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 ….

Intrepid Adventurers on the Other Side of the World

Intrepid Adventurers on the Other Side of the World

The summer holiday has been full of exciting adventures: climbing to lighthouses, visiting seal colonies on the New Zealand coast, biking trips and picnics in fields of spiders but today in the tent, everyone woke with a sense of anticipation. We organised breakfast, packed a picnic lunch and we were off. Wow! I wish it really was that quick! Mathilda, the intrepid adventurer at 3 years old on foot and Isabel, 18 months high on Daddy's shoulders with the best view.

Ullswater in the Rain!

Ullswater in the Rain!

We had decided to go down to the lake with some friends, and being the Lake District it had decided to rain, but all the kids were still up for it. We took our fishing rods as they wanted to go and catch some fish and off we went. The best thing about living here out of season is even though you don’t get the weather it is always so quiet everywhere, we were the only people down there.

Beside the Seaside, Beside the Sea...

Beside the Seaside, Beside the Sea...

Team Thompson are incredibly lucky to live only a few streets away from our local beach. As a result, whatever the weather, the kids are keen to head there as many times a week as possible. In one direction lies the Yacht Club (we saw a small Regatta on Sunday afternoon) and in the other, a coastal path leading to Ballymacormick Point (a National Trust Wildlife Reserve).

Feeding the Lambs at Lago Lanco, Chile

Feeding the Lambs at Lago Lanco, Chile

For my youngest daughter's first birthday we went with a group of friends to an Agrotourism centre close to Lango Ranco in Southern Chile. We stayed in cabañas and, once the children were kitted out in their outdoor gear,they enjoyed the various activities that an agrotourism centre has to offer, namely, feeding the animals, collecting eggs, stomping around in the mud and riding on horses.

Four Seasons in One Week Up in The Highlands

Four Seasons in One Week Up in The Highlands

What a week of weather it’s been up here folks. Last weekend the wee man was full of the cold so we stuck close to home, cosy in front of the fire while the snow came down, and down ... it didn’t hang around long but we managed to do a quick snowman and plenty of snow angels! Felt kind of sorry for Ali who was out on the river in a blizzard, but that’s the price you pay for having a fun job!

In Search of 'The Perfect Stick'

In Search of 'The Perfect Stick'

“Mummy,” said James, “I’ve been good today so please can we go to Thorp Perrow?” James is always thrilled by a trip to Thorp Perrow Arboretum. He was especially delighted today, because the stream (where he likes to play pooh-sticks) was flowing properly again, and because we were given some bread by the nice lady in the tearoom so that we could feed the ducks.
