We did this offer last feb half term at Arundle. Hostel is big old house and a bit run down but plenty of space. Visited wetland centre and Singleton outdoor museum. This summer stayed in national forest yha which is brand new and very nice. We cycled lots but it is also nextdoor to Conkers which is quite good for kids.
The YHA have a great Winter Warmer deal on at the moment so we want to book a weekend away - anywhere really - just to go somewhere new.
We've booked Ilam Hall for the end of half term next February as it's close to Alton Towers and we'll do a day there and a day at the waterpark. We've stayed there before and it's great for DC. And at £66.50 for two nights for a private room for 4 with en-suite and dinner it's a bargain!
I wondered if anyone could recommend any other really nice locations? We're not really into walking or cycling. Just somewhere nice to visit with plenty of space in the hostel for DC to be able to roam.
