Hi, I am looking for a lovely hotel in the UK - within 3 to 4 hours drive of London to spend a week at. I have a 3 month old son. Ideally we would like something 4 or 5 star with a large swimming pool as we are both keen swimmers. We are looking for a hotel in a nice location with places to visit in the day and nice restaurants in the hotel or v nearby as we have the baby. can anyone recommend a suitable place?
Cowley Manor, The Elms (a luxury famil hotel so you can enjoy the MN discount) and Fowey Hall (again LFH) all meet your criteria - and can definitely recommend them. They're not cheap though but can do nice midweek deals...
Langdale Hotel and Country Club in the Lake District. Might be slightly too far for you but it's in a lovely area with a nice pool and you can get special offers if you sign up to their web site. Loads to do up there and the scenery is fab.
As well as a pool they have an on site health and beauty spa thing and various fitness activities. There is a small soft play area and some kids activities in the pool.
Worth a look at their site (don't know address but can google it of course).
