We’ve had our National Trust membership for over a year now and like to use it as often as we can. We’ve been to Sizergh Castle near Kendal in Cumbria a few times now but I’ve never written about it so I thought it was about time I did.Read more
Disclosure: We were provided with accommodation at The Quiet Site for the purpose of this review however all opinions are my own.
At the start of our half term week we were invited to stay in a Hobbit Hole at The Quiet Site near Ullswater in the Lake District. The boys had an in service day so we were able to head north early on the Friday to make the most of our weekend in the Lakes.Read more
We love going on holiday to the Lake District with our two young children – we’ve been at least once a year since Toby was born. All our previous holidays have been in cottages but when I won a two night stay in a glamping pod we were very happy to try something different. So what did we get up to in our 48 hours in the Lake District? Read more
Last week we spent four nights in the Lake District in a little cottage not far from Penrith. We only booked it about a month ago when I decided we needed a holiday having not been away since we went to Bluestone in March.
I’m sure none of you really want to read a blow by blow account of our week away but we took so many pictures that it seems a shame not to share some of them. So here it is, our week in pictures… Read more

Toby and Gabe love dinosaurs at the moment so on Saturday we decided to go up to Rheged in the Lake District to catch the last weekend of their Dinosaur Encounter exhibition. The exhibition has been brought to Rheged by the Natural History Museum and features ten animatronic dinosaurs plus a few other activities. Read more
I’m a little late with this post this week – the long weekend has put me all out of sync. Actually though the main reason is that I fell asleep when I was putting Toby to bed last night so I didn’t get round to getting my computer out!
Last week’s sun seems to have mostly disappeared this week and we’ve had a pretty quiet Easter weekend. Last Monday though we met my friend Claire and her twins at a park near Warrington (we do a lot of meeting in Warrington as it’s about half way between our houses). It was very busy with it being the school holidays but we found a quiet spot to have a picnic and the boys all had fun running around.
Gabe is a funny little character sometimes. Read more
