Escaping the festive season

Dear Lazyweb, any recommendations for a relaxing break over the so-called festive season? Ideally somewhere local to southwest England, to avoid excessive travel misery. Should be free of humbuggery such as piped muzak, tinsel and lights, cut-down or artificial trees, or fat men in red and white.

I had contemplated taking the ferry from Plymouth to Spain or (second choice) France. But they’re not even running over an extended silly season, so that’s a non-starter. Bah, humbug.

  1. Someone has to suggest it: how about camping around lapland somewhere? 😉

    I suppose there’s always Wales. I hear they almost have a mountain down there. 😉

  2. Why don’t you simply stay at home? Beautiful skys this morning for those who weren’t in the land of nod! Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

  3. Joe’s right about staying at home. Dartmoor was lovely on Sunday and no tinsel in sight. Mind you, I did meet a fat man with a beard… 🙂
