We are planning a bit of a road trip having had to cancel our USA holiday due to dd contracting swine flu. Have decided to visit various friends and to spend a few nights here and there in lovely kid friendly hotels with a pool! We are going to visit my aunt in Blackpool but can anyone suggest anywhere around middle of England or en route from London where we might stop off for a night or two? We are happy to spend money on a really nice hotel with a pool for the kids - and a bit of luxury preferably!! Any ideas v. welcome! Thanks
London to Blackpool is, as you've probably worked out, not that long, you could do it in about 3 or 4 hours BUT if you want to make quite a dogleg, you could go via the Cotswolds. Charingworth Manor just outside Chipping Campden is a lovely country house hotel with an indoor pool and spa & Chipping Camden is an olde worlde village with tea shops & nice countryside.
