TURTLE BAY LAUNCH NEW MENU AND IT’S ALL ABOUT THE CARIBBEAN SOCIAL.

We love Turtle Bay, it’s a great place to eat as a family, amazing food, great atmosphere and fun staff. So we were eager to try out the new menu.

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.

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.

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
