the dcs and I would like to have a few days away at the coast with Sil. We don't mind if we stay in a caravan or hotel etc as long as it's a good standard. We would like to go to Dorset, near Chisel beach to do crabbing, sandcastle building etc. But will consider other areas as long as drive is no more than 3 hours from M25 J24. I went to Southwold last month for the weekend and would be more than happy to go back there but though Dorset might be a tad less expensive (Southwold was silly money for eating out. I don't mind paying good money for good food but once or twice I felt I was being taken for a ride). Dcs are 10 & 6.
Anything to suggest anyone? We are looking to go for 3/4 days week starting august 29th.
It's not quite Chesil but Christchurch harbour hotel is very nice and excellently placed for crabbing - mudeford quay - and sandcastle building on beautiful Avon beach. There is also a caravan park which fronts on to the beach with some very nice looking units. Will try to find its name. Hope that helps.
ok, now i'm spoilt for choice and i don't know what to do! I've found a different caravan park company who have three sites in Dorst all with availability but I've also found that Pinewood in Norfolk have one lodge available for the week 19th August and a caravan available for the weekend 2/9. Now, too much choice and Ic ant flipping decide what to do!! So, Dorset or Norfolk people please? What's it to be?
