I can't believe I haven't started this thread off earlier!

Where are you off to? What have you planned?

I need some ideas. I'd thought I'd be going nowhere as I'm still juggling credit card debt getting my garden cleared so can't really even afford travel but a friend says she was planning going away for about 3 days/nights B&B in May, the week before half term. She suggested a B&B in Southbourne but is happy to go somewhere dog friendly so Tizzie can come.

Does anyone have any ideas of CHEAP places to stay for 2 friends where dogs are welcome?

Sorry, can't help

 

We have nothing planned other than a three-hour flight to see the Northern Lights in February.

We are having four nights away at Feb half term with my dad and step mum in Northumberland - hoping I might get to see the northern lights there.

Unusually for us we have a week already booked in August! We are off to a luxury cottage in Derbyshire with my parents and sisters (and families), and my dad is paying for the accommodation! He wants to celebrate his retirement with us. :)

I used to love it when our cottages were rented by a big family group so that everyone staying was from the same family - it was such a joy to see 2, 3 or even 4 generations enjoying a holiday together! :wub:

 

Although we don't have the cottages any more, we do have a spare (double) room and another room where we can put a mattress or two if anyone fancies a break in beautiful Cornwall and we love having visitors. xxxx

I'm going to a cliff top holiday home on the South Coast: https://www.amberley...rmorants/487924 There are not many places which are willing to let all of us stay, without it being set up for 12 people and it costing a fortune, but I know the owner!  :icon_mrgreen:

Going to Mexico in February, staying with my sister whose house was built to include a separate apartment. People on Facebook can search for Casa Lola in Tulum, Mexico & see where we'll be staying :)

Well, in the course of today, I've one holiday booked and likely to have a second one booked in the not too distant future!

The booked one is a short midweek break in a caravan in the next county. I'm going with a friend and it'll be her birthday the day we go. I'm really looking forward to it.

We've got Spring Harvest booked and a provisional booking for camping in the summer. We're also off to centreparcs in a couple of weeks just for the weekend as MIL's christmas presebr to us.

I'm on Aslan's side even if there isn't any Aslan to lead it. I'm going to live as like a Narnian as I can even if there isn't any Narnia. [Puddleglum]
