I've posted on several other trip advisor forums trying to get some ideas on how to spend a two week family vacation in England August 2009. We are a family of four: husband/wife and two teenagers. First visit to the U.K. We'll arrive and depart from London and will stay there four nights. The rest of the trip is up in the air. I had originally thought about the Devon/Cornwall coast...maybe taking train to Bath then train to Truro stay a few nights someplace like the Tresanton Hotel, then driving through the New forest to Portsmouth, back to London and fly home.
But, as I've said on many of these forums, I hate crowds and don't want to be driving on unfamiliar roads in unfamiliar places, several people have recommended I check out the Yorkshire Coast, Northumberland, Scarborough, etc. I would be interest in taking a train from London and not renting a car until absolutely necessary.
Just starting to get my feet wet looking at this particular part of your beautiful country, and am hoping for some travel suggestions, hotel recommendations, etc.
Hope I'm posting to the correct forum.
