My DC are 8 and 6 and we tend to do city breaks in October so there are plenty of indoor activities. We’ve been to London a couple of times (booked a travelodge on outskirts). Last year we stayed near Manchester in an air bnb and the weather was awful but we had a great time at a couple of museums, trip to chill factore and swimming. On sunny days we did visited Blue Peter gardens and Gulliver's theme park and just explored. We look for somewhere with a garden or near a park. This year we are thinking about Liverpool or Cardiff.
Blue stone near Tenby in Wales. Bit like centre parcs but you can escape and go to the beach.
We are in this quandary too. Don't fancy CP. Thinking maybe somewhere with a castle? Windsor then LEGOLAND? Sorry, my phone always puts it in upper case!)
Or, a cottage / lodge in Warwickshire? Do Warwick castle and mooch around Stratford?
DH fancies Northumberland but we've done it already. I dunno. It's a minefield!
Any bright ideas for UK trips - maybe 4 or 5 days? Struggling to think what will work in what could be awful weather. Assume Centre Parcs would be better in Spring/Summer? Something an active 6 year old boy would enjoy. Any inspiration/ suggestions gratefully received!
