First post update for new readers.
How would you like to join a wonderful group of 11 beloved DiSers (and wiggo) for a long weekend on the Welsh Coast in a nice big house? Join us for walking, swimming, board gaming, music playing, cooking - whatever you feel like!
There are two spaces left (twin rooms so you must be okay sharing)
Pick up / drop off available from Haverfordwest train station. I’m driving down from the North East so if you’re in the North I can probably give you a lift for part of your journey.
The accommodation cost is £111 per person and doesn’t need to be paid until April. If you’d like to come and the cost is an issue then let me know and I’ll see if we can work something out.
Any questions then drop them here or send me a DM
jk @iamwiggy we love you
Original post :
The idea: DiSers rent a large house somewhere rural in England, Scotland or Wales and hang out, relax, go on walks, play board games/sport/music, do crafting, communal cooking/dining - whatever you feel like.
There may not be enough interest to make this viable, but I think we would probably need to provisionally book somewhere in the next couple of months if looking at a large property so worth a go.
This is super tentative at this point, so I’ll keep polls anonymous.

Please only answer below if you’re potentially or definitely interested.
When would suit you?
How long would you want to go for?

Would you want to bring a non-DiS partner?
What kind of accommodation budget would you have?
- £15 - £20 per night

(Most of these places have shared and private rooms, so budget can potentially be played around with. There are also more austere options such as bunkhouses.)
