    Looking for a short break within the UK. Anything nice this time of the year?

    Me and the Mrs are looking for a short break, a couple of days or so within the UK. We've been to London recently, so we're taking that out the equation.

    Ideally we'd like some beaches / countryside, but the weather doesnt seem very good at this time of the year.

    Can anyone recommend anything?

    Check out Groupon and KGBdeals. They often have some great deals.

    If you're looking for something quiet then I like it here but it may be a bit too far out of your way.

    My wife and I just got back from a little break there, it was really nice. Cost us £79 a night. That includes breakfast and use of surfboards and wetsuits. The hotel is immaculate and the owners are really nice people. The beach is really clean and there are quite a few decent restaurants in the area. We went for a honeymoon break before New York in November and will definitely return

    Not sure where you are based but we love the Lake District. We have stayed in Windermere for the past 3 years for a short break. The scenery is beautiful and there is plenty to do. A lovely B&B is greystone cottage and the landlady is super!

    Thanks for the advice guys. I'm based in Birmingham, but it wouldnt be much of a holiday if we stayed locally.

    Anyways, I would love feedback for Wales / Blackpool. Yes quite a contrast I know. As I said the Mrs is into water / countryside, but does not want to go to the middle of nowhere.

    Regards,

    Have you looked into the Isle of Wight? Mind, don't go during the festival as the ferry tickets will be expensive.
    It really feels like a holiday as you get on the ferry (both car and foot ferries) and cross the water.
    The weather over there is also lovely with its little micro-climate making things a tad warmer than over on the mainland most of the time.
    There are lots of things to do for all ages, and it's lovely.
