    Kerry, my top tip for getting kids to really understand how fire works is to give them an almost dead fire (just a few hot coals left) to...

    This did make me smile. I light a lot of fires, and I always use a firelighter (straw pieces covered with wax, so all natural).

    Oh definitely! And so many of these big beaches in Scotland are completely empty, so we can let the children run completely free. We're...

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 Ripley Show - Pigs, Cows, Bouncy Slides and Zorbing

Summer seems such a long time ago now, even though the hot days were few and far between. One of the most fun family day’s out that we enjoy during the summer, now that we live in North Yorkshire, is visiting the local agricultural shows.

Socks and Hats, Teddies and Pig-Shaped Biscuits

It was yet another cold and wintery day last Sunday. The snow had disappeared but we needed to get out of the house before cabin fever set in. A quick trip out was all we could manage as our favourite walk along the Nidd Gorge was out of bounds due to the flooded river and massively deep mud so we just went for a walk in the sunshine near the Pine woods in Harrogate.

Braving the Blizzard

Braving the Blizzard

It’s a measure of how desperate for snow our career-break induced ski-starved selves are, that we were willing to drive for an hour the other weekend to the Mourne Mountains and get out of our nice cosy car in a full on blizzard to make the most of what snow there was.

Sledding on 'Big Hill'

Sledding on 'Big Hill'

We are fortunate enough to live within walking distance of a couple of good sledding hills. One is very close, and the children often go there after school with their friends.

Ski Racing

Both girls have been in a group ski lesson for the past four Saturdays, and the culmination of their course came today with the celebratory ski race.

The Big Garden Birdwatch

If you’re looking for something to do this weekend, why not take part in the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch? Birdwatch is an opportunity to get involved in the world’s biggest wildlife survey, and you can do it from your own garden!

Adventures on Exmoor!

Adventures on Exmoor!

We live really close to Exmoor. Ridiculously close. But somehow we’ve always headed coastwards for our days out and Little Trekking. So this year we’ve decided to make more “Adventures on Exmoor!” (sounds like the start of a televised version of an old school Enid Blyton story…). And explore we have.

No Snow Here

No Snow Here

Well, looking at all the other Little Trekkers Ambassadors posts and the whole of Facebook, I think we must be the only people in the country to have had no snow the past few weeks! The minxes were very disappointed, throwing back the curtains every morning to find... glorious sunshine and increasingly thick frost.

Ollie Pinched Mummy's Gloves, and Mummy Pinched Ollie's Coat!

Ollie Pinched Mummy's Gloves, and Mummy Pinched Ollie's Coat!

With the whole country experiencing snow you'd have thought Kendal in Cumbria would have plenty to enjoy, but unfortunately it appears to have missed us and with only a couple of centimetres of snow a couple of weekends ago, so we head off on Saturday into the Lake District to find some sledging fun and take in the gorgeous snow topped mountain views.
