Stayed here about three years ago http://www.forest-glade.co.uk/ Excellent site bit of a drive to the beach though, not far from Honiton for shopping etc. The places in North Wales I mentioned might be a bit far from you. We want to go back to Barry Island as out Daughetrs a big Gavin & Stacy fan, but it really is a nice place and Cardiff has lots to see and do too, could have a combined Beach / City break ?
Crricieth, LLanbedrog or any others in the area, lovely scenery some excellent beaches many with rock pools, if it rins go here http://www.glasfryn.co.uk/ More info on the area http://www.llyn.info/ Nice pub on the beach with lots of walks
Might be worth telling us your location. Lyme Regis is also good looking for Fossils. Barry Island has an excellent beach but all sand and small fair etc for the kids. Cornwall, well loads to choose from This is on a very nice beach http://www.hiddenhut.co.uk/
Not telling you any more as I have revealed too many secret places allready LOL
I am looking for a self catering (and not too expensive) week away during the Easter hols. I have 5 children ages 11 - 8 months and a lovely beach to pootle on would be amazing. Has anyone any suggestions?
