Family Friendly

I wanted to share with you a review of our hotel stay at El Pueblo Tamlelt in Agadir incase you were going to book your next holiday there.  It’s a budget hotel in the Caribbean Village Agador complex where we stayed while on our recent holiday in Morocco. I would definitely describe this hotel as an affordable option for people wanting to go on holiday in Agadir. We picked a budget hotel as we hoped that we would be out and about exploring Agadir independently and going on days out

Festivals are the perfect way to celebrate summer as a family.  The UK’s best family friendly festivals are packed with activities, music, theatre and story telling.  They are the ultimate summer party and there are plenty of festivals out there that are completely kid friendly. Why visit a family friendly festival? Because they give you the opportunity to camp more on child friendly sites and you get to enjoy the freedom of being outside on those hazy days of summer with a packed program of activities that everyone will enjoy.

Did you know that you can now stay at Devon’s best family day out attraction, Crealy Resort and Adventure Park?  We were invited to stay in a safari tent at Crealy Meadows with our 2 kids aged 4 and 6 years old.  It could well be the best glamping in Devon for kids and here’s why. Glamping at Crealy Meadows is a great option for families looking for places to stay in Devon AND it’s literally right next door to Crealy’s Great Adventure Park which is perfect for little people’s legs. 

Our week in Cornwall really brought it home to me that great holiday vibes are right on our doorstep and there are a few things that make a trip in the UK very special indeed.  One box we certainly have to tick when travelling with the kids is looking for the best fish and chips.  While we were in Cornwall we were invited to Harbour Lights Falmouth to check out their fish and chip restaurant. We had very much enjoyed a morning exploring the National Maritime Museum, but the kids

The Sands Hotel Resort & Spa near Newquay, Cornwall ticks a lot of boxes for families looking for a kid friendly resort for their holiday. Just imagine being sandwiched between rolling hills with open fields and stunning costal views for a start.  I bet you’re feeling relaxed just thinking about it aren’t you?  Well that’s exactly what you’ll get when you arrive at Sands Resort Hotel and Spa for your family holiday. The Sands Hotel Newquay has excellent facilities and prides itself on its family friendly service.  Both of these things,

PizzaExpress is one of our favourite family friendly restaurants and when we heard that they had teamed up with the World Book Day campaign we couldn’t wait to pop down and find out what it was all about.  We also got to eat some amazing pizza, which helps a lot of course! As parents we have learnt to be creative about using our time with the kids to encourage them to read, draw, write and do activities.  We love story books and I always carry a pad and colouring pens

Over recent years, going to the theatre has become more and more accessible to children.  I love taking the girls to see a show, and they love watching stories and characters be brought to life in front of their very eyes.  We never fail to have a good time when we go to the theatre as a family. We were lucky enough to be invited to see What The Lady Bird Heard Live showing at Nottingham’s Theatre Royal recently at it was a big hit with both Indie and Brook.

Having discovered what a beautiful part of the world Devon is this year when I visited with Indie I am desperate to go back with the rest of the family next year.  I know that Brook will love the outdoors experiences as much as we did and the OH is always happy when we don’t have to fly.  As we want to visit for a family holiday this time round I’m already scouting out Devon holiday cottages for us to stay in to give us more room and flexibility. Once

We decided it would be a great idea to begin our Hamburg city break adventure with a London Stansted Hotel.  We are huge fans of Holiday Inn Express and with such an early flight planned, staying in an airport hotel with kids always makes things go a little bit smoother. We arrived at tea time and we were able to leave the car in the car park straight outside the hotel entrance.  We unpacked, but of course it didn’t matter if we forgot something in the first run or decided

Buckland Abbey is just a few minutes drive from the Moorland Garden Hotel and very close to Yelverton, so it’s a perfect family day out if you are visiting Devon.  As you may remember from our review of the hotel, we had to postpone our visit to Buckland Abbey due to the rain.  After spending a day relaxing at the hotel, we were certainly ready to get started again and were very much looking forward to seeing which moor otter we were going to meet and learn more about Buckland

