I have been looking at booking a holiday cottage for M and me to go on, taking the dogs of course with us. However, I am just not sure where to go!
So far I have been looking at Devon, Cornwall and the Cotswold. I have been to Devon and Cornwall many times when I was a kid on family holidays, and I used to love going on the Lynton and Lynmouth Funicular Railway, and the long walk up and down the cliffs. M has never been to that part of the UK, so I thought it may be nice for him to experience it.
Part of me thinks we should go to the Highlands of Scotland or the Brecons in South Wales as they are places I have not been to. I have been all over North Wales, but never the South, and I have only ever been skiing in Scotland, so being up a mountain in winter with the sole purpose of skiing I never got to see any other part of the country. Devon and Cornwall call to me as it will be a lot warmer, but then again with the British weather, one can never tell what it will be like.
I was also considering going back to Rome at the end of September, beginning of October as we both love the place, and would move there in a heartbeat if we had the chance. But with any foreign break, we would have to leave the dogs in the kennels which is about £160 for the week, which is money that we could save by staying in the UK and taking the girls with us, and it saves them being stressed too, so a bit of a win-win if we stay here.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated…
