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

  • January 22, 2019
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 >>

What We Did In 2018

  • January 2, 2019
What we did in 2018

Happy New Year! Normally at the start of the month I take a look back at what we got up to over the last month, this time though I thought it would be more fun to look back over the last 12 months. I count myself very lucky that we had a good 2018, there weren’t any major events but no disasters either which I think makes a good year. >>

Petlake Alpacas of the New Forest

Petlake Alpacas of the New Forest

Last weekend we found a gem in the New Forest – I can’t believe we didn’t know about it before! Little H suddenly has a thing for llamas and alpacas. If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen our llama haul from Flying Tiger – we only went in for a backpack!

Windsor Castle – A Great Day Out But NOT In The Summer!

  • July 23, 2018
Windsor Castle

Last weekend we went to Windsor Castle as an early birthday treat for my niece. We hadn’t been before and were looking forward to doing a bit of sightseeing and one of the Queen’s homes. I’ve recently written a few posts about things you can do in the summer holidays with kids (London, beaches, bowling) and I was hoping to do a similar recommendation in my review of Windsor Castle >>

VIP-ing It At Hollywood Bowl Tower Park

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 >>

Our Favourite National Trust Days Out in Dorset, Hampshire & Wiltshire

  • February 19, 2018

Last summer we got our first National Trust membership and have definitely got our money’s worth. We worked out that after 3 trips our family of 3 would be getting free visits on the annual membership of £115. This post isn’t in conjunction with National Trust at all, we’ve just been to some really great places and think the membership is such good value for families that I wanted to >>

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 >>

A National Trust Christmas at Kingston Lacy

  • December 21, 2017

We’re well and truly in the Christmas spirit here and have been on some fab Christmas outings. Last weekend we went to National Trust’s Kingston Lacy in Wimborne, Dorset to see the illuminated gardens. We have a National Trust family pass (which I can’t recommend highly enough!) and their seasonal events are always really good. Here are some of our photos… First, we went into the house which you have to pre-book your >>
