During our week away in Shropshire we were invited to visit BeWILDerwood in Cheshire which was only an hour and a half from where we were staying. It looked fantastic and we couldn’t wait to go! When we arrived, BeWILDerwood was really well managed with staff directing us to parking spots and ticket booths to
During half term we had a lovely break away at the Richmond Hill Hotel, exploring Richmond Park and enjoying time together. On the way home we booked tickets to visit Syon Park, somewhere we’d never been before but so close to the hotel that it felt like the perfect opportunity.

We first went to The Vyne years ago when the children were just toddlers and since then it’s been one of our favourite National Trust places to visit as it’s not too far from us. Since the pandemic, National Trust sites operate using a booking system and so we booked a visit to The Vyne
California Country Park has swiftly become one of our new favourite places – along with Dinton Pastures Country Park down the road from it. In Finchampstead, Berkshire, it’s not too far from us and a really lovely day out. Managed by Wokingham Borough Council, California Country Park is a 100 acre country park which is
