Hatchlands Park National Trust, Surrey Review

We are making our way around so many National Trust places with our membership and our most recent adventure was Hatchlands Park near Guildford, Surrey. Hatchlands Park is well sign posted and has a lot of parking making it perfect for a day out. What is Hatchlands Park? Hatchlands Park consists of the main house – which opens at 2pm so sadly we didn’t get to venture inside, as well…

Active Tots Reading Review

I have been looking for places to take Little Man whilst his sister’s at school. Our fail safe has always been National Trust but it’s not so good on the rainy days and in my search I came across Active Tots that’s situated between Reading and Basingstoke. What is Active Tots? Active Tots, unlike a lot of soft play places is aimed purely at the under threes, and those under…

Creepy Crawlies at the Arena, Camberley Review

One fail safe rainy day activity for us has long been Creepy Crawlies at The Arena Leisure Centre in Camberley. It’s aimed at under fives and has enough to keep any child entertained. The sessions run between 45 minutes to an hour and a half depending on the day that you visit although the price is the same regardless of session length – we tend to aim for the hour…

Drusillas Park Review

A few months ago the lovely people at Visit 1066 Country invited us to explore some of East Sussex by having a day at an attraction in the area.

The action-packed ice spectacular featuring four fun-filled Disney stories is coming to the…

Greys Court – National Trust, Oxfordshire Review

We are slowly working our way around all the National Trust properties within an hour’s drive from us and our most recent visit was to Greys Court in Henley on Thames. Just driving To Greys Court was beautiful – through Henley and over the little bridge across the Thames. Henley is one of my favourite places and it’s oh so beautiful. If you visit Greys Court or are ever near…

Highclere Castle Review

Back in February I booked tickets to go and visit the home of Downton Abbey, Highclere Castle. It’s only open for two months of the year and as a lover of both Downton Abbey and historic buildings it was somewhere I really wanted to visit. So I bought our tickets – £12.50 for adults and children under 4 are free – and forgot about it until the day came round…
