Review: A Family Visit To Crieff Hydro And Action Glen, Perthshire

Earlier in the summer, I received an email from a place called Crieff Hydro asking us if we wanted to come and visit. The place looked incredible and I instantly wanted to say “yes”, but having seen that it was 450 miles away up in Perthshire, it didn’t seem likely that it’d happen. If only […]

Review: A Family-Friendly Activity Holiday To Hampshire

For the third year running, we were invited by Hampshire’s Top Attractions to visit Hants for a short break. Having never really holidayed in the county prior to a few years ago, it’s now somewhere we instantly think of when it comes to family staycations. As Toddler L has just turned three, the emphasis of […]

Review: The Original Konfidence Swim Jacket (At Splash Landings Waterpark)

A few weeks ago, we had the chance to visit Alton Towers as part of our role as Konfidence Swimologists during 2017.

As a […]

Review: Family Glamping At Penbugle Organic Farm Wigwams In Cornwall

The other week, I wrote about our family break to South Devon at Hillhead Caravan Club Site. Well, our holiday didn’t finish there! From Devon, we made the hour and a bit journey across the county border to Penbugle Organic Farm in neighbouring Cornwall. Here, we did something a bit different – we had our first […]

A Toddler-Free, Dads-Only Trip To Topgolf In Watford

I may be stating the obvious, but having a kid changes things. Take something like hobbies. Over the years, the number of activities I’ve done has slowly declined. This hasn’t been on purpose, but a mixture of things – moving out of London, having a kid, friends getting partners, becoming older etc – just makes your […]

Review: A Family Stay At Hillhead Caravan Club Site And Exploring Devon

You may – or may not – remember that last summer I was an ambassador for The Caravan And Motorhome Club’s Big Little Tent Festival (BLTF). As part of this, we were given the opportunity of a family press trip to one of their UK club sites. As we don’t have a caravan or motorhome – my […]
