Seville Oct term - train no car hire

I've booked return flights to Seville for the October half term with DH and DC aged 12 and 10.

We won't hire a car so does anyone think this itinerary sounds ok, by train? I'd love to go to Granada but conscious the DC could do with some down time and the cultural sights would wear thin.

Also recommendations of hotels with pools would be great!

Day 1 Friday : arrive Seville after very early start from Gatwick.
Day 1 - 3 Friday - Sunday: explore Seville
Day 4 Monday : day trip to train to Cordoba. Return to Seville same day
Day 5 Tuesday - travel to Cadiz by train
Day 5 - 6 Tuesday - Wednesday: Cadiz
Day 7: Thursday return to Seville by train
Day 8 Friday - early flight back to Gatwick

No day trips here

3 nights and all will be spent in Seville. Will just be using our legs to get around.

did Barcelona this year with them and was absolutely superb

key is not to cram too much in.

Sounds good. A few years ago, we did something similar and it all worked great

You don't want or need a car in most of those places anyway (not sure about Cadiz but I know it's an easy train from Seville).

The cake counter at the McDonalds (yes really) in Seville railway station is a sight to behold!

Save Granada for a separate trip and combine with Malaga city, Nerja/Frigiliana, perhaps Ronda, and El Caminito del Rey.
