Little Trekkers Ambassadors

We must have the best customers in the World. They have been telling us for years about all the great things they get out and do with their families and we thought it was about time the World knew about it. This is not a ‘Places to go with the kids’ resource in a traditional sense. There’s lots of good websites out there already that can tell you the opening times and entry costs into the many hundreds of attractions that there are across the country.

This is about real experiences, in real places, by real families who get out there in this magnificent country of ours and do stuff. Great stuff! Stuff that you will look back on and remember for the rest of your life. Places that you may never have thought to go, things that you may never have thought to do. Told by those who have been there and done it, and want to pass it on to inspire other families to do the same. These are our Little Trekkers Ambassadors. They lead the way ….

Autumn Tryptych (Part 3)

Autumn Tryptych (Part 3)

Batsford Arboretum is a firm favourite with our Little Trekkers. More compact than Westonbirt and Stourhead, it has an intimate and welcoming atmosphere, and you really do feel at liberty to wander amongst the trees. Set on a hillside with superb views over the surrounding countryside, it’s a fantastic setting.

Bogs in Bogs

Bogs in Bogs

If you ever plan to visit Aberdeenshire, come in the autumn! It’s the one dry (ish) season and the whole countryside bursts into brilliant colour in one final blaze before winter sets in. But do remember your wellies – this is Scotland, after all, so ‘dry’ is just a relative term. And so this is the perfect time of year for Mini to test a pair of Bogs wellies!

Homemade Bonfire Night 2017

Homemade Bonfire Night 2017

So for the past few years we have been going to the local bonfire night, there is usually one in the village and the kids can muck around with their friends in the mud. I guess the muddy mess might have been easier to contain with new Bogs as waterproof footwear but it was not to be! This year however the whole of Lochaber failed to get a license to run any bonfire event! Strange. The nearest one was a 1 ½ hours drive away in either Oban or Inverness!

Amazing Glendurgan

Amazing Glendurgan

“Look at this picture, Mummy! I wish we could go there again. It was amazing!” James was showing me a photo of the famous maze at the National Trust’s Glendurgan Garden. Normally, when he says something like this, I have to smile sympathetically and explain that the place is just too far away to visit. But since we were actually in Cornwall, it was very easy to make a small boy very happy.

Night Woods

Night Woods

At the beginning of autumn we’d gone on a thoroughly enjoyable Ranger-led walk at dusk through some woodland. We’d spotted bats swooping and tracked them with some handheld detectors the Ranger had given us; we’d heard owls and (a little alarmingly when you can barely see) some bees somewhere nearby in a tree.

St Michael’s Moat

St Michael’s Moat

Sometimes, being a mother is like being a detective: you have to decipher lots of clues to work out what’s going on. So it was when Little Brother asked if we to go ‘to the place with the moat’. Given that we were actually in Cornwall at the time, once I’d put my ‘little grey cells’ to work and deduced that he meant ‘St Michaels’ Mount’, it was very easy to make a small boy very happy indeed.
