I think you've nailed our fears here. Everywhere I go in the UK seems to be an overcrowded and oversanitised space where the main concern is to sell you a hugely overpriced and disappointing sandwich in plastic wrap, washed down with a lukewarm disposable cup of dishwater with a tacky souvenir to take home with your fudge. No camping, no fires, please keep off the grass.
Nevertheless, we will visit the Lakes in the coming weeks and see if there's a way of making it work in this country. In parallel my wife and I agreed last night to rent a lakeside cabin with boat for a couple of weeks in Sweden next summer. Just working out the logistics of getting everyone there now. If the holiday works as a proxy for a "proper" lakeside S&A break I'll post my findings up on here. The idea is to find somewhere remote enough that the kids can eventually camp nearby the cabin without annoying anyone, with a lake big enough to sail on.
