Why I Scout! – Shirejammin’ at home challenge

Sunday, May 31st, 2020

On top of my job, family and computing interests I’m also an assistant Cub Scout leader and a member of the District Executive Committee (Charity Trustee of the Scout District). During the current Coronovirus / Covid-19 pandemic we are unable to meet face-to-face but scouting is still happening through virtual conference sessions I am running […]

Camping trip to Bala Lake in Snowdonia Wales

Friday, August 16th, 2019

This year our main holiday was at Easter. We still wanted to do something during the summer but having spent a lot on the previous holiday it needed to be something less expensive. One option was for a camping trip. Our son loved the idea, but not so much our daughter. It’s not that she […]

Camping at Morcambe – Morcambe Seaside Festival

Thursday, August 14th, 2014

It’s been almost a year since we had our camping trip during the Morecambe Seaside Festival, but here’s a quick run through of what we did for anyone looking to do something similar this year. We like to try and plan at least one family camping trip a year, we decided upon Morecambe as it’s […]

Review of the Vango Woburn 400 – 4 person tent

Thursday, May 30th, 2013

Camping with children can be challenging, especially when there is only one adult to put the tent up (in my case due to my wife’s work patterns and summer holiday cover). I quickly decided that I would not be able to put up our family tent (Easy camp Go Taranto 600) on my own. Last […]

Camping at Golden Sands Haven, Mablethorpe near Skegness

Friday, November 30th, 2012

Golden Sands at Haven is at Mablethorpe in Lincolnshire, close to Skegness. We have visited the site before staying in a caravan when our first child was still a baby (earlier review Haven Golden Sand with a baby). This is the first time we have been camping there and we had a short 2 night […]

Monday, October 8th, 2012

After my first camping trip alone with the kids at Gullivers campsite near Milton Keynes our next camping trip was to Kiln Park, Haven site at Tenby in South Wales. Tenby is near the most south west part of Wales and so was quite a drive for a short trip (3 nights), but it’s a […]

Day out at Gulliver’s Splash Zone

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

We visited Gulliver’s Splash Zone whilst Camping at Gulliver’s Land Campsite in Milton Keynes. We had travelled down to the camp site during the day and so after putting them tent up we just had a couple of hours of the afternoon left before evening. Splash Zone is a children’s indoor water play area. It’s […]

Camping at Gullivers Land Caravan and Camping Club site – Milton Keynes

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

This trip to Gulliver’s Land camping site is the first where I’ve taken my children camping without my wife or other family member. It was just me and the two kids aged 7 and 4. The reason that my wife wasn’t able to make it was that this was during the school holidays and we […]

We stayed at the Caravan and Camping Club site at Keswick. The site is located at the edge of Derwent Water in the Lake District National Park in Cumbria. The site has direct access to the lake and as you can see from the photo below it has a great view. After check-in we were […]