We reached the Moorland Garden Hotel in Devon on a complete high.  It was the final hotel on our moor otter spotting tour and we had just come from the nearby town of Yelverton.  Our excitement stemmed from our visit to The Rock Inn.  During our otter spotting escapades we would try and guess which otter we were going to find next.  My daughter thought this was so much fun and it added a little more excitement to our endeavours. As we entered the car park for The Rock Inn

During our visit to Devon this summer we were invited to the Two Bridges Hotel which can be found in the very heart of the exceptionally beautiful Dartmoor National Park.  It’s also the sister hotel of The Bedford Hotel, where we also had the pleasure of staying for the night during our visit to Tavistock. On arrival, we drove over the bridge that leads towards the characteristically white buildings of the hotel in anticipation, wondering how the Two Bridges Hotel would compare to the Bedford Hotel which had made such a big impression

Our holiday in Menorca left a big impression on us to be honest.  The main reason was because it gave us the perfect balance of fun, sight seeing and the option to visit some great local restaurants in Son Bou. We loved our stay at Royal Son Bou Family Club and we also enjoyed visiting different places in Menorca.  Because we were staying half board at Royal Son Bou Family Club, we were also able to enjoy eating out as well as at the hotel.  We found having the option to

Each year, millions of tourists flock to the golden sands of Tenerife in search of the best all inclusive hotels. The largest Canary Island is the perfect place to enjoy a holiday, whether you’re travelling with your friends, family or as a couple. The island’s beautiful scenery, warm climate and fabulous nightlife has made it a hit with holidaymakers from all over the world, but what if you want to experience a Tenerife holiday on an all inclusive basis? Which are the best hotels in Tenerife? As one of the

We took our young children to Royal Son Bou Family Club in Menorca for a holiday recently and can honestly say we were very impressed with this all inclusive holiday resort for lots of reasons.  If you follow my Instagram account you might have caught a glimpse of what we got up to. I’ve got a few blog posts to share with you about our family holiday in Menorca, and I’ll be talking about where we ate, where we visited and what we loved about the island.  First of all I’m going

I cannot believe that Disneyland Paris is 25 years old already.  I still remember the park first opening and desperately wanting to visit when I was a child.  Unfortunately, that didn’t happen when I was little but who can forgive me for thinking about wanting to visit Disneyland Paris now that I have two little girls of my own.  Holiday Inn and Air France helped us make that dream come true when they invited us all to Disneyland Paris for the weekend to enjoy the 25th Anniversary celebrations.  I knew the

One experience we really enjoy in the summer as a family is going to festivals and we are delighted to be collaborating with Contact Numbers UK who are joining us in our love of this British tradition with their #FestivalFever campaign.  We are literally counting down the days until Camp Bestival weekend from 27th July to 30th July as it’s our first year of visiting this event. There are a lot of family friendly festivals in the UK over the summer, so why are we so excited about this one?  There’s so

Later this year, we are heading to the island of Menorca for the first time for a family holiday.  When I found out that this relatively small island had 70 Menorca beaches in total I decided I needed to narrow it down a little.  We are staying on the island for a week, and we need to know where the best family friendly beaches are in Menorca to make the most of our stay. A lot of the islands beaches are small coves only accessible by foot, which sounds great for a

Kew Gardens is a beautiful open space in Richmond Upon Thames, South West London.  A while a go, the girls and I were invited to visit Kew Gardens for the day by The Original Muck Boot Company.  I was really excited to take the girls to Kew Gardens to explore, as it was a place that none of us had visited. Kew Gardens attracts all kinds of visitors as it’s a beautiful place, full of iconic buildings and rare and significant plants.  It also attracts lots of families who enjoy open

Recently we went on a family road trip.  We were heading to Bluestone in Pembrokeshire, but experience has told me this is a long way to drive with two small children.  We planned an over night stay at Premier Inn Lewins Mead in Bristol and discovered there was a Brewers Fayre at the same site. When Brewers Fayre found out that we would be passing through, they very kindly invited us to try their restaurant at Lewins Mead in Bristol.  As you might already know, we’ve been to Brewers Fayre

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
