Visiting Jamaica with Kids | AD

As a child I didn’t travel at all – I went abroad for the first time when I was nineteen. But, Dave and I are determined to show LP and Little Man as much of the world as possible. We want them to experience different climates, learn history and different cultures, try new food and feel white sand between their toes. We like to have a rough plan of the…

A Family Break at Porthleven Holiday Cottages – Beach Cottage

We spent the second half of our week in Cornwall at one of the Porthleven Holiday Cottages. They have a whole host of cottages around Porthleven and it’s a part of Cornwall we hadn’t been to before so we were excited to stay and explore a little. What was our first impressions of Porthleven Holiday Cottages ? The great thing about Porthleven Holiday Cottages is that they have an office…


A Family Break at The Alverton Hotel in Truro, Cornwall

We love exploring new parts of the country and staying at family friendly hotels so when we were invited to spend the start of half term at The Alverton Hotel in Truro I had no idea what to expect. As we live just outside London our Cornwall knowledge is limited to two holidays a few years ago but we were excited to go back – especially the children, who I…


A Family Weekend at Jurys Inn Hinckley Island Hotel

It’s always lovely finding family friendly hotels to stay at. At the start of half term we were invited to stay at the Jurys Inn Hinckley Island Hotel and I realised it’s in one of our favourite parts of the country. It has so many National Trust places nearby and is only half an hour from Drayton Manor – so that was our weekend sorted! What were our first impressions…

Billesley Manor Hotel is near Stratford Upon Avon and is set in the most beautiful grounds, with great views and…


The Florida Dream

I’ve talked about my childhood quite a lot on this blog. I grew up in a council house with working class parents – a dad who worked around the clock, especially at Christmas and a Mum who was always there when I got home from school, always walked me to school and at times left in the evening to go and work a cleaning job. They both worked so hard…


What do we look for in a Family Holiday Abroad?

When I was a child my family weren’t in a position to holiday abroad but each year we would go camping. These holidays instilled in me a love of the great outdoors and a real love of quality family time – making sure that we worked to live rather than lived to work. Now that I have children of my own that family time is so important and so we…
