Belton House – National Trust, Lincolnshire Review

When we went to Butlins in half term we needed somewhere to stop off halfway so the children could stretch their legs. We usually look for a National Trust property and decided to make use of our National Trust passes, stopping off at Belton House in Lincolnshire. What is Belton House? Belton House is a really lovely house surrounded by gardens, land and things to do. We didn’t go inside…

Stowe – National Trust, Buckinghamshire Review

On the way home from Butlins we wanted to find another National Trust property to visit anywhere between Skegness and where we live in Surrey. We realised though that many National Trust properties are closed on Mondays and this really limited our choices. In the end we chose Stowe in Buckinghamshire which was closer to home than we would have liked but somewhere we have always wanted to visit. Unfortunately the…

Peppa Pig’s Surprise Theatre Show Tour Review

Last week we were invited to see the new Peppa Pig’s Surprise live theatre show at one of our local theatres in Guildford. The show had two showings per day – 1pm and 4pm and we chose the later showing so that LP could come too after she finished school.

Drayton Manor Theme Park Review

Little Man has been obsessed with Thomas the Tank Engine since the first time he saw him and so when I found out about Drayton Manor and their Thomasland attraction I knew I had to take the children there as even LP loves Thomas! I decided that we’d all go for my Birthday, spending a weekend away with a day of afternoon tea for me and then a day at…

Waddesdon Manor – National Trust, Buckinghamshire Review

When we were planning what to do for my Birthday one of the first things we thought to do was go somewhere nice for afternoon tea. Then I remembered that often National Trust properties have lovely cafes or tea rooms and do celebration afternoon tea packages. I took to twitter to ask not only the advice of the National Trust but also of other Twitter users and before long I…
