Hope you don't mind a few questions!
Just booked a last minute break for the first 2 weeks of August in a cabin on Belleu Lake in East Wakefield. Looks great on the net so really looking forward to it. Problem is I know nothing about the area.
I'm travelling with my wife and 2 yound children (3+1) and while the plan is to relax by the lake mostly, as we are there for 2 weeks, I want to organise things to do (especially things that are toddler friendly).
I appreciate that a lot of this will be covered before and I am about to start looking through the forum, but if anyone has any good tips they can share, i would appreciate a reply as I don't have a lot of time to organise this now.
I'm travelling from Ireland so don't know anything about the area so any info on the following would be great:
a) Local attractions within an hour or two drive (esp for kids but also for grown ups)
b) Anything even further away that is special and should be visited considering I'm not usually in this part of the world?
c) Will there be many options for eating out with family?
d) What is grocery shopping like, where is the nearest large supermarket?
e) What is the best town in the are to go to for other shopping?
f) My wife loves outlet shopping so I have to ask if any near also?
G) What is the normal weather for first 2 weeks in August?
h) Will the water in the lakes be warm enough for kids to enjoy?
Even if you caould answer one of these questions I would appreciate a reply
Thanks in advance for you help
