As a family, we love being outdoors and discovering new places. We first visited Moors Valley Country Park a few years back but didn’t get to stay very long and then just kept forgetting to drive back to explore it further. Located in Dorset, Ringwood near to Bournemouth, it is around an hours drive for us so it definitely needed a whole day dedicated to returning and now that both of the boys are at the stage of being able to enjoy things together, it seemed like the right time to head back down there.

I’d heard so many great things about KidZania in Westfield so we were over the moon when we were asked to attend an event run by Nintendo inside the giant kid’s city which would allow us to visit the rest of the play city afterwards. Continue reading “KidZania Review”
Although the summer months are often favoured when it comes to planning days out, winter brings its own unique range of exciting events and activities that the whole family can enjoy.
In London, there is always something new just waiting to be discovered, ranging from culture and history-based trips to foodie adventures and music, arts or sporting events. Compared to the warmer months of the year, the capital should be quieter during the winter without so many tourists – the perfect time to plan a day trip! London is so easily accessible via train but if you are further afield why not think about what flights to London are available. It could be great fun for the whole family and will also get you there in no time! Continue reading “What to Do in London this Winter”
The weather has been less than Spring-like recently (to say the least) and as most of our usual indoor activities had been exhausted we found ourselves at a bit of a loss over what to do the other day. Then I remembered hearing about a new play place in Odiham, Hampshire. A friend had highly recommended that we visit Little Play Town because her children had such a great time so I set about looking it up online.
Little Play Town is an indoor interactive play place for babies and children aged 1-6 years. It is very similar to Continue reading “Our Visit to Little Play Town”
We discovered The Living Rainforest in Berkshire a few years ago and I couldn’t believe I hadn’t heard of it sooner. Situated in Thatcham near Newbury, Berkshire this indoor gem is an ecological and educational centre which attracts visitors all year round. It provides a tropical environment based across 3 rooms in which you can discover wonderful plants, insects and animals all of which are becoming endangered in our rainforests today. If you love The Eden Project you will also love it here! Continue reading “Visiting The Living Rainforest”
As Instagram and Facebook have slowly been filling up with beautiful pictures of pumpkin patches I felt as though I was missing out on this tradition and couldn’t believe I hadn’t heard of pumpkin picking sooner. As a huge fan of Autumn and Halloween, I knew I had to find somewhere to visit with the family to give this a go ourselves.
It didn’t take long to find out that Pickwell Farm in Netley, Southampton was clearly a favourite amongst Continue reading “Pumpkin Picking at Pickwell Farm”
We have just come back from a lovely break in Wales where we visited so many amazing different places but my favourite from the week had to be The National Botanic Garden Of Wales. Set in the beautiful countryside of Carmarthenshire these gardens are almost like a scaled-down version of The Eden Project. With stunning gardens of varying styles, a butterfly house, Continue reading “The National Botanic Garden Of Wales- A Great Day Out”
