    I haven't been on holiday in the UK since I was 16, blimey.

    Me and a few mates are thinking of going to stay around Castle Howard next month. Not a big drive from the likes of Whitby for a day trip n that. Hopefully we can find something a bit secluded and cheap.

    South Wales is nice.

    A londoners idea of a nice holiday place will depend on how much rent you can get for it.

    Most of the shit that washes up on our beaches came from inland.

    I saw a programme on that once. Sometimes takes years but even stuff dumped in the middle of America works its way down the rivers into the sea.

    Blackpool is a hovel. I know you hear that a lot but it really is desperately deprived. A terrible place. I worked with a bloke from there and he couldn’t wait to get out, anywhere.

    I’m in Gran Canaria at the moment, would love to retire here.

    The last time I was living in Blandford, 03-07, some of the kids covered up part of the 'Welcome to Weymouth' sign and replaced it with 'Welcome to Weya Napa'. This made the local paper only for a reader to respond that the actual name for Weymouth is Weybiza, Wareham is Wara Napa, Dorchester is Dorch Vegas and Blandford is Blan Diego.

    We still call those places by their real names.

    Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.

    There were the temporary fences you get around building sites snd posters up with artist's impressions of what the new development was going to be like. Guess it never got built then.

    The 100 steps down and up between the car park and beach were loads of fun with a bag full of beach paraphernalia.

    The step must have gone and have been replaced by a steep road, got down to the beach and just as my arse touched the sand the wife remembered she'd left the tent pegs in the car.... so it was back up the steep hill to retrieve them for one of us.... rock, scissors paper is the only fair way to settle such a dispute... I lost and was blowing out my arse walking back up said hill.

    Been to Looe and Polperro today, all of us enjoyed both.

    Dorchester is Casterbridge.

    Everyone knows that.

    We take the kid up to Dalby Forest and stay in a pod on a campsite. Unfortunately it is shut until April due to the pandemic but that is secluded and cheap, she also doesn’t up her prices in summer. I’m sure it’s £70 for two nights and the three of us can sleep in the pod. You have a shower block etc.. at night you can’t see anything but stars. Only 20 miles from Whitby.

    No good for this year but for future ref I’ll dig out the link.

Had two teenagers laugh at my 4 year old daughter for falling over and cutting her knees quite bad, they were proper openly mocking her which I found real strange, you dont get that shite standard of people even in Skeg.

    Other than that we are enjoying Cornwall so far as a first trip down here in just shy of 25 years.

    Any places you'd recommend beaches or otherwise? Like you we dont want the chavvy bits, we only went to Newquay to see what it's all about but mainly for the sea life centre as it's good for the kids to learn stuff like that

    Hi Barry, I live nearby white acres.

    If your looking for quiet beaches you may not find them at the moment, here's a small list of beaches that maybe quieter on the North coast but no guarantees.

    Porthcothan
    Treyarnon
    Trevone

    All have a small cafe, parking if you go earlier or later in the day, no Arcades pubs are nearby, special mention for the Tredrea Inn, Porthcothan not for its inner beauty for its views.
    Have a good time

    I would also add that I'd recommend where we are staying

    https://www.darwinescapes.co.uk/park...ws-resort-spa/

    It's actually just across the road from white acres and is the first place I've ever been that actually looks anything like as advertised.

    I can see why people make the extra effort to come down this way from afar. Bit more money than say Skeg but so much better.

    Ah there used to be a big car park at the top of the cliff, then a load of concrete steps down to the bottom, then a walk past the 'building site' to the beach.
    There was a road but it was only for site vehicles.

    Looe and Polperro are lovely. It was near there, in a farm house, we used to stay when I was a kid.

    There's lots of other places like them dotted around the coast.

    Shell Bay on the Isle of Purbeck, Dorset is a great place to be when the trippers have wended their way back to their hotels, campsites and wherever.
    It is the time of day when we photographers enjoy ourselves.
