I'll be taking the DC away for a midweek camping break in August. I like the idea of using one of the Haven sites as a base as then we'll have access to the swimming pool. I'm in Bedfordshire and don't want to go too far in case the weather's awful or we decide to come home early for another reason. DH will be at work so it's just going to be me and the two DC (5 and 2) and I'm a little bit scared I won't be able to put up the tent by myself.
Both Golden Sands in Lincolnshire and Wild Duck near Great Yarmouth look ideal; any experiences of either?
I've given her a ring and it is the site she likes. She says the beach is lovely and it is great for kids. If you are camping you will get passes to use the facilities (swimming pool etc) - but am sure you already know this.
Apparently it is close to Skegness and there are little villages around it for a wander and things to do.
Thorpe Park is close?
She says it will definitely be busy in August if course but if the weather is right the lovely beach is a big draw. She has booked to go for 10 days in August in her tourer!
