UK

The UK is our Motherland, and although we are seemingly always finding ways to escape her, we do keep finding our way back again. And each time we return home, we appreciate it all the more; be it the green rolling hills, the sense of humour and politeness, the quirky art, or Mum’s roast dinner. Plus, there are some very awesome adventures that we have found right on our doorstep…

Do check out our Peak District Kids website, where we share all our top tips of where to go and what to do on a family trip to the Peaks.

However, in all honesty, we don’t travel in the UK that much; so this blog isn’t really the place if you’re looking for UK travel inspiration. Although you may find something of interest below. And make sure you check out these top things to do in the Lake District with kids (it’s a place we really want to explore more of), plus this London with kids guide is a must read (as what is a visit to the UK without a trip to the capital)?

    Camping at Kielder Forest: Landal Kielder Waterside REVIEW

    AD | This is a paid promotion in partnership with Visit Northumberland. As always, these are all my own words and opinions. Whilst Northumberland is renowned for its castles and incredible beaches, if you venture inland and northwards to the Scottish border, the landscape becomes even wilder and more remote. Here you will find Kielder…

    It was a Friday night, we’d just left McDonalds off the A17, and were continuing our 3.5 hour drive through the grey and drizzle. This was wasn’t exactly putting me in the mood for camping. But thank goodness we didn’t need to pitch a tent on arrival. Instead we were going to stay in a…

    Radisson Hotel & Conference Centre London Heathrow REVIEWED: taking a breather before the next chapter

    It had been an uncomfortable night flight from Johannesburg where us parents hardly slept a wink.
