Family travel tips #12

The summer holidays are still in full swing here. I feel like we’re packing things in to make up for the lack of time with the girls the rest of the year when they’re back to school. We’ve been on some fabulous days out, from theme parks to castles to secret gardens and everything in between. I hope your summer holidays have been equally exciting and I’m looking forward to reading about everyone’s adventures.

Featured posts

Perhaps it’s due to the summer holidays, but last weeks posts were all really exciting. There was one in particular though that I found incredibly inspirational. This post from Bébé Voyage is an interview with a globetrotting mum. It features Evie from Mumpack Travel, who is currently travelling with her daughter for two years. It has given me serious wanderlust and I can’t wait until we’re able to do the same thing.

Carrie is featuring a fabulous post from Wandering Expat Family about Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen. There is much more to the gardens than you would expect from the title. It is in fact an amusement park with rides, a pantomime and even its own marching band.

Family travel tips #12

My post this week gives you some tips for camping in beautiful Kielder Forest in Northumberland. This is a stunning part of the country with breathtaking scenery. But it’s not for everyone. There was mud, rain and midges. Not for the faint hearted, but we loved it nonetheless.

Carrie is linking up her post about children’s afternoon tea at the Georgian House Hotel. I personally love the idea of a children’s afternoon tea. This is one of my favourite meals and I have always resented having to share it with the girls. Allowing them to have one of their own would solve all my problems.

Kielder Forest Northumberland UK | Kielder is the most remote village in England. From here, you have easy access to Kielder forest and Kielder Water manmade lake. The forest is the perfect place for mountain biking even with young children. The area is dog friendly and a great place to see wildlife and get back in touch with nature. But look out for the rain and the midges!
