Just this really any suggestions. No wifi would be a bonus in my opinion but probably won't go down well with everyone else. It would be lovely to have a short break and some family time. Thinking north, northwest of England or the lower half of Scotland as don't want to travel for too long. Need either a hotel with (2 single beds and a main bed) in a place with options other than trailing round the shops which my husband loves but the rest of us are sick of or a cottage/apartment, Aparthotel with similar bed arrangements. Any ideas? Most places I have thought of seem to be either a long weekend (and we can't go the first weekend and the second weekend they have to be back in school) or for a full week (and hubbie doesn't have that much leave and prices are high with half term). Many thanks

Edinburgh? It has some great things to do. Camera Obscura, the castle, lots of galleries etc. If you want something rural the Lake District is a favourite of our dc.

Thanks LoisWilkersonsLastNerve. Hubbie and I love Edinburgh and have been a couple of times with the kids but the trouble is DH loves shopping and drives the rest of us mad with it. So maybe Lakes or Northumberland. The trouble is most places I know of (CP, Grace Darling Holidays) are either weekend breaks Friday to Monday or midweek breaks Monday to Fri. I was hoping someone would come up with something specific that I hadn't already thought of. What's Hoseasons or Haven like are they very chavvie anyone? I thought of maybe trying Forest Holidays but they all seem to be long weekend or midweek also very pricey and it's unclear what their is to do so likely to be quite boring unless I roped in some family or friends but would rather not.
