After we get scan results a break might be nice but where?

I think after whatever happens at the next scan D and I could do with having a night in a hotel somewhere to get our heads round whatever news we get.

We're in London, don't want to travel far, no more than 2 hours drive and not expensive and suitable for us and for Lottie.

I was thinking possibly Brighton but not sure where to stay. pellirocca great but might not be massively child friendly.

Any other suggestions?

Hotel du Vin is lovely, and they have great rooms and yummy food.

Whitstable has a nice hotel, The Grand, and the Oyster House rents out adorable converted fishermen's huts on a B & B basis.
If you feel the need for quiet space to be by the sea there might be something suitable in Orford/Dunwich/Southwold? The Suffolk and North Essex coasts are so beautiful.

its the hotel continental marina that lets out the fishermans huts, think they have changed their name from the grand

try the priory inn in glousterhsire... it has fab restaurant and loads of things for kids and bay listening facilities so you can have a nice meal together...

Priory Inn

My SIL went and she said it was lovely... it has ahd loads of reviews in guardian and other travel mags -- the owner used to be chef at Gary Rhoedes restaurant...

Eastwell manor - is beautiful

It has lovely self catering cottages attached to the hotel which would give you a bit more space for Lottie. The spa is fabulous and the grounds just wonderful.

If you fancy an outing with Lottie then Howletts or Port Lympne zoos are fairly close by.

Dinner is yummy too and I think they have baby listening at the hotel!

Suffolk is lovely if you can find a good b&b .. there's a fabulous farm park (Easton Farm Park) an otter and deer sanctuary, a safari park with a little train that takes you on a tour, or you can walk round plus loads of beaches (either pebbles or mixed)

its about 2.5 hours from SE london (straight up A12)
