A Day Out At Rīo Safari Park, Elche

  • June 26, 2019

It’s been a while since I wrote a day out post so thought I’d do my first Spanish family day out! I’ll be writing a lot of posts about things to do on the Costa Blanca with children as we explore more, so if you are planning a holiday to this area of Spain keep an eye out for my suggestions of things to do with kids in Alicante and >>

35 Great Days Out With Kids In The South Of England

  • January 29, 2019
35 days out in the South

With half term coming up, and the weather (hopefully!) getting nicer soon, you might be planning some family days out. I might be biased but I think the South Coast is the best place to live in the UK and there are lots of great family-friendly attractions to choose from in the South of England, and in my 7 years of parenting, we have visited a lot of them! I >>

A History Lesson at The Mary Rose, Portsmouth

Mary Rose Portsmouth

Last weekend we decided to get out of Dorset and visit somewhere new. It was absolutely freezing so we didn’t want to spend too much time outside and decided to visit The Mary Rose in Portsmouth. You’ve probably heard of The Mary Rose, one of Henry VIII’s warships, but maybe like me, you don’t really know much more about it than that. If that’s the case, and you are near Portsmouth, >>

The Abandoned Dorset Village of Tyneham

  • January 17, 2019

We have visited Tyneham Village near Lulworth in Dorset a couple of time but I’m aware that not many people have heard of it. It has a really interesting story, so if you’re in the area (or even if you’re local) and are looking for things to do in Dorset, it’s definitely somewhere to add to your must-visit list. Take a look at our photos and find out a bit >>

Strawberry Picking

Last weekend we had a great couple of hours out in the fresh air all for the bargain price of £2.80 – we went strawberry picking at the Cat & Fiddle farm in Christchurch. We’ve been pumpkin picking there quite a few times and have always said we’d go back in the summer and finally we made it. Strawberry Picking Sunday Sunday morning started off very grey and overcast, and >>

VIP-ing It At Hollywood Bowl Tower Park

This week while the rest of the country was watching England in the semi-final of the World Cup, Little H and I joined some fellow Bournemouth Bloggers at Hollywood Bowl Tower Park in Poole to find out more about their Summer of Fun. Hollywood bowl Summer of Fun I usually shy away from blogging events as I’m not great at meeting new people and I never think I’m a ‘proper’ blogger, but >>

Longleat Safari Park And Festival of Light

  • December 31, 2017

On Christmas Eve we had a lovely day out visiting Longleat Safari Park for the first time – well, I’d been before about 35 years ago but not sure that counts! The main thing we wanted to see was the Festival of Light which starts at around 4:30 pm and is obviously best-seen in the dark. We didn’t want to get there too early as we were worried we’d be >>

Mighty​ Claws Adventure Golf Bournemouth

  • May 29, 2017

Last weekend we were invited to the opening of a new dinosaur adventure golf course in Bournemouth – Mighty Claws Adventure Golf. After a week of amazing weather, it was predictably grey and cold on Saturday morning. Nevertheless, we braved the drizzle to go and play golf. Luckily the rain stopped as we arrived and it did try to brighten up a little bit. Mighty Claws is about 10 minutes >>
