Isle of Wight – 5 Family Favourites on Adventure Island

Families have been visiting the Isle of Wight for nearly two centuries and the island’s tourist board has been promoting 2017 as the Year of Family Adventures – but, of course, any year is ideal for family adventures on this beautiful lump of rock sitting around three miles off the English mainland. As the tourist [...]

YHA Ambleside

You’ll be hard pressed to find a hostel in a better location. Sitting on the banks of Lake Windermere, the commanding YHA Ambleside offers breathtaking views across England’s largest natural lake from many of its rooms. Being a popular hostel, it’s seemingly busy at all times, particularly with large parties of students. We stayed for [...]

YHA Honister Hause

YHA Honister Hause might not boast the amenities of other hostels, such as wi-fi or reliable mobile phone signal, and, if I’m honest, isn't the best looker among the myriad properties owned by the YHA. But that aside, this place has much to offer its visitors and we thoroughly enjoyed staying there this summer.  [...]

Aqua Sphere Kameleon Goggles

Sourcing swimming goggles for one’s own use or perhaps for your kids can often be tricky. Sometimes, it’s not until you start using them that you discover that, maybe, you should have opted for a different design or size. For the run of trips planned for the recent summer holidays, we knew it was time [...]

Hangloose – Adventures in Cornwall

Adrenalin junkies will love Hangloose, Cornwall’s “home of adventure”, which is situated alongside the Eden Project, one of the county’s top tourist attractions. After visiting the Eden Project, we decided to test our nerve at Hangloose, which offers, among other white-knuckle thrills, hair-raising activities like The Drop, Gravity and Skywire. Well, when I say we [...]

Using SkyParkSecure for Southampton Airport Parking

If you’re looking to book airport parking, an airport hotel or want to relax in a lounge before catching your flight, try using SkyParkSecure for a seamless, hassle-free service.  I booked airport parking via the company when I flew out of Southampton Airport on a recent press trip and I’d certainly use them again. As [...]

Eden Project

The Eden Project story is a fascinating example of how redundant land can be reclaimed and transformed into an award-winning, world-famous attraction which should be on everyone’s bucket list; and if that wasn’t enough, it’s a well-respected educational charity, too. (c) Richard Webber Tim Smit’s creation began when a china clay pit was [...]

Shrewsbury 2017

I said in my previous review of Shrewsbury that I wanted an excuse to revisit the town and fortunately the chance arose, just over 2 years since we last trod the pavements of this historic town. This time around we stayed at the Lion and Pheasant Town House Hotel. It’s ideally situated in the popular [...]

BridgeStreet Serviced Apartments – Liverpool One

We’d recommend the concept of serviced apartments. Not only do you enjoy all the amenities associated with a hotel room, but you have the space, comfort, privacy and facilities of home. It’s perfect for families who – like us – enjoy catering for themselves. Being a bunch of veggies and vegans, it’s sometimes a chore [...]

The Boathouse Inn & Riverside Rooms – Chester

We visited Chester recently and enjoyed being based in the Riverside Rooms. Being a family of four, we occupied two downstairs rooms and found them very comfortable.  The Boathouse Inn sits on the banks of the River Dee while the purpose-built rooms are situated behind the pub. Opened in 2016, the accommodation is a combination [...]
