It seems like so much longer than a week ago that we were on holiday in the sunshine. Whilst I’m missing chilled out days strolling by the coast and sitting around a campfire, it’s actually a relief to get back into a routine. The holiday comedown Last week was just the break we all needed. We had a lovely week camping as a family, quickly followed by a mini-break at the fabulous Bank House hotel and spa for me. Our journey back from holiday was long and rather tiring. The only problem with using our trailer tent is that you…

Last week, we loaded up the car and headed for a week camping in Northumberland. It’s a part of the country I’d never visited before, but it was such a beautiful area we’ll definitely head there again. Whilst we were there, we spent a day on Lindisfarne Holy Island. This fascinating island has great historical significance and the coastal views are stunning. Here are a few tips if you decide to visit. 1.

So knowing that there is a sport you loved…

Travelling with children sometimes leaves me feeling like I need a holiday to recover. So after a fabulous week camping with the girls, I headed to the Bank House Hotel in Worcestershire with my sister for some much needed relaxation. About the Bank House The Bank House hotel is located in the picturesque Worcestershire countryside between Malvern and Worcester. They cater for individuals, business functions, weddings and other parties. There is a fabulous restaurant, a relaxing spa and comfortable, spacious bedrooms. We stayed in an executive double room that was set up as a twin for us. When we went into the room, we were…
