A Visit to Calke Explore

Adventures/ day out

Disclosure: We were invited to explore Calke Explore by the National Trust. We received free entry, a goody bag and a voucher for lunch however all opinions are my own.

If you read this blog regularly or follow us on social media then you will know that one of our favourite National Trust properties is Calke Abbey so we were very excited to go and explore the newly opened outdoor hub… Calke Explore. Calke Explore is a brilliant new addition to Calke Abbey making it even better for families who are wanting to spend more time outdoors.

Fun at the SnowDome with the Toboggan Day Ticket


Disclosure – We were invited to spend the day at the SnowDome free of charge so we could experience the Toboggan day tickets for ourselves and tell you all about our day.

Yesterday we spent a very busy active day at the SnowDome in Tamworth experiencing the new toboggan day ticket. The day ticket includes swimming with the inflatable & flume, a toboggan session and ice skating. Priced at £20.70 for adults and £19.70 for children which we think is brilliant value for a fun-packed day.

But by some stroke of luck when we arrived the rain seemed to ease and we managed to get through the whole day with only mild drizzle to contend with. The wettest we got was on the water rides 😉 Read more

Nottingham by Helicopter

Adventures/ day out/ Experience

A helicopter flight has been on my wish list for ages, despite having done it when I was little I really wanted to experience it again so I was over the moon a couple of months a go when the lovely people at Buyagift sent me a voucher for a 25-35 Minute Extended Helicopter Flight for Two and last Saturday we finally got to have our helicopter experience over Nottingham.
