February is never the best month weather-wise but with half-term looming, we need a tiny glimmer of sunshine. The prospect of a week spent in soft play centers is not appealing. This half-term we plan to take the children away for a night or two. But if Hurricane Irene continues to blow unwitting sightseers into the English Channel, we will certainly rule out the seaside as an option. So, what we need is an affordable spa hotel with an indoor pool and outdoor activities close by. If you have any suggestions, please let us know and save us from the boredom of screaming toddlers, primary colored seating and insipid coffee!
