Stowe Gardens

We’ve been to Stowe before, so I won’t bore you with the details again. Last week I was eager to spend some time with Finn. Working 50 hours a week doesn’t leave a lot of free time so I wanted to make the most of my day off. […]

Sheringham Park, Norfolk

One of the challenges when camping with a toddler is getting them to nap during the day. We’re lucky in that Finn is a very good sleeper, and will quite happily fall asleep in the pushchair or car. It’s obviously too hot, and too bright, to sleep in […]

Hardwick Hall

I’m always looking for an interesting day out, and so decided to fit in another outing on the way back from our Peak District mini break. We called in at Hardwick Hall, our second National Trust visit after Longshaw, and had a fantastic time. It had all the […]

Longshaw Estate

Last week we headed to the Peak District for a few days. It was kind of a mini honeymoon, but also just because we fancied a break after all the wedding craziness. Despite some unfavorable forecasts, it didn’t rain. I was secretly hoping I’d be able to dress […]

Stowe Night Run

I love running but I do find it difficult to keep motivated. I try to give myself something to aim for, whether that’s a PB at the parkrun or signing up for a future event. This year I was trying to find something a little different, and then I […]

Discover the Heddon Valley

Our trip to the Heddon Valley was my favourite walk of our recent holiday in North Devon. Ever since I’d seen photos of this beautiful spot, I knew it was going to be a great outing. Even the drive over there treated us to some spectacular scenery. We […]

Stowe Gardens

With all the baby/new house/engagement excitement of last year, I keep forgetting that we managed quite a few outings as well. I recently came across some great photos of our trip to Stowe Gardens last October so thought I’d put a few up. I bet the gardens look […]

Aira Force

We also squeezed in a visit to the impressive Aira Force while in the area. This 65ft waterfall is well worth a look. There’s an easy walk through serene woodland to reach the falls which is great for families. It also makes a good starting point for those who want […]

Lyveden New Bield, Northants

Since Luke has got his new camera, I’m suddenly under a lot more pressure to seek out walks that are especially picturesque. Now if we lived in an AONB or a national park that would be a breeze. Northampton is proving more of a challenge. Certainly far from […]
