There is no better time to go camping than during the summertime. The sun will ensure you can enjoy plenty of outdoor activities as a family, while the nights will be more comfortable for your child to enjoy a good night’s rest. Read our tips on how to plan an unforgettable camping trip with children.
We love Woolacoombe, we have been there a few times and we have always been so lucky with the weather. Booking a family fun camping trip seemed like a brilliant idea. We have never been to such a large campsite before, there was so much to do Woolacoombe Bay you won 5 stars from us! I read my top tips for camping with small children before we went, handy tips.
When you go camping with the family, you have to make sure that everyone is happy and more importantly, comfy. Getting the right camping gear is essential to making sure everyone is happy. Everything from the right sleeping bag, air bed and the right plate to eat your breakfast on. It all helps to making sure the camping trip is as pleasant as it can be. This is my list of must have products from Millets to make your camping trip easier.
Firstly, despite the truly British weather providing the rain showers and cold winds, the family learnt a lot and had lots of fun in the process. Running around the field, trying out new foods and talking to everyone in sight, including laughing and talking when Bill Odie and Mark Avery were talking. I was so embarrassed! We had a glamping experience from Hertz, which made the weekend a bit more special and I learnt a great deal about organisation, creativity, nature and YouTube (post to follow).
We took a lovely little trip to the Peak District this weekend with our friends, The Effords and we had a fabulous time. We arrived Saturday lunchtime, set up camp and had an amazing adventure. Even in the rain on Sunday night and Monday morning! Here are some of the best bits:
The usual sounds of an English campsite: air pumps filling up the inflatable mattresses, small children giggling, screaming and crying (the crying is normally our children). As I sit here in the campsite, the sun is setting, I started to think about the essentials and wondered what my essential and top tips for other families would be. Before I knew it, I had a list:
I love spontaneous trips with the family and last weekend was no exception, before the poorlies hit the Constant household anyway, we took to the motorway and had a camping adventure at Happisburgh beach. One of favourite beaches because the kids and dogs can run free without a care in the world, the odd seal to spot and lots going on to take photos of (the most important factor haha). Here is our trip, in photos:
Last weekend we headed off to Wales, as you do, for a little camping trip – we wanted to get the essence that we were out of the country but not too far away, it was so lovely to stay in the valleys and the forest the scenery was beautiful. I think next time we will stay a little longer to make the most of the walks and beautiful things around us. My camera broke so you will have to make do with my iPhone photos this week!
It was our first camping trip with both little ones this weekend and it was especially for Daddy’s birthday (which was Sunday), we took a trip to Norfolk and stayed at Happisburgh. For those of you who haven’t been there before it is not pronounced HAPP-IS-BURG like it reads – it is actually pronounced Hays-borough. Don’t ask…
