A Visit to National Forest Adventure Farm

Adventures/ day out/ local review

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

Christmas at Chatsworth with Mr Toad

Adventures/ day out/ local review

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

A Visit to Calke Abbey…

Adventures/ day out/ local review

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.

A Visit to Conkers…

Adventures/ day out/ Review

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.

The Milky Way Adventure Park Review

Adventures/ day out/ Review

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 😉

Disney on Ice Magical Ice Festival Review

Adventures/ day out/ Review

A couple of weeks ago we got to go and watch the Disney on Ice Magical Ice Festival at Nottingham’s Capital FM Arena. We love Disney on Ice and have enjoyed it a few times before but I have to say that I think the Magical Ice Festival was my favourite one so far. I took a friend and our three girls and they did not move out of their seats the whole time. Read more
