We love going to the Peak District and have been there a few times as a family. We have camped and more recently we stayed at a hotel in Sheffield where we drove into the Peaks every day. This time we walked up Kinder Scout on one of the hottest days this Summer (so far) and it was really nice to get back to an air conditioned hotel room. This is the route we took in the awesome Peak District.
Yes, Wells-Next-the-Sea is a long way to drive for the day. However, fuel costs besides it is a really great family day out without breaking the bank. The grown ups love it, the kiddies love it and the doggies love it too. It’s a win win day out for all the family. It is just beautiful to go for a Winter day trip.
We absolutely adore BeWILDerwood, it’s one of those places that both children and adults can enjoy. We last went to this woodland of fun a couple of years ago and it was fantastic, the children were slightly shorter for some activities but this certainly wasn’t the case this year.
We had a lovely afternoon at Wimpole Estates this week. We arrived just after midday and had a picnic by the main entrance, which was lovely and we spent the afternoon wondering around the grounds. It’s such a lovely spot and a lot of fun for the children. You can walk for hours around the house, farm and woodland.
I didn’t realise it was the first day of Spring on Sunday, until we got home from a trip to Home Farm at Wimpole Hall, a lovely National Trust estate near us. What a perfect way to spend the start of Spring, running around a beautiful location full of flowers and baby animals of course. The kids had a great time exploring and playing on the tractors.
