    Yep our buff is used as much as a snot catcher as a neck warmer too.

    I am glad you like the photos Jennie. We are rather spoilt for choice with scenery here in Switzerland.

    Our stone pile isn't that big,...

    This looks like fantastic fun, will tuck this idea away for the future as well.

    Love your tree Monika I haven't taken on Easter properly yet as a tradition but your tree is an inspiration.

    I was fighting hard to make bribery sound good! It does work for us though but not sure what will happen when they are older!

    Yes snot when do we stop dealing with it as Mums?

    Good luck Jay! Your story made me smile, you must be a very patient Mum with 3.

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 ….

Pod Camping

Pod Camping

A few weeks ago the girls had a couple of random days off school, and a 4 day weekend was too good an opportunity to miss. The girls were adamant they wanted to go camping, but not many sites are still open this late in the year, plus the weather can be a bit wet!

Wonderful Whinlatter Forest

One of our favourite (and most frequently visited) places in the UK is Keswick, and just up the road from there is the brilliant Whinlatter Forest. With its great visitor centre, osprey webcams (a pair breed nearby), Siskin Café (great food, great views through the forest), forest walks, mountain biking and adventure playground it’s great for every outdoor enthusiast.

The Last Hike of the Season

Today we decided to hike. The weather here is gorgeous here right now, and this will be out last mountain hike of the year. Tomorrow the mountains close until the ski season starts.

Lord of the Rings Terrain

Lord of the Rings Terrain

A couple of weeks ago, we woke to the sounds of a digger and crashing. Pretty ominous! Horror on horror, it was a huge machine smashing its way through the trees and undergrowth on the beautiful valley directly in front of our home.

Happy Memories

All this talk of the Peak District has brought back very fond memories of our first proper family holiday with Arlo, so we thought we’d take you on a trip down memory lane with us.

The Monsal Trail - Reuben's Story

With Reuben increasingly keen to cycle on his own, we're on the lookout for good traffic free trails. The Monsal Trail in the Peak District fit the bill perfectly, and at 8 and a half miles from end to end, provided Reuben with a lot of practice.

The Monsal Trail - Orla's Story

The Monsal Trail - Orla's Story

Inspired by fellow ambassador Joanne's story of the New Zealand cycle trail, we did an Internet search for somewhere closer to home. After reading through the many results, we decided that The Monsal Trail in the Peak District sounded like our kind of place. So on a chilly, but sunny Sunday afternoon, we packed up the car, remembering the bike rack keys this time, and set off for Buxton.

Moray Coast Trail Jelly

Moray Coast Trail Jelly

I know that in England people generally don’t pick blackberries after the end of September. But up here in the Frozen North (where the days are colder, windier, wetter, and the nights are... now filled with beautiful AURORA!)I tend to forage for brambles (blackberries) in October.

Long Haul With Baby

Long Haul With Baby

Being a first time mother, I was nervous about taking our baby on a long haul trip to New Zealand. To be honest I regretted the whole thing as soon as the tickets were bought! Looking back, I’m more than happy doing it again, all it takes is good planning and a positive attitude!

Walking in the Footsteps of the First Fell Wainwright Climbed

Walking in the Footsteps of the First Fell Wainwright Climbed

Yesterday we decided that having not been on a train for a few weeks that it would be a fitting treat for Ollie as he is doing so well and trying so hard at school. The change from Reception Class to Year 1 is pretty hard for them, and in Ollie’s words “we don’t get to play inside during class time”.
