Hi! All!

am detremined again this year that we are to have a short night break for the four of us... last year we rented a little log cabin in Derbyshire and it was wonderful! (dd still talks about it and calls it the Little Crooked House!)

this time i am looking for somewhere by the sea... prob in wales (as this would be the closest for minimum time of travel! - we live in Brum)... a self catering cottage... where there is ample opportunity to eat lots of fresh seafood!!! and obiously very child friendly - of course! a toddler and a baby will be in tow!

anyone know of such a holiday retreat?

am thinking of going in autumn...

thank you all!

Never been but Padstow in Cornwall is supposed to be pretty, bijou and has several Rick Stein restaurants serving good fish...

i would love padstow... but since it's just a short break we are after... i could imagine the travelling would be quite long... in laws live in north devon and that takes us 3 hours on a good run!

thanks anyway!

Bea I haven't stayed at this cottage but have stayed at some others owned by these people in Carmarthenshire and they are great. Not really flash but very very comfortable, well equipped and nicely furnished. This one looks like it is a fab location and we are thinking of going there sometime.

/\This{} is the one we stayed in at Easter, I suspect it will be fairly similar in style.

Beds comfy, linen soft etc.
