Last weekend we enjoyed a day out at the National Trust’s Hardwick, well except for the behaviour of one of my children but the less said about him the better 😉 Hardwick is just off junction 29 of the M1 and it really easy to get to, it is an absolutely stunning place so really worth a visit if you are thinking about it. I have so many photographs to share with you all so this post might go on for a while 😉 Read more
On Easter Sunday we went to the National Forest Adventure Farm for the day. We had a wonderful day out, there was so much to do. The Easter Eggstravaganza which runs until 10th April is fabulous! The kids loved the treasure hunt and their trip through the woods to visit the Easter bunny in his house 🙂 Read more
I was very lucky to grow up in the heart of the Peak District a few miles away from Chatsworth, we used to visit the gardens, farmyard and playground all the time as kids and we used to love to drive through the grounds and watch the Deer but until this weekend I had never stepped foot inside the house. Boy oh boy have I missed a treat! Read more
While we were on holiday in Pembrokeshire a couple of weeks ago we visited Folly Farm Adventure Park & Zoo for the day. Folly Farm have twice been the winner of Wales Tourist Board’s ‘Best Day Out in Wales’ and once the Pembrokeshire Tourism’s ‘Best Family Day Out’ award so we were very excited to visit.
Last weekend we visited National Trust property Calke Abbey and had an absolutely fantastic day out. We only live about 30 minutes away from Calke Abbey and we have visited before when we had National Trust membership. It is a beautiful place to visit and I would highly recommend it. There is always lots going on at Calke Abbey especially during the summer holidays. The kids will definitely not be bored.
On Saturday we went along to a blogger open event at Conkers which we had been invited to. It was a very wet day so I did check to make sure it would still be going on and we were very pleased to find out that it would be. So we got out the raincoats and wellies and off we went.
Enjoy the Great Outdoors at Conkers! Take it slow and explore the 120 acres of maturing woodlands, lakes, ponds and play areas – or go wild and take the 18 stage Assault course challenge.
Last week while we were on holiday in Devon we visited The Milky Way Adventure Park for the day. We went on a wet day so were unsure that there would be enough to keep the kids occupied but we needn’t have worried as there was plenty to keep them entertained indoors. When you arrive you are given a leaflet with a map and all the ride and show times which is very handy. The whole place is set up for adults too so don’t worry Mum & Dad you get to go on everything 😉
