We have been quite fortunate this year to get away with our little ones on a few family mini breaks. I do love a little break away, I love the planning, even the packing, both our little ones get really excited about going on an adventure and I do love a night or two in a hotel. It leaves me feeling refreshed and ready to tackle anything, it also makes us all appreciate our home a little bit more.
I have already been putting together a bit of a wish list of places in the UK to visit in 2015, yes I know it should be all about Christmas right now, but I do love to plan our travels well in advance to get the best deal and also to have something to look forward to.
But money is a big factor and getting away does not come cheap, however there are ways to save on accommodation and next year we plan to use Travelodge for some of our city breaks as they have refurbished over five hundred of their hotels with a modern and contemporary feel and above all they are family friendly. So with that in mind I have put together a little wish list of some of the places we would like to visit next year.
Windsor - Legoland is a must for next year. I am thinking a long weekend as I have always wanted to visit Windsor Castle and I have heard the shopping is good too.
Torquay, we love Devon and it has been a regular mini break for us over the last five years however we always tend to visit North Devon, next year we are heading South as super keen to explore the English Riviera.
York - Keen to head up North as I have always wanted to visit York and Harrogate so hoping a long weekend, as shopping in both cities looks wonderful maybe My Mister and I will do this city break kiddy free??!
Newquay - I haven't been for such a long time and Travelodge have a hotel right on the sea front with some great places to visit close by and also it's a good base to visit so many lovely places in the area, Padstow, St Ives and Eden Project are on the list.
Hastings - We love Sussex and had a lovely mini break in Brighton earlier this year and keen to visit more of the area, Hastings is another seaside town I have always wanted to visit, a good friend of mine stayed there in the half term and said it was lovely, with sweet cafes and shops it's definitely on the list for a long weekend.
