground city. Ghost walks. Walk up Arthur's seat. Open top bus tours. Clubbing for under 18s. It's relatively small and safe - give your teenagers an all-day bus ticket and you won't see them for dust. You can even get the train through to Glasgow for the day!
We did a lovely weekend away to Alton towers which my teen sons really enjoyed. In the summer we find cruises work really well. The boys have the run of the ship and we can do as little or as much as we like.
