Days Out

the stable
Jul 08

Poole Quay is little more than a stone’s throw from my home, but for some reason it’s one of those places we only think to visit occasionally. After every visit, we always end up saying, “why don’t we come here more often?” But then I guess it wouldn’t have such novelty value if we did. […]

Beckley Farm field
Jun 11

Last year we visited Open Farm Sunday for the first time, and we had so much fun that we rocked up again this year and asked some friends to join us. It’s a fantastic family event, full of activities and educational fun for children of all ages. This time we gave ourselves from 1pm till […]

Chinese Lantern
Feb 14

On Tuesday night, Little I was allowed to stay up a bit past her bedtime to join in the Chinese New Year celebrations at our local Boscombe Chine Gardens. She’s such a big fan of Rapunzel and the Disney movie Tangled, and for those of you who’ve seen it you’ll know that there’s a part […]

I had never heard of Open Farm Sunday before. I stumbled across a mention of it by chance on Twitter last week, and it’s turned out to be a real hidden gem. It takes place on one Sunday each year, when hundreds of farms across the UK are opened up to the public for free. […]

Bournemouth Sky Ride
Jun 13

On Sunday we took part in the Bournemouth Sky Ride – a 6km, traffic-free bike ride through Bournemouth’s town centre, gardens and sea front. It happened to coincide with our 6th wedding anniversary, and so despite the grey skies and drizzle, we ventured out as planned, thinking it would still be a fun thing to […]

Sandy Bay Exmouth
Apr 02

Why on earth haven’t we done a £9.50 holiday with The Sun before? It really is worth saving up those 10 tokens for as it is a great way to holiday on a budget, particularly when your children are young. We have just returned from a fun-packed four-night break in Devon, staying at Haven’s 5 […]

Blashford Lake
Mar 11

My husband has recently developed a passion for photography, and so our weekends now mainly consist of us heading off somewhere nice and scenic where he can happily snap away, while I meander along behind with Little I. While we have our favourite haunts along the Dorset coastline, we also love exploring new parts of […]

Oct 03

The first weekend of October was a scorcher and we were lucky enough to be invited out by the extended family to a lovely part of the New Forest called Putties Bridge, which is accessible off Rhinefield Ornamental Drive, for a lunchtime picnic and afternoon stroll. After weaving through the country lanes and the many […]

Snow Leopard
Sep 20

Let’s be realistic…living in the UK, there’s a handful of weeks in the year that we can enjoy a family day out in the glorious sunshine…the rest of the time, there’s a 50% chance it will be raining! With this in mind, it seems sensible that destinations such as Marwell should be geared up to […]
