New Forest Fairy Festival Review

New Forest Fairy Festival

Do you believe in Fairies? Nestling in the lea of a hill where time stood still for hundreds of years surrounded the mighty oaks, tree spirits and woodland creatures, live the Forest Folk, under every leaf, behind every tree you might see them and listen for the fairy bell and they will appear, their gossamer wings glinting in the sunlight. The New Forest Fairy Festival is held in Burley, New Forest and is a weekend packed with entertainment and workshops for the whole family and you are all (including Dad’s) positively encouraged to dress in your finest Fairy and Elf… Continue Reading “New Forest Fairy Festival Review”

The Shark Hotel at Thorpe Park Review

The Shark Hotel at Thorpe Park Review

The Shark Hotel at Thorpe Park is situated inside the resort itself and sits on the banks of an unexpectedly serene lake and is the perfect crash pad for thrill seekers who want two days of fun at the theme park. A large model shark greets guests at reception and rooms are accessed via its mouth. Checking in took more time than it needed to in my opinion however we were given all the information that we needed about access to the park and wristbands that would give us fast track access to the rides between 9am and 11am the… Continue Reading “The Shark Hotel at Thorpe Park Review”

I have lived in Bournemouth for many years and am a big fan of the LV Kidzone scheme which runs through the school summer holidays was first launched back in 1996. The scheme works by giving children free colour-coded wristbands that match-up with clearly marked sections of the 7 mile long seafront. Families write their contact numbers on the wristbands and sit in the marked sections to allow beach staff to reunite them if they accidentally get separated throughout the day.… Continue Reading “Bournemouth Beach Safety with LV Kidzone”

The Big Camp Bestival Linky 2016

Camp Bestival

It is back to earth with a bump after a fabulous weekend at Camp Bestival which more than delivered everything it promised from fun activities to try, great music, scrummy food and rounding it all up with an impressive firework finale. My Camp Bestival linky for 2015 was very popular with lots of people visiting to research the event, so I have decided to put another one together this year as there is so much to see and do that there just isn’t time to fit it all in and everyone has a completely different experience of what Camp Bestival has to… Continue Reading “The Big Camp Bestival Linky 2016”
