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 ….

Bouldering at Buckstones

Bouldering at Buckstones

The weather has been gorgeous for the last couple of days. It started off cold but by lunchtime the sun was out and the Pennines were beginning to show the first signs of spring. I do love spring afternoons and evenings on the Moors and it is a great time to stroll around and watch the sunset. The kids looked like they needed a bit of an adventure so I suggested we go bouldering at favourite spot near home called Buckstones.
Tumbling Waterfalls and Campfires

Tumbling Waterfalls and Campfires

Team McLean absolutely loved camping at Fisherground, Eskdale. After a rather terrifying drive over Hardknott Pass we arrived safe and sound. The weather wasn't particularly great but our boys don't seem to mind getting wet. There is something a little magical about Fisherground, with an adventure playground, pond complete with tyre rafts and it's very own steam locomotive station it's a family paradise.

No Flying for Us ... Camping's the Way To Go

No Flying for Us ... Camping's the Way To Go

Last year Team Thompson made a unanimous holiday decision (after a disastrous long haul flight with two under 3s) that if we couldn't get there by car we wouldn't go... well certainly not for another couple of years. As a result, we have now embraced the world of camping, complete with family tent, blow up beds, portable stove and giant cool box.

Pirates of the Dorset Coast

Pirates of the Dorset Coast

We are lucky enough to live in Dorset with 3 year old twins, and there are so many free outdoor things to do. My husband and I love sailing and we are determined to introduce Bill and Evie to as much outdoor life as can. This day was the first time they had been out on the dinghy in their new Crewsaver life jackets and they were so proud!

Pucks Glen

Pucks Glen

We have just returned from a wonderful week’s holiday in Argyll. It is a great place to visit with mountains, sea, forests and plenty besides. We visited an amazing place called Pucks Glen which is near Dunoon. If you want to start the visit off in style, take the Calmac ferry from Greenock to Dunoon and head north along the A815.

Leaving the Big Smoke for a Glorious Life on a Smallholding in Devon

Leaving the Big Smoke for a Glorious Life on a Smallholding in Devon

We've just made the great escape from deepest darkest South London to gorgeous green Devon. We're setting up a smallholding just outside Stockland in East Devon. We've got started with some serious veg patch digging and orchard pruning, and a couple of weeks ago our slightly bald ex-battery chickens moved in too.

A Walk Round the Ribblehead Viaduct

A Walk Round the Ribblehead Viaduct

January 2011: A beautiful, clear, but very cold day. Went for a walk round the Ribblehead Viaduct. James was more taken by the huge frozen puddles with thick crusts of ice, rather than the soaring splendour of the 24-arch viaduct, until we stood underneath it and he could hear how every sound was magnified.

Bring on the Snow

Bring on the Snow

I dont know about you but we are all missing the snow. OK I know it causes a nightmare for driving, shopping and working but all that aside it is a great deal of fun. Over the last few years we seem to be having some proper winter weather for once and admit it, a day off work playing in the snow with the kids is quite a laugh.
