When the new year came we decided to search the web to book a family holiday as soon as possible, as we couldn’t wait for the summer. As it was still fairly early in the season we therefore went for Gran Canaria — where we knew we’d get the sun (because we all fancied some Vitamin D after a VERY long winter in the UK).

Over the last few weeks they…

I can’t believe I am saying this but I’ve actually never been to Cornwall before. I know! Everyone that I have spoken to absolutely loves this part of the UK; with its pretty towns, seaside charm and beautiful coastline. I’ve stayed all over the UK during my childhood and in adult life and yet this is a place I have never been to. Until now!

Our family holidays are a little like buses; we haven’t had one for ages and then two come along at once! Our March 2017 is looking quite booked up now with plenty of family travel & adventures, and I am starting to get super excited about them! The first holiday we are embarking upon is a weeks trip to Cornwall. I can’t believe I am…
