Review: Our Tiny Knights Midweek Break At Warwick Castle

As a family always keen to find new places to visit and explore, I was chuffed to be asked to be a blogging ambassador for Warwick Castle during 2017. I’ve only ever been there once before – back in 2006 ish when the missus and I were fresh faced, less grey and enjoyed copious amounts […]

Things To Do With A Toddler In Dacorum, Hertfordshire And Buckinghamshire

Since becoming a stay-at-home dad nearly two years ago, I’ve found that my days are pretty different to the pre-kid days. Hardly surprising, I know. But what this has meant is that I’ve needed to tap into a whole different world of baby and toddler related activities that I never knew about before. As a […]

Review: A Magical Christmas Experience At LaplandUK

The other weekend, we were invited along to celebrate all things Christmas at LaplandUK. Set in a forest near Ascot, it’s an award winning Christmas family theatrical experience which recreates Santa’s arctic homeland. With elves, reindeer, festive activities, a snowy village and a meeting the big man himself, it certainly sounded like a magical experience. […]

Review: Drayton Manor Magical Christmas 2016

I’m going to mention the ‘C word’. No, not that one, I’ll save that for a different post. I’m obviously talking about Christmas. As we approach the end of November, we’re a little over a month away from the day that Santa breaks into our houses like the petty thief he is. He may bring […]

My First Tandem Skydive Experience Day. Geronimo!

Blogging has given me some pretty awesome experiences. For instance, last year I got the chance to attend the FA Cup semi-final to watch my boyhood club – Aston Villa – beat Liverpool at Wembley. Not only this, but I was given the VIP treatment with backstage access and a walk around the pitch before […]

Review: A Family-Friendly Holiday To Dartmoor

The missus and I have always enjoyed seeing different places together. Although a little more difficult now that we have a toddler, I think we still do a decent job of finding new places to visit as a family – be it day trips or short breaks. As we’ve ruled out big holidays abroad – for now, at least […]

Review: A Family-Friendly Break At Park Resorts California Cliffs Holiday Park, East Anglia

We did something a little different for our Anniversary and Father’s Day this year. We spent the weekend – well technically Friday to Monday – in a static caravan at California Cliffs Holiday Park, close to the seaside town of Great Yarmouth, East Anglia. Park Resorts – the UK family holiday park provider – had been […]

Review: Little Kickers ‘Little Kicks’ Toddler Football Classes

We’ve tried a number of different baby and toddler classes over the last two years. What I’ve found is that Toddler L much prefers active ones – those where she can move around, explore and blow off steam, rather than things like listening to stories or singing nursery rhymes. With this in mind – and being the footy-loving […]

Review: A Toddler-Friendly Family Holiday To Hampshire

At the start of May, we got the chance to go away for a few days as part of a blog review courtesy of Hampshire Top Attractions. We were lucky enough to have a holiday in Hants last year – where we visited Paultons Park, Winchester Science Museum and Blue Reef Aquarium – so were really chuffed to […]
