Hi, we're thinking of taking our twins (3 years old) to the beach for a day out -but don't know where to go. We live in West Midlands, any suggestions for the best beaches that we can go to?... may be a day out or short stay, and we can make the trip by train or in our car. Any ideas appreciated! Thanks.
We've just been to Weymouth, and it was a proper seaside visit - donkeys, punch and judy, sandcastles and paddling. Really lovely, and didn't feel tacky.
A bit too far for a day trip from you, but good for a short stay. We were camping at Haven Littlesea (way better than I thought it could be) and that meant we got the bus direct to the beach which was perfect
CMOTdibbler we stayed at Haven Littlesea about 7 years ago. Booked one of the 'child decorated' caravans. Duvet covers were meant to be patterned with character bear.They were plain. Bedrooms had a couple of stickers up. Caravans just a few yards away from the play area.( Bouncy castle and trampolines at £2 a go. With 2 children if they have one go on each thats £8 gone in minutes)
Nearby was a river estury which had thick black stinking mud.
The DCs who were 2 and 4.6 at the time loved it and when it was time to leave after a week DS protested "We've only just got here!"
