We like to write and share some of our days out and holidays. We try to cover as much as we can in the adventures section of the site.

Animal Tracking with children

Animal Tracking with children

Before becoming a mum spending time walking in mud and splashing in muddy puddles was not on my list of ways to have a good time. Things have certainly changed! We spend so much time outside and living in the country we are lucky to have so much nature on the doorstep. As part of the Autumnal RSPB challenge we have been out and about looking for animals and animal tracks. The RSPB also have a downloadable sheet to try…

Pond Dipping and rock pooling

Have you heard about the RSPB wild challenge? Sometimes it is helpful to have some extra ideas for things to do outdoors. If you are struggling for some ideas then pop over and give the wild challenge a go. The children (and us adults) are really enjoying working through the list of activities. We have already built a bug hotel and hedgehog cafe so next on the challenge list we thought we would do rock pooling and pool dipping. Both activities…

Hampton Court Castle and Garden.

Hampton Court Castle and Garden.

Today we visited a hidden gem in Herefordshire. Hampton Court Castle and Gardens can be found between Hereford and Leominster (close to the junction of the A49 and A417). Free Parking, it cost £13 for adults to go around the castle and gardens and £7.25 for children over 5 (under 5 free). You can pay to just go around the gardens and that would save you a few pounds off each entry. Set in beautiful grounds you can easily spend…
