10 Family Days Out In Norfolk

I love to travel with the children, taking them to visit a new town or city is an exciting experience for us all. With it often just being me and them, UK breaks are so much more feasible than going abroad. In the days before children I wouldn’t have really considered the UK as a top holiday destination but since growing my brood I have really had my eyes open and can see really we have everything we need on our door steps (okay maybe a few hours drive) available to us. When we holiday in the UK my first…

Portsmouth Historic Dockyard – a great family day out

A few weeks ago now the girls and I were invited to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard for a fun family day out. Despite being just an hour away I had never heard of it! Everyone I seem to mention it to since says ‘oh yes we’ve been’ or ‘we’ve thought about going’. So I really must of been living under a rock! As I had no idea what we were expecting we went with a completely open mind and just got stuck straight in with exploring and activities. Portsmouth Historic Dockyard is massive! If like me you are newbie don’t be afraid to go…

36 hours in London with Three Children

The 6 week holidays is a long time for us parents to entertain the kids. I find it easiest to plan ahead and break it up with a few trips or bigger(er) days out here and there and then add in the play dates, park days & beach trips. Before you know it your schedule is pretty full and the kids are happy! So that is one of the reasons I booked in a couple of days away for the kids and I in London. It was our little girls trip and we had so much fun! Hotels in London aren’t…

National Trust Adventures – Brownsea Island

We’ve been off on more fun National Trust Adventures! This time we jumped on a boat and visited Brownsea Island for the day. Brownsea Island is just a short ferry ride from either Poole Quay or Sandbanks but that simple 10 minute boat ride is enough to make it the best day ever for children. We headed over on a gorgeous sunny August day to discover all the island had to offer. As someone who has lived  in the Poole area my whole life it’s shocking that this was only the second time I have ever visited. The last being a…

National Trust Adventures – Mottisfont

Our national trust adventures have continued over the summer holidays! Recently we took the girls over to Mottisfont to explore all that it has to offer. Mottisfont National Trust is located in Romsey, it boasts a gorgeous house and gallery set in some of the most beautiful riverside gardens I have ever seen. We have visited Mottisfont once before; we loved it but it was only a quick visit. I was desperate to get back at some point during these holidays to really enjoy it. It is just over an hours drive for us so it is one of those…
