any of these any good?

triplets Fri 01-Aug-08 22:32:11

All look lovely but all way over my poor budget but thank you. Just 4 nights somewhere would be good, around £100 a night. Shame we can`t go to France, Mac nurse says NO!

how about these

hello hilltop cottage in middleton by wirksworth is nice its a 2 bed cottage one room has double bed and the other has 2 singles with room for a cot, maybe you could take a roll out bed or 2 of them could top and tail.

if you google the cottage you should get the details, if you email nicola direct, explain your situation and bet she will do you a fab deal.

weve been a few times and never charges us more than £30 a night.

staying here

triplets Sun 03-Aug-08 23:43:47

Have given up girls, it would have meant going tomorrow until Thurs, couldn`t find something nice and hear the weather is not going to be good anyway. So its kids and housework as usual! Thank you all for looking xx

triplets I posted on the other thread did you get anything with Parkdean or Park resorts.

triplets Sun 03-Aug-08 23:57:42

Thank ypu Sebs, yes Park resorts had a couple of offers but they were too far away, Yorkshire or Wales. Its really to late now, unless we find something from say Thurs -Sun, hard at this time of the year. We have to be back Sun for hospital on Mon morning.

My MIL has a lodge in the North Lake District that she occasionally lets out and she hasn't had many takers at the moment. Is that too far for you I can ask her.
I know she charges less than £100 per night plus elec. It sleeps 4 in beds but large lounge for one in a sleeping bag?

Woody area and lake.

I have no idea if anyone is in it at the mo, if you want to email me legoates @ tiscali .co. uk
I can ring her tomorrow morning and ring you? Its in a lovely place won't put too many details on here as its her private holiday home but she does let it out to people from BILs work for long weekends.

Worth a try? Don't get too excited yet though cos I've no idea whether it will be available!

DP will prob be really annoyed at me sending my 'internet wierdos' to his mums grin

Flibbertyjibbet Sun 03-Aug-08 23:59:53

Oh, just xposted with you saying Yorkshire and wales too far away... MILs lodge is quite a bit further.


Hope you find something.

Agree with another poster try Cottages4U, I used to work with a chap whose friend worked there and a lot of the cottages are available for midweek breaks.

Park resorts have some 4 night breaks tomorrow in Essex, Kent and East Anglia.

triplets Mon 04-Aug-08 00:22:03

I cannot get organized now to go tomorrow anyway, as DH has to pick up important prescription from docs at 12pm, would hardly be worth it then for 4 days, never mind, but thanks again.
