Good value family holidays for this summer

Recommended Posts

I’m currently looking at options for a week’s holiday with my girlfriend and my 6 year old daughter and wonder if anyone has any advice or recommendations.

 

needs to be mid August - thinking 8-15

looking for a week

needs to be affordable, and so thinking UK might be best option. Caravan or chalet type place.

 

ive had a look at a place called Ty Mawr near Conway because it’s near the zipworld place ive wanted to take her to for a while, but reviews are hit and miss around cleanliness.

 

im near leeds, so if staying UK would probably think about wales, lakes, Dorset or Devon.

 

having said that, somewhere cheap-ish abroad might be worth a look too.

 

any thoughts appreciated.

 

cheers.

Weymouth is nice 

If you drive(or even if you don't local trains where good) you have monkey world, Bovingdon Tank museum, Weymouth Sea Life Adventure Park are good. Plenty of houses and cottages for private rent and if you drive it might be cheaper to book one a few miles from the town

Ask A Red. He has places. But take your own bins.

Would you want someone called Spunkmouse staying in your house? Might involve some unpleasant cleaning up.

At least it’s not Spunkhorse though, I suppose.

Llyn peninsula in north-west Wales is one of the loveliest places in the world. Go there. It’s ace.

I've heard good things about Birkenhead.

 

Screw Birkenhead.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Camping on New Brighton beach is where it’s at.

Flamingoland is always good. We go every year for a week as a side to our 2 week holiday - but not this year as the Mrs and kids have decided on a two week £9K holiday to Florida!!!!

On the upside, we go a week on Sunday

You're better going abroad. Guaranteed that if you book a summer holiday in England, you'll be playing board games in your caravan like in that episode of Father Ted.

    • Far more realistic reaction to that news. 
    • Jurgen Klopp has given hope to the likes of Xherdan Shaqiri and Adam Lallana as the club braces itself for a heavy schedule of games in the next month.

      With the return of the Champions League as well as the League Cup, squad rotation will be required so that players stay fresh.

      Speaking ahead of the fixture against Arsenal on Saturday evening, Klopp said those on the periphery will get their chance.

      Liverpool Echo reported Klopp as saying:

      “Every year is the same and always in the same moment at the beginning of the season.

      “You want to have that, and if you don't have it then you have injuries from pre-season and that's the last thing you want.

      “ Still, I would say in this moment, Shaq didn't play enough, he is in a really good shape. 

      “Adam didn't play enough, in a really good shape. Dejan didn't play enough, in a really good shape.

      “These are completely normal things. Some others might also say that they don't play enough.

      “But we have to prepare for a season. 

      “At the start of the season without intensity, you try to get rhythm, you try to get stability at the beginning. It's not a moment where you change too many things.

      “Then it will happen automatically and in the next (few) weeks you have to (change things) and everything will be fine then.  

      Klopp said he was happy to give his stars a couple of days off during the week after a busier than normal workload to start the season which has included the Community Shield and the Super Cup.

      “ I was really happy for the boys to give them the two days off. 

      “We didn't plan it, but it's easier when you win so we didn't tell them beforehand.

      “Somebody needs to remind me that it wouldn't be a bad idea to have a day off!

      “I had Sunday off, Monday I was working. Sunday I watched football, the Chelsea v Leicester game. That was nice.”

      Klopp is not putting too much emphasis on a clash against a top six opponent as he rightly says that every game is important if you want to have ultimate success come the end of the season.

      “I had a couple of years ago a really good record in the mini-league then didn't pick up enough points in the other games.

      “Then last year the record was not bad but was obviously for people not good enough because we drew a lot.

      “ We have to get as many points as possible and we cannot decide where we get them. 

      “We're Liverpool and every week we have to try to win, and that's what we will do.

      “I don't think this result on Saturday will be the decisive result of the season.”

    • Considering they were playing in Warsaw I'd assumed it was something more broadly anti-Catholic.  Pathetic really.
    • I think it's pretty clear they've issued that because as long as we're still actually under contract with New Balance it would be in extremely poor taste to issue a statement saying we're planning to switch a year from now.   Sort of colours the relationship with New Balance, and we still have a whole year to go (minimum) in that relationship. I expect it's sorted behind closed doors, but won't be made public until some respectable time, probably in the spring some time when the NB deal is about to expire.
