I checked Norfolk but it's a bit pricier to stay, I'm not sure what our plan is but I've been working on my own room in most cases. I've got that Sykes Cottages place bookmarked that Andy shared recently so that might be an option.
My mates off up to Whitley bay next week. He went last year and included a trip around Hartlepool football club and the brewery. I knew there'd be summat he'd like up there.

I've heard good things about the brewery up there so I'm looking forward to it.

Worst thing about it all is the only week we're all free happens to be my sodding birthday. I usually like to be on my todd on my birthday

Can recommend Sanders Yard in Whitby, just watch your head if you book the attic room, great breakfasts

Sykes are usually really dear because they take a massive commission.

Try HomeAway.co.uk - used to be called owners direct. Some good stuff on there

So you've been on a plane?

Yes 3 weeks ago, it was fine

I understand some people may still be a bit edgy or have vulnerable relatives so not everyone's situation is the same but I've no issue with taking a flight, like I say I flew 3 weeks ago and I will be flying again in 4 weeks.

They sell black ice cream in Whitby. To avoid producing what looks like lumps of coal from your arse for a few days, I'd recommend sticking to plain vanilla ice cream.

Freddie; you could drop acid and spend the day searching for dinosaur footprints at Burniston Bay. Then, do as I did and climb one of the cliffs to take a dump while looking out at the majestic North Sea. Careful though, there is a footpath at the top and the last thing you need when sculpting fudge is some old dear disturbing the moment.

You and your mate's can come and stay with me for free. I've just had this sudden urge to have a house full of people.

Sod Yorkshire, especially at that time of the year.

Get yourself to London and enrich your mind in the museums, galleries and culture.

We were there last weekend and it was brilliant.

No masses of foreign tourists swanning around in the way, but plenty of places open, dying to have your custom.

Both the Natural History and Science Museums were open with free ticket bookings to allow social distancing which covers one day, then we did Greenwich, the Cutty Sark, Royal Observatory and Tower Bridge on the Sunday without the queues.

Fantastic, if a little eerie without the usual hustle and bustle.

If indoor things isn't your bag, then the Lake District is awesome at any time of the year, but it is very weather dependent and of course the days are getting far shorter by then.

Just booked a weekend in Edinburgh for the Mrs 30th birthday.

With COVID everything is going to have to be a little regimented (which usually isn't my thing) but I suppose needs must. So far:

Friday - Travel up there, about 5 hours so have a bit of brekkie then set off. Check in for hopefully around 03:00pm. Going to a restaurant called Makars which has good reviews on tripadvisor.
Saturday - Booked in the the national museum for 10:00am, then on to Edinburgh Castle at 03:30pm. Then off to another restaurant called The Cellar Door in the evening.
Sunday - Edinburgh Zoo for 10:30am, nothing booked in the evening so far but I fancy visiting Mary Kings Close or Blair Street/South Bridge. Then off to a Greek restaurant again in the evening.

If anyone can recommend anything else I could try and squeeze in, I'm all ears.

Get yourself a hopper ticket for the tour buses. These allow you to go on any tour bus and are great value for money.

The Yacht Britannia is a good visit too. You might need advance tickets nowadays though.
