Bluestone National Park Resort Review

We visited Bluestone National Park Resort once before, about 18 months ago when Little Man was six months old and we had a week of teething hell and rain. Add to that the fact that half the Adventure Centre was closed off for Kingdom of the Elves and really our holiday could have been better. We were keen to see what a family self catering holiday at Bluestone was like…

Royal Caribbean, Anthem of the Seas – A Family Holiday?

We were invited to spend last weekend on the Royal Caribbean Anthem of the Seas cruise ship as part of their ‘shakedown’ before they opened to the public to see how it fared as a family holiday. It was a truly amazing weekend and I wrote about my first impressions here. What is Royal Caribbean like as Family Holiday? The reason for us being invited onto Anthem of the Seas as…


Packing for our trip to Wales | AD

In May we are off to Wales for a week to Bluestone National Park Resort. We were lucky enough to stay there previously in November 2013 but as the children were so young and the weather so terrible we didn’t really get to explore much of what Wales had to offer. This time we are planning on getting out of the resort more, exploring Wales and going on some day…


Planning a Weekend with Royal Caribbean #AnthemoftheSeas

Last October I was lucky enough to spend a day on Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas when it was docked in Southampton.

Well this weekend we are doing just that! Royal Caribbean have…


Our Honeymoon – Mexico

Our wedding has to be the single largest expense of our lives aside from buying a house. After 15 months of saving, planning and stress we wanted a honeymoon that would allow us to really relax and wind down after the wedding, somewhere we could enjoy the first weeks of our married life and somewhere that had lots for us to do as well as relaxing days on the beach.…


Holidaying in the UK | AD

I have always been a fan of holidaying in the UK and since having children I have passed this love of UK holidays over to Hubby – We’d much rather be able to drive to a home from home in this country whilst the children are in nappies than have to take so much with us abroad. The UK has so many beautiful places and we are slowly getting to…


Hoburne Bashley Holiday Park, Hampshire – Review

Last weekend we were lucky enough to spend a few days at Hoburne Bashley Holiday Park in New Milton, Hampshire in the heart of the New Forest. We booked the self catering weekend away a few months ago and were really looking forward to it – Bashley is Hoburne’s flagship caravan park and has been undergoing a refurbishment on their swimming pool so we were excited to see what Hoburne…
