Ferry prices to add in though and a bit of a long way for those up North, something around the lower Midlands would be better for most I think.

Good find Nadia!
Like Kiz says - plus ferry crossing and kinda limited on daytime driving roads.
If we could find somewhere like that in the Cotswolds for £25 a night sorta-thing it'd be a bargain and we'd have some amazing roads at our back-door :)

Bit more middle of the country. Says from £3600 for a three night break. If we based it on that, split over the 32 people it sleeps it's £112.50 per head for the stay.

I've never been to Isle of Wight so wasn't sure on costs but that sort of thing would be brilliant. The website it's on has a good range of places. Think it'd be good to find somewhere like that more middle of the country.

Obviously we would need to get an idea of numbers because finding a place that sleeps 40 would be a waste of time and cost more than it'd need to. So perhaps a list of people who are interested if we can work out dates etc would be good.

Tewkesbury or Evesham or that kind of area would be ideal. Blast into South Wales or the Malverns for a run. Pretty central to most :)

Agreed Stripey!
Who says it has to be about canvas and hovering over a toilet that someone else has excreted all over!

I'm up for a bit of luxury and I know Rach won't need any convincing! :D

Cold showers? :laughing

I can do slumming but I don't mind a bit of luxury either if I'm on holiday :)

Yorkshire Dales would be an excellent location for this as well - amazing roads, low population density, very picturesque, excellent beer and the home of Wensleydale cheese. Even from the depths of Essex it's only a 4-5hr drive.
