we're aiming to go away for a long weekend at the end of july. we've been invited to a party in cardiff so want to be within striking distance. we have ds 3.5 & dd who'll be a month old. we'd like to be near a nice sandy beach, & staying on a farm would be perfect. i have promised dp that mumsnet will have the perfect solution for us.... so help please.

how far is striking distance?
there are no beaches in cardiff - its a new bay development with lots of restaurant and cafes
the gower further along the coast is beautiful but quite a drive
will see what i can find out about farms for you

thank you. the party is in penarth. i've looked at a map now, & think the gower peninsula would be a good solution. we'll stay there for a couple of nights & then go to the party on the way home. any family friendly reccommendations there? i've found a few on the web, waiting for them to call me back.

yes, i saw, ss, thanks for that. i think we want to be somewhere a bit more rural though. loads of great suggestions here. i've found this which looks a bit hippy but nice all the same....

if you want rural rather than beach maybe the brecon beacons? Or you could not go as far as Cardiff but look at places like usk. The wye valley is really beautiful but its further to the beach
