My husband and I want to go away for a week or so in October. The only places I've been on holiday in the UK are Butlins Bognor Regis and Edinburgh, so I'm a bit lost


Criteria:

- B&B (or cheap hotel, but we're on a budget here!) with veggie friendly breakfasts
- at least two veggie restaurants so we aren't stuck with boring food every evening
- by the sea
- a few tourist attractions for something to do

Brighton seems the obvious choice, but I think accommodation might be too pricey for a week


Please help, fellow VBers!

How about further along the coast - Portsmouth, or the Isle of Wight? I'm not sure about veggie b and b's or restaurants, but you could check on happy cow. If you want further afield you could try south/west Wales.

I don't go away very often in this country so I am not much help, sorry!

We <3 Bournemouth (we even got married there). Lots of nature parks/beaches/forests, etc. In the summer, it's wicked expensive, but by September the prices are a lot better. I've been hoping we can take an easy journey in October while IS and I are still a family of two, and Bournemouth is on the short list.


We had a nice time at a B&B in North Wales too, though we weren't near the sea. There is a nice veg B&B right on the coast of Cornwall that we nearly went to for Easter, but it didn't work out. It's not so cheap, but it looks amazing: http://www.coastcornwall.co.uk/

That looks ace Jen! I will definitely be paying them a visit within the next 12 months. Thanks for the link. You can go and stay in the chalet there with the wonderful sea view for £235 in October Gemma. Get it booked!

I found a hotel in Brighton that would be under £400 for the week, but that place in Cornwall looks wonderful. I will consult with husband over what he prefers

It's done and booked, I am very excited


Unfortunately the cheapest option I found for public transport was just under £200 so it looks like I will be driving... even with a 600 mile round trip the petrol will be half the price of the train or coach. Sad

That always makes me sad, when it's cheaper to drive or fly than to coach or train


Still, fun little road trip for you

Don't know if it will help Earthling, but we often find that booking legs of our train journeys instead of a whole trip works out cheaper. It can take a bit of doing though. I think there might be some tips for cheap travel too on the MSE boards. www.moneysavingexpert.com (click on forums and there's one for UK travel in there)
