Local Attractions

Planning your day is all part of the fun of a holiday for any family or group.

However, it can become a challenge for parents and carers of those with special needs.

Tolerance in a non judgemental manner can often be an ideal but is rarely a reality.

The stresses on parents and carers when planning holiday trips can be daunting.

We understand this only too well.

Visitors tell us that the pace of life here is just ideal.

There is plenty to see and to do, but there are seldom any queues at local attractions.

Even in the high summer, you can still find miles of solitary beaches, where you can relax and enjoy so much open space.

With feedback from our visitors, we have put together a selection of just some of the local attractions in our region.

Places that show tolerance and respect for all individuals.
