Devon is about 6 hours in the car from us, so with such a long way t travel there are a few things that we really need to have on arrival. A straight forward check in, something fun to do with L, food and a comfy bed. We were me with all these things. It was lovely.
HERBERT WOODS HITS 90 YEAR BOATING HISTORY MILESTONE
As you know we have enjoyed holidays with Herbert Woods, used the boats, relaxed in a cottage and explored the Broads with them, so I’m very excited to tell you about their birthday plans and hopefully we’ll see you there.
Herbert Woods, who trained as an apprentice boat builder in Potter Heigham in 1907, was one of the first pioneers of Broads Tourism and now the company, which he formed in 1926 and is still going strong today, celebrates its 90th birthday this year with a grand Regatta being planned on Sunday 10th July 2016.

In a couple of weeks we are going on holiday to Devon and the lovely John Fowler Holidays are putting up with us for a few nights at their Sandaway Beach resort.
It is fair to say that we can’t wait, we went to Devon last year and explored a lot of the South of the county so to return to the North this year will be epic. It’s a long car journey for us, 6 hours, without stops, so you know we’ve either got to be super excited or just plain crazy to do that with a toddler.

Just over a year ago we had a marvellous holiday on the Norfolk Broads, staying on one Herbert Woods‘ boats, Silver Light. This year we have been incredibly lucky to return, this time staying in one of their luxurious holiday homes, The Bittern.
The weather forecast before we left had been typically British, especially for a bank holiday, so we were looking forward to being able to chill out in a warm and comfy cottage in the evenings. Continue reading Our Broads Adventure with Herbert Woods
This plus that equals…. a great family weekend away
Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week are the things that make a great family break.
This weekend I was lucky enough to not only have a child free weekend away with the other half but to have also been invited to e-Luminate Cambridge Festival of Light as a blog ambassador.
The festival started on Friday but we sadly couldn’t make the opening ceremony and it runs until the 17th, so there’s still plenty of time to visit and enjoy the amazing light installations and if you’re lucky book onto one of the fab events. As it’s half term week it would be a fab thing to do with the kids. Continue reading Our Valentine’s Weekend at e-Luminate Cambridge 2016
