Sandaway Beach Holiday Park North Devon

Last week were lucky enough to have a family holiday in Devon, we were based at Sandaway Beach Holiday Park in Combe Martin, North Devon thanks to the lovely people at John Fowler Holidays.

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.

Feeling Calm #19

For my birthday I was given a great new book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends to help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday and on Wednesday’s I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites. 

We were in Devon all of last week, so I didn’t write my top ten last Wednesday. I’ve been toying with a catch up top 20 this week, just missing a week or doing a top ten from the last 14 days and that is what I have opted for.

It’s been a busy couple of weeks, going away takes up so much time, getting work done before hand, being shattered afterwards. Dealing with everything whilst you are away but without the home comforts. It can be draining but ultimately, we had fun and it was worth it, although there were times during the holiday I may not have said that!

Here are my top 10 moments from the past 14 days;

Going away with John Fowler Holidays

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. sandaway_walkthrough_1 Continue reading Going away with John Fowler Holidays

Our Broads Adventure with Herbert Woods

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 week has been amazing, we went away for Easter and had a fab time, the little one loved it and was on his best behaviour and there was chocolate!! Maybe a couple of bottles of vino as well. It has been genuinely hard to only pick 10 moments from this week.

Here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days: Continue reading Feeling Calm #12

My Travels with El Camino Bracelets

I always consider myself lucky that I get to try new things as a blogger and still find it strange that people value my opinion. Every now and then I get to try something that really stands out from the crowd and I fell luckier still, that’s exactly how I feel about El Camino.

The concept is simple, a charm bracelet dedicated to travel, but the reality is fun and stylish and most importantly affordable.  Continue reading My Travels with El Camino Bracelets

Our Valentine’s Weekend at e-Luminate Cambridge 2016

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
