    It sounds like a wonderful day that Qun will never forget!

    LOL! It felt like it at the time, which is always a bit scary when it's the first day of your holiday: will the rest be a let-down?...

    Monika, Kerry - I fretted about the decision for ages, right up until we left. In hindsight it was great, but I realise it could have...

    Wow! You're so brave to have attempted that. It sounds like it was totally brilliant, though. And here's us wondering if we can manage a...

We must have the best customers in the World. They have been telling us for years about all the great things they get out and do with their families and we thought it was about time the World knew about it. This is not a ‘Places to go with the kids’ resource in a traditional sense. There’s lots of good websites out there already that can tell you the opening times and entry costs into the many hundreds of attractions that there are across the country.

This is about real experiences, in real places, by real families who get out there in this magnificent country of ours and do stuff. Great stuff! Stuff that you will look back on and remember for the rest of your life. Places that you may never have thought to go, things that you may never have thought to do. Told by those who have been there and done it, and want to pass it on to inspire other families to do the same. These are our Little Trekkers Ambassadors. They lead the way ….

The Beach is Ours!

The Beach is Ours!

We love sharing our beautiful scenery and landscape with visitors – July and August usually being the only two really busy months of the year for tourists. Admittedly there is something special though about reclaiming the beaches in September and having them all to ourselves again.

A Canoeing Close Shave

A Canoeing Close Shave

It was Day Three of our camping trip and to say we had been allowing the Little Trekkers to burn the candle at both ends would be an understatement. With hindsight, beginning our canoe trip right at the point in the day when Chloe REALLY needed to sleep wasn’t the most sensible idea.

Messing About on the River (Dart)

Messing About on the River (Dart)

For the past few years we have had regular holidays in the simply wonderful Dartmouth in Devon. I had a fairly short Royal Naval career a few years ago and did my training at the Britannia Royal Naval College which sits in a very commanding position overlooking the town.

Harvest Time

Harvest Time

The end of September brings the onset of Autumn and harvest-time. Our girls have been enjoying the late raspberry bloom, and they are just the right height for Freya to pluck them unaided; naturally, she is very pleased with that.

We Slept in a Tree

We Slept in a Tree

Every year at the end of September the girls get 2 random days off school. A long weekend always seems like too good an opportunity to pass up, but most of the campsites we favour are already closed for Winter.

The Bouncy Bears of Badenoch

The Bouncy Bears of Badenoch

Last weekend saw us swapping our North-West Highland mountains for the Cairngorms. Whilst Stewart attended a two day first-aid course we had plenty of time to explore. The first highlight was the Highland Wildlife Park in Kingussie.

A Cow Parade (The Alpabfahrt)

A Cow Parade (The Alpabfahrt)

The girls and I are off on a special trip this weekend, but we had to delay our departure by a few hours to attend our local 'Alpabfahrt'.

Big City Park

Big City Park

Over the 2 weeks we were camping near Aberdeen in the summer, I tried to surprise myself and the family by not going near any of the tempting beaches between Stonehaven and Montrose at all. Oh no – those could wait for another few weeks until we actually moved there!

That's How We Rock and Roll

That's How We Rock and Roll

Just south of La Roque Gageac in the Dordogne is an innocuous looking hangar by the side of the road. Looks a bit shabby on the outside, with a dusty car park, and old metal rail barriers 7 feet high fencing off an outside area containing what from a distance look like a bunch of boulders.
