Pony Fun at Redwings Horse Sanctuary Caldecott

The boys love anything equine: horses, ponies, donkeys. If it has four legs and you can pet it then they’re beyond enthusiastic! That’s why one of our favourite places to go for a long walk is the Redwings Horse Sanctuary in Caldecott. This is the largest Redwings visitor centre in the UK, and is homeContinue reading “Pony Fun at Redwings Horse Sanctuary Caldecott”

Where to Visit Santa for Christmas 2021

It’s that time of the year again! With less than 100 days ’til Christmas, now is the perfect time to start thinking about booking your Christmas 2021 Santa experience. In fact, some of the experiences local to us opened up bookings (and sold out too!) more than a month ago. We try to do somethingContinue reading “Where to Visit Santa for Christmas 2021”

Exploring the Sainsbury Centre Sculpture Park in Norwich With Kids

The Sainsbury Centre, based on the UEA campus, is an art gallery, museum and cafĂ©. Primarily focused on world art, the centre itself is free to access and is a wonderful place to pass an hour in its own right. But the Sainsbury Centre also offers a sculpture park which spreads out across the UEAContinue reading “Exploring the Sainsbury Centre Sculpture Park in Norwich With Kids”

Hotel Review: Insotel Cala Mandia Resort and Spa, Mallorca

Thanks to the pandemic, it has been 18 months since we last went on holiday overseas, and we definitely made the right choice of hotel to reintroduce ourselves into the world of travel with. To be perfectly honest, we’re usually quantity over quality travellers, preferring to take more frequent and longer trips in budget-friendly hotels.Continue reading “Hotel Review: Insotel Cala Mandia Resort and Spa, Mallorca”

Riding Ponies at Rancho Cala Mandia

I’m a big fan of supporting/promoting small businesses, and we stumbled across this one when we were exploring Cala Mandia (the village we were staying in in Mallorca). Located down a narrow dirt track behind our hotel, the ranch is home to 3 ponies, 16 horses, and a gorgeous elderly donkey. In the mornings, betweenContinue reading “Riding Ponies at Rancho Cala Mandia”

Visiting the Drach Caves and Porto Cristo in Mallorca: Fun For All The Family

One of the biggest and most famous attractions in Mallorca are the Drach Caves. Whenever a local asked what we were planning to see or do during our stay, they all told us we would regret not seeing their famous caves: and they were right! Beautiful, enormous, awe-inspiring…it would be easy to run out ofContinue reading “Visiting the Drach Caves and Porto Cristo in Mallorca: Fun For All The Family”

Flying with Kids During the Coronavirus Pandemic (Our Flight to Mallorca)

Last week we took our first overseas trip since the coronavirus pandemic began. As frequent flyers, we love being in the airport, but this trip felt very different. Because we didn’t know what to expect, I was actually feeling pretty nervous about flying with the kids (and flying at all, to be honest!). With thatContinue reading “Flying with Kids During the Coronavirus Pandemic (Our Flight to Mallorca)”

Practical Tips: The Medical Kit We Take on Every Holiday with Kids

It’s not very exciting (it’s certainly not as exciting as choosing which kaftans and earrings to take, which is my favourite pre-holiday pastime) but before we go on any holiday, particularly a holiday overseas, I always check that my medical supply kit is fully loaded. So many basic medicines, such as paracetamol and ibuprofen, areContinue reading “Practical Tips: The Medical Kit We Take on Every Holiday with Kids”

Three Days in London: A Whirlwind Itinerary for Travelling with Kids

We have just returned from a whirlwind three day trip to London: we clocked up just over 20,000 steps a day, crammed in so many activities that Boy8 said that his ‘London bucketlist was complete’ and munched on more calories than I’m prepared to calculate. Mr MumTravel and I lived in London before we hadContinue reading “Three Days in London: A Whirlwind Itinerary for Travelling with Kids”

Review: A Family Day Out to Legoland Windsor, Summer 2021

I have a love/hate relationship with Legoland Windsor, considering it both the best and the worst of British theme parks: and much of that has to do with how busy the park is on the day you visit! The mini land is exceptional, a place we could happily get lost for hours. Regardless of howContinue reading “Review: A Family Day Out to Legoland Windsor, Summer 2021”
