It’s the first day of half term!! Whoop!! I’m really excited to have some time off work to spend with L and he is really excited to have some time off school. Starting the week off with a bang we headed to one of our faves, Roarr!
This half term they are offering half price kids entry if they go in fancy dress and it was really fun seeing all the kids dressed up, running around and having fun. There are lots of fun activities to take part in too.
We caught up with my sister and my niece and just made the most of the fact that we were somewhere a one year old and a six year old could both have fun and that there were plenty of things for us to do inside in the warm.
Last week we spent a truly magical 4 nights at Bluestone, a fantastic resort in Pembrokeshire. If you haven’t heard about Bluestone it’s well worth checking them out, they offer self catering holidays in a range of lodges and apartments in their very own National Park resort. Surrounded by ancient forests with entertainment on tap you get a marvellous mix of their very special brand of free range fun.
Big cats, a toucan, tarantulas and tapirs will make Half Term braziliant at Amazona Zoo!
One of Norfolk’s leading attractions, Amazona Zoo in Cromer offers a unique Half Term day out where families can explore and learn about a varied and fascinating selection of animals native to South America from big cats to resident creepy crawlies.
On Friday night we were invited to the preview evening for the amazing The Snowman and The Snowdog Bricklive Tour that launched at Banham Zoo this weekend.
Banham Zoo is the first zoo in the UK to host this new brick trail inspired by The Snowman and The Snowdog. The tour is running until the 5th January 2020 so you’ve plenty of time to pop along and see it.
From the moment we arrived it was just magical. Trees covered in lights everywhere you look, from the carpark guiding you in and as you walk through an archway into Thursford the magic only increases. With animatontric huskies barking their greeting and even more lights than you would have thought possible.
Fielding Cottage Norfolk Holidays has three wonderful rural ‘barn style’ cottages located on a farm at Honingham, just 20 minutes’ drive from Norwich. This is the perfect retreat for celebrating Christmas or New Year where all three barns can be taken together.
You may remember a couple of weeks ago I shared that intu Chapelfield would be hosting some rather large bugs in the centre for a fun and interactive tour. Well we went and enjoyed a sneak peak of the tour on the opening morning so I thought I’d share it with you.
I think we are lucky to live in one of the most beautiful areas of the country. With fabulous coastline, nature reserves and amazing walking pretty much wherever you turn. This summer I can barely think of a day where we haven’t been out exploring it, but all to often I miss huge chunks of what there is on offer as I’m travelling. Greater Anglia agree, which is why they think you should travel by train, where you will always have the best seat (and view) in the house.
