Family Travel

Recently Travelodge invited us to stay at one of their hotels for a family weekend break.  It was great timing for us as we had also been invited to review a day out at Knowsley Safari Park so we agreed that a stay in Liverpool would work out well.  We were booked into the Travelodge Liverpool Central hotel and all we had to do was turn up. We were really looking forward to our weekend break.  We had never visited Liverpool before and the Travelodge Liverpool Central seemed like the

If your checking into Drayton Manor Hotel this week, you’ll notice a new addition to the staff team.  Noah Reeves-Walters, 9 years old, from Kidderminster will be on hand to answer the important questions of the day for half term week. Not, where’s the nearest cash point or can you point me in the direction of the ladies?  He’s there to give important advice to children who want to know how wobbly the jelly is, where has candy floss and where to sit to get the best soaking on Storm

Do you ever find when you sit down to think about your next big holiday or even what to do at the weekend you draw a complete blank?  With so many possibilities, decisions like this can be tricky and before you know it the moments are lost. The team at Love Holidays hate to think of families missing out on fun like this, and have come up with this inspirational list of things to do and see before the kids are too big to enjoy the family holiday.  This list

I haven’t met a Mum yet who isn’t a little bit nervous about flying with a baby for the first time.  It’s completely understandable when you think about it.  There’s negotiating check-in, the airport lounge, take off and all whilst hoping your baby doesn’t become upset and you can tend to all their needs during the trip. I’m going to be honest though and say that travelling with a baby on a plane is a whole lot easier than flying with a toddler who doesn’t want to wear his belt

When Villa Plus  asked me which of their destinations I wanted to chose to help me create a festive celebration I knew it had to be the Costa Del Sol.  As a family this is one of our favourite holiday destinations and we would spend Christmas in the lovely fishing town of Nerja in a heartbeat. We have visited Nerja nearly every year for 15 years so we know it very well. We regularly hire villas there which allows us to take in the local food and culture, whilst having a

Making memories is such an important part of our family life and holidays are the perfect way to spend time together and capture perfect moments.  I firmly believe that you make memories by spending time together, away from the day to day of family life, in a relaxed holiday atmosphere.  Stimulating the senses with beautiful scenery, amazing food and fun filled activities helps those memories last forever for all the family. Why are memories so important to us.  Well, my son, he’s nearly 17.  He’s just started his A levels

For the last Bank Holiday myself, Teen, Indie and Brook made the 250 mile journey from Nottingham to South West Scotland, nothing like an easy life hey? With a small baby in tow it took us all day to get there and another full day to get back again, but we spent 3 lovely days in this scenic part of the country and it came flooding back to me just why this is one of the UK’s great holiday destinations.  If you are planning a visit to the area soon,

This week we are packing Zena’s Suitcase and we are off on a bit of a road trip.  The GCSE’s results are out on Thursday, and Friday Teen, Princess and little Pudding are taking to the road for a trip to South-West Scotland to visit Granny. We haven’t really been able to take a holiday yet this summer with the baby arriving, but I have really itchy feet now and a change of scenery is required.  As the date for our trip draws closer, I have started to feel a

This is a post I’ve been thinking about for a while, now that I’m in the ‘no-fly’ trimester of pregnancy.  I’ve been reminiscing over our last major holiday a lot, so when the chance came along to join up with Brit Mums and Visit Wales for the  #Wales4Kids Family Holiday Challenge I simply couldn’t resist! Last April marked the end of my maternity leave, some birthdays and a whole heap of significant events that had taken place in our little family.  A celebration was in order!  What better to mark all this than a
