Our Day at Holywell Bay Fun Park & Goodbye

Well this has review has been a while coming, mainly because I just didn’t know where to start. During our stay at Trevornick we spent a whole day at Holywell Bay Fun Park which was right next door. Since we visited they have made the decision to close the park, which is sad, but as we spent a whole day there I still thought I’d share it with you.

Our Visit to Tintagel Castle

We’re enjoying our second year of English Heritage membership. Membership for two adults, with L free, is £31 in Tesco Clubcard Vouchers. So it is next to no money. L loves castles, English Heritage have a lot. It’s free days out for a year.Tintagel Castle

I’m trying to write about all the properties we visit using our membership. What I liked, didn’t like, share some pictures. We more than made our money back on the membership last year and this, so I am very happy it is good value for money.

Celebrating on The Broads with Herbert Woods

A couple of weeks ago we did one of my favourite things, spent the day out on The Broads in a Picnic Boat from Herbert Woods. Hiring a boat on The Broads is a Norfolk right of passage and the perfect way to celebrate anything, so when my Mother in Law asked for ideas to celebrate my Father in Law’s 65th Birthday I immediately thought of a boat.

Staying at Trevornick

We have just spent the Bank Holiday Weekend in a Eurotent at Trevornick. It was fabulous. The perfect break for me as I had been desperate to take the kid camping this summer and have wanted to return to Cornwall for years.

VW Whitenoise Festival

Last weekend L and I visited the beautiful Euston Park for the family friendly VW Whitenoise Festival .  VW Whitenoise

On the Sunday morning gates opened at 9am, though L and I didn’t arrive until around the 10.30ish mark. Saturday had been amazing on the weather front, Sunday not so much, but we weren’t planning on letting that be a problem. VW Whitenoise Continue reading VW Whitenoise Festival

The Perfect Family Getaway

Last weekend we were invited to stay at Reedsmere, the latest property to join the Broads Escapes family. Sleeping 6 people and right on the bank of the river, this comfortable property was the perfect place for a family weekend.

I can’t think of a nicer place to be

I am going to apologise right now for all the pictures, I tried to narrow it down I genuinely did, but it is so picturesque I couldn’t help it! Continue reading The Perfect Family Getaway

Our #RailAdventure to Cambridge

As you all know  one of our favourite things to do is go on a little adventure by train. This weekend we headed to Cambridge for a #RailAdventure with Greater Anglia. Unlike our previous adventures we didn’t actually have a plan, we just hopped on the train and let day unfold before us.

East Anglia Transport Museum

The East Anglia Transport Museum is another new find for us this year. Unlike some of the other places we have visited for the first time, this one we hadn’t even heard of! This is really sad as I genuinely feel like I have deprived L of a few years worth of fun. Simply put, we love it and if you are looking for a fun day out over the summer holidays I couldn’t recommend this more.East Anglia Transport Museum

Wymondham Heritage Museum

I have lived in or around Wymondham for over 20 years, yet have never visited the Wymondham Heritage Museum in the centre of town. I am pleased to say I have now remedied that!
