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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The summer holidays have officially started! For us it means the last Summer before L starts school, something I’m feeling more than a little wobbly about. It also means a lot of fun and adventuring as for the second summer running we are Super Wings Summer Ambassadors, L is beside himself with excitement!

I cannot tell you how excited we were to be invited back to Bluestone. We had a fabulous time when we last visited Christmas 2016 and couldn’t wait to see what it offered in the Summer months.
We have been to Pembrokeshire a few times and it is a beautiful area of Wales, an area we are rather fond of, but boy is it a long way from Norfolk!! We broke our journey up on the way down with an overnight stay in Newport, this was great as it meant we didn’t have to leave our house at the crack of dawn and we got to arrive at Bluestone nice and early and most importantly ready to explore.

I first visited How Hill for a residential school trip when I was in High School. When we were staying on the Broads in our Herbert Woods boat we visited twice, it was nice to take L somewhere I had been so long ago and it was really nice for me to look round as an adult.
We go on holiday a lot with the kid, maybe two or three family breaks a year. We’ll camp, boat, caravan, we really don’t care but one thing they have all had in common is they have been self catering in the UK. They have also been work, reviews for this blog. We haven’t had a family holiday in the sun at all since L was born and technically I haven’t had a holiday at all.
