So I'm back to work tomorrow & really feel the need to book a bit of Sunshine for August to keep me going through the cold winter months. I tried to book last minute last year but ended up getting so stressed & spending far more than I expected for a last minute deal. I'm a teacher so it has to be August or very end of July. Isobelle will be 2 1/2 by then but seems to be a good traveller so far. Am looking for a beach holiday but with possibly some things to do locally. I love the heat but for the sake of my toddler & my hubby probably shouldn't aim for somewhere too hot! We went to Santa Eulalia, Ibiza last year which was great but that was basically all we could find last minute that wasn't clubbing, now the choices are endless so would love some ideas of great places to go that won't break the bank. Probably looking at self catering,
PS~ If you've been somewhere lovely, please tempt with with a photo as I think we all need a bit of sunshine at the moment!!

I would highly recommend Majorca i'm general....so family friendly but still lots to see and do. I've been twice and stayed in both Alcudia and Cala d'or and both are ideal for young families. Accommodation is in abundance and flight times not too long.

Another vote for Majorca, we took M to Sa Coma last year and loved it. We stayed at the Coma Grab hotel which is a Thomson family hotel. She loved the kids club (2hrs per day) and we enjoyed those two hours to relax. It's close to the beach which is lovely, M loved the little tourist train that went around and we found the restaurants nearby very family friendly. I'd go back again x

There's also loads of flights to Majorca so you should get decent flight times no problem too.

Probably not the sort of holiday you're looking for (unless we have a hot summer!) but we've just booked to go to the New Forest. The thought of taking F on a plane, and him not wanting to sit still for 2 seconds, scares the hell out of me so we decided to stay in the UK. I'd love to pluck up the courage to go abroad with him though...

We are the same WG. We're going to the Isle of Lewis with W. He'll be 13 months in June. Loads of beaches there and plenty to do too. Going abroad with him scares me. We hope to eventually though.

Thanks ladies, I will check out Majorca. We were lucky that we saved a lot of air miles (before it became Avois) so we got free flights to Rome & Stockholm (to stay with friends) which we went to when Isobelle was 3 & 6 months. We then joined my hubby when he went to Romania for a week on work when she was 9 months. She was fine on the plane & the holidays I've looked at in the past have been the same price (or even cheaper) for a holiday abroad then a holiday in this country. Will probably stay in the uk when she's a bit older & might be trickier on a flight.

Good thing is she'll have her own seat on the plane now which def made a difference here, we went to Portugal when she was about 15 months and having her on our laps with someone else sitting beside us was difficult.
WG we went to New Forest last summer and had a great break :)

Only thing I would be cautious with is with booking is I know you're TTC...check individual companies policies on flying in pregnancy in case you should hopefully be heavily pregnant in the summer :-)
WG - although we had a lovely time in Corfu in October I wish we'd waited another year til he was at least 2.5. We'll not think about holidays abroad again until this 1 is at least 3/4....a few years to enjoy exploring our own beautiful island! ;-) x
