need some inspiration

jessicasmummy Mon 20-Jun-05 09:58:21

probably not what you mean but i love it!

handlemecarefully Mon 20-Jun-05 09:59:07

hey - all suggestions welcome. I've no pre-conceived ideas about where I want to go!

desperatehousewife Mon 20-Jun-05 10:05:44

with or without kids?
For how long?
Abroad or this country?
big or little budget?

elsmommy Mon 20-Jun-05 10:06:23

I've got hardly any money so we booked this yesterday!

It was only £179 quid for the week

handlemecarefully Mon 20-Jun-05 10:18:07

Desperate: With kids....

This country or abroad (but not majorly long haul)

1-2 weeks

Budget quite generous but cheaper ideas as welcome as more deluxe ideas. Eclectic tastes!

If you'd fancy self-catering in a cottage, Kennacott Court is excellent.

That looks fun Elsmommy. We've just come back from a long w/end in Scarborough - my parents live there, and the kids had the best time

There's a lot to be said for self catering. I find it a bit more relaxing to have the greater space in a self catering cottage / apartment than a hotel room. Thanks for the link WWB - sounds excellent, particularly given the on site facilities.

can really recommend this

We got a fortnight halfprice because we booked quite close to departure date.

Wow - asking for links has generated some fab ideas. Could end up spoilt for choice!!!

We've just been to the Isle of WIght for the first time and fell in love with it (the South and West side of the island).

I now spend a great deal of my free time browsing estate agents websites looking for a holiday home there

We stayed at a nice hotel, The Wellington in Ventnor - but self catering would be an excellent option there.

this (or Talmine just on the other side of the Kyle, is our favourite area - great beaches and empty. A long drive though !

elliott Mon 20-Jun-05 10:31:57

Daphne's at zakynthos (google it to find the web page). Great for a low key beach holiday.

Double sigh

handlemecarefully Mon 20-Jun-05 11:47:54

Please keep these coming. Will discuss them with dh tonight...

This is where I'd go back to in a flash if I could afford to, our honeymoon destination

Makunudu, Maldives

Gobbledigook Mon 20-Jun-05 11:52:59

Also been here and it's beautiful - we went in summer and had everything from hot and sunny to snow!!

Obergurgl, Austria

Gobbledigook Mon 20-Jun-05 11:53:39

The Bergwelt perhaps not a kids place though...

QueenOfQuotes Mon 20-Jun-05 11:54:25

Victoria Falls, in Zim (don't know of any links)

You don't have to stay in Zim, you can stay in Zambia and view the falls from either side of the 'border' - lovely place, warm, sunny and VERY impressive :-)
