My husband I are visiting the area with our 13 year old daughter. . I have read about some great pubs for lunch or early dinners and wonder how accepted children are in these establishments? I'm not expecting to be able to bring her in at night while we hoist a few pints; (one of the great disadvantages of traveling with a child, beloved or not;) but we love pubs and would hate to miss the experience altogether on this trip. I know that there are some pubs with separate eating and drinking areas; but is it ever okay to bring a kid in while you have a drink, even in the daytime?
Morgana and other experts--I posted before that we were hoping to book a cottage in the Pickering, Helmsley, area; but as the airfares are still prohibitively high for June from our area we haven't booked any as we wouldn't want to lose our deposit if our plans had to change. I did have my heart set on letting a cottage for a week; but many of the ones that I liked are booked already that I'm wondering if this idea is going to be a false starter. We have also entertained the idea of splitting our time at B an B's in the Moors and the Dales. Would staying at Band B's help our chances of finding accomodation in June? Do cottages become booked faster than B and B 's? I haven't checked out many B and B's as my heart was set on a cottage. I've looked at so many cottages on the web that I swear that when we are driving around I will recognize some of them from memory! The prices for renting a cottage seem so reasonable that I'm hoping there will still be a few choice ones available when we book our flights hopefully by the end of this month.
Thanks for any insight.
