We are a family from HK with 2 boys (aged 9 and 3) and are thinking of spending around 5-7 nights in the area around mid-end August. Given the age of my smaller boy, we can only manage short walk (around an hour). There seems quite a number of choices to stay and not sure whether we should stay in the west side (say Seatle) which we might also visit Lake District, or Richmond, where it is also close to North York Moors. Our interests are steam-train / horse-trekking / animals (farm or wildlife) / hand-on museum etc. Would appreciate recommendation on things to do / whereabout to stay etc.
Also, it seems that most cottages have min stay requirement with a turn-over day on Saturaday for July / August. Would anyone also have recommendation on farm / self-catering cottages that might be more flexible on arrival day ?
Many thanks !
