Mini Adventure: Camping at Little Meadows

The early summer had shown such glorious promise that me and my Mum decided to risk it and take the boys camping for a couple of nights in late August. We chose North Devon as it is an easy two and a half hour drive from Bath with some lovely sandy beaches. We decided to book a pitch at Little Meadows campsite between Ilfracombe and Combe Martin for three nights.

Châtel with the family

The annual family winter holiday and this years chosen destination, after much research, was Châtel. Part of the massive Portes Du Soliel ski area, which we have visited before, but not stayed in Châtel, which is just a stones throw from the Swiss border.

After the heaviest snow falls in Bath that I can ever remember we were lucky to make it to France at all! We had to dig the car out of our street and our Thomas Cook flight was the only one to leave from Bristol Airport on Saturday morning. It was a well deserved glass of vino when we arrived – unfortunately the fun had only just begun!

Balanceability

I heard about Balanceability, the UK’s first and only accredited ‘learn to cycle’ programme for children, through a Tweet from @Love2cyclebath and thought it sounded like something my little boy might like to try.

New Forest bank holiday weekend

I love exploring parts of the UK that I haven’t been too before so when planning our bank holiday get-a-away we decided to head to the New Forest, which despite being pretty much on our doorstep we hadn’t visited before!

Midsummer Paddle

Had the the opportunity to do some kayaking whilst camping in Studland the other weekend. Kayaking is not something I do very often, but I’ve always enjoyed it. We were on our annual girlie camping weekend so the five of us decided to give it a go, what could possible go wrong!

We headed north last week with a group of mates to combine watching the UCI World Cup Downhill race at Fort William with a bit of an explore of the west coast of Scotland.
